Afternoon 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 98

“The Lord made streams come out of the rock, and caused waters to flow down like rivers.” Psalm 78:16

Afternoon Prayer

For the perseverance of what is good and true and sustainable;

for conversations and negotiations that must occur for treaties to be honored;

for those coming with different perspectives

to uphold respect for the other;

for wisdom and vision for the people working on the legal arguments

for the prevention of endangering rivers and

in honoring the sovereignty of Native peoples.

Lord, in your mercy, hear our prayer.


  1. Bless you for doing this…
