Oh, Great Spirit May I Please You

Managing Real Estate Broker





Oh, Great Spirit

Whose voice I hear in the winds 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 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

Let me learn

the lessons you have hidden in every leaf and rock

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.


Translated by Lakota Sioux

Chief Yellow Lark in 1887


I love this prayer and I believe it is a beautiful way to begin our New Day a Day to rejoice and be GLAD!

 Beth and Richard Witt   This is a very good prayer that acknowledges God  in all things and has provided evidence of His existence all around us within His creation

Romans 1: 19-20

For the invisible things of him, that is, his eternal power and Godhead, are

seen by the creation of the world, being [aj]considered in his works, to the intent that they should be without excuse:
