Happy Thanksgiving! This is a favorite prayer of mine and perfect for Thanksgiving.

Let Me Walk in Beauty

-Chief Yellow Lark

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 thing you have made

And my ears grow sharp to hear your voice.

 

Make me 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.
