David Zimmer - MPP for Willowdale

Today we pray for the Provincial Member of Parliament David Zimmer. Father in heaven, we pray for wisdom and strength for David. We pray Lord that our leader would be a man of integrity, upright and honest, and have a godly influence to serve and meet the needs of the people in his riding as he serves Ontario. In all his busyness of meetings, committees and serving his constituents I pray Lord that he would hear Your voice. I pray Lord that he would depend on You and that he would always acknowledge You in his decisions. Direct his path Lord. Lord, we pray for his staff and team today, keep them in Your loving care; give them wisdom and courage to do what is good and acceptable in the sight of You. Father, Your word says to pray for our leaders and we do. We thank them for their service and dedication. Bless David and give him great rest this summer. Thank you Lord for hearing our prayers, in Jesus name, Amen.
