Praying Through Pre-Adoption Day 1

God is calling me to a month of prayer for our adoption. For every day in April, I will choose a verse that coincides with my prayer focus, and write a post on praying through pre-adoption. I am excited for this journey, and I hope that you will walk with me through it! We are looking ahead to May 1st--the day we we will prayerfully send in our application to All God's Children for the Ethiopian adoption program and begin our process!

Therefore, holy brothers, who share in the heavenly calling,
fix your thoughts on Jesus, the apostle and high priest whom we confess.
~Hebrews 3:1

While searching for a verse to meditate on, I came across this beautiful one. Today, I want to focus on praying about fixing my thoughts on Jesus, and giving God glory through His weaving of our adoption.

Today, our church did a theatrical production of The Borrowed Tomb. The storyline, coupled with the amazing acting, brought to life Jesus' life, death, and resurrection. It truly brought Jesus to LIFE for me! It reminded me that Jesus WAS alive, walking this very earth, and Jesus IS alive today.

Hebrews 3 goes on to say that the builder of a house has greater honor than the house itself. Every house is built by someone, but God is the builder of everything. EVERYTHING!

He is building our adoption. He is starting with the foundation, building us a "house". A family!

Prayer: Jesus, help us to fix our thoughts on You daily. We want to reflect on the blessings You have given us. Breathe in us Your liveliness! Revive us and let us always give You honor and praise!


  1. What a beautiful idea. Looking forward to following along. :)

  2. Amen! I'll be following you through this exciting month of preparation.

  3. Just seeing this now, but it's such a wonderful idea! God will definitely bless the efforts you are making to bring glory to His name through this adoption!
