Hon. John Yap - Minister of State for Climate Action

Father God we thank You for another day that we can come before You to seek Your wisdom and counsel in prayer. We pray today for Mr. John Yap and his team, that where necessary You would give them new vision, strategy and plans to accomplish & successfully complete the goals and projects that have been planned for the benefit of the community and if any adjustments and amendments need to be made that You would direct them to those areas that need to be changed. We ask for a divine release of finances & resources to cover the costs involved.
We ask Your protection & blessing over our leaders as they continue to work on behalf of our province.
 We pray in the name of Jesus, Amen
