Bob Pierce, the founder of World Vision, prays, “Lord may my heart be broken by what breaks your heart.”
How different would the world be if we all prayed that prayer and acted on it?
A family who prayed and is acting on the call to take care of the fatherless are our dear friends Tracy and Rebecca Philbeck. This Sunday they fly to Ukraine to adopt three children.
Please be in prayer for them as they travel. Pray that fear would be replaced with peace, doubt with confidence, and that God guards and protects them as they walk in trust and obedience to His call. May they not be filled with anxiety but with hope, joy, patience, and the knowledge that they are not alone, that God is with them, and that there are many people here who are daily lifting them up in prayer. While they are in Ukraine, may they be lights shining in the darkness. Let them be transformed by this experience and see the truth of Jesus' words when He said, "Anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf is welcoming me" (Matthew 18:5).
