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 & rock. Help me seek pure thoughts & 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. " Native American Prayer truth,  OdiliaCarmen

Wakan Tanka Prayer

"Wakan Tanka, Great Mystery (Great Spirit), Teach me how to trust my heart, Teach me how to trust my mind, Teach me how to trust my intuition, Teach me how to trust my inner knowing, The senses of my body, The blessings of my spirit. Teach me to trust these things so that I may enter my Sacred Space and love beyond my fear and thus Walk in Balance with the passing of each glorious Sun." Native American Prayer truth,  OdiliaCarmen
