Close Prayer


I Come before you in a humble manner
And I offer you this sacred pipe
With tears in my eyes and an ancient song from
My heart I pray.

T o the four powers of creation,
To the Grandfather Sun,
To the Grandmother moon,
To the mother Earth, and to my Ancestors.

I pray for my relations in nature
All those who walk, crawl, fly and swim,
Seen and unseen,
To the good spirits that exist in every
part of Creation.

I ask that you bless our elders and children,
Families and friends,
And brothers and sisters who are in Prison.
I pray for the ones who are sick on drugs and
Alcohol and for those who are now homeless
and forlorn. I also pray for peace among the
races of human kind.

May there be good health and healing
for this Earth,
May there be Beauty above me,
May there be Beauty below me,
May there be Beauty in me,
May there be Beauty all around me,
I ask that this world be filled with Peace, Love,
And Beauty.

The Native American Prayer

Oh, Great Spirit,
whose voice I hear in the winds,
and whose breath gives life to all the world
~hear me~
I come before you, one of your children.
I am small and weak.
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,
my ears sharp to hear your voice.
Make me wise, so that I may know the things
you have taught my People, the lesson you
have hidden in every leaf and rock.
I seek strength not to be superior to my brothers,
but to be able to fight my greatest enemy,
Make me ever ready to come to you,
with clean hands and straight eyes,
so when life fades as a fading sunset,
my spritit may come to you
~without shame~
