MLA Rob Howard - Richmond Centre

Lord, we thank you for this representative for Richmond Centre who has brought many hours of service to his community, both volunteer and professional. We ask Lord that you give him insight into the diverse needs of this area. Give him, we pray, the people, the finances, the information and the support of all who work under and with him so he is able to represent this area with integrity, compassion and wisdom. We ask for your help in bringing those things to pass that will benefit both Richmond Centre and the Province of BC. Protect and bless his family physically, financially and spiritually we ask in Jesus Holy Name, Amen
