Lord, we thank You for legislators who are passionate, diligent and committed to seeing that the province of British Columbia has the best possible government and legislation. We thank You that You have just such a man in MLA: John Horgan currently serving in our legislature. We pray that You will give him fresh vision and insight as to where to best concentrate his efforts in order to be even more effective in accomplishing those things that he wants to bring to fruition. May he also receive renewed encouragement from his colleagues, staff and friends as he goes about his day. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
