Oh, Great Spirit, whose voice I hear in the winds
Whose breath gives life to the world, hear me I come to you
As one of your many children
I am small and weak, I need your strength and wisdom
May I walk in beauty
Make my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunset
Make my hands respect the things you have made And my ears... sharp to your voice
Make me wise so that I may know the things you have taught your children
The lessons you have written in every leaf and rock make me strong!
Not to be superior to my brothers, but to fight my greatest enemy,myself!

*** A Sioux Prayer Translated by Chief Yellow Lark– 1887
