Lord, it is a privilege today to bring MLA: Roger Parent to You in prayer. We thank You for his servant’s heart and will that is directed to being a voice for those that do not have a voice in our province. We pray that You will give him favor and influence with those he works with, those he serves and those he is in partnership with in common causes. May he and his wife Sheila not only find times to be together in unity but may You cause them as a couple to be implementers of change when traveling and working together. We speak these blessings in Jesus’ name. Amen.
