MLA: DANIELLE CHARTIER – SASKATOON RIVERSDALE

Holy Father, we bring MLA: Danielle Chartier before You today and ask that You will help her to be the voice of the elderly and children. We ask that she will stand up for those who aren’t able to. Father, Your heart goes out to the weak and poor so we pray that she will continue to also have a heart for the weak and poor. We pray that MLA Chartier will be able to balance work and home life well and find rest when she needs it. Lord cover her with Your hand of protection, and guide her in the way You desire for her to go! Amen.
