One way everyone can participate in the care of orphans and adoptive families is through prayer.
Here are some suggestions:
Sparrow Families – Pray for the adoptive children, those at home and those waiting to get home. Safety, health, adjustment. Pray for the parents to have wisdom to raise their child(ren) and to seek God’s glory throughout it all.
Orphans – Pray the gospel of Jesus Christ would reach these children, that they would be spiritually adopted by God, if not also physically adopted by a mom and a dad.
The Church – Pray for an awakening among believers to address the need of orphans. Pray for conviction and awareness of the many ways an individual can help. Pray for church leaders to prioritize the care for orphans and to preach the gospel through adoption.
Sparrow and Other Orphan Ministries – Pray for encouragement for those working on behalf on the orphan.
