Praying through the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples
This Lent we invite you to enter into the themes of this prayer guide in the hopes that our commitment to the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples as a framework for reconciliation would re-shape us as people of faith. Allow these prayers and exercises to come into dialogue with news you are hearing on these topics.
Every article in this declaration comes from a time when a right has been violated or outright denied to Indigenous peoples. As you reflect on these articles, let that sink in: for each article there is a contemporary example of violation of that right. What is our call as Christians as we bear witness to such profound brokenness of relationships and denial of justice?
Please take the time this Lenten season to pray. Pray for understanding, lament what is broken, and ask for wisdom and courage to change the systems that deny Indigenous rights—rights that are still out of reach.
