A Call for Prayer from the National Indigenous Bishop and the Primate of the Anglican Church of Canada

We call the Church to pray for Standing Rock, for Good Minds to prevail and for peaceful settlement. We also call the Church to pray for water, that is taken for granted in many of our communities but good water is getting scarce in our communities. We call upon the Church to pray for our governments, both Indigenous and Settler, that they may work together to protect our fragile Mother Earth. Flowing waters are the arteries of our Creator, precious and life giving. Without water, there is no life here on Mother Earth. Pray that our Creator, God, will help us to live in balance and harmony with each other and with Earth, Fire, Air and Water.

Nigel Rowley, an Anglican, married his Danish betrothed, Mikel Lindbæk, in the Lutheran cathedral church of Copenhagen, the Church of Our Lady.
