Father in Heaven, you are the God who adopts souls into your family through faith. Thank you for your plan of adoption. Thank you for our forever standing within your household. Thank you for the example for us to reach out to help the fatherless, the motherless and the orphans. Guide us in your will in the name and authority of Jesus, according to your good and perfect will. Amen.

“So then you are no longer strangers and aliens, but you are fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Christ Jesus himself being the cornerstone, in whom the whole structure, being joined together, grows into la holy temple in the Lord. In him you also are being built together into a dwelling place for God by the Spirit.” (Eph 2:19-22 ESV)
