MLA Mark Smith, Drayton Valley-Devon

Thank you Lord for
Mark. We are thankful for the journey that you have led him on that has brought
him to this point. Looking at his experience thus far, it’s clear You prepared
him for this role. Thank you for being faithful to us, and equipping us for the
roles You call us to. We pray you would use him to bless and encourage others.
Use him to shape culture. Provide for him and his family. And if there is any
discouragement that he faces today, that you would speak into his heart words
of affirmation and encouragement. Amen
