On this day we lift up Travis Toews, MLA for Grande Prairie-Wapiti and his service on the treasury board and finance. We pray Proverbs 10:22, that “The blessing of the LORD brings wealth, without painful toil for it.” Please guide him and help our province remain financially stable. In the amazing name of Jesus we pray, Amen.
