Black Elk ( 1863-1950 )

from Beliefnet.com
Prayer of the Day

GREAT SPIRIT, YOU ARE THE LIFE OF THINGS

Grandfather, Great Spirit, once more behold me on earth

and lean to hear my feeble voice. You lived first, and you

are older than all need, older than all prayer. All things

belong to you- the two-legged, the four-legged, the wings

of the air, and all green things that live.

You have set the powers of the four quarters of the earth

to cross each other. You have made me cross the good

road and the road of difficulties, and where they cross,

the place is holy. Day in, day out, forevermore, you

are the life of things.

Black Elk
