Lord we thank you for Christine Tell, and for using every aspect of her character and skills to serve her constituents and the residents of this province. Given the announced plans to integrate community safety officers and to increase available peace officers and the plans and discussions taking place around provincial policing initiatives, we want to ask for great clarity of mission, increasingly valuable input from experts, and for the wisdom of what to act on, what to delay, what to propose and what to set aside. Father we also ask that her experiences will contribute to her decision making, but that her experiences will not deter her from hearing the wisdom of others. Father bring your grace and mercy to Minister Tell so that she has the clarity of heart, mind, and soul to serve with excellence in these important days. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
