So as Pastor Ray looks down as Sister Gale, her face is one of sensitivity. She's not happy, but she's not sad. She says, Okay, Pastor, I'll let the other folks know what to do. But if anything goes wrong with this, it's on you because this is your choice and only God knows what on your heart and in your head. I hear everything that you're saying, but I don't believe this young man has changed, and I believe when it's all said and done, this young man is going to cost you, this church, and himself, a whole lot of pain. Sister Gale stands up to shake his hand and turns to walk out the door, Sister Gale says, Take Care Pastor Ray. As the pastor watches her walk away, a part of him starts to have doubts.
As he closes his eyes and folds his hand, he begins to call out to the Lord. Heavenly Father, I come before you because I know you already know what's going to happen. I don't. I have placed my trust in you without question, and I believe this young man will grow into who he is supposed to be. I trust you that you will touch and guide Kevin as he's out here and guide him away from these different women. And father, I ask that you grant meet any, anything that is needed for me to help him get to that point because I know that there's good in this young man. I have seen it from when he was a child. So, Lord, I throw myself down to you and say, please watch over him. Watch over this church and watch over me. I ask in Jesus' name, Amen.
