Lord, praying for Adam to be encouraged to continue in the way he is going (with his family) on this journey you have set before him. Thank you that you have placed Adam in the ‘seat of power’ for a reason and please let him be aware of your Presence, leading and guiding him into all wisdom. I pray that his natural gifts of communication, relationship skills, and inherited interests for First Nations people will further your justice for all constituents in his area of influence. I pray for a new courage and pure motivation for him as he lobbies in areas that might not be popular politically. I ask that no corruption could touch him. Please bring him comfort when times are difficult as he turns to you in prayer. Thank you that you will give him the words to speak when he needs them.
