Father, in your Word it says “…The powers that be are ordained of God.” We thank you for the wisdom you give MLA Katrine Conroy in her role as Minister of Forests, Lands, Natural Resources Operation and Rural Development. This is a very important role because a vast amount of our province is forest. Please give her wisdom every day with her decisions. Bless her riding and her family, in Jesus name we pray, Amen.
