Different Native American Prayers

Vi setter indianerne hverken på pidestall eller stjeler
spiritualitet deres ved å lytte til deres bønner, lære
dem og gjenta dem i det uendelige rett i fra hjertet.
Dette er små steg for å få verden til å ble et bedre sted å bo.
Her er noen av mange gode bønner :

Native American Prayer 

Great Spirit,
Give us hearts to understand
Never to take from creation's beauty more than we give,
Never to destroy want only for the furtherance of greed,
Never to deny to give our hands for the building of earth's beauty,
Never to take from her what we cannot use.

Give us hearts to understand
That to destroy earth's music is to create confusion,
That to wreck her appearance is to blind us to beauty,
That to callously pollute her fragrance is to make a house of stench,
That as we care for her she will care for us.

Give us hearts to understand
We have forgotten who we are.
We have sought only our own security.
We have exploited simply for our own ends.
We have distorted our knowledge.
We have abused our power.

Great Spirit,
Whose dry lands thirst,
Help us to find the way to refresh your lands.
Great Spirit,
Whose waters are choked with debris and pollution,
Help us to find the way to cleanse your waters.
Great Spirit,
Whose beautiful earth grows ugly with misuse,
Help us to find the way to restore beauty to your handiwork.
Great Spirit,
Whose creatures are being destroyed,
Help us to find a way to replenish them
Great Spirit,
whose gifts to us are being lost in selfishness and corruption,
Help us to find the way to restore our humanity. 


"Oh, Great Spirit, whose voice I hear in the wind,
Whose breath gives life to all the world.
Hear me; 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.
Help me to remain calm and strong in the face of all that comes towards me.
Let me learn the lessons you have hidden in every leaf and rock.

Help me seek pure thoughts and act with the intention of helping others.
Help me find compassion without empathy overwhelming me.
I seek strength, not to be greater than 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,
my spirit may come to you without shame.

As I Walk with Beauty
As I walk, as I walk
The universe is walking with me
In beauty it walks before me
In beauty it walks behind me
In beauty it walks below me
In beauty it walks above me
Beauty is on every side
As I walk, I walk with Beauty.

Healers Prayer

Out of our own sorrows and joys
Out of our own losses and gains
Out of our own knowledge of ease and disease
Out of our own store of wealth and poverty
Out of our own efforts to walk through the darkness of disappointment and grief,
We here in this place join hands and heart.

Knowing that life isn't always easy
Knowing the rewards aren't always tangible
Knowing that this Earth walk takes Courage and Support...
Dignity and Faith,
In Unity...leaning on each other,
We reach out to those in need
And wrap them, with gentle gossamer strands of Love light,
In a healing a Sacred healing embrace,
And whisper words of encouragement...

Because we are all One on this planet,
We and the Earth...all One.
Every Human, every Animal...One.
Every Winged, Finned, Creepy-crawly creature.
Every Plant. Every Stone.
All who have come before us and will come after us...
One Sacred Circle of Life.

And we commit ourselves to the Stewardship of this Sacred Circle
And to this Sacred Planet, Earth.
And ask that our efforts be blessed with Grace and Approval.

We must succeed in this endeavor!
There is no other way, but Love.
There is nobody else, but Us.

As we heal ourselves, we heal each other.
As we heal each other, we heal the world.
So be it.
