Father, we thank You for Your wisdom in appointing to a place of leadership in our province in these days Greg Kyllo, MLA for Shuswap and Parliamentary Secretary for the BC Jobs Plan. May he serve out Your purposes for him and may he be an instrument that causes doors to open and the light of Your wisdom to shine through. We pray that he would walk before You with integrity and a right heart. Bless him and his family with good health and opportunity for quality time together. We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
