We pray today for the Hon. Rod Phillips, Minister of the Environment, Conversation and Parks. You have entrusted him to oversee the land, air, lakes, rivers and forests that are crucial to our lives and enjoyment. We ask that You would grant him great wisdom and tremendous insight to care for the air we breath, the water we drink and forests that we enjoy in so many ways. There are many factions that seek to pull him in many ways. Help him to discern the wise and best choices for our province. Bless his life today. Amen…..
