A Prayer for Hope, A Prayer for Love

Heavenly Father...

You know our hearts. You know our deepest thoughts, our desires, the blessings we hope for. You know the longings of the thousands of men and women in this world who long to become parents, but will only do so with your help and guidance.

Lord, be with them.

Comfort them.

Show them the path that you have for them.

Lead them to the child you have waiting for them.

Give them courage. Give them hope. Give them patience. Give them love.

As you taught us, the greatest of these is indeed love. For adoption is not the end of a parent's journey, it is only the beginning.

In Your Eternal Name,

Amen
