Lord we pray today for David Forbes, MLA representing Saskatoon Centre. We are thankful for his many years of service in the education system, in the political system and as a volunteer. May he always be a person of integrity. May he search for You Lord with all his heart and find You. May he follow Your instructions, be obedient to Your laws, and walk only in Your paths. We pray for good health and longevity. We ask for Your blessings to abound to him and his family. In Jesus name. Amen…….
