Jesus, we pray for MLA Bowinn Ma today. Thank you for her strategic and insightful way of leading in our province. We pray that in the vigors of the political arena, she would find rest, joy, peace, and deep contentment. We pray that you would cover her and her home with a shield of protection. Help her to know which battles to fight, and which battles to leave alone. Give her great wisdom. May she be a life giver in everything she puts her hand to. Amen!
