Court Countdown - WEDNESDAY - MOWA

Today, our prayers will center on the Ethiopian governmental department in charge of international adoptions. MOWA reviews all of the dossiers submitted by prospective adoptive parents. If this office approves of a family's paperwork, they will write a letter of recommendation that supports the official adoption process. Without this letter of recommendation, court success is impossible.
We ask for prayer that MOWA would not find anything unacceptable in our paperwork. (This was the problem that came up with our first court try. We found out the day before court that MOWA wanted one of our agency's documents to be updated. Unfortunately, that was too late for us. That particular document has been redone and sent to the MOWA office. We believe that all of our paperwork is now okay.)

We also pray that MOWA would write the letter of recommendation in time for our scheduled court appointment. This office has many letters to write, and this work is often done on the very day it is needed. Occasionally, certain interruptions may cause letters to go unwritten. For example, if a MOWA office worker became sick or if there was some malfunction of office equipment, letters may not get written and court may be delayed again. Please pray that nothing would interfere with the writing of our letter of recommendation and that it would arrive in a timely manner before our scheduled court case.

There's no one quite like you among the gods, O Lord, and nothing compares with your works. All the nations you made are on their way, ready to give honor to you, O Lord, ready to put your beauty on display, parading your greatness, and the great things you do--God, you're the one, there's no one but you!

Psalm 86:8-10 (MSG)
