MLA: Don McRae

It is with gratefulness to God that we offer up this prayer of blessing for Don McRae our newly elected MLA here in the Comox Valley. Our prayer first of all is for Don and his family. Father in Heaven we would ask you to keep Don’s family including his wife Deanne and their beautiful daughter Gracie under your loving care and protection. Secondly we pray that Don would be granted wisdom from God as he seeks to lead and represent the many needs and concerns in the Comox Valley and British Columbia. Finally our prayer is that Don would know he is not alone, but has many friends who care and are committed to encouraging and praying for him on a regular basis. We pray this in Jesus name. Amen
