I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone--for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
~1 Timothy 2:1-2
Today we are led to pray for those in authority over our adoption. God is the ultimate authority in all things, but there are a number of people that He has purposed to direct or influence our adoption in one way or another.
We want to pray today specifically for the staff at All God's Children, the government of the United States, and the government of Ethiopia.
We are very thankful for the effort they will be providing to help us on our journey of adoption. We pray that God will bless them and that He will be looked to for direction in all decisions.
God has placed all these people in their positions for a reason, and we pray that God's plan be lived out in their lives and actions.
Prayer: Jesus, thank you for those you have called to leadership. Please surround these people with Your love and strength. Guide them to do Your work and provide them with unending blessings.
