Prayers for Peacemakers December 9, 2016


Pray with
 the water protectors at Oceti Sakowin camp as they nonviolently stand for our water, our earth, and our great grandchildren. Give thanks for their victories and steadfastness so far, and pray for them as they continue to build and develop their anti-colonial camp despite the frigid winter.

About CPT

Partnering with nonviolent movements around the world, CPT seeks to embody an inclusive, ecumenical and diverse community of God's love.  We believe we can transform war and occupation, our own lives, and the wider Christian world through:

  • the nonviolent power of God's truth
  • partnership with local peacemakers
  • bold action

CPT places teams at the invitation of local peacemaking communities that are confronting situations of lethal conflict.  These teams seek to follow God's Spirit as it works through local peacemakers who risk injury and death by waging nonviolent direct action to confront systems of violence and oppression. 

CPT understands violence to be rooted in systemic structures of oppression. We are committed to undoing oppressions, starting within our own lives and in the practices of our organization.
