Our Father in Heaven, nothing escapes your sovereign will. We thank you for the calling to serve the people that you have placed on the hearts of our leaders. Lord we ask Your blessings on MLA Colleen Young as she serves. We walk in uncertain times. Please give wise thoughts to Colleen as she looks after the people. We ask that your hand of care be upon her and her family and friends. May Your favour be on all the people of Saskatchewan; and also on the people who live in Lloydminster. Thank You Jesus, in your name we pray. Amen.
