Father, we ask for wisdom for Tany to effect positive change in our government. May his commitment to renew the Alberta Advantage always be at the forefront of his mind. Give him the strategies he needs to invest in and empower Alberta’s citizens. May he be able to discern the tactics of the enemy, and not be pulled into that power struggle so alive in the political arena. May he not be discouraged, but be able to retain his positive outlook and hope for the future of Alberta and continue to work tirelessly in that regard for the good of all. Amen…….
