The fear of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom. Thank You Lord that MPP Doly Begum desires to increase in wisdom. May she grow in having respect and love for You. May You bless her to be a leader who by her example encourages others to work with integrity and according to the rules of engagement for the betterment of Ontario. You, Father, have not forgotten the faithfulness of her youth, and You are mindful of her faithfulness. May Your great blessings be upon Doly as she sets forth to begin afresh this new year. May You grant her the desire of her heart, to represent her constituents and her family well. Show her Lord, that Your love never fails and that as she grows in trusting You, You will grant her peace, stability and ability to see her dreams come to pass. Amen..
