A Prayer For Strength
Great Spirit, whose voice is on the wind, hear me. Let me grow in strength and knowledge.
Make me ever behold the red and purple sunset. May my hands respect the things you have given me.
Teach me the secrets hidden under every leaf and stone, as you have taught people for ages past.
Let me use my strength, not to be greater than my brother, but to fight my greatest enemy – myself.
Let me always come before you with clean hands and an open heart, that as my Earthly span fades like the sunset, my Spirit shall return to you without shame.
This is an truncated version of a Sioux prayer I found in my father’s automatic writings.
