Lord, we pray for Searle Turton, may he be true to his words of making his riding a better place, and work diligently to provide for the needs of all his constituents. May he see his service as something done for a positive influence, and as an outworking of his calling from God. Father, we ask for Your strength and a spirit of commitment to integrity and righteousness in the midst of temptations for Searle. May he stay humble as he serves our province. Surround him with godly counselors that are able to speak into his life and help keep him grounded in truth. Amen …….
