Holy Father, God of Love You are the Creator of this land and of all good things.
We acknowledge the pain and shame of our history and the suffering of our peoples, and we ask your forgiveness.
We thank you for the survival of indigenous cultures.
Our hope is in you because you gave your Son Jesus to reconcile the world to you.
Give us the courage to accept the realities of our history so that we may build a better future for our nation.
Teach us to respect all cultures
Teach us to care for our land and waters
Help us to share justly the resources of this land.
Help us to bring about spiritual and social change to improve the quality of life for all groups in our communities, especially the disadvantaged.
Help young people to find true dignity and self-esteem by your Spirit.
May your power and love be the foundations on which we build our families, our communities and our nation. - Wontulp-Bi-Buya
