Today is Orphan Sunday! Please join me in praying for children around the world who are in need. We call them the “fatherless” or the “orphan”…but this ALSO includes nearly a half million children who are in the United States foster care system. According to HHS, “On September 30, 2010, there were an estimated 408,425 children in foster care.”
To donate or get involved, please check out the Christian Alliance For Orphans website. They have a resource page of trusted agencies. Also, please pray for our nation’s Department of Health and Human Services.
Also, if you have an adoption story, or if your church did something special this morning for “Orphan Sunday,” please leave us a comment and tell us about it.
