Father, our hearts are filled today with prayer for Judith Monteith-Farrel. Northern Ontario presents unique challenges that are not easy to navigate. We pray for Judith, that you would bless her in her private life, that you would use her to solve difficult problems that have existed in the north for a long time. Thank you for her compassion for the needs of her constituents. Fill her mind with wholesome ideas. Give her your wise counsel and clear understanding. Bless her with good health in every aspect of her being. Be mindful, oh Lord, of needs she may have that no one knows, but you. (Psalm 121:8)
