We pray for Mable Elmore today and ask that you would help her as she takes on her new responsibilities as MLA for Vancouver Kensington. Lord, we are so thankful that you have called the first Filipino Canadian to serve as an MLA. Thank you for granting us leaders with diversity and a broad perspective. Help her Lord as she sets up her community office and give her wisdom, as she is already dealing with a wide variety of concerns from her constituents on issues such as affordable housing, class sizes in schools, and workplace conditions.
We ask this in Jesus Name, Amen.
