Lord, we come to you tonight thankful for Manson. You have created him uniquely and intentionally. Thank you for his friendly and fun personality. Thank you for his dream of keeping peace within his country. We know you say in your word that those people are blessed. We pray that you would indeed use him to bring peace and reconciliation to your world in his community. We ask that you would meet his needs in all aspects. Thank you for Agape Scholars and the opportunities that the school has brought him. In the your name Jesus, Amen.
