An invitation to prayer

August 2023

Dear Lord

We invite all Australians to join us, their Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Brothers and Sisters in prayer.

At the heart of the upcoming Voice to Parliament Referendum is the recognition of Aboriginal And Torres Strait Islander Peoples, the world's oldest continuing culture, in the Australian Constitution. 

As Christians, we have a responsibility to listen to the voices of First Australians and to work towards a more just and equitable society. 

The Voice to Parliament Referendum provides us with a unique opportunity to come together as a community and draw upon our faith and moral grounding to make an informed decision. 

As a community let us keep the process in prayer. 

Dear Lord

We invite all Australians to join us, their Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Brothers and Sisters in prayer.

We pray for a bright and just shared future for all who call Australia home.

We ask that Your grace of acceptance and compassion will guide us.

Let the Creator Spirit lead our journey with the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples of this land.

May we share Your Spirit more deeply; celebrate the gifts You have given us.

Help us appreciate true harmony and peace just as our Old People did;

Keep us strong, make us resilient and remember us in this time.

Now is an opportunity to change our Nation’s history for the better.

Walk with us as we write a new chapter together and may we be one in Your love.

Amen.
