Love one another as He loves us (John 13:34-35) Father, I thank you for Malaya and pray that her foundation is rooted and secured through Christ Jesus to your Word (2Pet 1:19-21). Help give Malaya a firm foundation in you and to rely on your Love and Care for those who you put in her path. Help her to see her natural gifts of compassion and empathy and empower her to be a voice calling us to not forget the Orphan or the Widow (Jam 1:27) Bless her and her family today, in Jesus Name, Amen
