Honourable David Eggen – MLA for Edmonton-Calder

God, we join together across Alberta to pray for Cabinet Minister, Hon. Mr.

share their heart about the education of their children. Thank you that you
give him compassion, wisdom and understanding to speak on behalf of Albertans’

We pray that through your guidance, you will enable Alberta to become the
leader in the nation we are meant to be. Amen
