Lord, as we approach Your Throne of Grace this morning, we give thanks for Hon Shane Simpson. We give thanks for his hard working ethics; creative ideas; his alertness in recognizing the needs not only in his riding, but in the whole of BC. Please help him to be most effective in this very important portfolio that is so necessary for the well being of many British Columbians. Bless his family with Your love and care for all their needs. In Jesus name we pray, Amen…………………..
