Prayer and fasting day
Daniel's case and that of several other adoptive families have things potentially going on tomorrow. "Tomorrow" is actually the middle of the night for us if our children are across one ocean or 12 hours ahead if they are across the other. In any event I feel that God has called me to a day of prayer and fasting for Daniel and the other children whose cases need real solid action and completions so that those children may be cleared to leave their orphanages and come home to waiting forever families. Proverbs 21:1 reminds me that "the heart of the king is in the hand of the Lord, Like rivers of water, HE turns it wherever He wishes............." It is my prayer that the "kings" in our adoptions: be they Department heads, consulates, Ministers, Presidents, OR even kings of the US government or that of our adoptive children, be moved by the Holy Spirit as we pray, and that we see (new) light at the end of our "tunnels" and completion of our adoptions coming to reality as a result of discussions, meetings, and documents presented on July 16, 2009.
