God, we thank you for the honour of praying for our elected leaders. Today we pray for Trent Wotherspoon. We are thankful for his heart to serve in his community and as an MLA. As he goes about his duties as a volunteer and in his official capacities, may he be attentive to the people he meets to identify the needs and issues on their minds and hearts. We also pray that as he serves he would be greatly encouraged, inspired, and affirmed by the people. And Lord, may he also have a sense of your great love and care for him. Amen.
