Lord God, we pause today to pray for Vijay Thanigasalam. We are grateful for young men and women that You call and empower to give themselves to public service. Today we pray that Vijay would know and experience Your love for him in profound and powerful ways and that Your love would overflow in his life as he gives himself to serving his constituents and the people of Ontario. Make today amazing for him and for those who surround and support him! Guide and bless him today! Amen…….
