I -- Michele Glance Rooney -- earnestly thank You for the gifts and talents You have placed in Emily. I pray that
You would develop them in Emily and use them for Your glory. Make them apparent to me and to Emily and show me specifically
if there is any special nurturing, training, learning experience or opportunities I should provide for her. May Emily's gifts
and talents be developed in Your way and in Your time.
Your Word says, "Having then gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us, let us use them" (Romans
12:6). As Emily recognizes the talents and abilities You've given her, I pray that she will use them for Your glory.
I pray that You would reveal to her what her life work is to be and help her excel in it. Bless the work of Emily's
hands, and may she be able to earn a good living doing the word she loves and does best. Bless the work of Emily's parents.
Your Word says that, "A man's gift makes room for him, and brings him before great men" (Proverbs 18:16). May
whatever Emily does find favor with others and be well received and respected. But most of all, I pray the gifts and talents
You placed in her be released to find their fullest expression in glorifying You.
