Lord, we ask that You would undertake in the financial affairs of our Province and cause it to prosper. We echo the prayer of Jesus when he taught us to pray `Give us this day our daily bread`. We need your help in this difficult time and we look to you for provision and sustenance. For those who are and will experience financial difficulty through this time, we pray that You would be merciful to them.
We also pray for those responsible for directing the financial affairs of the Province. We pray that you would grant Premier Campbell, Minister Hansen and the Cabinet the courage to make difficult choices and the wisdom to do this with compassion and grace.
We pray for the poor, the widows, the homeless, those in need of health care and long term care. God be gracious to them in this time. Minister to them through the many among us who can be a blessing and source of generosity. Help us to find ways to minister to those who are less fortunate in ways that will make a difference in their lives.
Hear our prayer O Lord. Amen.
