Father we lift Mr. Wilson up to you in prayer. May your hand be upon all that he does and may you impart wisdom, knowledge, and courage. Decreeing Ephesians 3:17, 18 “And I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts, living within you as you trust in him. May your roots go down deep into the soil of God’s marvelous love.” Praying blessings and protection over Mr. Wilson, his wife Rose, four children and seven grandchildren.  In Jesus name. Amen.
