Lord God, we lift MLA: George Heyman up to You in pray. We pray for him that You will guide him as legislative leader in his community. Help him to remain the positive force in the many decisions needed for the people of Vancouver-Fairview. May You continue to give him Your confidence and ability in those areas of leadership where he requires it to best serve his constituents. Lord You have shown us many examples in the past where leaders have needed wisdom and You provided them with it. We ask that You would continue to do this for MLA Heyman. We ask all this in the mighty name of Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen.
