Thank you, Lord, for Liberal MLA Jon Gerrard and his service to the people of Manitoba and River Heights. Thank you for his work in Pediatrics at the Winnipeg Children’s Hospital and his teaching career at the University of Manitoba. I pray that he would be a good example in conduct to those who look to him for leadership. Please fill him with your wisdom and love. Bless and protect him and his family. In Jesus name. Amen.
