The documents from Odessa are in Alyona’s hands and will be sent to Kiev on the next train! This is a HUGE victory and we give all credit to God. NOTHING changed from Wednesday afternoon to today, except that people were praying. THANK YOU!
Now, please continue to pray for new friends, who have become dear to us as they are working to adopt two children. I will refrain from posting their names here, but the Lord knows exactly for whom you are praying, if you will join us in standing in the gap, fighting with the only weapon we have, the Word of God, the sword of the Spirit.
Arise, LORD! Lift up your hand, O God.
Do not forget the helpless.
Why does the wicked man revile God?
Why does he say to himself,
“He won’t call me to account”?
But you, O God, do see trouble and grief;
you consider it to take it in hand.
The victim commits himself to you;
you are the helper of the fatherless.
Break the arm of the wicked and evil man;
call him to account for his wickedness
that would not be found out.
The LORD is King for ever and ever;
the nations will perish from his land.
You hear, O LORD, the desire of the afflicted;
you encourage them, and you listen to their cry,
defending the fatherless and the oppressed,
in order that man, who is of the earth, may terrify no more.
