Prayer following Kamloops Residential School Discovery – June 2021

 
Wise and loving God, you had created, and are still creating a world that is rich with difference and diversity.
 
You have created all people in your image, each expressing their being and living their life in valid, special relationship with you. For all this we give you praise.
 
How difficult it has been O God, for us to be humble and caring. The call to go out into the nations and bring the good news has so often been compromised by the fear of what we do not understand, and the fear of what we must let go of.
 
We confess that we can lapse into stereotypes, fear, suspicion of our indigenous neighbours. There is brokenness between us and your children.
 
We too easily say, “get over it”, and don’t try to understand that Canada- our society, our churches tried for generations to “kill the Indian in the child by removing children from the influence of their parents, their communities, and their cultures. The scars that resulted are real still today, and our sin remains, being unearthed before us.
 
We confess this generational and corporate sin today. We also confess historical acts of injustice and oppression perpetuated not only against Aboriginal communities, but also against Black and various Asian Communities. For the times we have failed to recognize racism in ourselves, our church, in our society, and the times we have failed to take action, Forgive us.
 
For our complicity in the systems of privilege and power over those who skin colour, culture, language or faith differs from the majority, even today, Forgive us.
 
Grant us courage not to let a racist joke pass in our hearing, Grant us commitment to insist on equal treatment of all persons and groups including ourselves if oppressed, even at the risk of being unpopular or misunderstood.
 
Grant us patience in enduring periods of non-action, presence in resisting the evil of radical oppression, and faithfulness in working toward racial justice among your people, in the church, and in the world: And grant us humility and wisdom to discern when it is that your Spirit must come to accomplish that which human beings and groups cannot.
 
We pray in the name of Jesus, Himself the one who is the way, the truth and the life.
 
AMEN
