God, today we thank you for Hon. Jason Luan, and ask that you would bless him and guide him. May he have the confidence he needs to make the right steps forward, especailly as he serves many who go overlooked as Minister of Community and Social Services. Help him to continue to be filled with compassion and not to become bitter or hardhearted as he serves. We ask that you would bless his family with your peace and grace. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
