Dear God, thank You for being there for MPP Bhutila Karpoche. Thank You for the privilege You have granted her to not only represent the people of Parkdale – High Park; but also, her native Tibetan people. May her voice be a voice for the voiceless and may justice roll on like a river and uprightness like a never-ending stream through her contribution at Queen’s Park. Bless her and the works of her hands as You pour out Your love on her. In Jesus name, Amen.
