Lord God, You are sovereign over all things. We thank You for all the MLAs as they serve us all. May You bless the hands of MLA Doug Steele. Please give knowledge to Mr Steele to be able to persevere through challenges. Father, give him Your encouragement. Lord let him take heart and be of good courage. We ask that You show Your love and grace to Doug’s friends and family. To the people of Cypress Hills and all the people of Saskatchewan; Lord show Your hand of favour. Thank you Father, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
