Lord, today we pray for the MLA for Cariboo North, Coralee Oakes. You have called her to serve not only the people from her riding, but also to utilize her extensive community involvement and business experience to benefit others in her role as critic for small business. Grant Coralee insight, wisdom and discernment as she considers the best way to use her background and experience to provide pertinent advice and counsel regarding business practices and policies in BC. Guide her thoughts and decisions as she participates in provincial issues and topics, but also as she supports her local constituents. Bless her with the strength and energy required in this significant role in public service. Amen…………….
