We ask for the people that the Lord has given her charge over, will be changed by the Light of the Lord that she carries within her and the favor of the Lord will be evident. We ask that the Lord go before both Jeff and Christy each day to prepare the way for them so they can walk in accordance to His Will and His Purpose for their lives. Our burdens are light when we surrender and trust in the Lord completely to direct our path and all those who are placed in that path.

He would like his children lifted as well as they are going through emotional changes with school and growing up.
