thursday thoughts: PRAYER REQUEST

By | 8:00 AM 11 comments

My heart is heavy as I write this out.

I have written on numerous occasions about my friends Josh and Tasha who are currently in Uganda completing the adoption of sweet little Shabila.

After 2 months spent in country they went for their exit interview at the embassy in Kampala, Uganda yesterday...with plans to get on the plane and come home THIS weekend. The supposed last step in the process. However, things did not go as planned...and the embassy has denied Shabila's visa. There are a lot of details involved in this case, of which, I don't feel is necessary (or prudent) to go into.

However, it is necessary and prudent to pray.
I am asking for you to pray.

The effective fervent prayers of a righteous man avails much. - James 5:16

Pray for a miracle.

They need a miracle.
Little Shabila needs a miracle.

We know our God is big.
And that he will sustain them.

Surely God is our help; He is the one who sustains me. - Psalm 54:4

I'll update as we get new information.

Like you yesterday, I was at a complete loss for words... All I could do was pray that this little voice in combination with thousands others would move this mountain. I still pray today for that miracle and know that God still loves them and all of us in spite of this scary and sad situation...Today I am numb,yet anxiously waiting to hear that this mountain is no longer there and that the Lord heard our cries and granted us all the desires of our hearts...

oh sadness. praying.

Praying "to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us"

I am very sad to learn about this. I know that God is working this out, though, and I pray He gives that family peace that is far beyond our understanding. Praying solutions are set forth swiftly so that they can bring home their daughter home together.
Mark 11:22-24
