Oh, Great Spirit,
whose voice I hear in the wind 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 make my eyes 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.
I seek strength, not to be superior to my brothers and sisters
but to fight my greatest enemy - myself.
So when life fades, as a fading sunset,
my spirit will come to you without shame.
