Everything officially changed today in the Senate of Canada. With the retirement of Liberal Senator Peter Stollery, the Conservative Party now has an technical majority for the first time in a very long time.
Let’s pray that the Senate would continue to make wise decisions based on “sober second thought” rather than on partisan politics.
Let’s pray for former Senator Peter Stollery as he retires. May he continue to live a healthy and productive life, where he can enjoy his family and friends. May he continue to make strong contributions to the nation and may he know the Lord’s blessing.
Let’s also pray for the 3 by-elections that are taking place today, that the Lord’s hand would be on each riding, that there would be fair voting practices and that good M.P.’s would take their new places on Parliament Hill.
