Prayer for the adoption process

God bless those whose hearts are set on a child they haven't met

“Do not be afraid, for I am with you; I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west… Bring my sons from afar and my daughters from the ends of the earth.”
– Isaiah 43:5-6

God bless families, who are longing to bring their child home through the process of adoption.

We know the desire to love a child comes from You.

But the journey to adopt can be long, hard and heartbreaking.

If adoption really is Your will for this family, please fill them with an unshakable sense of their calling.

Create a steadfast resolve in their hearts.

Give them the patience to work through all of the paperwork, meetings and uncertainty.

Pour Your perfect peace into their souls through the ups and downs, the excitement and disappointments …

Bless them with all the financial, emotional and spiritual support they need to work through this entire process.

Fuel them with hope that all their sacrifices will be worth it the moment they meet their precious child.

We trust that by Your divine power, across all barriers of time and space, You have already chosen the exact child, who will be the perfect addition to their growing family. 

Please create a straight and smooth path, so they can bring their son or daughter home as soon  as possible.

Guide them to the right adoption agency, bless all the paperwork to go through easily, and protect them from getting caught up in any legal loopholes.

Give them a deep sense of faith that You have everything under control, and their child is going to be okay.

In the meantime, surround their child with an army of angels. 

Provide them with loving caregivers, who are supportive and responsible.

Ensure that all of their basic needs for health and nutrition are met.

Give them a sense of Your miraculous presence with them, so they will feel deeply loved from the earliest moments of their lives, in spite of any challenges they go through.

Protect their innocence, faith and trust in the process of life.

Pour Your perfect peace that surpasses understanding into their souls.

Give them a deep sense of knowing that their forever family is on their way.

Create a breathtakingly beautiful family through this adoption process, God.

Transform their longing for each other into a deeper longing for You.

Help them to know Your steadfast love in a more tangible way than they could have ever imagined before going through the adoption process.

Increase their capacity to be conduits of Your love to others.

Bless them with infinite joy and closeness with their beloved new child and each other.

Guard, protect and guide every member of their family, always.

  1. Please, please– include the future birthfamily of each future adoptee in these prayers, as well! As we tell the adopting couples who come into our adoption program, becoming a “forever family” means embracing from the start the biological parents whose sacrifice will make possible your miracle, so start praying from the start for your future child’s first family, that they might find discernment, comfort and peace in their journeys, as well.

    Asking for prayer for my sister, Stacy and her husband Dave who are in the process of adopting a baby. Asking for prayer for this and that they will be able to adopt a baby soon. In the name of Jesus.
