Lord, we thank You for Your word, that teaches us 2 Cor. 3:5 “our sufficiency is from God.” As we pray for one of our more recent legislators, MLA Jas Johal today, we take note of the true advocate he is, as he voices his desire to protect the people of this province. Help him to know this truth that indeed, His grace will be sufficient in all situations. We pray Your blessing of peace, joy and happiness, to rest on him, his wife Seera and their son Ishaan. We pray in Jesus name, Amen
