Lord we lift up Honourable David Marit to you in prayer. Psalms 128:2 says “When you eat the fruit of your labour, blessing and prosperity will be yours.” Lord, may Hon. Marit be blessed and prosper and enjoy the fruits of his labor. I pray for new and innovative ideas to come forth as Hon. Marit serves the Wood River constituents. Thank you for your favour over him and his family. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
