Prayer for Friday

Hope is the thing with feathers
That perches in the soul
And sings the tune without the words
And never stops at all.
~ Emily Dickinson

Grandfather,
Mysterious One,
We search for you along this
Great Red Road you have set us on.

Sky Father, Tunkashila1,
We thank you for this world.
We thank you for our own existence.
We ask only for your blessing and for your instruction.

Grandfather, Sacred One,
Put our feet on the holy path that leads to you,
and give us the strength and the will
to lead ourselves and our children
past the darkness we have entered.
Teach us to heal ourselves,
to heal each other and to heal the world.

Let us begin this very day,
this very hour,
the Great Healing to come.

(Leonard Crow Dog – Shackled Eagle, Lakota)

1 A Lakota word for the Great Spirit (or God), literally translated as “Grandfather”.
