Father, we ask that a special ability to govern would rest upon the Honourable Naomi Yamamoto. We pray that problem-solving and innovative ideas would come naturally to MLA Yamamoto and that she could make inroads into long-term difficult situations. We pray You would use her as a vessel to gain great success in breaking through hindrances and blockages that You want to have removed. May she see Your hand in all that You do through her and may her heart be drawn to You and her eyes opened to see You. We ask this in Jesus’ name.
