MLA Hon Jim Reiter, Rosetown-Elrose

in Heaven, we pray for Hon. Jim Reiter today.  He has been entrusted with
a challenging and complex portfolio as Minister of Health.  Help him as he
oversees and provides leadership to this crucial area of our province.
 Help him to see past the difficulties and problems and into the
possibilities that are buried within them.  Give him and the people who
work with him fresh ideas and approaches that will bring creative solutions to
this important area.  More
than anything, we pray that his burden would be light and that he would look to
You for wisdom and counsel as he serves.  Bless him today!  Amen
