God in Heaven, we pause to remember Danielle Chartier today. Help her in her role as Opposition critic for Health; Seniors; Women; and Early Learning and Child Care. These are important ministries within our province and they need a strong advocate to draw attention to problem areas. We pray that as she serves, that she would experience Your grace, presence and compassion in her life. Bless her today we ask in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
