Lord, as a new MLA elected this spring, today we pray for the Hon. George Chow. We thank you for his service not only to the people of Vancouver-Fraserview as MLA, but also the province of BC as the Minister of State for Trade. Give him insight and wisdom as he seeks to represent the views and best interests of those in his local riding, but also discernment as he seeks to represent the province of British Columbia, particularly in matters of trade and commerce. Grant him a humble spirit and discerning heart. Bless him and his family richly in this year of commitment and public service. Amen.
