We thank You, Father, for Nathan and his role as Speaker of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta and chair of the Special Standing Committee on Members’ Services. His public speaking awards show You have gifted him as a speaker. Proverbs 2:10-11 says that “when wisdom enters
your heart, and knowledge is pleasant to your soul, discretion will preserve you; Understanding will keep you.” We ask for wisdom and knowledge for Nathan in his career as well as personal life and that discretion will preserve him, and understanding will keep him. May he conduct himself with integrity in all that he does. Amen.
