Lord, we are thankful for another year to praise and thank you for the blessings of the past. We’re thankful for MPP Paul Calandra and his service to the people of his riding. We assume like all years that this one will bring a mix of blessings and challenges for our province and for MPP Calandra. Even the challenges can work for our good if we submit them to you, therefore, we bring the events of the coming year to you asking that you will give MPP Calandra wisdom to make the best decisions, courage to implement them, and health to match his tasks. Bless his family and team as they support him. (Deut. 11:11,12) We pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
