For: Garnet Angeconeb
Creator, we give you thanks for the witness and courage of Garnet Anjeconeb and for all survivors of residential schools and their families. Send generous gifts of healing to all who experienced cultural, physical or sexual abuse at residential schools. Send your Spirit to move among all peoples in Canada to help build bridges of right and renewed relationship. Stir our hearts to open our eyes and ears and souls that we may have the courage to speak truth, the patience to listen, the wisdom to confess, and the humility to show respect. Show us a vision of a better future and a healing journey that will bring us to true community. Amen.
Prayer by the Rev. Susan C. Johnson, National Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada
