MLA Ryan Meili, Saskatoon Meewasin

Heavenly Father, Ryan is a man of perspective. As a doctor he works with those who are in need physically and mentally. As the MLA he lives and serves in the place where many times the needs are great, both in family and otherwise. Those who are sometimes neglected and rejected. This perspective has provided Ryan a yearning and desire to see the underdogs and the less fortunate be included and participate in ways they would otherwise not be offered. Father, visit Ryan. Find him in his quiet times, find him in his thoughts. May he find his true purpose and calling, may he discover the passion of his heart, the one You placed in him when You created him. Clear his vision for the things You have created him for and may he chase this purpose fervently. Amen……
