TRC Call to Prayer

Father God,

As the Canadian Association of Archivists undertakes a national review of policies and best practices, we ask that they will work in collaboration with Aboriginal people.  Please provide a good team of people with a common purpose and intent to accurately gather all archives needed to capture a full picture of what has been occurring in the past and what changes need to be made.  We pray that key documents referring to practices and policies will be readily accessible, and that a framework for Canadian archives will be developed that is in compliance with the UNDRIP so that truth and reconciliation can occur.     Amen     Context:   TRC Call to Action #70
