Lord, today we pray for Mary Polak, as you have called her to continue to serve as MLA for the riding of Langley. You have blessed her with very extensive experience and responsibility in various ministries and capacities over the years that she has served in the BC legislature. Grant her insight and discernment as she considers the best way to serve not only the constituents of her Langley riding, but also as a conscientious member of the opposition in our provincial legislature in this coming year. Bless Mary with health, energy and wisdom in 2018.
Mary Polak was re-elected as MLA for Langley in 2017, having represented the constituents of Langley since 2005.
