TRC Call to Prayer

Father God,

We pray for open hands and willing hearts as records relevant to the history and legacy of the residential school system are collected.  We pray that those collecting the records will understand the significance of the work they are doing.  Please ensure all voices will be heard and preserved, so that the full story will be remembered and that a similar atrocity will never occur again.       Amen
Context:   TRC Call to Action #77
