I placed this prayer in my Prayer Journal in 1983.
I thought you would enjoy this beautiful Native American Prayer like I do.
It was written by Tom White Cloud (Objibwe).
It speaks to my heart.
Blessings, love, and hugs,
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 and wisdom.
Let me walk in beauty, and make my eyes ever behold the 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.
