A Native American's Prayer


Prayer to the Voice in the Winds

O Great Spirit, whose Voice I hear in the Winds,
Hear me -- for I am small and weak:
I need Your Strength and Wisdom.
I seek Strength, O Great One, not to be superior to my Brothers --
But to conquer my greatest enemy: Myself.
I seek Wisdom: the Lessons You have hidden
In every Leaf and Rock so that I may learn
And carry these messages of Life and Hope to my People.
May my hands respect the many beautiful things You have made;
May my ears be sharp - to hear Your voice.
May I always walk in Your beauty;
And let my eyes behold the red and purple Sunset
So that when Life fades with the setting Sun,
My Spirit will come to You without shame.

THis prayer reminds me very much of the prayers of the ancient Celtic Church of Ireland Scotland and Cornwell. They were not part of the R.C. church and obviously before the Protestants.Their great saints included Patrick, Columnbanus and Columba. They were fearless Christians in their day and remind me very much of the native American Indian.

True, receiving a pay day loan is quick but sometimes, whatever you require is a good plan,
not a quick one not fake it is important to know what your credit rating is and how significant the harm is before you approach a lender.
