Father in Heaven, we pray for MLA Buckley Belanger, asking that You

constituents of Athabasca well. We pray that 
You give him wisdom as he makes
decisions and also the strategies he needs to put new initiatives in place. May
he and his family members experience 
Your blessing and presence in their lives.  Amen
