Prayer of the Six Directions
Great Spirit of Love, come to me with the power of the North,
Make me courageous when the cold winds of life fall upon me.
Give me strength and endurance for everything that is harsh,
Everything that hurts, everything that makes me squint
Let me move through life ready to take what comes from the North.
Spirit who comes out of the East, come to me with the power of the East,
The light of the rising sun.
Let there be light on the path I walk,
Let me remember always that you give the gift of a new day and
Let me never be burdened with sorrow by not starting over.
Great Spirit of Creation, send me warm and soothing winds from the South
To comfort me and caress me when I am tired and cold.
Unfold me as your gentle breezes unfold the leaves on the trees.
And as you give to all the Earth your warm moving wind.
Give to me warmth so that I may grow close to you.
Great Life-giving Spirit, I face the West, the direction of sundown.
Let me remember every day that the moment will come when my sun will go down.
Never let me forget that I must fade into you.
Give me beautiful color. Give me a great sky for setting,
So that when it is time to meet you I come with glory.
Giver of all Life, I pray to you from the Earth.
Help me to remember as 1 touch the Earth that I am little and need your pity.
Help me to be thankful for the gift of the Earth and never to walk hurtful ly on the world.
Bless me with eyes to love what comes from Mother Earth
And teach me how to use well your gifts.
Great Spirit of the Heavens, lift me up to you that my heart may worship you
And come to you in glory. Hold in my memory that you are my Creator,
Greater than I, eager for my good life.
Let everything that is in the world lift my mind and my heart and my life to you.
So that we may come to you always in truth and in heart.
