MLA Wab Kinew, Fort Rouge

Lord, ask that you be with Wab Kinew today. I ask that you would give him the wisdom and vision he needs this day. I ask that you give him peace and understanding that can only come from you.  I ask that you would give him strength.  I pray, Lord, that you would lift him up and keep him and his family safe. I ask that you would bless him, that your face would shine upon him and that you would give him your peace.  Amen.
