As we gather today, we pray that our workplaces may be places in which the First Peoples of Australia are welcomed and deeply respected.


May the Elders past and present be blessed and honoured.

May the sacred land be always etched into our hearts and our history.

We recognise the past and present with both sadness and hope.

With God’s help we look forward to building a future together based on justice, faith and respect.


May all of us strive to listen and learn from each other as we walk together in a spirit of faith and reconciliation.

Give us willing feet and gentle hands.

Bless us with listening ears

and searching eyes.

Endow us with understanding minds.

Ordain us with compassionate hearts.

In our acts and in our words

Make us vessels of your mercy

To reach out to the broken

On behalf of the Father

Who wipes away our debts,

As lovingly as he wipes away our tears

And calls his children home.

Help us lift your people in body and spirit.

And so make every year a year of mercy.

Amen
