God in heaven, we thank you for Leading Influence and the important ministry it provides to elected officials across our great nation. Today we ask for times of refreshing for each person serving in the ministry – may they experience adventures with their families, joy in their marriages and a renewed sense of calling and purpose as they recharge over the summer. We thank you for the favour Leading Influence has experienced in the five provincial legislatures and in Ottawa where it currently serves and we ask for an increase, a double portion. We ask for chaplains and prayer networks in all 10 provinces, Ottawa and in the three territories. Prepare the hearts of those you are calling to serve. Father, we ask for your blessing and favour to be poured out on Tim Schindel. May Tim and Barb be replenished over these summer months and may Tim experience great blessing in his return to Ottawa in the fall. May he experience divine encounters, strategic meetings and an increase in connections with members from all parties. We ask all these things in the mighty and transformative power of Jesus our Lord, amen.
