Hon. Lori Carr, Estevan

Our Lord has said he is more pleased when we provide justice and mercy than when we provide sacrifices (Proverbs 21:3). Father, we thank-you for Minister Carr whom you have given a very unique role within Government, as Minister of Social Services. Father we thank you that you are creating opportunities for Minister Carr to set in motion godly worship every time someone without a voice has a need met. Father thank you that every time justice is served to someone who cannot seek it for themselves that you are glorified. Father we ask that you give the Minister the ability to hear your call, to see with your eyes and to care with your heart. We ask for an increasing measure of knowledge, wisdom, and spiritual insight to balance the needs of her constituents and the needs of all Saskatchewan peoples. Amen.
