Lord, We are very fortunate to have a woman with the background and experience of MLA: Dawn Black serving in our legislature. We know that her many years of public service have been pleasing not only to You but to the people of Canada as a whole and to British Columbia. You say in Ecclesiastes 2:26 (NLT) that "God gives wisdom, knowledge, and joy to those who please him." so may You give these to her in abundance. Give her renewed vigor, insight and strategies to accomplish all of those things that You have laid on her heart to implement for the citizens of this province. May her family times also be extra special times of refreshing and great joy. In Jesus' name, we pray. Amen.
