A group of AGCI folks have joined together to fast for those of us with adoptions hanging in limbo. (Some of the people who we are praying for are me, Sharon, the 3rd AGCI family going through this delay, a gal named Robin, and many others who are adopting from Guatemala and their children are stuck in PGN). This is a prayer fast, and it starts tonight (Wed) at 8 pm PST and will go until the same time tomorrow. I can't tell you how much this has encouraged me, that people who I only know through bloggerville and Yahoo list serves have voluntarily set aside a day to fast for our adoption.
There is a specific reason to pray, because it is a minute possibility we might be able to squeeze through a loophole (maybe), but it will honestly take a miracle.
I've never fasted before, have you? I am glad to be doing SOMETHING, rather than continuing to sit here. But I have to be honest that I feel completely exhausted in my prayers. I cannot beg God anymore than I already have. I have no new way to phrase my feelings, to present them to God, no new insights into why or how or when. I do NOT feel far from God right now. What I feel is: tired.
I need some sort of [selah]. i don't know what it would look like, or if, in limbo, it is even possible to attain. but perhaps this fast will help.
