Lord, our prayer is for MPP Natyshak, his team, and his family. We appreciate the system whereby differing views can be expressed in a constructive way, still keeping the interests of Ontarians at heart. We thank you for his energy and pray you grant him wisdom in the performing of various parliamentary roles. We also pray for the region as the location near the United States border is a unique factor, and ask you to help the constituents with positive opportunities. Amen.
