Lord, I ask that You be with Malaya Marcelino. I pray that You would impress upon her the desire to serve the people of her riding in Notre Dame with compassion and to the fullest of her abilities. I pray, Lord, that she would have wisdom from You to know what to pick up and what to lay down. Please show her what to fight for and give her the courage to stay against the crowd when You ask her to stand, not for the social or political norm. I pray that she would serve with dignity and honesty. That You would be glorified through her. Amen……..
