MLA Janet Routledge, Burnaby North

Heavenly Father, thank you for Janet Routledge, NDP MLA Burnaby North. During this time of recovery, the needs of British Columbians are great. I pray you will give Janet everything she needs to meet those needs in the role she has taken. May she be surrounded by those who will support her and guide her in the decisions that need to be made. Father, provide her with the encouragement she needs and may she find time to slip away to quiet places of refreshment. Be her strength, and may she know she has many who care and are praying for her. In your precious name, Amen.
