It’s me. You know me. So well. Better than I know myself. Some days I pray for understanding…some days I am at peace with the not understanding.
So, on the days when I seek your peace, so desperately, I cry out to You…I repeat Your very words back to You. Praying the Scriptures draws me into Your presence.
And the peace returns…
Father God…you are Father to the fatherless. thank you.
Watch over each child’s life. I know you will not slumber or sleep, but keep them from harm. Watch over their lives, their coming and going, both now and forevermore. Psalm 121:3-8
Give these precious ones the knowledge that nothing will separate them from your love. Bring someone into their lives that will tell them about You. When trouble, hardship, persecution, danger, or any need arises, let them remember that we are MORE THAN CONQUERORS and that truly, nothing, NONE OF THIS can separate them from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans 835-39
Lord, you have called each of these sweet faces by name and they belong to You. When they pass through the waters, be with them; when they pass through the rivers, do not let them be swept away. When they walk through the fire, do not let them be burned. And when they emerge from these trials, let them know that You are the Lord, that You are their God, that You are the Holy One of Israel, and that You are their Savior. Isaiah 43:1-3
I pray that each of these children…that I may never meet…will confess with their mouths that YOU ARE LORD, that they would believe in their hearts that You have raised Christ from the dead. Cause each of them to call on Your name, Lord, and save them. Romans 10:9, 13
Lord Jesus, thank You that You know the plans You have for each of these precious ones in Your sight. Plans to prosper them and not to harm them, plans to give hope and a future. Cause each of them to call upon you and come and pray to you, and then listen to them, O Lord. Let them seek you with all their hearts, and find You when they do seek You. Jeremiah 29:11-13
Father, thank You for Compassion and many other ministries around the world that come into these childrens lives and are the ANSWER to these prayers and many others.
