MLA: Scott Fraser - Alberni-Pacific Rim
Father, we thank You for the strength that You have imparted to MLA: Scott Fraser. Strength of character, integrity and the ability to understand the complexities that he faces in his every day life. We ask that You would further strengthen him and that he would see clearly the issues that stand before him as he makes decisions that affect not only his personal life but also those of the people that live in this great province. In Jesus' name, we pray.
