Father God, we ask that you would bless MLA Nello Altomare today. May he know your peace, comfort, encouragement, and guidance for all he faces in his life. May he and his family feel your love today. Guide him in his work as well Lord. May his passion for education that he spent much of his life doing be a blessing to those in his riding and to the whole province. Amen.
