Pray and Encourage
One thing we can never have enough of is prayer. At AGCI we depend on the prayers of our supporters. One way this happens is through our email prayer group.
Would you like to join other believers who are praying on behalf of the orphan? You will receive monthly prayer lists, notification of special prayer needs and other opportunities as they arise. We will list our requests specifically on the emails. We include answers to prayers, too!
The pain, loss and heartache that each orphan experiences is unimaginable—they have lost not only their family, but in many cases, their hope as well. These children suffer from grief that no child should have to bear.
Yet we have hope for them. We know that all of these children have a loving heavenly father who defends the cause of the fatherless and promises that they will receive justice (Deut. 10:18). He knows each of these precious children and loves them deeply.
“But you, God, see the trouble of the afflicted; you consider their grief and take it in hand. The victims commit themselves to you; you are the helper of the fatherless.” – Psalm 10:14
God calls us to share his heart for the orphan—“Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world” – James 1:27
A great place to begin answering God’s call to care for the orphan is through prayer. We pray because we believe in his power and his compassion for the orphan. It is only through him that we can make a difference in the lives of these children.
“This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us. And if we know that he hears us—whatever we ask—we know that we have what we asked of him.” – 1 John 5:14-15
