Dear Heavenly Father, this day, we lift up the Honourable Nathan Cooper, MLA for Olds-Didsbury-Three Hills. We say a prayer in regards to his service as a member of the Special Standing Committee on Members’ Services. As he looks after the financial and personnel administration, we pray that all staff are able to work together amicably. We pray according to 1 Corinthians 1:10, “by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment.” (ESV) In Jesus’ Name, Amen…….
