Hon. Cathy Cox, River East

Lord, I lift up Hon. Cathy Cox to you as she serves in Kildonan/River-east and in the areas of sport culture and heritage and status for women. Lord I pray that you guide her with wisdom and strength. I pray Lord that her agenda would be Your agenda. I pray that any personal agenda of hers would be abandoned for Yours. I thank you, Lord, for her heart to want to serve and ask that you would continue to cultivate it. May your Will be done. Amen…….
