A few Prayers I found I want to share, I love em

Post by SageWolf » Tue Jan 09, 2007 6:50 am

"An Indian Prayer"
My Grandfather is the Fire

My Grandmother is the Wind

The Earth is my Mother

The Great Spirit is my Father

The World stopped at my birth and laid itself at my feet

And I shall swallow the Earth whole when I die,
and the Earth and I will be one.

Hail The Great Spirit, my Father, without him no one
could exist because there would be no will to live.

Hail The Earth, my Mother, without which no food
could be grown and so cause the will to live to starve.
Hail the wind, my Grandmother, for she brings loving,
life-giving rain nourishing us as she nourishes our crops.
Hail the fire, my Grandfather, for the light, the warmth,
the comfort he brings without which we be animals, not men.

Hail my parent and grandparents without which,
not I, nor you, nor anyone else could have existed.

Life gives life which gives unto itself a promise of new life.

Hail the Great Spirit, The Earth, the Wind, the Fire
praise my parents loudly for they are your parents, too.

Oh, Great Spirit, giver of my life please accept this
humble offering of prayer, this offering of praise,
this honest reverence of my love for you.



American Indian Prayer



O Great Spirit, Whose Voice I hear in the wind, and Whose

Breath gives life to all the

world, Her me! I am small and weak: I need Your strength and

wisdom.

Let me walk in beauty, and make my eyes ever behold the red

and purple sunset.

Make my hands respect the things You have made and my ears

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 then my brother, 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, may my spirit come to You without

shame.





LAKOTA PRAYER

Wakan Tanka, Great Mystery, teach me how to trust my heart,
my mind,
my intuition,
my inner knowing,
the senses of my body,
the blessings of my spirit.
Teach me to trust these things so that I may enter my Sacred Space
and love beyond my fear, and thus Walk in Balance with the passing of each glorious Sun.





From Wakan-Tanka, the Great Mystery,
comes all power. It is from Wakan-Tanka
that the holy man has wisdom
and the power to heal and make holy charms.
Man knows that all healing plants
are given by Wakan-Tanka,
therefore they are holy.
So too is the buffalo holy,
because it is the gift of Wakan-Tanka.



Ok I don't know who wrote them but I fell absolutely in love with them,Feel free to use them if you would like, easiest way is to copy and paste onto Microsoft Word, I also made pictures with the poems they turned out really nice, I don't have Print shop pro as of yet, but I used another program and I like how they turned out.

Have fun and enjoy.

Health and happiness to you!

Your Very welcome I should point out they are not really mine to share, I believe they are for everyone not just me :-D But Again you are very welcome, I feel that we as pagans should live by these prayers, it doesn't matter if your Heathen,Shaman, or Odinac. Whatever your path is Pagans and Wiccians share a common interest, THE EARTH, And as such I feel we should live by the prayers, LOL I feel like I am repeating myself.

They're really beautiful, SageWolf!

The second one reminds me so much of my experiences with God, it's a very powerful reminder of a powerful experience :-D Thank you for sharing!
