MLA Mike Ellis, Calgary-West

Father we lift up Mr. Ellis to you in prayer. We pray Jeremiah 29:11 as a foundational prayer for the enormous responsibility of Associate Minister of Mental Health and Addictions. “For I know the plans I have for you, ‘declares the LORD’, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” May God’s spoken word create life, hope and a future for all dealing with mental health issues and addictions here in Calgary and in our Province of Alberta. Father may you guide, direct and give Mr. Ellis much wisdom for his job responsibilities. We pray blessing and protection over Mr. Ellis, his wife Hollie and children.In Jesus’ mighty name, Amen!
