Father in Heaven, we are grateful for the life and faithful service of MPP Burch. We ask that you would remind Jeff about your goodness and love in his life. May he use the knowledge of your providence in his life as fuel for serving in the hard and difficult work of public service. In the year ahead, as he’s faced with heavy, difficult, decisions in both his parliamentary role and in serving the people of Niagara Centre, please bless him with wisdom and direction each step along his way. Bless also his family and staff with your peace and comfort in 2022. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
