Noon Prayer in Solidarity with the People of Standing Rock

Today I am joining in prayer with other clergy in solidarity with the people of Standing Rock. Throughout the day I will post what I am praying.


Psalm 87:1,7

“Restore our fortunes, O Lord, like the watercourses in the Negeb.” Psalm 126:4

Noon Prayer

For wisdom and courage for the Standing Rock Sioux tribe,

its Chairman David Archambault and

the Native American nations who in their witness

shine light on the critical need for the stewardship

and protection of our endangered earth;

for a willingness on the part of all other people to

refrain from destruction and listen respectfully

to the concern and ancient wisdom of the Standing Rock Sioux tribe.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.
