My Lord and Keeper of my soul,
The One who created the earth and all that is in it,
The Sovereign King who places rulers and authorities in their position,
My Kind Ruler who moves the hearts of kings like water,
Hear the heart of an earthly father, and the many who join with me.
Your name has been glorified from the begining of this story. Your mercy has permeated every part. Every minute detail has Your gentle fingerprints all over it. You gave us a love for two children, and a hope for their futures. You have moved in the hearts of many of Your children to join together in one voice asking You for that which only You can do.
Your eyes "are on the righteous, and [Your] ears are open to their prayers;" (I Pet. 3:12)
"Now this is the confidence that we have in [You], that if we ask anything according to [Your] will, [You] hear us. And if we know that [You] hear us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of [You]." (I John 5:14-15)
God, move in the heart, mind, and spirit, of our judge in only the way that You can to grant us favor in his eyes. Make Your glory so shine through Jennifer, Katie, Christopher, and all those who are at her side, that our judge may clearly see You. Show Your power in what men say is "improbable". Let all those watching have their faith encouraged and deepened by the way You work.
Your ways are beyond our comprehension, and Your compassion for these orphans beyond compare. Let our judge be moved by You, and only You, to rule immediately in our favor. Men say this can't be done, but we don't place our trust in men no matter what position they hold. We trust in the name of the Lord, our God! There is none equal to You. There is no one who cares for the weak like You.
Your heart delights in the unity of Your children. Be delighted and blessed now as we ask You to do what only You can do. Be honored by our prayers and longing for Your glory. Make Your name famous around the world on this day. Let Your works be told of over and over and over in the decades to come.
We are Yours. Katie and Christopher are Yours. We yield with thankfulness to Your sovereign desires, and we will be glad in whatever You choose to do. It is not for our glory or selfish ambition that we present these requests to You. It is for Your renown and pleasure.
You are sufficient for us. Find joy and favor in Your people today.
We love You with all that is within us, and lift this all to You in the only name by which we are saved, Jesus.
"All things were created by Him. He created everthing in heaven and on earth. He created everything that can be seen and everything that can't be seen. He created kings, powers, rulers and authorities. Everything was created by Him and for Him. Before anything was created, He was already there. He holds everthing together." (Col. 1:16-17)
