Hon. Paul Merriman, Saskatoon Silverspring-Sutherland

Father as Minister Merriman continues to lead Saskatchewan Health ministries we pray that you would give him clarity of vision and an ability to articulate vision within the ministry. We also ask for the wisdom to be able to hear, see and understand primary issues and to be able to sort through conflicting priorities to the benefit of the people of Saskatchewan. Father we pray for a direct path for critical information to arrive within the Minister’s control and for unnecessary, irrelevant or misleading information to be filtered out so that the best health care system decisions can be made and acted on. We also ask for wisdom for the team of people in the ministry and for the team in the riding of Saskatoon Silverspring-Sutherland. Amen.
