Hon Kathleen Ganley, Calgary-Buffalo

God, I thank you for
Kathleen’s brilliant mind and mental acuity. She is bright, sharp, witty,
highly educated and therefore loaded with potential to make a positive impact
in our Province. Put her in places where she can excel, not merely for her own
success, but for the sake of Calgary-Buffalo and even wider than that. Help her
to be an amazing leader, who is not afraid to stand up for what is right and
good, and bold enough to be able to identify the issues that really matter
amidst all of the fluff of our culture. As I pray for her, I sense in my heart
that you have so much purpose for her life; perhaps more than she had
previously imagined. Equip her. Help her to trust that you are there and that
you are on her side. Lift her spirits today!
