Heavenly Father You have blessed British Columbia with great resources but we haven't always been great stewards of these resources so we are asking that John would be a strong advocate on behalf of our energy, mines and petroleum resources. That John would be diligent in bringing to light areas that need to be overhauled, re-looked at and/or changed - these areas are a huge responsibility at this time as new methods and applications of energy need to be brought to the fore and as petroleum resources are in great demand. Help John to be strong as he stands in this position and give him creative ideas to bring to the table and to bring about good stewardship of the wealth within BC's resources.
In Jesus Name, Amen
