Native Spirituality

Oh Great Spirit whose voice I hear in the winds
Each day I wake up; I pray to my Creator
For good things
I thank him for the four-legged,
The two-legged, the things that fly,
And the things that swim.
I thank those that gave up their lives, so
That I could eat today
I thank Mother Earth for growing the
Vegetable, fruits, and medicines
These things I use everyday.
I thank the Creator for my Family,
for without them I would not be here
I thank him for my Sisters, otherwise
I would be lonely.
I thank him for the positive and the negative
things that happen during the day, for
these are not to hurt me, but to help me learn
I thank the Creator for all the good things
in the world.
For the world is my teacher and my playground
Everything here is for my pleasure
If I do not see the beauty in this, then the
fault is me.
At the end of my prayers, I am pleased with myself.
For I am ready for this day.
