Little, precious Tommy has been one of my heart's beat these last weeks. He needs a family to move to redeem him NOW. He is out of time. He was uniquely and wonderfully made by our precious Father....he needs a family to lay down their lives for him as Christ has laid down His life for us.
As believers, we always say that prayer is THE MOST IMPORTANT tool and blessing that we have. With prayer, and through Christ's blood, we approach the throne of Heaven. We approach the God of Providence. We approach the one who made Tommy and loves him more than any of us could ever imagine. He knows the plans He has for Tommy.
We know from His Word that He is able to do more than we could ever ask or imagine:
Eph 3:20-21 "Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, O to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen."
He also tells us in His Word that we need to ask - and trust Him to answer in His perfect plan, according to His perfect will.
So, I am asking for people to commit to pray Tommy home. To choose a day specifically that they will raise Tommy up to our precious Father and ask for:
1) God's protective Hand to be resting on Tommy.
2) That God would call a family to go save him, quickly.
3) That God would speed the paperwork along and protect it.
4) That God would abundantly provide for the finances and support necessary.
5) That God would be glorified in all!
I know that there are some of us that Tommy is so burned on our hearts, that he is continually being raised to the Father. But there are also others that God has laid another child (or more!) on your hearts as well.....so I am just asking for a day of prayer for him.
Please sign up in the comments below by stating the date you are taking...to make it easier, please go in order. (I.e. If the last comment says, "July 1st", please take July 2nd.) I am hoping to get the next three weeks filled to start with.
