Thank you Lord for the privilege to pray today for our MPP Lisa Thompson.Help her with her work, give her fresh vision and passion. Father we pray that as she serves the people of Ontario in the Huron Bruce area, give her wisdom and insight to help meet needs of her constituents. Father I pray that he hear and ears would be attentive to godly counsel. Bless her family and her staff as they work tirelessly. Father I pray that Lisa would know You and hear Your voice, feel Your presence and call upon You in time of need. Give her everything she needs in her position, strength, knowledge and wisdom from heaven. We pray in Jesus name. Amen.
