Our Lord in Heaven, because Your name is exalted above all names in Heaven and on earth, we call on You to minister to John Yakabuski. As the Minister of Natural Resources and Forestry, John holds an important portfolio, one that requires wisdom from above. As he represents his riding, may he be conscious of your presence. Bless him with wisdom as he tackles many difficult problems facing the government of Ontario. Reward his efforts to represent his constituents and all the people of our province. Bless the Yakabuski family with peace, health, and prosperity. (3 John 1:2)……..
