Lord, we praise you that indeed, like Yamikani said, you are always good. Thank you for the life you have given Yamikani. We thank you for his love for you and your Word. Thank you for providing him free education through Agape House. We ask that it would bless him and encourage him as he goes about his life. Please bring him peace, comfort, and provide for all of his needs that have remained unmet thus far.
