Prayers for Peacemakers,  August 24, 2016  Indigenous Peoples’ Solidarity

Pray for the 3,000 indigenous protectors of the land and
water at encampments in North Dakota who are preventing the construction of the
Dakota Access Pipeline.  The North Dakota
Homeland Security Director has cut off their access to drinking water today. Pray
that the media will cover their courageous nonviolent witness and that people
will respond to their call to stand in solidarity with them.

Be appalled, O heavens, at this, be shocked, be utterly desolate, says the LORD,

for my people have committed two evils: they have forsaken me, the fountain of living water, and dug out cisterns for themselves,
 cracked cisterns that can hold no water. Jeremiah 2:12-13
