MLA Brian Jean, Fort McMurray-Conklin

Lord of all wisdom, fill
Brian with the wisdom “that comes from above” (James 3:17-18). May it be both
practical and spiritual, making him quick on his feet, light in his heart, abounding
with joy and kindness. Give him insight into the many complex issues he must navigate,
patience with the many personalities he must deal with, and clarity for every
decision he must make. May he sense your presence and favour in all he does.  In Christ’s name we
pray, Amen.
