Dear Lord, we ask today that You give the Honourable Jeremy Harrison wisdom and direction for the decisions that are before him. Help him to balance fiscal responsibility with the needs of the people that have no voice in politics. Help him to continually keep an optimistic attitude and to consistently choose the high road. Bless he and his family with wisdom and close relationships. Amen.
