Babies living in a drug den.


I go visit some of the girls who live in a homeless shelter. The place is basically a drug den that charges per night. Most of the girls are prostitutes, many are addicts and most of the babies dads are "Johns". My heart breaks for these babies and their mothers. Please pray for their protection. Pray that they grow strong. Pray that their mums find some kind of hope. Pray that they get out of this place and find safety and security.

Thanks for putting up the names of these precious little babies, I'm going to print these out and put them where I'll see them so I can remember to pray for each one by name. Sometimes it's so easy to just pray once and then forget that these individual children need God's protection EVERY SINGLE DAY. I'm working on being more vigilant in my prayers for others and not such a lazy prayer. Know what I mean?

I think of you often Vashti, I wish I could do more to help...

Oh this is heartbreaking. The image of that baby dying in "Trainspotting" always comes to me.

Thanks for caring.
