Her name is A. Okay that is not her real name, but to be safe, that is what we are calling her. She is 4 years old and she has Down Syndrome. And...she is beautiful!
Our prayer for A from Psalm 139:
You have knit A together in her birth mother's womb and she is fearfully and wonderfully made! You know when she sits down and when she rises up. You know every word that she has spoken, and even if she hasn't ever spoken, You know her thoughts. Your Word says she cannot flee from Your Spirit or Your presence--even if she is "on the far side of the sea!" All of her days were ordained and were written in Your book--(even though this is a little hard to understand.) Your thoughts toward A are so numerous that if we tried to count them they would outnumber the grains of sand! You have hemmed A in--behind and before--and Your hand is upon her.
Father, today help A to find favor in the eyes of the nannies that are caring for her. Prompt the nannies to pick her up, rock her, sing to her, read to her, kiss her and love her. Even though we cannot be there right now, surround her with your Spirit. Help her to know that she is treasured and loved.
And Father, please provide so that we can quickly have the privelege to be Your hands and feet to love her.
In Jesus' Name,
