I thank you for Mrs. Leela Sharon Aheer. I thank you that you have carefully placed her in my prayers so
that I can encourage and provide her with my prayerful support. It’s
clear that Leela has been given many gifts such as creativity and a caring
spirit. I pray father that as Leela executes her duties as an MLA
representing those constituents in her region that she will use wise
discernment between right and wrong and that her vote on critical issues would
be directed by her moral and spiritual compass and convictions. I
pray that you would watch over her and her family, protect them and bless
them. Finally Lord, I pray that Leela be able to use her
creativity and her music to communicate and influence our community as I know
very well that the gift of music and the creative arts can have such a
measurable positive affect on us all. Amen
