Dear Lord. We pray today for the Honourable Nadine Wilson. Thank you for her diligence in legislative work as well as her commitment to improve herself and add value to those she serves. We pray that you bless her with meaningful opportunities to make significant and positive changes in the lives of the Saskatchewan people. May she have the wisdom and professional capacity to know how to leverage and influence government policy to benefit the most people while minimizing the unintended consequences of legislation. Also, we ask that you give her a wonderful summer that is both restful, exciting, and memorable. Amen.
