Father, we lift up Mr. van Dijken to You. May You bless him as he serves his community and Alberta. As his roots are farming and founding/working on several boards linked directly to farming, he would understand the principle of sowing and reaping. Father, as he sows diligently into his community, may he reap bountifully while serving Alberta. We pray he will be a strong voice for his community and the Legislature, bringing integrity, hard work ethics and good morals to the table. We pray protection over him and his spouse Barb. In Jesus name, we pray, Amen…..
