Great Creator Spirit,
We gather together from across these lands now called Australia.
We acknowledge you as the Creator of all things.
We humble ourselves before you in prayer.
We have answered your call to prayer and so we pray:
For your forgiveness – as we acknowledge the lack
of relationship between Aboriginal and non Aboriginal peoples
For your grace – as we acknowledge the times we
allow our differences to separate us
For your courage – as we acknowledge ignorance,
lack of education, lack of will, and racism that
keeps us from the truth
You are a God of love, and so we come together in community, at a time of
division in the nation of Australia, seeking to be your hands and feet, so that
through you, we can Change The Heart of Australia, to see healing and hope
for all peoples.
We long for the Truth to set us free.
Lord, Hear our prayer.
