Four Corners Native American Ministry

Native American Awareness Sunday provides a prayerful opportunity for repentance and reconciliation between indigenous and immigrant peoples:

  • Pray for non-Native partners and supporters, recognizing that we are all one body, all brothers and sisters in our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Cor. 12; 12-27, Eph 4:4-6, Gal 3:28)
  • Pray for God's forgiveness- and especially for the desire to forgive others who "have trespassed against us." (Matt 6:12-15, Luke 11:3)
  • Pray for the Navajo Nation - and for all Native people, tribes and nations in North America (Psalm 67:4).
  • Pray for its leaders, for its women and children. Pray for good relations between native peoples. Pray for economic and social well-being.
  • Pray for other Native American ministries on the Navajo Nation and for other Native American ministries in the United Methodist Church throughout the country. (Mark 12:28-34)
