Tags: Son Children The Search For My Children Within My Heart

I am so excited to share that I am in contact with my son and the parent that adopted him. everything is cool between his mom and I even though Robert and I have been out of the picture for many years. She was fine with Robert and I getting in contact with her again and be in contact with our son because we always got along with each other before.

I talked to my son for the first time on Wednesday. He was able to meet his Dad and Grandfather that is terminally ill over the phone. I talk to his mom about possibly coming out to see his Grandfather before he passes and they are considering it. Than I talked to him on Thursday too. I do not remember Thursdays phone call to much though. But I am grateful to be able to contact with them now.

I think I sent photographs of the family on Thursday because they sent Robert and I some of my son earlier that day. And when we get to Alpena on Sunday I will take more photographs of the family during the time we are there and send out more to my son on Facebook when I return home from Alpena Because they think it's more important for my son to get to know the family through photographs right now.

They also wanted me to give there number to my Biological Mother since she seemed interested in meeting my son and sending letters to my son. I was in shock when I heard this but I was happy to know that my mother did this so she can be in contact with her Grandson now too. So I told my mother not to call them until Monday late afternoon because they went out of town for the weekend and my son  returns home and takes a shower after school.

14 Amazing Prayers that Will Transform your Children's Destiny
Category: Member Blogs
Tags: Ephesians prayer pray children destiny transform

I am writing a book of prayers for our children and grandchildren. I wanted to share prayers I wrote striaght from the Word of God! These are amazing prayers because it is the Word and will of our heavenly Father!


The awesome thing about God's Word is you can pray the same Scriptures for your self, for friends, family members or whomever God places on your heart to pray for. Scripture comes alive when we make it personal and can see ourselves in that particular Word. The other great thing about prayer these prayers is you can put the person's name right in the Word of God and pray specifically for that individual.


May your faith soar as you daily pray, declare and decree these Scriptures over those you love and are called to interede for.


Ephesians – Chapter 1 Prayer


Father, in the name of Jesus, I pray for my children and grandchildren constantly, asking You, the glorious Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, to give my children and grandchildren spiritual wisdom and understanding, so that they might grow in their knowledge of You, Lord God. I pray that my children and grandchildren’s hearts will be flooded with light so that they can understand the wonderful future You have promised to those You called. Lord, I want my children and grandchildren to realize what a rich and glorious inheritance You have given to Your people. Father God, I pray that my children and grandchildren will begin to understand the incredible greatness of your power for us who believe You. This is the same mighty power that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at your right hand in the heavenly realm in the name of Jesus. (Based on Ephesians 1:16-20, NLT).


Ephesians – Chapter 3 Prayer


Father God, in the name of Jesus, I pray that from Your glorious, unlimited resources you will give my children and grandchildren mighty inner strength through Your Holy Spirit. And I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in my children and grandchildren’s hearts as they trust in You. Father, my children and grandchildren’s roots go down deep into the soil of God’s marvelous love. And they have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep Your love really is. May my children and grandchildren experience the love of Christ, though it is so great they will never fully understand it. Then they will be filled with the full new of life and power that comes from God in Jesus’ name. (Based on Ephesians 3:16-19).


Ephesians – Chapter 4 Prayer


Father, in the name of Jesus, I pray my children and grandchildren lead a life worthy of their calling, for they have been called by You, Lord God. Lord, teach them to be humble and gentle. Help them be patient with each other, making allowance for each other’s faults because of Your love. Father, help my children and grandchildren always keep themselves united in the Holy Spirit, and bind themselves together with peace. Help them to always remember we are all one body, have the same Spirit, and have all been called to the same glorious future. (Based on Ephesians 4:1-4, NLT). 


Father, help and empower my children and grandchildren to put away all falsehood and “tell their neighbor the truth” because we belong to each other. Lord, I pray my children and grandchildren don’t sin by letting anger gain control over them. I pray they don’t let the sun go down while they are still angry, for anger gives a mighty foothold to the Devil. (Based on Ephesians 4:25-27, NLT). 


Father, if any of my children or grandchildren are a thief, I pray they stop stealing, and begin using their hands for honest work, and then give generously to others in need. I pray my children and grandchildren don’t use foul or abusive language, but instead, let everything they say be good and helpful, so that their words will be an encouragement to those who hear them, in the name of Jesus. (Based on Ephesians 4:28-29, NLT). 


Father God, I pray my children and grandchildren don’t bring sorrow to the Holy Spirit by the way they live. Lord, enable and empower my children and grandchildren to get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of malicious behavior. Instead, cause them to be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven them in the name of Jesus. (Based on Ephesians 4:30-32, NLT).


Ephesians Chapter 5 Prayers


Father, I pray my children follow Your example in everything they do, because they are Your dear children. Help and empower them, by Your Spirit, to live a life filled with love for others, following the example of Christ, who loved them and gave himself as a sacrifice to take away their sins. 


Father, in the name of Jesus, let there be no sexual immorality, impurity, or greed among my children and grandchildren. Such sins have no place among Your people. May obscene stories, foolish talk, and coarse jokes be far from them for these are not for my children and grandchildren. Instead, Father God, let there be thankfulness to You. 


I ask, Lord, that You give my children understanding that no immoral, impure, or greedy person will inherit the Kingdom of Christ and of God. Your Word says that a greedy person is really an idolater who worships the things of the world. Father, don’t let my children worship anything or anyone but You. 


 Father, I pray that my children will not be fooled by those who try to excuse these sins, for Your terrible anger comes upon all those who disobey You. Please keep them from participating in the things these people do in Jesus’ name. Help them seek to find out what is pleasing to the Lord. I pray my children and grandchildren take no part in the worthless deeds of evil and darkness but will expose them. (Prayer is Based on Ephesians 5:1-11). 





I pray my children are careful how they live, not as fools but as those who are wise. Father, I pray my children make the most of every opportunity for doing good in these evil days. Lord, help my children not to act thoughtlessly, but try to understand what You want them to do. Let my children not be drunk with wine, because that will ruin their lives. Instead, Lord God, let the Holy Spirit fill and control them. Then they will sing Psalms and hymns and spiritual songs among themselves, making music to Your Lord, in their hearts. And they will always give thanks for everything to You, Father God, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ. (Prayer is Based on Ephesians 5:20, NLT).


Ephesians – Chapter 6 Prayers


Father, in the name of Jesus, help my children honor their parents at all times so that they will receive the promise You declared they would receive: a long life, full of blessing (Based on Ephesians 6:1-3). Father, help my children and grandchildren be strong with the Lord’s mighty power. Enable and empower them to put on and keep on all of God’s armor so that they will be able to stand firm against all strategies and tricks of the Devil. Give them divine understanding and revelation we are not fighting against people made of flesh and blood, but against the evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against those mighty powers of darkness who rule this world, and against wicked spirits in the heavenly realms (Based on Ephesians 6:10-12, NLT).     


Father God, teach my children how to use every piece of God’s armor to resist the enemy in the time of evil, so that after the battle they will still be standing firm. Empower my children and grandchildren to stand their ground, putting on the sturdy belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News, so that my children and grandchildren will be fully prepared in the name of Jesus (Based on Ephesians 6:13-15, NLT). 


In every battle my children engage in, I pray that they have faith as their shield to stop the fiery arrows aimed at them by Satan. May they put on salvation as their helmet, and take the sword of the spirit, which is the word of God in Jesus’ name. Lord, empower and enable my children and grandchildren to pray at all times and on every occasion in the power of the Holy Spirit, and stay alert and be persistent in their prayers for all Christians everywhere in Jesus’ name. Amen. (Based on Ephesians 6:16-18, NLT)


Within My Heart ~ The Search For My Children…

Tags: within my heart children twins twin daughters daughters adoption son family grandparents my children

After searching for my children for years I finally found the right people to help me find my children that have been adopted. I was suppose to have an open adoption but I moved to Michigan; I was not well and lost all my contact information for my children. It is disappointing that I missed them while they have grown up so far… Well I have some years left before they become adults to watch them grow up if I can. I miss my children so much that I cannot wait to have the adoptive parents approval to be in contact with them. I am finally getting somewhere with the company I am using to help me find my children. I really miss my children.


My children have been found I am just waiting for a response from the Phone Call and Letter that have been sent out to the adoptive parents. All I want for now is to write letters to each other and share photographs. I do not want to miss anymore Birthdays either. I will eventually work my way toward phone calls and being in contact with their Grandparents that miss them so much.


I called Tuesday and yesterday  to check if there was any response yet and there is not so far. Than there was a few phone calls back from the lady I am working with and she asked me if I would like to start writing a letter to my children so that when and if they respond and say yes to the letters they are ready to be sent out lol. So they will have both their dad’s and My Family Medical History and letters ready to be sent to them right away. I am ending up calling the lady everyday until we get an answer lol. I cannot believe we have made it this far after having no luck on this for many years before now.


As for my First daughter; she turned 20 in May and I have not heard from here since last year. I know I need to write her a letter also; so that we can eventually meet like she would like too and I would like too. I have just been going through some hard times and have not thought about it for a while until now. So when I am done writing to my other children I will write back to her too.
