O Great Spirit

O Great Spirit
Whose voice I hear in the wind.
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.
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 under every leaf and rock.

~ Native American Prayer (origin unknown)
