Foster care

From The Clarion Ledger: Associate State Supreme Court Justice David Chandler is stepping down from the bench to take over Mississippi’s troubled foster care system. The foster care system is under a court order.

Hebrews 10:19-24 (NLT)
And so, dear brothers and sisters, we can boldly enter heaven’s Most Holy Place because of the blood of Jesus. By his death, Jesus opened a new and life-giving way through the curtain into the Most Holy Place. And since we have a great High Priest who rules over God’s house, let us go right into the presence of God with sincere hearts fully trusting him. For our guilty consciences have been sprinkled with Christ’s blood to make us clean, and our bodies have been washed with pure water.
Let us hold tightly without wavering to the hope we affirm, for God can be trusted to keep his promise. Let us think of ways to motivate one another to acts of love and good works.

Forgive us, Lord. Your Holy Scripture teaches us:

Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you.

Yet, the church in Mississippi has turned a blind eye to the needs of the foster children in their distress.
Lord, have mercy.
Christ, have mercy.
Lord, have mercy.
In hope and in love, we lift up the foster children of Mississippi. We bless Judge David Chandler. He has been given such a heavy burden. Help him to be steadfast in his commitment to this task. Bring alongside him those persons that will help him find the way forward. Show him the ways to motivate the Body of Christ to acts of love and good works. Grant Judge Chandler favor. In Jesus, our High Priest, we trust. Amen.
