Father, today we are thankful and grateful that we have a person like MLA: Kathy Corrigan serving in our legislature. We pray that You will continue to lead and guide her in her second term as MLA. May she find new avenues where she can put her many years of experience as a lawyer and public policy researcher to use in order to make British Columbia an even better place to live and work. We pray also that over the summer break she will receive a renewed sense of encouragement and excitement from her family, friends and colleagues . In Jesus’ name. Amen.
