    O Great Spirit
    Whose voice I hear in the winds,
    And whose breath gives life to all the world,hear me.
    I am small & weak.I need your strength & wisdom.

    Let me walk in beauty,
    and makes my eyes ever behold the red and the purple sunset
    Make my hands respect the things I 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 & every rock.
    I seek strength,not to be greater than my brother,but to fight my own 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.
