MLA Nicholas Simons, Powell River-Sunshine Coast

Father, bless MLA Nicholas Simons in every way as he continues to serve British Columbia. As he considers his role in the everyday decisions being made and carried out, may he see every day as an opportunity to influence change. May he hear the needs of the weaker and marginalized in our society even when others may not hear them. And may he speak with confidence on their behalf and with Your love for them. May many be blessed through him as he chooses what’s right, even when it’s not popular. In Jesus name, Amen…….
