Lord, today we thank you for MLA Marie Renaud and we ask that you would bless her abundantly. We thank you for her heart for those who are often looked down upon or looked over. Give her strength to us her voice for the voiceless. Encourage her and surround her with those who will support and give her wise counsel in all she does. Bless her and her family with your peace and presence today we pray. Amen.
