Gracious Father in Heaven, we pray for Hon. Sheila Malcolmson, MLA for Nanaimo. You have given her this role as Minister of Mental Health and Addictions, may you fill her with wisdom and clarity as she helps navigate our mental health system. Give her grace and patience as she continues to help British Columbians through her role. Bless Sheila and her partner with health and strength and may they find time together for each other aside from work. In Jesus’ Name. Amen
