Lord we thank you that in Psalm 23 you are called “my Shepherd”. We thank you for all of our MLA’s. We thank you for the work you have called Meara to. We pray that you would meet all of her needs and bless her and her family. Lord we ask that you help her to face any challenges that may come her way. We pray that her soul would find rest in you, beside your still waters. Lord bless Meara. Lord may you always cover and protect our nation and our province. In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
