It is with humble hearts that we raise Ben Stewart, MLA for Kelowna-West before You, Lord in prayer. 1 Chronicles 16:11 (NKJV) calls us to “seek the Lord and His strength; Seek His face evermore!” May Mr. Stewart reach out to You for wisdom, discernment, and best practices for the roles he fulfills in legislature. May Your Holy Spirit presence be with Mr. Stewart and his family as they go about their daily routines. In the name of Jesus our Lord, Amen……..
