Dear Heavenly Father, we lift our prayers up to you for Scott Moe, our Premier of Saskatchewan. God, you created Scott to have an affinity for the land, to be a strong leader and an individual who has invested his time and talents to the larger community. We thank you for his heart that loves our province and our people. As the earth brings forth harvest, we pray that Scott will also harvest his talents and wisdom, especially as the earth groans with sadness over the Residential School children who were plucked from their families and divested of their culture. We pray that Scott will receive new insights and ideas for creating a safe and healthy place to live and work, and that the wealth that comes from our Province’s many natural resources, be used to build a strong and flourishing community. Lord, bind us all to one purpose – that through Scott’s mindfulness and desire to honour his role as leader – we build a province that focuses on loving our neighbour and working together for the common good of all. Bless his wife and children and all family relationships. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
