Hon. Richard Wilson, Maskwacis-Wetaskiwin

Father, we bring Mr. Wilson to you as he also serves as Minister of Indigenous Relations. Matthew 13:16, « But blessed are your eyes because they see, and your ears because you hear. » and Matthew 13:23, « The seed that fell on good soil represents those who truly hear and understand God’s word and produce a harvest of thirty, sixty, or even a hundred times as much had been planted! » We take these life-giving words from the Bible and decree/declare over Mr. Wilson as well as the Indigenous. We pray these beautiful blessings over them both, as well as the Province of Alberta. Bring in the Harvest Lord!!! Bring them in! We pray for Your protection, Your blessings and Your favour over Mr. Wilson, his wife Rose, four children and seven grandchildren. PRAISE GOD!!! In Jesus’ mighty name, AMEN!
