We ask for prayers first for our Mother Earth and our sacred water which is our life blood. We ask for prayers for a cessation to the raping, murdering and killing of our mother by a “wendigo spirit” of greed and corruption which is manifesting itself in the development of an oil pipeline. This pipeline will carry tar sands oil through sacred water, wetlands, wild rice beds and forests to increase the profits of a Canadian corporation. 

We ask for prayers for the Water Protectors as they risk their lives and their freedom by standing up to protect our Mother Earth and all of creation threatened by the black snake and the poison it carries. We ask for prayers for allies and friends to take a stand in a good way for our Mother Earth under the leadership of the Indigenous people of Turtle Island.
