Father, we thank You for the dedication and commitment that MLA: Eric Foster models. We pray that he will be in perfect peace as he moves into new strategies and that Your blessings will follow him. As summer approaches we ask that there will be rest times with family and those that are close in authentic relationship. We pray also that his strength is renewed. In the name of Jesus, Amen.
