Father, thank you for the legacy of community service that is being established through the life and example of the Honourable Christine Tell. We pray that her mind and heart will not be darkened or weakened by her exposure to the aspects of Policing and Corrections that most of us know nothing about. Protect her, Father, from any influence that would seek to diminish her commitment and resolve to serve Saskatchewan with honour. Holy Spirit, lead and guide Minister Tell while providing the direction, knowledge and wisdom she needs. Form within her deep clarity on the next important initiatives that she will put her hand to. Amen.
