Lord, today we thank you for Hon. Whitney Issik. We ask for wisdom and discernment for Whitney in her role as a member of the Standing Committee on the Alberta Heritage Savings Trust Fund and the Standing Committee on Resource Stewardship. May her background in economics and political science and her experience in a retail business give her the insight required in the natural, but Father, enhance that insight with spiritual discernment. Thank you, Father, for her service in her leadership roles of building and rebuilding organizations. Bless her as wife to Suli and as mother to her two sons. May she be able to rightly divide her time and attention among her many roles. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
