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.
