Indian Prayer

From (N.A.I.G.S.O.) The Native American Indian General Service Office of Alcoholics Anonymous Web Site.

Oh Great Spirit 
Whose Voice I Hear in the wind. 
Whose breath gives life to the world. 
Hear me. 
I come to you as one of your many children. 
I am small and weak, 
I need your strength and wisdom; 
May I walk in beauty. 
Make my eyes behold the red and purple sunset; 
Make my hands respect the things that you 
have made, 
And my ears sharp to hear your voice. 
Make me wise so that I may know the things 
That you have taught your children; 
The lessons that you have hidden in 
every leaf and rock. 
Make me strong . . . not to be superior to my 
brothers but to be able to fight my greatest enemy. . .myself.
Make me ever ready to come to you with 
straight eyes so that 
When life fades as the faded sunset,
My spirit will come to you without shame.
