Heavenly Father, today we cover MLA Laurie Throness in our prayer. We pray the whole armour of God – Ephesians 6:10-18 over Laurie and his family. Father may his light for you shine in his constituency, with his colleagues, and Laurie’s circle of influence continue to give him wisdom as he serves in Government. Laurie’s role for children and family development, and childcare is a very important position. Pour out your blessing upon him, in Jesus name we pray Amen. …..
