Dear Heavenly Father; We pray that MLA Kathy Corrigan would continue to be bold as she advocates for public education.  May the outcome of her work as Opposition Critic, provoke quality decisions in Cabinent that are grounded in respect and dignity.  We ask that You bless her with wisdom, health and endurance for the days to come.
