Almighty God, Lord of heaven and earth, it is a privilege to bring Vancouver – Point Grey MLA and Premier, the Hon. David Eby to you in prayer, and we give you praise for the ingenuity, skills and experience he brings to lead our government. We ask for your Holy Spirit’s special anointing on Mr. Eby as he provides leadership to legislature and his constituency, both current and in the future. Please bring about fresh ideas and innovations according to your will, and provide the available funds and workers necessary to accomplish your will. May Mr. Eby see results as he places his trust in you as described in Proverbs 16:3 “Commit your works to the Lord, and your plans will be established.” Bless this man and his loved ones and keep them safe and healthy in the season to come. In Jesus’ holy name, we pray. Amen.
