Father in Heaven, thank you for Ryan’s willingness to work for the people of Saskatchewan. Give him the understanding of needs. Give him the wisdom to know how best to meet those needs as the Official Leader of the Opposition. Grant him favour as leader, insight and understanding for every and all issues facing government today. May those blessings be his in abundance. I ask these favours in Jesus Name. Amen.
