Our God in heaven we pray for MPP Miller, and thank you for his long term contribution to Ontario in many roles. This demonstrates his capacity and depth of service, sustained over two decades in the Legislature. We ask that he is refreshed this season, and with your help, continues to lead in the work of Intergovermental Affairs and the Standing Committee on Government Agencies. Amen.
