To the Boushie family, In light of the recent events we wish to extend our heartfelt support to you and your family. Although a province divides us we are still all part of a treaty family - Treaty Six. We want to extend a prayer from our humble inner city agency to you.
We ask Creators for blessings for your heart for it must be so full listening to the conversations that reach across Canada. We ask for Creators compassion for the moment upon waking each day not just with your loss but the voices that won’t be still. We ask Creator to embrace you with a greater love than what you are being shown and hear, daily…through media, and legislation.
We ask for Creators guidance for your decisions in light of the many made for you and about you. We ask for your homeland to embrace your journey as you make change for every single one of us. We pray for your minds, hearts, spirits to know you are loved from us who can only imagine where you stand. We also ask for your protection where you travel, where you rest, eat and converse. We stand with you in prayer.
