Heavenly Father, I bring Rakhi Pancholi to you in prayer. Thank you so much for Rakhi and her service to the community of Edmonton-Whitemud and thank you for keeping her and her family safe. Thanks for guiding them to the place in life that they are in. I pray that your will would be done through Rakhi, in the area of Education and as critic for children’s services. Help Rakhi to understand what is required in using her unique skills and talents to improve education and children’s services in the province. Help her to feel your presence and gentle voice of leading in all areas of her life. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
