UTTC to host community-wide prayer for peace
BISMARCK (UTN) – United Tribes Technical College invites the area public to a “Prayer for Peace” gathering Friday, November 4 at 5 p.m. in the multi-purpose room of the college’s wellness center.
The event is an opportunity for Native and non-Native people to unite in prayer for a peaceful resolution to events associated with the pipeline controversy at Standing Rock. Citizens of all backgrounds and faiths are welcome.
Participants are invited to take-in a free meal following the event, and to a screening of the documentary “Awakened: The Spiritual Destiny of the First Americans.
Awakened features Native American faith leaders from throughout Indian Country who address the belief that First Nation’s people are destined to lead the way to a ‘Last Great Awakening.’
"You, as Indians, are a sleeping giant,” said evangelist Billy Graham, who is also seen in the documentary. “The original American, you are now awakening. Just around the corner, you may become a spiritual superpower in this country that could change not only America, but the world.”
