Heavenly Father, we come to You in prayer for MLA: Hon. Pat Pimm. We ask that You will guide him as he presides over the very important portfolio of Minister of Agriculture. Give him the wisdom to plan his day well so that he will have the time not only for his legislative business but that he will also be able to look after the details of his constituency. Help him to always find time for his wife and family in the midst of his busy schedule. In Our Savior’s precious name we pray. Amen.
