Hon. Mark Docherty, Regina Coronation Park

Father, Mark is a man of many accomplishments and has served well in the opportunities provided him. Father, what we personally accomplish and do in the service of others here in this life, if done on behalf of ourselves may live on in the memory of others.  Yet, what we accomplish and do in the service of You, Father echos throughout eternity. Father I ask of You that Mark would not rest in his accomplishments, but would look to something much deeper, much more fulfilling in the service of You the Almighty. Father may he be exposed to and challenged by the things of You. May he be inquisitive in what the greater purpose of life really is. May Mark seek You and find You, and may his final accomplishments be ones anchored in eternity. Amen……
