Hon. Richard Wilson, Maskwacis-Wetaskiwin

Father we lift up to you today the Honourable Rick Wilson. We ask that you would give him continued favour in the work that he does, and help him to foster new relationships and connections that will be a blessing. We pray you would give him wisdom in the many difficult situations he finds himself in, and we pray that you would be his guiding light. We thank you Lord, for him, and we pray that you would be with him. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
