Heavenly Father, we come to you today to pray for MLA Meara Conway. We are grateful for individuals who have answered the call to public service. We look to you that you would give her wisdom (James 1:5) as she works hard to walk through the complex needs of the people of our province. We ask a blessing on her family for supporting her through this work. We ask all these things in Jesus’ name, Amen.
Meara Conway was elected MLA for Regina Elphinstone-Centre in 2020. She is the opposition critic for Social Services, Housing, Human Rights, and Community-Based Organizations. She is a lawyer, community organizer, and musician with deep roots in Saskatchewan.
