O Great Spirit (wings2fly2heaven)

Here is the prayer that Thomas sent to me in the mail about a month before he passed away.  I was going through some things today, and happened upon his letter, that included this prayer.

Thomas (www.poetrypoem.com/samoth) left a legacy.  

O Great Spirit

Whose voice I hear in the wind,
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 every rock.

I seek strength, not to be greater than my brother or sisters, 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, like the fading sunset, my spirit may come to you without shame.
