Father, I bring Jackie Tegart, LIB MLA Fraser-Nicola before you, asking you to be her strength and wisdom in the work that she does. These past many months have been trying and discouraging in many ways but you know everything and how to direct our leaders. Thank you for her willingness to be a part of the solutions to the many challenges that are being faced in this province. I pray that she will know there are many who care and are praying for her. Keep her in your care, I ask in your name. Amen.
