Dear Heavenly father, thank you for the gift of another glorious day to serve and praise you. We lift up the Hon Lori Carr and ask for your grace and guidance as Lori focuses on her duties and commitments. Lord, as the waves of change flow through this province, allow Lori to rise above any conflict that would deter her from her duties, and in these instances, may she speak with tact and dignity peppered with humility and love. Protect her and strengthen her, giving her times of rest and rejuvenation to keep her sharp and curious. You have created her for such a time as this. We are excited to see how her God ordained talents will bring positive change to this province. Thank you for Lori, God. We ask all these things in Jesus’ name, Amen!
