Native American Prayer:
Oh Great Spirit,
Whose voice I hear in the winds,
And whose breath gives life to all the world,
I am small and weak,
I need your strength and wisdom.
Let me walk in beauty, and make my eyes
ever behold the red and 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
►Pueblo Indian Prayer:
Hold on to what is good, even if it’s a handful of earth…
Hold on to what you believe, even if it’s a tree that stands by itself…
Hold on to what you must do, even if it’s a long way from here…
Hold on to your life, even if it’s easier to let go….
Hold on to my hand, even if I’ve gone away from you.
