Prayer Needed

We didn't have court.. I can't go into details but please pray God's will be done..

I was sure by now
That You would have reached down
And wiped our tears away
Stepped in and saved the day
But once again, I say “Amen”, and it’s still raining

As the thunder rolls
I barely hear Your whisper through the rain
“I’m with you”
And as You mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise the God who gives
And takes away

I’ll praise You in this storm
And I will lift my hands
For You are who You are
No matter where I am
Every tear I’ve cried
You hold in Your hand
You never left my side
And though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm

I remember when
I stumbled in the wind
You heard my cry
You raised me up again
My strength is almost gone
How can I carry on
If I can’t find You

As the thunder rolls
I barely hear You whisper through the rain
“I’m with you”
And as Your mercy falls
I raise my hands and praise the God who gives
And takes away

I lift my eyes unto the hills
Where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord
The Maker of Heaven and Earth

I *love* this song!! It played at our church on the Sunday morning after we suddenly and unexpectedly lost our fabulous elder and we all stunned.
I'm praying!!

Hi Renee,

My husband and I are in Addis right now to pick up our baby girl. I just wanted to let you know that we saw Baby John today at Sele Enat. He is absolutely precious. He has such a pleasant disposition, and is full of smiles. We gave him hugs and kisses, and told him that his Mommy would be here as soon as she could.

Your definitely in our prayers!!

You are in my prayers. The struggle to get baby John here will build a special bond between you.... A bond that is created out of love. He feels your love and he will know you when you meet. I have known of him for a long while and have been praying for him and sending love his way. I am so sorry for the delays. I cannot imagine how it feels. He is a true miracle and he is strong.
