Thank You, Father, that You have given us MLA: Dawn Black. We appreciate that You placed on her heart a change from federal politics to provincial politics thereby gifting us with one of the top MPs in Canada as selected by the Toronto Star. We ask Lord that You will guide her in her role as the Assistant Deputy Speaker. We believe God that You will give her wisdom, health and strength in her daily work and with her family. Thank You for keeping her with us and serving the people of British Columbia. In Jesus' name, we pray.
