How can I help?

Do you find yourself daily reading about good causes that need financial help, but you think "How can I help?"

This morning I read about a family who is trying to get money for an adoption from the Ukraine. Two girls with Down's Syndrome - Bethany and Hannah. This family needs about $10,000 in less than two weeks. Can you help them? Or, if you are too skeptical to give strangers money... or if (like me) you cannot give them any money - can you please, please pray for them?

Read the post here.

Father, You command your people to care for the orphans and those in need. And, we see a family desperately trying to live out this command in a very practical way. Lord, we believe it is Your Will that this family bring Hannah and Bethany home. But, we know that our thoughts are not Your thoughts, and our ways are not Your ways. If it be Your will to place these two beautiful babies in that home, then please provide the money in a miraculous way!
I ask this in the Name of Jesus Christ, Your Son, Amen.

Hat Tip to Mama Hen.

Thank you for posting about my family's adoption and especially for your prayer at the end.

Above all, we want God's will to be done and we want Him to be glorified.

Thank you for praying for us!
