Today Is Orphan Sunday
Orphan Sunday is finally here!
Pray that Jesus' message of taking care of the orphan is heard around the world today.
Pray that the church steps up to do what Christ has called us to do in taking care of the poor, the widows, and the orphans.
Pray for the vulnerable children who are in desperate need of loving families.
Pray for organizations like Show Hope, Amazima, Bibles for Orphans, and other adoption & foster care organizations.
Pray for families who are adopting or fostering children.
Pray that whoever is elected President on Tuesday will continue the Adoption Tax Credit.
As the organization behind today has on their site:
"Today, ask God that of the 2 billion Christians in the world, 7% would show hope to a single orphan, looking after the child in their distress. Ask the Lord to convict the church around the world that if we did this, there would effectively be no more orphans. Ask the Lord to show each of His followers that we can each do something. Within your prayers, choose a country or countries to pray specifically over and pray for nations within that country to rise up and be willing to care for orphans."
Seek the Lord on how you are to care for orphans on a day that is meant to focus on what we, as believers, can do for the least of these.
