Father, what a pleasure it is to know Greg walks with you; that he desires the things of you and to be faithful to you. Lord, we believe you have more for Greg, more than he could even imagine, more than has entered his thoughts. Father, you have prepared Greg for this time, a time for him to press into you and to know you deeper and deeper even then. Father, cause Greg’s heart to grow and yearn for the deeper things of you. May he not stop short of the great things you have for him. Bless him and his family. Amen.
