Dear Lord. Thank you for
the Honourable Kevin Doherty. We ask you to give him an extra helping of grace,
wisdom and compassion as he navigates the challenges of balancing a budget
after a commodity price drop. We know this is really hard, and we pray that he
would hear your inspiration and leading as he continues to chart the course for
Saskatchewan’s finances in the coming months. Give him a restful summer that
includes a deeper spiritual walk. Amen.
