Garrick is a sweet and happy two and half year old little boy who was originally admitted to Show Hope’s special care center in Xinyang. He was recently transferred to Maria’s Big House of Hope to provide more intensive care for a blood disorder called thalassemia.
Garrick plays well with the other children in his room and the other kids love having a new little playmate. He recently started preschool at MBHOH and loves to learn. He is very open and curious about new people and has no hesitation in making new friends. He is very cuddly and loves to wrap his little arms around you when you pick him up. He also loves to smile, laugh and be tickled. He is a natural explorer and loves to watch everything going on around him.
Please pray for wisdom as the medical staff at MBHOH seeks the best treatment for his medical needs and that he would continue to grow and thrive under the care and love provided at MBHOH. Please also pray that Garrick would soon have the opportunity to be welcomed into the arms of a forever family of his own through adoption.
+ Lord, raise up workers for the harvest. We pray for The Glorious Unfolding Tour that kicks off this month (first date is 9/26 in Shreveport, LA). We ask that you would use this tool to bring many more to serve in the fields of the fatherless through the work of Show Hope. Grant us hearts that joyfully give of time, talents, and resources to follow your call to care for orphans.
+ Anoint those involved in orphan care. We pray for safety in travels and unity in spirit for Show Hope’s Sponsor China Trip (September 20-29). Shape the hearts of the team and staff to more fully reflect Yours as they work on behalf of the world’s waiting children.
+ Father, your hand is one of love and mercy. We pray that you would use the resources provided through the up–coming Empowered to Connect conference in Houston (September 13-14) to bring greater healing to children from hard places as well as deep encouragement and great hope to their families.
+ Great Physician, we thank you for the continued healing you have provided to Dr. Joyce Hill during her recent illness. Continue to provide strength, endurance, peace, wisdom, unity and hope to Joyce and her family as well as to Dr. Martin and the staff during this season of her recovery.
+ Lord over all, we pray for vulnerable children and families across the world as they are too often negatively impacted by governmental policies, cultural values, shortages of food and clean water, and scarce healthcare resources. Safeguard all against the forces that contribute to children becoming orphaned and give us grace to meet the needs of those who are currently counted among these numbers.
