|Prayer to Great Spirit
O' Great Spirit:
Let me always remember,
how soft and damp the grass feels beneath my feet.
Let me greet with respect the elder when we meet.
Let me see you in the things I find wrong.
Let me hear you in the chant of the warrior's song.
Let my touch be gentle when I strike out.
Let my voice be a whisper when I really want to shout.
Let me step lightly when the going is tough.
Let me ride the waves when the water is rough.
Let me remember you are always there.
Then, Great Spirit, I will not despair.

|Great Spirit, protect and direct me
May your Love and Compassion speak to my mind and heart
Make me an instrument of your healing powers
So that I am a source of peace and happiness in the world
Open the path before me and maximize my good
So that all beings may benefit and be blessed.
