Hon. Paul Merriman, Saskatoon Silverspring-Sutherland

Dear Father God, we lift before you Hon Paul Merriman. We thank you for those you have placed in servant leadership over us. In scripture you tell us in 1 Timothy 2:1-2 “First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for all people, for kings and all who are in high positions, that we may lead a peaceful and quiet life, godly and dignified in every way.” Lord, we pray blessings over all our MLA’s. Lord bless Paul in all areas of his life. Lord bless his wife Leane and their children. Father, show your favour to the people of Saskatoon Silverspring-Sutherland. Be with them and with Paul as he administers his portfolio. In Jesus’ holy name. Amen.
