Lord Jesus, bless MLA John Horgan. We ask that You would protect both he and his family as he fulfills his duties as MLA. May You direct his every step so that he may feel the confidence and support of those he serves as he undertakes all those tasks that You have for him. We pray also that this summer will be an exceptional time of rest, relaxation, refreshing and reinvigoration in preparation for the Fall legislative session. Amen.
