Father, hear my prayer for Ms. Rakhi Pancholi. Jesus, thank you so much for Rakhi and the expertise that she brings to her constituents in the Edmonton-Whitemud area. I pray that you would fill her with your power and guide her as she works to improve the school system in our province. Keep Rakhi and her family safe and healthy. Comfort them and fill them with peace this year, as Ms. Pancholi continues to pursue her goals in government. In your precious and holy name I pray. amen.
