In Your good time, Lord You have raised up talented individuals to represent the people of British Columbia. MLA: Harry Bains is one of those very dedicated men who has given much time and effort to the sometimes thankless tasks to which he has committed himself on our behalf. We pray, therefore, that You will encourage him to redouble his efforts in this new year. We pray for good health and renewed strength for him, his good wife and children as they press forward together with wise insight and the dedication of a humble servant. In Jesus mighty name we pray. Amen.
