MLA - Greg Lawrence - Moose Jaw Wakamow

Dear Lord. Thank you for Greg Lawrence. We pray today that you would meet him in his spiritual walk, as well as his professional challenges. May you breath into his world that amazing wisdom that comes from you. Bless he and his family with continued joy and health. Amen.




Born in Bienfait and raised in the Estevan area, Greg spent many years working in the oil industry and with SaskPower. He moved his family to Moose Jaw in 2003 where he began his employment with SaskTel as a customer service technician. He would later become vice president of union CEP Local 3 and sit as the grievance coordinator and as a Securtek bargaining representative.  Greg has also served as president of Southern Plains M├ętis Local 160.
Greg and his wife Marj fostered many children while raising three teenage boys. This involvement inspired Greg to make a difference by running in the 2011 provincial election.
Greg was first elected as the MLA for Moose Jaw Wakamow in November 2011. He was re-elected on April 4, 2016.
Greg is Chair of the Assembly's Standing Committee on Human Services and is a member of the House Services Committee and the Privileges Committee. He was recently appointed Saskatchewan’s Military Liaison. Having served as a Lieutenant in the Royal Canadian Air Force Reserves, instructing at the #40 Snowbird Air Cadet Squadron, and serving as a Deputy Commanding Officer in the Cadet Instructors Cadre, he is delighted with his new role. He also serves as Government Whip.
Greg and his wife Marjorie have three adult sons, one foster son and two grandchildren. Spending time with his family and spoiling his grandkids are his focus when he is not at work.

  1. God of all

    We pray for our province with hopes that those elected to lead, at every level, will work now for your people. We pray these men and women will humble themselves to the sacred task of governing for the people who cast votes, not the corporations and wealthy individuals who paid for influence. We pray for legislators who will care about jobs for the unemployed and underemployed, education and opportunity for children, and health care for all, especially the most vulnerable among us.

    We pray for laws that will protect and respect the resources of our province, not a thing to be owned and exploited for profit by a few. We pray for regulations that will harness the hubris and greed of the financial sector. We pray for governance that knows the difference between a financial system and an economy, the one that has become a perverted and unregulated industry, the other a respect for all human life.

    We pray for wisdom not rhetoric; generosity not indifference, and justice not patronage. We want legislators working across the aisle, not erecting barriers like the border walls that imprison even those who seek to keep others out. We pray for a just sharing in the expense of government, let those blessed with great wealth give according to their means, let all give as they are able.

    We pray for leaders gifted in diplomacy, blessed with character and integrity; leaders who know our security comes from relationships of trust and communication.

    For our part give us the patience to give our leaders a chance to govern with grace, compassion, justice, and love. Let us support sincere effort and celebrate wise compromise. Make us accountable to our faith and so hold those we elect accountable to serve all the people, not just those who can afford to pay for self-serving polices.

    May we never cease to pray, and to hope, and to work for justice for all.

    Amen.
