Heavenly Father, thank you for hearing our prayers and thanksgiving. You have resurrection power and by your great name, Jesus, we pray for our provincial leaders. Thank you for the service which Member Janis Irwin provides for her constituents and for the concerns of many people throughout the province. Help her to think clearly as she sorts through priorities and listens to the many concerns presented to her. We ask you to bless her in many ways: guard her family; give her good health; make a path for her to move forward; download your purposes to her as she anticipates the future. We pray, amen.
