Use him and his vast knowledge and experience in the field of politics and education to further your kingdom. Bless David with strength, humility and grace in his daily life. Help him to use his skills and talents for the benefit of everyone in the province of Alberta. Keep David and his family safe and healthy this year. In Jesus name I pray, amen.
