Hon. Travis Toews, Grande Prairie-Wapiti

We give you thanks, Heavenly Father, for Hon. Travis Toews and his willingness to serve in the political realm. We ask for wisdom and discernment for him in his role as MLA and a cabinet minister. May his past management over a corporate family cattle ranching operation and an oilfield environmental company and his CPA and CMA accounting designations be utilized in his role as President of the Treasury Board and Minister of Finance. Give him creative ideas and strategies. We bless him and his wife, Kim, with health and may love and harmony abound in their marriage. We pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.
