Lord, thank You for the life of the Honourable Greg Rickford. As he serves the riding of Kenora-Rainy River, may a spirit of courage rest upon him daily. In Matthew 14:27 Jesus spoke, “Take courage. I am here.” As Greg serves the province as Minister of Energy, Mines, Northern Development and Indigenous Affairs, we pray the promise of Jesus over his life…take courage, I am here. In every situation, may he know the experiential reality of scripture: Lord, You are with him. We pray blessing, protection and wisdom to be on Greg in every area of his life including his family, career and community interests. May he know the comfort of being prayed for today, in Jesus name, Amen…….
