Flat Reed: Praying Reed Home
Prayer is pivotal in the lives of those who follow Christ. Abbey and I believe that wholeheartedly. Prayer has helped us get to the point where we are today in our spiritual, marital, personal, occupational, and parental lives.
Throughout this process we have prayed fervently for God's will to be done. When we chose to adopt from Taiwan, our prayers were able to be more directed. Once the homestudy was completed, Abbey and I began to pray for Reed's birthmom.
1. Reed's birthmom would have a place to sleep.
2. Reed's birthmom would have a good meal each day.
3. Reed's birthmom would have support and medical care.
Each of these prayers were answered above and beyond what we could have ever imagined. God is so faithful to hear our prayers. Through the background information we received on Reed's birthmom, we know that God had a hand in her life and gave her each of the things we prayed for.
Now, we want you all to join with us. If you are committed to "Praying Reed Home," we'd love for you to comment and let us know. We want to be able to show Reed how many people loved him and prayed for him before we had ever even met him.
Pray that God will grant us a speedy court process, that He will orchestrate our travel plans, that He will watch over Reed while we are not with him, and that He would prepare Reed's heart to accept God's amazing salvation.
