A Native American Prayer
O' Great Spirit Whose voice I hear in the winds,
And Whose breath gives life to all the world,
hear me! I am small and weak,I need your strength
Let me walk in beauty, and make my eyes ever behold
the red purple sunset.
Make my hands respect the things you have made and
my ears sharp to hear your voice.
Make me wise so that I may understand the things
You have taught my people.
Let me learn the lessons You have hidden in every
leaf and rock.
I seek strength not to be greater than my brother,
but to fight my greatest enemy.. myself.
Make me always ready to come to You with clean
hands and straight eyes,
So when life fades,as the fading sunset, my
spirit may come to you without shame.
O Great Spirit help me always to speak
the truth quietly,
To listen with an open mind when others speak
and to remember the peace that may be found
