As the Minister of Public Safety and Solicitor General, we pray that you would grant him wisdom to navigate through all the complex issues of this area that affect the lives of every British Columbian. We pray for all the relationships between municipalities, organizations and individuals with whom he will be overseeing and networking. We ask that for understanding between them and that effective and peaceful resolutions will be made for the betterment of this great province.

We ask for your blessing to be upon him. As he leads, may he find the strength in You to lead with integrity and honor. Protect his health. May your keeping power be upon him, his wife and daughter.
