Father, there are so many people from coast to coast, constituency to constituency, Legislature to Legislature and in our national assemblies that support elected officials. Our prayer for these valuable people includes spiritual and physical protection. Our prayer for these hard working people includes perseverance and empathy. Our prayer for these solution-finding people includes wisdom, knowledge and creativity. Father, we ask for each of the Constituency, Legislative and Ministerial Assistants that you would provide them with times of rest and times to re-imagine and re-engage with their roles. Father, we acknowledge how vital they are to the governments of Canada and each province and ask for your blessing on the work they do for their elected officials and for the electorate who reaches out to them for important case work. Amen.
