Fill her with your presence and grant her all she needs to carry out her duties as the Minister for Children and Family Development. May she receive fresh and innovative ideas to assist vulnerable families in British Columbia. Care for Ms. Conroy, her husband and their extended family in all they do this fall. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen.
