Father God, our hearts lift together in prayer for Delta South MLA Ian Paton and his wife, Pam, as they labour together on their family farm and for Mr. Paton and all that he does in legislature. We ask for the truth represented in 2 Thessalonians 3:16 (NASB) be upon him and his family during these challenging times: “Now may the Lord of peace Himself continually grant you peace in every circumstance. The Lord be with you all!” May he receive your mercy, grace, peace, wisdom and discernment for all decisions he makes in his work. Please keep this family safe and healthy as they go about their daily business. In the holy name of Jesus, we pray. Amen.
