Thank you, Father, for Travis. As President of Treasury Board and Minister of Finance may he operate out of your wisdom and discernment. May his past business interests and his CMA and CPA help him in his role, and may he find in you guidance and insight that is supernatural. We ask for your blessing upon his family, children and grandchildren and on his political career. Keep him and his loved ones safe and healthy. Amen.
