Prayers for Peacemakers, December 12, 2012

Give thanks for ten years
of perseverance of the Grassy Nations community north of Kenora, Ontario in
protecting 2,500 square miles of forest, lakes and rivers from logging. Ask for
the Spirit to stir solidarity that such protection may continue and expand.
