Heavenly Father, we lift up MLA Meara Conway to you. Lord, she desires to see justice for those whose voices are often muted or misunderstood. Guide her in the way of your holy justice Lord as she contends for children and youth in social services, adults and families who are in need of housing. Lead her from your wisdom and discernment as Ms Conway works on human rights issues. We ask you to reveal to her the way that she needs to lead and advocate for the people of Saskatchewan and in the city of Regina. Thank you, Lord. Amen.
