MLA Jon Carson, Edmonton – Meadowlark

our God and Father I thank you for Jon and his commitment to serve in the
Alberta Legislature as an MLA.  I pray a covering
of peace and protection over him and his family and friends. As we all know,
serving in any public capacity comes with pressures and duties that are unique and
weighty.  I pray for divine wisdom for Jon. 
Political leaders are regularly called upon to make very
difficult decisions that affect many people. Divine wisdom is available for
those who ask God for it (James 1:5). Good decisions will seldom be made
without God’s wisdom (Psalm 111:10).  As I pray today and ask the
Lord for insight, I also feel compelled to encourage Jon that as he goes about
his duties he does so with confidence and equally
with compassion.  There are so many people we meet everyday that are
hurting and have such damaged lives. I pray that Jon in his role as a leader
and representative would be attentive to the needs of those he represents. Amen.
