Dear Heavenly Father, In the book of Isaiah you promise that when we pass through deep waters you will be there with us. And Peter was able to walk to you on the water when he focused on you. Lord I pray that we would all keep our focus on you. I pray that you would give strength and wisdom to Greg. I pray you would bless Greg in all he does. I pray that you bless him and his community, and that you would bless the work of his hands. Lord abide with his family and friends. Lord bless all our MLAs. Father, hold us all in your tender care. We thank you Lord that Your banner over us is love. In Jesus’ precious name. Amen.
