Hon. Kevin Falcon - Minister of Health Services

Lord, in these days when there are increasing concerns over the health system and anxieties over health issues, we ask for Your hand of guidance upon Kevin as he is faced with decisions that will affect so many people. We pray for Your hand of grace as he carries out his responsibilities. May he have wisdom as he faces the challenges ahead.

We pray for Your hand of protection upon Kevin and his family. In Jesus Name.
