Father, as the Honourable Gordon Wyant looks into the issues and opportunities within Post-Secondary Education in Saskatchewan will you guide his mind, and his team to observe and understand the needs, importance and risks facing our institutions? Continue to help Mr. Wyant to be fully engaged and passionate about his role – seeing and acting on timely issues while avoiding distractions. Father we also ask that you would joyfully contribute to his capacity to observe and find humour in the irony and the juxtaposition of life that he observes around him. Amen.
