2. Promoting Health and Managing Dysfunction

Opening prayer for the Symposium,
by Dr. Winston Gooden, Dean of the School of Psychology:
“God we thank you for the call on our lives. We thank you for the many places to which we are sent. We thank you for the sensitivity of those who care for us on this journey that we take. And now tonight as we come to hear, to learn, to study, to be inspired, we pray that your Spirit will hover over us. That you would strengthen our speaker, that you would open our minds, that you would fill us with your rich wisdom so we might be prepared to do your work. We pray this in the name of Him who was sent by You to be our Savior. Amen.”
