Prayers for Peacemakers. 27 April 2017

Today let us lift in our prayers those who “pray with
their feet” and advocate for the rights of the Indigenous peoples. On 23
April, a group of mainly Christians has set out on a 600 km (around 375 miles)
long pilgrimage through the Canadian province of Ontario. CPT Indigenous

Let us pray that the eyes, ears and hearts of lawmakers and
settlers of Canada and around the world be opened and embrace that to which God
calls us: truth, reconciliation and justice.
