Dear Heavenly Father, today we join together in prayer for the Honourable Doug Schweitzer, MLA for Calgary-Elbow. We pray especially for his work with rebuilding Alberta’s economy through local, small businesses. We echo the words God spoke to the Israelite children in Numbers 6:24-26, “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace.” In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Doug Schweitzer was elected on April 16, 2019, as the MLA for Calgary-Elbow. A husband, father of two young girls and a long-serving community volunteer, Schweitzer was a partner at a leading Alberta law firm as a restructuring and bankruptcy lawyer. He was appointed as Alberta’s Minister of Justice and Attorney General on April 30, 2019. He is committed to working with Alberta’s prosecutors, police and justice system to improve public safety, address rural crime, and make Alberta a leader in combating human trafficking.
