Good and gracious Heavenly Father, we thank you today for the work of MPP Norm Miller for the province of Ontario. We thank you for his passion and his dedication. We ask a blessing today on his wife and children, and pray your favour and protection on them. Like a tree planted by the waters, we ask that you help him to be rooted in truth and faithfulness, and that he is nourished and filled with living water to strengthen him and help him thrive. Send your blessing to his staff as they try to help the riding they serve navigate the difficulties of the pandemic and come through it stronger together. Amen
