Father, we pray Your hand of blessing would be upon Selina Robinson, MLA for Coquitlam-Maillardville and Opposition Critic for Local Government and Sports. We pray that You would encourage MLA Robinson and allow her to see how all of her efforts have been making a difference. We ask that You would renew her strength and energy and that she would sense You nearby and know it is You. Give her clarity of thought and of direction, we pray. Bless her and her family with great health. We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
