Father in Heaven, we thank you today for the men and women you choose to be our leaders. We ask that you would give them the wisdom, guidance, and understanding they need to face the tasks before them. Today, we think specifically of MPP Joel Harden. We ask that he would be filled with your peace as you direct him where he needs to go. Help him to be a unifier, as well as one who always stands up for what is right. We also pray that you would abundantly bless his family. We pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
