Lord, we ask You to mediate and bring a solution to the conflict regarding the new high school in Monrovia. We pray Godly wisdom and counsel for former U.S. District Judge Clemon as he assists the Madison County Commission in coming to agreement with the School Board and Superintendent Massey. May Your Peace guide them to what is truly best for the students.
