Orphan Sunday {One day. One voice. One purpose}

Last night I was restless. I tossed and turned and found myself awake a few times with children on my mind. The images of children hungry for security, justice, food, shelter and true love were racing through my mind. Today is Orphan Sunday, a day dedicated to the millions of orphans around the world who are in need of so much. What I found myself doing during my times of waking was praying. This morning I pray for mercy for the little one who is defenseless in a harsh world. I pray for the street children who feel they have no where else to turn. I pray for the mothers who must leave behind children in worlds where perhaps they will be scorned or where they simply cannot feed them. I pray for fatherless in this country and far beyond, the innocent little ones who wait…

This morning I also say a deep prayer of gratitude for those who work tirelessly on behalf of the orphan… You inspire and encourage me and help me to know that pressing on is so important as there is a long way to go in a broken world. The Christian Alliance for Orphans has been an incredible wealth of information and I invite you to visit their website to learn more about how to support the cause on this important day, Orphan Sunday.

Please join me today to defend the cause of the fatherless (Isaiah 1:17) with one voice, one hope , one purpose…
