    • 1. Adoption Prayer Service<br />By Breanne Elie<br />
    • 2. We begin with the sign of our faith:<br />In the name of the Father, and the Son, and of the Holy Spirit<br />
    • 3. Opening Prayer<br />Loving heavenly Father,<br />we come to you today asking for your blessing as we are gathered here together. God you have initiated adoption. You love us unconditionally and give to us a love for you. You have bonded with us and you give us the gift of loving and bonding with you. We ask that this same miraculous love flow between adoptive parents and their children. Give mothers and fathers an unexplainable bond. And give the children, many of them wounded by deep rejection, a supernatural capacity to receive love. Bond them close. Create family ties where those ties seem impossible. God, for those families seeking now to adopt, give them courage to persevere. For those governments that make adoption difficult, break through and ease the process. With millions of orphans in the world, Lord, release a wave of new adoptions. Create and expand many families with the capacity to give and receive love. We ask this in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen<br />
    • 4. Scriptural Passage<br />A reading from the book of James: Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. (James 1:27) The Word of the Lord <br />Response: Thanks be to God<br />
    • 5. A reading from the Holy Gospel according to Mark: Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me does not welcome me but the one who sent me. (Mark 9:37) The Word of the Lord<br />Response: Thanks be to God<br />
    • 6. General Intercessions<br /> We pray for all the children waiting to be adopted by a loving, compassionate and caring family We pray to the Lord<br />Response: Lord, hear our prayer<br />We pray for God to provide all the couples wanting to adopt a child the strength, courage and patience needed We pray to the Lord<br />Response: Lord, hear our prayer<br />
    • 7. We pray for the kids adopted to find peace and love within their new family<br /> The Word of the Lord<br />Response: Lord, hear our prayer<br />
    • 8. Song- When Love Takes You In <br />By Steven Curtis Chapman<br />
    • 9. I know you’ve heard the storiesBut they all sound too good to be trueYou’ve heard about a place called homeBut there doesn’t seem to be one for youSo one more night you cry yourself to sleepAnd drift off to a distant dream<br />
    • 10. Where love takes you in and everything changesA miracle starts with the beat of a heartWhen love takes you home and says you belong hereThe loneliness ends and a new life beginsWhen love takes you in<br />
    • 11. And somewhere while you’re sleeping Someone else is dreaming tooCounting down the days untilThey hold you close and say I love youAnd like the rain that falls into the seaIn a moment what has been is lost in what will be<br />
    • 12. <ul><li>When love takes you in everything changesA miracle starts with the beat of a heartAnd this love will never let you goThere is nothing that could ever cause this love to lose its hold</li></li></ul><li>` When love takes you in<br /> everything changesA miracle starts with the beat of a heartWhen love takes you home and says you belong hereThe loneliness ends and a new life beginsWhen love takes you in<br /> it takes you in for goodWhen love takes you in<br />
    • 13. Closing Prayer<br />Loving Heavenly Father, <br />We wish peace for every single one of your children<br />And to be able to see Your features In every one of them children.<br />May we learn that there are many paths But all lead to You.<br />Help us to know that you have created us For family, <br />togetherness, For peace, for gentleness, For compassion, for caring, <br />for sharing. <br />May we know that You want us To care for one another as those <br />who know That they are sisters and brothers, members of the same <br />family, Your family, The human family. <br />Help us so that we may be able to live in peace and harmony, <br />Wiping away the tears from the eyes of those Who are less fortunate <br />than ourselves. <br />And may we know war no more, As we strive to be What You want us to be: Your children. Amen. <br />
