World Magazine article, Look After Orphans (Paul Golden, January 30, 2010), presents 20 proactive ways in which our church can answer the call to ‘look after orphans in their distress’ (James 1:27). We will look at each of these over the next several weeks.

1. Pray that you and our church would become adoption-friendly. Pray that potential couples will be sensitive to the Lord’s leading in their lives. Pray that the church as a whole steps up its involvement in assisting couples who adopt.

Frankly, every ministry is God’s ministry. Praying to Him is the most effective way to bring about growth, which is God’s blessing.  Prayer is happening all over! LBC hosted the LOCI Prayer Vigil meeting in January and Trinity World Outreach will be hosting the meeting in June. There is also a group of advocates in Indiana that also pray on a regular basis at Graceland Baptist Church in New Albany, IN. In May there is a nationwide prayer vigil specifically for the Foster Care system in the US. Please join us by simply praying the 3 prayers above in the large quotes. Thanks!
