Father, we bring before You Michelle Mungall, MLA for Nelson-Creston and Opposition Spokesperson for Social Development. We ask that You harness the strengths and passions that Michelle possesses and direct them down avenues that will have the greatest impact. We pray that You would influence her every decision and that she, in turn, would be an influence for others towards achieving Your goals. We thank You that You know all about Michelle and pray that she would desire to know You, too. We pray You would bless Michelle and her husband and strengthen the bonds of their marriage throughout this pressure-filled time in public service. We ask this in Jesus’ name.
