Father, I thank You that You have placed MPP Gila Martow in government. I ask that You would give Gila the wisdom and courage to speak on behalf of those who cannot speak for themselves. I pray that Gila will not grow weary of doing what is right. Give her strength as she serves, and I ask Your blessing on her and her family. In Jesus’ name, amen.
