Dear heavenly Father, today, we ask for your blessings upon the Honourable Mr. Nathan Cooper, MLA for Olds-Didsbury-Three Hills. We ask that you bless his attempts to bring all cultures together and encourage him as he promotes equality. We know the apostle Paul said of you, “For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility.” We pray that you help Mr. Cooper as he focuses on destroying that same barrier. In Jesus’ blessed Name we pray, Amen!
