Hon. Jeff Yurek, Elgin—Middlesex—London

Father, today we pray for Hon. Jeff Yurek. Bless him as he carries out his many duties as an MPP. May he experience Your involvement in his life as he works to make life better for his constituents. Give him the wisdom to make difficult decisions and bless him with the courage it takes to seek Your approval more than the approval of people. Bless him with capable staff who will help manage the workload involved in public service. We pray that You will bring people into his life who will encourage him in his faith. (Galatians 1:10)
