This prayer was offered by the North America
First Nations leaders when 1000 gathered in D.C.
“We the people, the Host people of this Great Nation and the original lovers of this land, stand united with one heart and mind to bring the power of forgiveness to bear. As the Host People of Turtle Island, we forgive every atrocity and broken covenant ever designed to destroy us as a race of people. We break every curse, and renounce every lie, purposed to decimate us as human beings. We forgive the government, the Church, and the educational system for the use of residential schools that attempted to destroy our culture and silence our voice as people by stealing our language.
We stand in the gap for those who are unable or unwilling to forgive, and call upon the Master of Life, to forgive us for harboring un-forgiveness, resentment, hatred, bitterness and rage; We repent of every curse spoken over America by our ancestors and we release the power of forgiveness to bring healing and the peace of Creator God to this land.
We declare and decree that our voice will no longer by silenced and that this nation and the world will hear our voice as we speak life and blessings over the Americas and the world.
We stand in faith believing that our citizenship lies in heaven, and we too, all await the return of our Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ. Being all of one mind and heart, having compassion for one another, we declare our love as brothers; not returning evil for the evil perpetuated against us, but on the contrary we choose to release a blessing, knowing that the Father of us all has called us as his children to bless and not curse, that we may inherit a blessing.
“The greatest moments of Native History may lie ahead of us
if a great spiritual renewal and awakening should take place.
The Native American has been a sleeping giant. He is awakening.
The original Americans could become the evangelists who will help win
America for Christ! Remember these forgotten people!”
