We pause to pray today for Jas Johal as a new MLA for Richmond-Queensborough. Equip him, Lord, to use his extensive knowledge based on his many years of experience as a journalist. Allow Jas to bring the insights and understanding he has been to glean from these experiences to bring them to bear in whatever role he is called to serve in our provincial legislature. As he sits on a standing committee to deal with crown corporations, provide him with wisdom and discernment to bring appropriate understanding and justice in regards to the issues that are raised, and in general to be able to serve effectively within our provincial legislature.
May he be given the grace to serve with integrity not only the citizens of his local riding, but also contribute to good, honest governance in our province.
Bless Jas and his family as they all adjust to the new rhythm and demands of him serving in political office. Bless him richly, and equip him to be a blessing to those he has been called to serve. We thank you, Lord, for his willingness to give of himself and his time and talents for public service.
