Hon. Travis Toews, Grande Prairie-Wapiti

Father we lift Mr. Toews to you in prayer and intercession as 1Timothy 2:1-3 speaks. “I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone, for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.  This is good, and pleases God our Savior.” We pray your hand upon Mr. Toews granting him wisdom, discernment, vision, direction – may he see and hear clearly what you have placed within him. We pray blessings and protection over Mr. Toews, his wife, children and grandchildren. In Jesus’ mighty name, Amen!
