Heavenly Father we pray today for the newly appointed Minister of Transportation Hon. John Yakabuski. Enable his experience as an MPP and his faith to guide all his decisions and actions. Give him discernment, making him sensitive to your promptings and to follow your Divine guidance and wisdom. Place a Divine Shield of protection over him and his family keeping them safe and healthy; mentally, emotionally, physically and spiritually. Give him the courage to stand strong on his morale values of doing what is right. Convict him to lead as you God would have him lead and serve the people of Ontario well. This we pray in the powerful name of Jesus Christ! Amen!
John was raised on politics as his father, Paul Yakabuski, served as the Provincial Member for the riding of Renfrew South for 24 years.John grew up in a family of 14 children, just about enough for a quorum on its own. He and his wife Vicky have four children and nine grandchildren.
