Lord, today we pray for MLA Stephanie Cadieux, as you have called her to continue to serve in our provincial legislature, this time in the riding of Surrey South. We give thanks, Lord, for her faithful and diligent service in various ministries over the past eight years. We pray that you would grant her insight and discernment as she considers the best way to serve not only the constituents of her Surrey riding, but also as a conscientious member of the opposition in our provincial legislature this year, utilizing her diversity of experience in various capacities in government over the past two terms. Bless Stephanie with health, energy and wisdom in this coming year. Equip her to serve with integrity and wisdom, Lord, in whatever roles or circumstances she finds herself. Amen
