Heavenly Father, your Word is a lamp to our feet and a light to our path. We pray for your Spirit’s illumination on the path of MPP Ian Arthur as he serves the people of Kingston and the Islands and the province of Ontario. Show him all that is good, and true and give him wisdom to lead well. Keep, guide and protect him, his family and his staff through this difficult year. We pray in Jesus name. Amen.
