Lord Jesus, I bring Mr. Nathan Cooper to you in prayer. Thank you so much father, for Nathan and for equipping him for a life of service in the province of Alberta and specifically the Olds-Didsbury-Three Hills areas. I pray that you would grant Nathan favour when dealing with other leaders in his community, province and country. Bless him with patience, wisdom and a close personal relationship with you. Let your will be done in his life and let your will be done through him in the province of Alberta. Keep Nathan and his family safe and healthy this year. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
