Lord Jesus, hear my prayer for Rakhi Pancholi. Thank you so much for Rakhi and her service to the community of Edmonton-Whitemud and our province. I pray that you would bless her and her family. Rakhi has a wealth of knowledge and experience as a lawyer and advocate for education, I pray that you would guide her in using those skills for your glory. Build Rakhi up and let your will be done through her. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
