Thank you Jesus for Laura! May you bless her and keep her in your hands. We pray that Laura would be guided by you in all her decisions. We pray that she would know you love her and that she would put her trust in you, God. May your Will be done in and through Laura. Help her to choose love and goodness, and to know the path of righteousness. Give her the boldness and strength she needs to serve the people of Kitchener. Help her to make the right decisions with Citizenship/Immigration and Regulations/Private Bills as she has influence in these areas. In Jesus’ name, amen.
