Dear Lord, thank You for MLA Kevin Phillips. We ask that You would continue to grant him compassion for the people that do not have a voice in society. Help him to see their needs and to spearhead initiatives for them. May he also receive renewed encouragement from his colleagues in the legislature this year as he works on our behalf. Bless he and his wife April and their family with health and prosperity. Thank You, Jesus. Amen.
