We give thanks Father this morning as we pray together for MLA: Jane Shin, the first Canadian of Korean descent to be named as a member of the provincial legislature in BC. We are blessed by her dedication and service to her province and country. We pray Proverbs 3:5 that she will trust You as You direct her paths in her journey in the legislature and to lead with wisdom. We pray that You will keep her in good health and fill her with Your joy and peace. In Jesus name we pray. Amen.
