A Prayer for Our Recognition of  Reconciliation with Aboriginals 

God of many names, we gather here as a praying people. You call us to draw wide the circle of justice and inclusiveness. Help us to find ways to make amends for the hate, hurtfulness, and persecution of times past. Prevent us from being paralyzed by guilt for the actions of ancestors who believed that they were acting correctly, but who caused great hurt, pain, and devastation to the First Peoples of this land.Today we know these actions violate your ideals of love and compassion. Help us discern the difference between your ways and our ways. Give us the courage to disagree with popular opinion when it contradicts your concepts of love, mercy, and inclusiveness. Guide us, in your wisdom, to ways of healing and of reconciliation. Amen
