We pray that as Leader of the Opposition MLA: Adrian Dix would seek to be guided by You, Lord. You say that Your wisdom is pure, peace-loving, gentle, full of mercy and good deeds, shows no favoritism and is sincere. May this wisdom guide him and as a result may he accomplish much for our province. Protect his thoughts and actions and surround him with principled counselors as they develop strategies for the upcoming campaign. Direct his thinking so he knows when to stand strong and when to be flexible. Give him insight and creative solutions to issues and courage, strength and heart to lead in a way that brings to the people of BC dignity, honour and respect. In Jesus name, we pray. Amen.
