Father God, bless Andrea Horwath today. Strengthen her as she stands in the very important place as Opposition Leader. Protect her Lord Jesus, from negativity and frustration. Give her eyes to see the truth in every situation and the wisdom to act with righteousness and honesty as she brings accountability to our government. Help her not to be weighed down by the responsibility of her position but rather, Lord Jesus, fill her with Your love and peace and joy! We declare that the Joy of the Lord is her strength! Amen.
Born and raised in Hamilton, Andrea was elected to Hamilton City Council in 1997, then as the MPP for Hamilton-Centre in 2004. The 51-year-old Horwath likes to swim and work out in the gym. She’s a Hamilton Tiger-Cats fan, and is known in NDP circles as a wicked cheesecake maker. Her staff say she’s a hard worker, driven to accomplish things and a strong woman.
