Today is Orphan Sunday.
Orphan Sunday stands as a day specifically set apart to bring attention to God’s call for us to stand for the orphan. We are a people called to defend the fatherless, to care for the child who has no family, to visit orphans in their distress. Orphan Sunday is our opportunity as preadoptive families, adoptive families, and those who have hearts for children around the world to rouse the Church, our communities, and friends to God’s call to care for the orphan. It’s an opportunity for the Body to demonstrate what we are for instead of simply what we are against. What we are for is what God’s heart is for–and God’s heart is for the orphan both in an earthly sense as well as a spiritual sense.
Would you take a minute to pray for all the orphans that are suffering today? Would you ask God how he would have you help care for orphans? While you're at it, we would love to have you pray for an expedited answer to our prayers for our little one to come home.
