“Hide your face from my sins,
and blot out all my iniquities.
Create in me a clean heart, O God,
and renew a right spirit within me.” Psalms 51:9-10
Father God, Old Colorado City was built on an Indian crossroad, a natural boundary between the Sioux, Arapahos and Cheyenne’s of the Great Plains, and their historic enemies, the Utes of the mountain. We pray for healing of the land along this crossroads; we also ask for restoration and grace to forgive for the descendants of the settlers who happened to be in the way when differences were settled. We honor the native peoples of our region and ask that your spirit of forgiveness and redemption will be working between them and those who populated this area after them.
