Orphans of God

I watched the video below and realized that, even though the world sees these children as orphans and they are essentially alone in the world, they are not left alone by the Father of us all. Unfortunately so many of them don't know this, they have no way of even knowing the name of Jesus or the concept of God as Father. My prayer today is that these children would find homes, that they would be granted the happiness of knowing a mom and dad or even just one or the other. But, even more than that I pray that they would be granted a chance to know God as Father, to know the love of Jesus, to see that even though in this world's eyes they are orphans, in God's eyes their are NO orphans.



Jesus, today, please hold each of these little ones in your arms. Let them know your love that will never leave nor forsake them. And, Lord, let us be Your arms to as many as we can reach, Father, drawing them in to our homes and into Your family. Thank you for Your Heart for the Orphans. Amen.

This is one of my all time favorite songs! My agency made an iMovie to it too for the orphans in Vietnam. I love the message.
