Father in heaven, you call us to pray for our leaders, so today we bring before you MLA Irfan Sabir. We thank you for him, his willingness to lead, and his commitment to help those who are in need. Would you encourage him today, Lord. Surround him with supportive people who will cheer him on to keep going when he wants to give up. May he feel your joy today. Thank you for his family as well, and we ask that you would fill them with peace today. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
