MLA: Raj Chouhan - Burnaby Edmonds

Photo of MLAFather , we give thanks to-day for the privilege to pray for MLA. Raj Chouhan. It has been proven once again, by his constituents in Burnaby -Edmonds, the value and confidence they have in Raj to lead them for another term.

His experience to anticipate and discern the needs of his community is evident. May he be strengthened by wisdom and good judgement as he seeks to find new and fresh ways to implement change that will benefit all he serves so faithfully.

Dear Lord, watch over him, prorect and keep him safe as he travels. Richly, bless his wife and their two children, as they seek to have quality time to-gether. We pray for continued good health and happiness.

In Jesus Name, Amen
