O Great Spirit of God, Hear Us as we call to You,
O Great Spirit of God, whose voice we hear in the winds
and whose breath gives life
to all the world,
In Your mercy hear us.
We are small, weak and insignificant.
We come to you to find strength and wisdom for every day.
Let us walk in a sense of beauty
and help to make our eyes
ever behold the beauty of the sunset.
Make our hands respect
the things You have made
and our ears sharp
to hear and discern your voice.
Make us wise as men and women
so that we may understand
the things you have taught our relatives and friends.
Help us to learn the lessons you have hidden in every leaf and rock, and all parts of Your Creation.
We seek Your strength,
not to be greater than our brothers and sisters,
but to fight our greatest enemy, which is ourselves.
Make us always ready to come to You
with clean hands and eyes which can look straight at You without hesitation.
So that when life fades, as the fading sunset our spirit may come to you
without guilt or shame.
