Dear Lord. We pray today for Hugh Nerlien. Give him grace and peace in this new year as he continues to dive head-long into his role in government. We ask that you also help him to navigate the tricky aspects of public life where politics can sometimes blur the lines of ethics, values and convictions. Amen.
