Father I bring before you Hon. Sheila Malcolmson. I humbly ask that you release the finances needed for the strategies that are being set forth in the area of Social Development and Poverty Reduction by her team! Be close to her as she travels and works each day and strengthen her physically as she goes about her day. Strengthen her vision and heart for this area of government. Thank you for your protection over her and her loved ones. In Jesus name, Amen.
