II Cor 1:3-7
3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. 5 For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. 6 If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer. 7 And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort.


  1. I prayed for God to softened the heart of the judge last night around 10:30. I've been thinking about you. Hang in there! Let us know as soon as you hear something!

  2. I prayed that their hearts were moved for all of the right reasons to open adoption for these children. And then I prayed the judge open up the adoption process even if it is for the wrong reasons! I think we will take any reason, right?!

  3. We have been praying for you all!!
