Universal Prayer

O Great Spirit Whose voice I hear in the winds
Whose breath gives life to the world...
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 ever 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
And 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,
My spirit will come to You
Without shame.
