Lord God, we raise Surrey-Newton MLA the Hon. Harry Baines before You with thanksgiving and ask that You would ordain his steps as he serves his community and legislature as Official Opposition spokesperson for Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations. The Bible tells us in 1 John 5:14 (NKJV): “Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.” May this be the case for Mr. Baines this summer. In the name of Jesus our Lord, Amen….
