A prayer for the new year

 

O Great Spirit,

whose voice I hear in the winds

and whose breath gives life to all the world,

hear me.

I am small and weak.

I need your strength and wisdom.

 

Let me walk in beauty

and let my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunset.

Make my hands respect the things you have made

and my ears grow sharp to hear your voice.

 

Make we wise so that I may understand the things

you have taught my people.

Let me learn the lessons you have hidden

in every leaf and rock.

I seek strength not to be greater than my brother or sister

but to fight my greatest enemy, myself.

Make me always ready

to come to you with clean hands and straight eyes

So when life fades as the fading sunset

my spirit may come to you without shame.

-Chief Yellow Lark

May your every prayer be formed in the fire of your heart, and rise through your throat, to be uttered from honest lips.

May your deepest desires be ignited, patterns transformed, hurts healed, prayers answered.

There is no better day than today, to become who you already are.

HAPPY NEW YEAR.

OM. AMEN. HALLELUJAH.
