*** Prayer for my Wife and Daughter, Please ***
self | 03/22/02 | Jefferson Adams

Posted on 03/22/2002 9:38:12 AM PST by Jefferson Adams

I'd like to ask my fellow freepers to please be in prayer this weekend and especially on Monday morning at 8:00 Pacific time. My wife and daughter are having their official INS interview at that time, for their Green Card to stay in the United States. They came here from Canada in time for Christmas, 2000, and their paperwork was filed last summer. I know that God is in control, and that He wants this wonderful little family to stay together, but I very much covet your prayers. You can imagine what a tense thing this is for me. I have an incredibly sweet wife, and the cutest and sweetest 11 year old daughter you've ever seen.

Thanks for your prayers, folks. It means a lot to me. And they mean EVERYTHING to me.

You're a Canadian, eh? Prayers for your wife and daughter sent. If anyone is deserving it's the spouse and offspring of a good conservative.

Sorry that they have to face the bureaucracy. Hopefully they will get a good official who has their head on straight. It's harder these days on immigrants trying to follow the legal procedure than illegal aliens who are skirting the system.

Bumping it and praying. My wife and daughter are out of town three weeks in California, which is a foreign country too. I totally understand and will add you to my prayer list!

I know that God is in control, and that He wants this wonderful little family to stay together, but I very much covet your prayers.

I needed prayer for my son and wife who went through "Fetal Surgery" (in utero) in February for Spina Bifida.

Many people I usually debate and others I don't sent there prayers to God.
I have a healthy son with no symptoms of Spina Bifida so far.

Your prayers are being heard, friend.

God is in control. Things will go as He desires.

Ro 8:28 - We know that in everything God works for good with those who love him, who are called according to his purpose.

Thanks, Linda - I'll let you know when I get home on Monday.

Thanks much, to all of you. The Lord really does honor the prayers of His people, and I know that He put the three of us together for a purpose. This little family I have is so sweet, I am constantly amazed at His goodness.

Thank you all :)))))

Best of luck from a Canadian. May America give you the opportunity for all your family's dreams to come true.

I'm (not so) secretly envious.

Heavenly Father, you turn the heart of the king. All authority under heaven comes from You. We pray for this family that they might stay together. We pray according to Your love, mercy, according to Your desire to see families secure and intact; we pray according to Your justice for this family which has played by the rules and is seeking permission to stay in the US legally...We pray that You would go before them in this INS interview process, and that You would glorify Yourself by wiping away all opposition, or doubts, or technicalities which might prevent this mother and daughter from obtaining the permit to stay in this great country of our's, the nation which is under God, and blessed by You. As you give us Your Holy Spirit that we might have the mind of Christ in these matters, I declare that this request seems right in our spirits. Calm the hearts of this family as they surrender the situation to You, and may they see Your grace towards them at work in this situation. And may we all have reason to rejoice together next week. In your Son's name, Amen.
