Native American Prayer Rally to Offer Forgiveness to America
Today, I have been asked to speak at a remarkable event in Washington, DC at the Washington Monument. This is an “All Tribes” gathering of Native Peoples, the original people of this land. What is so remarkable about this is that the gathering, hosted by leaders in a Tribal Council, is to give forgiveness without asking for anything in return. As a Cherokee Citizen, I am honored to participate.
Officially, it is known as All Tribes DC, a National Day of Prayer for the First Nations, on October 21 (8 am to 5 pm). This historic gathering at the Washington Monument will represent all the Native Peoples of America coming together to pray for our nation. This humbling effort of repentance has the power to heal our culture as forgiveness replaces demanding. It has the power to restore our economy as the blessings of God can be restored to America. And it has the power to defend our land as God’s hand of protection returns to our nation.
Here is an article that describes the event:
Here is a portion of the prayers that will be offered:
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 (the Earth), 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 unforgiveness, 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. … 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.
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.
Dr. Billy Graham has shared: “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!”
This event will seek the face of God, asking Him to forgive the Native Peoples as they forgive the Nation.
