God in heaven, we pause today to pray for the city of Nanaimo and the byelection that is being held there today. We thank you for each candidate who has stepped forward willing to serve the people of Nanaimo and our province – bless each one. We recognize there has been a lot of attention focused on this byelection with its many political implications, but above all else we ask you to give us a person of extraordinary integrity, trustworthiness, and honour. Infuse this new MLA with divine wisdom and understanding and the courage to do what is right. We continue to ask for your blessing on our province and all 87 MLA’s that you have placed in leadership – Amen.
