Dear Lord. We pray today for the Honourable Jeremy Harrison. We ask you to translate his visions for the province into tangible actions and improvements. Help him to identify the best of what is already successful to protect and bring that into the future while simultaneously generating and improving on new initiatives. We also pray that you give he and his family a wonderful summer filled with sunshine and barbecues. Amen.
