May you find yourself in the world…and may you enjoy the company!
Sent to me from Red Earth!
Another true spirtual friend.


Living in the city, I forget about Stars,
not to mention planets like Venus and Mars.
Man, in his arrogance, thinks he can outshine
the piercing light of Heaven.
The full moon and the new moon, I can't help see
as it reflects the light of the Sun to me.
In his Infinite Wisdom, Tunkasila God has shown,
though seeming hidden, I am never alone.
The Light of the World is always there.
I have access to Him through faith and prayer.
So when I worry and start to doubt,
I'll pause for a moment to look about.
Bask in the radiance and beauty on high.
Great lessons are taught by the evening sky.
Angel

Thank you Sandy,
I love Native American prayers and their wisdom.
Here is another Native American prayer that a friend gave me:

Peace...comes within the souls of
men when they realze their relationship,
their oneness, with the universere and
all its powers, and when they realize
that at the center of the Universe dwells
Wakan-Tanka, and that this center is really
everywhere, it is within each of us.

This is really beautiful Sandy! Thank you ever so much for sharing this. It is sort of just what I was needing to hear. Yes

I had a magical meeting with Jim Bluehorse a few days ago, he had some wisdom from his grandfather the medicine man.. meeting him was great medicine!

Thanks for this beautiful prayer. You are an angel for sharing it! Angel

Love n light, Teo Smile Smile

You can't force peace, only lead by example
O our Mother the Earth,
O our Father the Sky,
Your children are we, and
with tired backs.
We bring you the gifts that you love.
Then weave for us a garment of brightness;
May the warp be the white light of morning,
May the weft be the red light of evening,
May the fringes be the falling rain,
May the border be the standing rainbow.
Thus weave for us a garment of brightness
That we may walk fittingly where birds sing,
that we may walk fittingly
where the grass is green,
O our Mother the Earth,
O our Father the Sky.

...The water's murmur is the voice of your
great-great- grandmother.
The rivers are our brothers.
They quench our thirst.
They carry our canoes and feed our children.
You must give to the rivers the kindness you
would give to any brother.

Great Spirit, God, Creator of All

Great Spirit, God, Creator of All
I welcome You into my heart, mind, body and soul
There is always room for You here.
Grant me the wisdom to heed my inner voice
And the strength to stay grounded while I sing my sacred song.
Guide me down my chosen path and give me the courage to pursue
what is available to me.
I am thankful for the lessons and grateful for my struggles;
I have not forgotten what has brought me to where I am today.
Open my heart to the healing wholeness of nature;
We are all related, and through this I will find serenity.
Great Spirit, God, Creator of All
Cleanse my spirit and wash my soul.
There is always room for You here.

Native American Prayer for Peace


O Great Spirit of our
Ancestors, I raise
my pipe to you.
To your messengers the four winds, and
to Mother Earth who provides
for your children.
Give us the wisdom to teach our children
to love, to respect, and to be kind to each
other so that they may grow
with peace in mind.
Let us learn to share all good things that
you provide for us on this Earth.

Love to all,
Sandy
For a few days there I couldn't reply. Everything showed up really really tiny and I kept getting error messages!
Woman's Prayer


Great Spirit, I am Mother.
I was made by You so that the image of Your love
Could be brought into existence.
May I always carry with me
The sacredness of this honour.

Creator, I am Daughter.
I am the learner of the Traditions.
May I carry them forward
So that the Elders and Ancestors
Will be remembered for all time.

Maker-Of-All-Things, I am Sister.
Through me, may my brothers be shown
The manner in which I am to be respected.
May I join with my sisters in strength and power as a Healing Sheild
So that they will no longer bear the stain of abuse.

Niskam, I am Committed Partner:
One who shares her spirit,
But is wise to remember never to give it away,
Lest it become lost,
And the two become less than one.

I am Woman.
Hear me.
Welal'in.
Ta'ho!

Earth Teach Me to Remember
by John Yellow Lark



Earth teach me stillness

as the grasses are stilled with light.

Earth teach me suffering

as old stones suffer with memory.

Earth teach me humility

as blossoms are humble with beginning.

Earth Teach me caring

as the mother who secures her young.

Earth teach me courage

as the tree which stands alone.

Earth teach me limitation

as the ant which crawls on the ground.

Earth teach me freedom

as the eagle which soars in the sky.

Earth teach me resignation

as the leaves which die in the fall.

Earth teach me regeneration

as the seed which rises in the spring.

Earth teach me to forget myself

as melted snow forgets its life.

Earth teach me to remember kindness

as dry fields weep in the rain.



Ute, North American
I love this thread as well.
Thank you dear Sandy for starting it.

**************************************

Ojibwa Prayer


Oh Great Spirit, whose voice I hear in the winds

And whose breath gives life to everyone,

Hear me.

I come to you as one of your many children;

I am weakÖI am smallÖI need your wisdom and your strength.

Let me walk in beauty, and make my eyes ever

behold the red and purple sunsets.

Make my hands respect the things you have made,

and make my ears sharp so I may hear your voice.

Make me wise, so that I may understand what you

have taught my people and

The lessons you have hidden in each leaf

and each rock.

I ask for wisdom and strength,

Not to be superior to my brothers, but to be able

to fight my greatest enemy, myself.

Make me ever ready to come before you with

clean hands and a straight eye,

So as life fades away as a fading sunset,

My spirit may come to you without shame.

Dear Sandy,
I love Native American prayers and wisdom as well.

Hear Me
Hear me, four quarters of the world-- a relative I am! Give me the strength to walk the soft earth. Give me the eyes to see and the strength to understand, that I may be like you. With your power only can I face the winds. Great Spirit...all over the earth the faces of living things are all alike. With tenderness have these come up out of the ground. Look upon these faces of children without number and with children in their arms, that they may face the winds and walk the good road to the day of quiet. This is my prayer' hear me!

Great Spirit Prayer


"Oh, Great Spirit, whose voice I hear in the wind,

Whose breath gives life to all the world.

Hear me; 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.

Help me to remain calm and strong in the face of all that comes towards me.

Let me learn the lessons you have hidden in every leaf and rock.

Help me seek pure thoughts and act with the intention of helping others.

Help me find compassion without empathy overwhelming me.

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.
