Our thoughts and prayers are with MLA Jackie Tegart today, who faithfully cares for, advocates for, and diligently works to fulfill the pressing needs for this huge riding, that has suffered many losses this past year. We prayer Your word over her, that never fails. May she know the truth of 2 Cor . 12: 9 that assures us and encourages “My grace is sufficient for you, My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Thank you Lord for answering our prayers, as we continue in prayer, for Your blessings to be poured on all she does, her family needs, their joys, and her own well-being. Amen………….
