Prayer to Great Spirit

Great Spirit,

as I stand before You,

I humbly ask these things.


Teach me to find You

wherever I journey;

in wilderness temples,

in steel and concrete kingdoms.


Teach me to find You

in my fellow humans,

and in myself;

in laughter and in sorrow,

in every moment of every day.


Teach me to find within me

the softness of Water,

the power of Fire,

the strength of the Oak,

the magic of Twilight,

and the wisdom of the Seasons.


That I might live my life

as a bridge between Your Light

and this world of man.
