Father we are thankful for the leaders that you put over us. Today, we pray for the Honourable Derek Johnson. Guide him, we ask, as he serves his community and province. May he walk in love and humility, as you surround him with wise counsel and protection. Give him understanding favour we pray. Bless and guide his family today as well. We ask this in the name of Jesus, Amen.
