A prayer for the siblings of the adopted —

By Becca Haines

Lord in Heaven, 

Each and every story of adoption is a reason to celebrate your mighty name, but we know this is just the beginning of the journey for these families. We lift up in prayer the siblings of the newly adopted and of those in foster care homes. Please comfort them in moments when they might feel overlooked. Empower them to love their new siblings in times when it might be difficult. Give them wisdom to see current struggles oftentimes derived from the past, and that there is hope for a better tomorrow with you by their side.


We thank you for allowing your love to shine the bright through our siblings – be they blood or not – for we are all brothers and sisters in Christ.


In His precious name we pray,


Amen.
