Our Prayer is that God you will continue to bestow Bishop Eddie Long White with wisdom, revelation and understanding. That God you will continue to protect and keep him, his family and ministry from every schemes of the enemy. That The Almighty God you will bless the work of his hands and that God you will grant him and all his team peace. May you contend with them that are attacking him and let them never succeed and may instead every curse be turned to a blessing. God continue to fill them with humility and may the focus of spreading the Gospel never depart from their hearts. We bless their children, they will be the head and not the tail, above only and never beneath and that the love of God will be greater in their lives than what is in their parents lives in Jesus Faithful Name, Amen.
