Prayer

As most of you know I went to China last year. It took my heart and I fell in love. End of story. I love this kids and not a day goes by that I do not think of them and think of ways for me to get back to them. Last year, 5 days with the kids was not enough. I have embarked on the journey of looking into ways of going back to China and staying with an orphanage/foster care for more than 10 days...maybe the whole summer if I'm lucky. I ask that you would pray for clarity and wisdom in what God wants me to do. I feel so hindered here. I feel like my summer is wasting away and watching tv and doing summer reading is helping NO ONE.

I found of VO's website (you can click their little link on the sidebar) a prayer. I ask that you would also say this prayer for the orphans. Those who are only numbers, but in God's heart they each have a name and each have a little personality, that personally changes who I am.


Heavenly Father,
We pray for the children of the world who feel abandoned, that they may know you and your mercy.

We pray for the children whose only hope is the next meal, that you may become the center of their lives and they may know a greater purpose and hope.

We pray for those who are able to visit orphans that they will not delay in administering care, and that they will be effective in sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

We give thanks for your hand of protection and provision for children of the world who don't know a provider.

Thank you for revealing the way, the truth and the life of Jesus Christ, by your power may we show the world what you have shown us.

Amen 

Thank you so much ahead of time, because I know you will be praying for me and for those orphans.

With all my heart,
Charlie
