Heavenly Father, we ask that your wisdom which has guided kings and magistrates for millennia would be upon MPP Baber in these days of uncertainty. Give Roman clarity and direction, and help him to lean not on his own understanding, but to acknowledge you in all his ways. God, we ask that you would make Roman‘s pathways straight as he trusts you with each of his steps. Surround him with wise counsellors and advisors for the accomplishment of your plans and purposes in his life. Thank you for Roman’s tireless efforts in service of the people of York Centre and for all Ontarians. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.
