In the Psalms, Solomon prayed that the poor would be treated fairly, the mountains would yield prosperity for all and the hills be fruitful. Father, Minister Harrison is in a unique position to be used by you to fulfill some of this prayer in these days for the people of Saskatchewan. Father we pray that in Minister Harrison’s personal life that he would draw strength, confidence and courage from those around him, and from you, to be able to fulfill his responsibilities to this province in new, renewed and established ways. Through his leadership bring about opportunities for prosperity and fruitfulness in Saskatchewan that have a direct impact on the ability for people to find meaningful work and expressions of their lives. Father, as he pours himself into his work we ask that you would also reveal to him ways of remaining fully engaged with his family, friends and community. Amen.
