Father, we are thankful for this young man, MPP Vijay Thanigasalam, who has stepped up to represent the people of his constituency. We ask your blessing on him as he carries out his responsibilities on various committees. Wisdom is needed to put forth ideas that will benefit Ontario, therefore, we ask that he, and those he serves with on committees, would show discernment and prudence as they act on behalf of the people of Ontario. We ask for health and protection for MPP Thanigasalam and his family (Psalm 31:24). Amen.
