MLA Craig Coolahan, Calgary-Klein

Thank you Lord for Craig’s gifts and abilities
as a writer, and also as one who is able to speak into matters of economics and
finances. Thanks for his heart for the future. We pray You’d use him to
help create a wonderful future for the next generation of Albertans. As a
leader, help him to look ahead, recognize and identify the issues that will
face our economic future. We pray You’d bless and strengthen his marriage. Help
him to be an even greater Father and Husband than MLA, to relentlessly love his
wife and children, serving them as his highest priority.
