Lord, You say in Philippians 2:4 “do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others.”. We are grateful that we have a person like MLA: Jackie Tegart who demonstrates this quality serving in our legislature. We thank You for her heart for serving the people shown by her many years as a city councilor, school board member and chair and school trustee. We pray that You will direct her to places and initiatives as an MLA where she will be able to continue to apply her knowledge. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
