Thank you Father, for the wealth of experience that you have already provided for the Honourable Jeremy Harrison. Our prayer is that the wisdom and knowledge that comes from his diverse service as both an MP and an MLA and from his wide range of portfolios will be fully engaged and brought to bear on the important issues of today. We also pray that he will have opportunity to bring his considerable skills and wisdom to help all MLA’s regardless of their political association to become the best they can in their roles. We ask, Father, that you make clear to him and to others the opportunities you are preparing for him to contribute to a legacy of improved governance in Saskatchawan. Amen.
