Father, we give you thanks for Trent Wotherspoon and the work he does as MLA. We are grateful for his commitment to public service. May he have great determination to champion the needs of those he serves. May he use his voice to speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves and defend those in need of help. Lord, encourage and strengthen him in his efforts. In Jesus name, amen.
