MLA Katrine Conroy - Kootenay West
We ask that you cause her desires and goals to come in line with Yours, that she would be a conduit of blessing for the people of the West Kootenays and beyond. May you grant her success in her public career as an MLA, even as you have blessed her in her private endeavours, and may she recognize that it is You that has done this, oh Lord.
