Dear Heavenly Father, we lift up Meara Conway, MLA for Regina Elphinstone Centre. When Meara was birthed into this world, the heavens rejoiced because of her destiny – to make positive, world-changing contributions to social justice through her career, present influence in the political arena, and the community she serves. Lord, grant Meara the ability to discern where there is faulty, improper thinking as it relates to issues under her authority, specifically regarding social services, human rights, and changes to community programming. Guide her as she uncovers injustices. Cloak her in your authority as we see a positive turnaround in the areas of righteous and morally correct thinking that will change the direction of this province. We pray you give her strength and good health to juggle all you have placed on her plate, and we pray for happy family moments, safety, security, and health for Meara, her partner, Nick, and their son Llewelyn. Thank you for answering our prayers. Amen
