Heavenly Father, you have given Bob strength and endurance over these many years of public service, and we thank you for his longtime, faithful, and ongoing work for the people of Sarnia—Lambton. We ask that you would bless Bob, his wife Elizabeth, their children, and their grandchildren. Watch over them in a very special way. Protect them from harm and shelter them from discouragement and difficulty. Please help them to know and embrace your presence and work in their lives. In Jesus’ name we pray, amen.
