Dear heavenly Father, today we come together to pray for Mr. Glenn van Dijken, MLA for Athabasca-Barrhead-Westlock. We especially pray for his work regarding Alberta’s economic future. Give him wisdom and direction and help him lead us to honour You with our finances and trust in You above all else. Let us keep in mind what Your Word says in Deuteronomy 8:18, “But remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.” (NIV) In Jesus’ Name, Amen…..
