Jesus, You are quoted in John 15:7 as saying "If you abide in Me, and My words abide in You, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for You." (NASB). We pray that You will continue to strengthen, encourage and guide MLA: Kathy Corrigan as she serves in the legislature of British Columbia. We ask this so that she is able to implement those things that you have laid on her heart to accomplish for the citizens of our province. We also ask that You would give her renewed encouragement from her family and close friends and a supernatural peace in the midst of her busy schedule. In Jesus' name, we pray.
