My Prayer Today – Day 7

Every Day for Thirty-One Days
Prayers for the Broken

My Prayer Today

My prayer today
is that the fatherless
in this nation
and every nation
would be encountered
by Abba’s heart
He is a good Father
and He desires these little ones
to be His
wholeheartedly His

Abba, would You break in on behalf of little ones today
who have great need of You
Would You encounter these childlike hearts with Your extravagant affection
and love for them

Abba, this is Your heart
And Your great desire
Bring beloved little ones
into Your heart, Your life today

Thank You Abba

The Fatherless – Day 3

Every Day for Thirty-One Days
Prayers for the Broken

The Fatherless

Just another day of entering into His heart, His desires, His longings,
For those who cannot even cry out for themselves

Abba, let our hearts be intertwined with Yours in
Your deep ache,
Your deep burden,
Your deep affection
For the fatherless

Abba, the little ones,
the broken ones,
the hurting ones,
they are so close to Your heart,
So close
So in need

Abba, please reveal Yourself
And Your heart
And Your affections
And Your longings to
the fatherless, the widow,
the afflicted, the lonely

Please answer their cries and bring to them life!
Thank You Abba

His Love

His love will win
on behalf of the poor,
The brokenhearted,
The beautiful fatherless child

His love will win
Eternally
His love will win

His love will win
on behalf of the oppressed,
The poor,
Those cast down

His love will win

Somehow, Someday…

I love you sweet Tali girl
Every time I get to spend time with you
It is precious to my heart

I can’t explain to you
Why things have been particularly difficult
For you
In your few years of life
And you couldn’t understand even if I could

Yet…
Our good, good Abba
Sees you, He knows you, He loves you
Intimately
Beyond understanding
More than I ever could

Somehow, someway
He will make sense of it all for you
And for me

As I think of you often
I will continually turn to our good, good Abba
And remind Him of you
Over and over again

And we will somehow, someday
See His goodness in the land of the living
I know we will

He will be all you need
Through your whole life
My sweet friend

Trust

I will trust You today
for one little girl
I will trust You today
with Tali’s life
I will trust You
with her heart,
her soul,
her body
Every part of who she is,
who You created her to be
For she is Yours
She is Yours
I trust that You will be all she needs
Today, tomorrow
Abba, I’ll choose to trust You again
For Your love is great
Your love is so, so strong

Hope

Somehow, some way, some day

Hope will triumph

In Your heart

In the center of who You are

Hope always wins in You

Give me hope

I must live in hope

I must have real hope

Living hope

Living understanding

Life deep, deep, deep on the inside

O how I need Your life to fill me

Your hope to penetrate all I am

For Tali’s sake

For Tali’s hope
