Father today we bring our Premier Jason Kenney before your throne of grace and we ask that you bless him as he leads our province through these challenging times. Lord give him great wisdom and grace in all that he does. We are thankful for his willingness to lead us through these last months for the good of all Albertans and we pray you will use him for your glory. In Your powerful name. Amen.
