Join us today, Dec 4th, for a Global Synchronized Prayer with Standing Rock.
Thousands will pray around the camp's sacred fire joined by over 72,000 of you from around the world in over 40+ countries! United in solidarity.
Today at 10:00am CST at the central Sacred Fire that has been burning continuously since the camp started Chief Arvol Looking Horse, 19th generation holder of the White Buffalo Calf pipe, will lead interfaith prayers alongside 50+ spiritual leaders who have flown in from all over the world.
They will then walk together to the front lines where the violent attacks occurred only days ago and at 2:00 pm CST hold another interfaith prayer session which will be shared with you via a facebook livestream at this link and also on our broadcast website.
Starting at 10:00am CST there will be guided prayers available here: www.praywithstandingrock.com/broadcast
You are welcome to listen to the prayer and then pray/meditate in your own way.
We are honored to share that our partner organization United Religions Initiative has sent a delegation to Standing Rock that arrived two days ago which includes representatives from 32 different faiths.
Along with nearly 1,000 prayers from 54 countries from the URI global interfaith community, the delegation will also bring their version of sacred waters to Standing Rock: two vials of water, that have been collected from 162 sacred sites worldwide.
This project has been 10 years in the making, and includes water from the Nile, the Ganges, the Amazon, even Joan of Arc's well in France. This sacred water will be presented to the Standing Rock Tribal Council for all the water protectors gathered. Together our vibration will lift the spirits of those Protecting the Water while inviting the people looking down from the other side of the razor wire to pray with the world.
You may join us by finding a local event near you, tuning in to the broadcast through your computer or smartphone, or pray/meditate in your own way.
At the Oceti Sakowin Camp at Standing Rock our team is meeting with the tribal council, indigenous youth representative groups, and dozens of partner organizations on a daily basis to ensure our Global Synchronized Prayer is in collaboration with, and approved by the Tribal Council.
