Father, you are the source of all goodness and wisdom, and the One who directs every life. Paul is now in the position of Minister of Health with many responsibilities. So I ask you, Lord, to grant him clarity and wisdom, knowledge and understanding in dealing with the issues regarding health needs and the complexities of the medical system of this province. Give him a listening ear and the ability to act with wisdom in overseeing the various programs and services in our health care field. Bless him in the daily tasks and meet his every need. Asking all this in Jesus Name. Amen.
