Lord God, Colossians 4:2 states “Devote yourselves to prayer, keeping alert in it with an attitude of thanksgiving” and we do so as we lift Burnaby North MLA, Janet Routledge to you in prayer. Thank you for her service to her constituency and the province. May she know your wisdom and discernment in all areas for which she is responsible. Please keep Ms. Routledge and her husband in your loving care, cover them with your safety and keep them healthy as they enter the autumn season. In Jesus’ holy name, we pray, amen.
