Heavenly Father, we need your mercy and grace to both sustain and guide our Premier, the Honourable Jason Kenney. We recognize the great load of leadership which he has shouldered during the pandemic. We seek your power to strengthen him during a time of rest, and to renew a vision for the coming months. Lord, teach him more of your character that he may know you better. We are grateful for your help, Lord. Amen.
