Praying For our Adoption

The support through this whole international adoption process has been overwhelming.  It has come in multiple forms, but one that has especially struck me has been the prayer support.  The amount of people letting us know they are praying, and even more specifically how they are praying has been AWESOME!  Even more awesome has been the way we've seen God miraculously work in the prayer.  Two ways:
  1. Miraculously guiding prayers:  We have talked with those who have told us ways they've been led to pray that are simply spot on with where we are at or what we've heard is going on with our little guy.
  2. Miraculously answering prayers:  We have prayed and asked others to pray in specific ways only to see God answer those prayers specifically.
 We now approach pivotal moments in the international adoption process.  Next week is the first of two trips.  Starting tomorrow, I'll be posting some specific ways we would value prayer as we head into this trip.  Would you be willing to join with us in seeking God?
