Prayers for Peacemakers, September 9, 2015

Give thanks that the Aamjiwnaang First Nation is speaking
out about the damage that “Chemical Valley” in the Sarnia area is doing to its
nation as well as to the other living creatures.  Christian Peacemaker Teams recently
participated in a “Toxic Tour” as an act of solidarity with the Aamjiwnaang
people.   Like ninety other First Nations in Canada, including Grassy Narrows, Aamjiwnaang First Nation is unable to
drink the water on its land.

 *Epixel for Sunday, September 12, 2015 
The snares of death encompassed me; the pangs of Sheol laid hold on me; I suffered distress and anguish.
Then I called on the name of the LORD: “O LORD, I pray, save my life!” Psalms 116: 3-4
