MLA Rakhi Pancholi, Edmonton-Whitemud

Today, we lift up Ms. Rakhi Pancholi and her position as MLA for Edmonton-Whitemud. As she serves on the Standing Committee on Families and Communities, we ask that You guide her in her work with children’s services, social services, and justice (among other things). As Psalm 127:3 says, “Children are a heritage from the Lord, offspring a reward from him” (NIV), we pray that our province would honour families and children above all things. In Jesus’ name, Amen…….
