Heavenly Father, you defend the weak and the fatherless; you uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed. Lord, I thank you that the Hon Don McMorris is in the position of working alongside the First Nations people. May he be granted from you wisdom and love, truth with grace, in his conversations and work with the First Nations and Metis peoples. May he be instrumental in bringing healing to those who have experienced loss over generations. Wisdom in working out the next right steps. Thank you Lord. Amen.
