Father, thank you for Jeff Burch’s tireless work for the people of his riding. Whatever difficulties he is facing, we ask that you would help him. Give him guidance in making right decisions for the people of Ontario. A life of service can be draining, so we pray that you watch over his health. Remind him that you are always willing to help those who ask. We pray for Jeff’s family as they navigate the difficulties every Ontario family is facing right now. Be their strength today and always (Psalm 106:1).
