Father, we thank You for the passion that MLA: Eric Foster has to serve. Lord, we know that You were in his and his wife's decision to step into the political arena and ask that You would continually lead and guide him. We pray that You will give him quick understanding of the diverse issues and situations that come his way and provide solutions that will benefit all. When he rests we ask that You grant him supernatural rest and an increase in stamina. Keep him and his wife in health and may they prosper in all ways. Amen.
