Heavenly Father, we lift the Hon. Don McMorris to you, this day. Lord, Solomon wrote that with the increase in knowledge there is an increase in sorrow. We continue to pray for Don as he works alongside the indigenous communities who have experienced great loss. Guide him to build honoring relationships and outcomes as he serves these people groups. Bless him and his family today. Amen.
