Houseparents: Family for life

Day 14:  30 Days of Prayer for Hope

A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling. God sets the lonely in families, he leads out the prisoners with singing; but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land. (Psalms 68:5-6)

Hours after the children scuttle off to bed, houseparents gather for a late-night dinner and prayer meeting. Almost every night, as dinner winds down, the houseparents form a circle, and—holding hands—they intercede before God for each child. Together, their passion for every child in their care is palpable.

These special houseparents sign ten-year contracts so their Hope Unlimited children, abandoned so many times in their lives, will never feel deserted again. These parents bring stability, discipline, life lessons, and, most of all, love to kids who have never known the meaning of family.

Father, we pray for the houseparents today. Give them grace, peace, patience, and a constant awareness of your presence.

    Unquestionably consider that that you said. Your favourite reason seemed to
    be at the web the simplest thing to keep in mind of. I say to you, I certainly get irked
    even as folks think about issues that they plainly do not understand about.
    You controlled to hit the nail upon the top and defined out
    the entire thing without having side-effects , other people could take
    a signal. Will probably be again to get more.

    I do not even know how I finished up right here, but I thought this
    put up used to be good. I do not know who you’re but certainly
    you are going to a well-known blogger if
    you happen to are not already. Cheers!
