Jesus, you have given Selina a passion for politics for a reason. We pray that you would use her in the Legislature to advocate policy that honours you and benefits all British Columbians. Make her heart soft to hearing from you and surround her with the right people. May she carry a sense of your provision for her family throughout this year. In Jesus name, amen.
