TRC Call to Prayer

Father God,
We desire that all people living in Canada will receive healthcare in an equitable way. We pray that no one will suffer due to disputes over whose responsibility it is to pay the bill. May all levels of government have the patients’ needs as a priority. Please give wisdom to the policymakers, as they have not only a fiscal responsibility but also a moral responsibility to meet the health needs of all living in Canada.  Amen
Context: TRC Call to Action #20
