in Solidarity with Indigenous Peoples (December 12)
O God, Great Spirit
and Faithful Creator,
with humility, we your children
acknowledge the relationship
of all living things -
for this we thank You,
we praise You, and
we worship You

We call on You,
Great Mystery,
the Word made Flesh
- our teacher, prophet and brother -
to open our hearts to
all our brothers and sisters,
and with them to grow in the
wisdom, honesty, courage, and respectfulness shown
in the Sacred Teachings
Give us the honesty to recognize that the Earth provides us with life-sustaining breath, nourishment, and healing, and give us the strength to proclaim by our words and actions that the Earth is a blessing for all peoples
May we avoid the sins of exploitive
personal power and profit
May we seek the righteous way of
love, service, and healing
in all things

Father, as we walk our journey on this Earth, may Your life-giving Spirit protect and guide us with Your Wisdom so that we might live in right relationship and harmony with all humanity
May we pass on to future
generations this Earth
and all Your gifts
as You have provided them to us
