May the Warm Winds of Heaven
Blow softly upon your house.
May the Great Spirit
Bless all who enter there.
May your Moccasins
Make happy tracks
in many snows,
and may the Rainbow
Always touch your shoulder.
More Native American Prayers
O Great Spirit
Make me wise so that I understand
The things you have taught my people.
Let me learn the lesson You have hidden in every leaf and rock.
I seek strength, not to be greater than my brother
But to fight against my greatest enemy – Myself.
~ Ancient Indian Proverb ~
May you have the strength
Of eagles’ wings,
The faith and courage
To fly to new heights,
And the wisdom of the universe
To carry you there.
~ Native American Blessing ~
As I walk the trail of life
In the fear of the wind and rain
Grant O Great Spirit
That I may always walk like a man.
~ Cherokee Prayer ~
I will draw thorns from your feet
We will walk the white path
Of life together
Like a brother of my own blood
I will love you.
I will wipe tears from your eyes
When you are sad
I will put your aching heart to rest
~ Cherokee Blessing for Travelers ~
Oh Great spirit,
Grant that I may never find fault
with my neighbor until I have walked
the trail of life in his moccasins.
~ Cherokee Prayer ~
An old Cherokee man is telling his grandson about a fight between two wolves that is going on inside of him:
One is evil: it is envy, sorrow, regret, greed, self-pity, guilt, resentment, arrogance, inferiority, lies, falsehood, false pride and ego.
The other wolf is good: it is peace, joy, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, empathy, faith, benevolence, truth, compassion and generosity.
The grandson listens intently, thinks for a moment and then asks his grandfather, “Which wolf wins?”
The old Cherokee man replies simply, “The one I feed.”
