Dear God in Heaven, we pray a blessing today on MPP Michael Gravelle. Lord, would you bless him this today. Would you protect him as he travels to and front Thunder Bay Superior North to Toronto. Would you give him your favour and blessing as he does his work each and every day and make him a blessing in his riding and to all those he comes in contact with. Thank you for his gifts and talents Lord, and for inspiring him to use them to serve others, we pray in Jesus name, Amen…….
