While cleaning the house, on a random winter day, you could find that something thought to be lost forever.
Prayer to the Great Spirit
O Great Spirit,
Whose voice we hear in the wind,
And whose breath gives life to all the world,
Hear us, we come to you as one of your many children.
We are small and weak.
We need your strength and wisdom.
May we walk in beauty and make my eyes ever behold
The red and purple sunset.
Make our hands respect the things you have made
And our ears sharp to hear your voice.
Make us wise that we may understand
The things you have taught our people.
Let us learn the lesson you have hidden
In every leaf and rock.
We seek strength,
Not to be greater than our brothers/sisters,
But to fight our greatest enemy – Ourselves.
To come to you with clean hands and straight eyes,
So when life fades,
As the sunset
Our spirit may come to you without shame.
