We pause to pray today for our MLA for Surrey-Cloverdale, Marvin Hunt. You have blessed him, Heavenly Father, with extensive background and experience in politics (serving on Surrey City Council), so he knows his local community very well. W e pray that he would use his background and experience to serve honestly and effectively as MLA. You have also blessed Marvin and his wife, Ruth, abundantly with a large family, so grant him time Lord, to also bless and enjoy all of this extended family you have given him. Use all of these blessings in his life, and also his extensive experiences, to bear much fruit as he seeks to serve the people of his constituency wisely and with integrity. Amen.
