We pause to pray today for Joan Isaacs as a new MLA for Coquitlam-Burke Mountain. Equip her, Lord, to use her training and experiences to help others in need, particularly in her role as critic for senior care and also the select standing committee for children and youth. These groups represent some of the vulnerable in our society, so provide insight to Joan in order to serve effectively within our provincial legislature.
May she be given the grace to serve with integrity not only the citizens of her local riding, but also contribute to supporting the needs of many people in this province with challenges and difficulties. For such a time as this, Lord, allow her to be utilized in capacities where she can bring her passions to bear to help many who need representation for various reasons.
Bless Joan and her family as they all adjust to the new rhythm and demands of her serving in political office. Bless her richly, and equip her to be a blessing to those she has been called to serve. We thank you, Lord, for her willingness to serve and to be used by you to support and help others.
