Heavenly father, it is an honour to pray for MLA Niki Sharma, member for Vancouver-Hastings today. Thank you, for her willingness to be the representative she needs to be for British Columbians. May she be filled with peace and comfort as she serves her constituents advocating on behalf of those in her community. May Niki know she is loved and cared for. May she feel your peaceful presence upon her and clear purpose in the work that is laid out before her. We ask that Niki would be able to find time for self care and rest so she can be healthy physically and mentally able to continue doing her best in every area of her life. We ask you to bless her. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
