Father, we thank you for MLA Mello Altomare of the Transcona District. We pray that your hand would guide and bless his work. We pray that you would give him the strength support and encouragement he needs at this time. Fill his heart with your grace and peace and may his family be aware of your love and care for them. In Jesus’ mighty name we pray. Amen.
