I came across the EMN as I have been aimlessly wandering around the web in need of prayers. Please add me and my children to your prayers-this family is in crisis and the outcome could be devistating for all of my children -bio and foster. We have suffered an incredable amount of grief and loss over the last few months. I do try to understand that suffering and sacrifice are the very moments you must rely on yor faith-but I feel like we have not even been able to come up for air. Please pray for this family to overcome our pain and return to our peaceful and loving place.
Dear Buttercup: Thanks for writing. The beautiful thing about the Body of Christ is that when we feel too weak to hold on … there are always others surrounding us (visible and invisible members of the family), holding us up before the throne of grace. God has not forgotten you. And we won’t either!
I’ve added your name to the monthly prayer list. Please write back again and let me know how you are doing. For now, please accept this prayer:
Heavenly Father, you know every bump in the road. You know how our feet ache, our hands shake, our minds churn, and our hearts break. Please be with my friend today, and give her a sign of your forever love. In the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen!
