Wisdom in government is needed as large numbers of Islanders hope for a more independent future. Pray that God would give the leaders wisdom to oversee increasing autonomy from Denmark. Also pray that God would give them courage to make strong decisions in managing the shrinking fishing industry and the still-speculative oil industry both having great environmental and social repercussions.
