MLA David Forbes, Saskatoon Centre

Father, you know David Forbes. You know him well, his comings and his going, the passions of his heart and the dreams he dreams. Lord, we pray that you would lead him into all that you would have for him. Father, call him. Call him by name and may he hear. Time is so short and the years go by so quickly. Let him hear the whisper of your voice. May he hear the Spirit call. Bless him and his family, Amen……
