MLA Shannon Phillips, Lethbridge-West

Father, thank you for placing Shannon in her role as MLA for Opposition Finance Critic.  May the wisdom she gleaned from her ten years of experience in journalism and economic policy analysis give her great understanding in how decisions made will affect the people of Canada. Help her with solutions to the political problems she is facing by giving her the  wisdom and discernment required.  May she maintain a strong bond with her two sons and be able to balance family and political life.  We pray she will have your peace that surpasses all understanding and an abundance of joy. Amen.
