Lord Jesus please hear my prayer for Mr. Rick Wilson.  I thank you so much for Rick and his service to the province of Alberta and the people of Maskwacis-Wetaskiwin.  Thank you lord for equipping Rick with the experience, tools and expertise required to be the minister of Indigenous Relations.  Give him the wisdom and strength to carry out his duties.  Let Rick feel your power and guiding spirit in his life. Bless him and his family in the coming year. I pray these things in Jesus’ name, amen.
