Prayers for Peacemakers, July 13, 2016
Give thanks that the Mennonite Church Canada has repudiated the Doctrine of Discovery, a philosophical and legal framework dating back to
the fifteenth century that gives “Christian governments” the legal right to seize indigenous
lands and dominate Indigenous people.
Pray that Mennonites view this as a first step in a restorative process
with First Nations in Canada.

|O LORD, who may abide in your tent? Who may dwell on your holy hill?
Those who walk blamelessly, and do what is right, and speak the truth from their heart;
who do not slander with their tongue, and do no evil to their friends, nor take up a reproach against their neighbors;
in whose eyes the wicked are despised, but who honor those who fear the LORD; who stand by their oath even to their hurt Psalm 15:1-4
