Dear Lord Jesus, we thank you for the life of MPP Paul Calandra and his long tenure serving the people of this province and the nation of Canada. God we ask in the name of Jesus that Your hand would be upon him to grant him increased wisdom in You and grace before You and man. Help him to lead the people well. Pour out Your lovingkindness upon him and those he cares for. Bless them with a deeper understanding of You and Your immense love. Amen.
