National Indigenous Peoples Day

Creator God,
Today we give thanks and respect, to your people,
Who first occupied your beautiful land, on which we live.

May we learn to live as they do,
Thankful for the great gifts you have provided,
And honouring all living beings.

Open our eyes,
To embrace all your people,
As our brothers and sisters.

Grow our relationships,
That together we may live,
At one with each other and the land.

Heal our hearts,
So that we may heal the hurts of the past,
And be strengthened in our journey to reconciliation.

We ask this in your name.
