Lord, thank You for bringing Jane into our provincial government; thank you for her enthusiasm in all she does, so much appreciated by others. We bless her in Your Name, Jesus.

We ask that You anoint her with great joy, and let her light shine not only in the halls of the Legislature, but in her constituency and in her family. May Your grace abound for her so that, "Thy will be done in North Vancouver-Seymour and all B.C."

Thank You for hearing us, Father. Amen.
