Native American Prayer
From One of Our Native American Family Members
O' GREAT SPIRIT
Whose voice we hear in the winds
And whose Breath gives life to all the world, hear us.
We are small and weak. We need Your Strength and Wisdom.
LET US WALK IN BEAUTY, and make our eyes
ever behold the red and purple sunset.
MAKE OUR HANDS respect the things you have made
and our ears sharp to hear Your voice.
MAKE US WISE SO that we may understand
the things you have taught our people.
LET US LEARN the lessons You have hidden
in every leaf and rock.
WE SEEK STRENGTH, not to be greater than our
brother, but to fight our greatest enemy, ourselves.
MAKE US ALWAYS READY to come to you with
clean hands and straight eyes.
SO WHEN LIFE FADES, as the fading sunset,
our spirit may come to you without shame.
In love and light.
Carol and Rory
