Father God, please hear my prayer for the Hon. Demetrius Nicolaides. Thank you so much for Demetrius and his service to our province and city as member of the legislative assembly for the Calgary-Bow region. Lord, equip him with humility and wisdom as he uses his vast knowledge and skills in mediation and arbitration to fight for positive change in our community. I pray that you would guide him as Minister of Advanced Education and that he would listen to and respond to your leading in improving our post secondary institutions. Bless him and his family in the coming year as well with safety and health. These things I pray in Jesus name, amen.
