Today we lift up in prayer our brother, Mr. Mike Ellis; who is serving as MLA for Calgary-West. We pray especially for his continued fight against the tragic misuse of prescription drugs. We ask that you continue to encourage him with great ideas. We echo the words which you spoke in Jeremiah 33:6, “Nevertheless, I will bring health and healing to it; I will heal my people and will let them enjoy abundant peace and security.” (NIV) We pray this in the powerful name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
