Pray for this Sweet Family!

One of my favorite blogs that I read posted and asked for prayer. This sweet family has been through absolutely everything this year- their home burned down, the dad became critically ill this year after a missions trip, their daughter has a brain tumor, and now their sweet 8 yr-old Ch*na girl may never come home.

This is a summary of their situation from their blog post:

"It is a long story, which I cannot go into, but due to circumstances that were completely out of our control we have not been able to file our paperwork with immigration. (It is near done, but not quite.)
This morning, while grocery shopping I received a phone call from our agency. They had just received word that Ch*na was troubled by the length of time it has taken for our paperwork to get to Immigration, thus they are withdrawing their acceptance of us as Jubilee's parents. Meaning, we no longer have permission from Ch*na to adopt Jubilee.
I asked our agency what do we do now and they said, "We don't know. Ch*na has never done this before." Of course it hasn't.

We need a mountain moved, a miracle to happen and great favor to be issued. We are asking God to move on the Ch*nese Government and rescind that decision and allow us to proceed - we are about 2 days from ready to send it.
Hence, we turn to the Almighty-God of the Universe, who we refer to as the Miracle-working, Mountain-moving, Awe-inspiring, Gasp-giving God....He is the ONLY one able to move this mountain.
Would any of you be willing to pray and/or fast with us tomorrow, Thursday, August 26, 2009? Please pray for Jubilee's protection as well. There is no doubt that things are going on in the supernatural.
PS Please ask any prayer warrior or prayer chain to pray - please? And feel free to post it on your blog."

Oh how my heart is aching for this family. I totally know what it is like to be absolutely in love with a girl thousands of miles away- and to be trapped by government laws. But I also know that our God is powerful, mighty, and mountain-moving. So will you join me in prayer for this little girl?!

"The LORD your God is with you,

he is mighty to save.

He will take great delight in you,

he will quiet you with his love,

he will rejoice over you with singing."

Zepheniah 3:17
