Our Father in heaven, on this day, we ask for your hand to be upon the Honourable Whitney Issik, MLA for Calgary-Glenmore. We pray that you would bless her commitment to bringing jobs back to Alberta. We know that “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.” according to James 1:17 and we pray that Ms. Issik would help guide all Calgarians to acknowledge this as well. In the powerful name of Jesus we pray, Amen!
