      Let’s pray for Mr. Bevington as he has a really large riding, landwise, compared to other ridings that are smaller and more populated in the cities.  He needs strength and the time and the ability just to travel the vastness of it, to meet the people and to represent them fairly.  Many of his consituents would be aboriginal with special needs relating to living conditions, health care, education, etc.  Pray that the Lord would give him wisdom and a heart for justice and compassion for everyone that he represents.
