Lord Jesus, we are blessed to have dedicated legislators like MLA: Hon: Blair Lekstrom to give leadership to our government here in our awesome province. We give You thanks for his commitment to his constituents in Peace River South. As a lifelong resident of Dawson Creek we trust that You will continue to provide him with the wisdom and strength he requires to represent the interests of all those in the northern part of British Columbia. We also pray that the broad knowledge he has of our transportation systems, province wide, will serve him well in his role as Minister of Transportation and Infrastructure. May You keep him in good health and provide him with times of refreshing with those who are close to him this summer. In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
