Heavenly Father, we thank you for MLA Pat Rehn today. We thank you for his service to the people of Lesser Slave Lake. We ask that you would guide him in all that he does, and that you would show him the path he should take in all situations. Bless him and his family today. May they know your love, peace, and grace, and may they be surrounded by supportive, loving friends. We pray this in Jesus’ name. Amen.
