A Prayer for Canada

No comments

I could post a thousand links or write a thousand well-reasoned rants, and perhaps I will in the future, but for now, this is my prayer for the country I still call home and for all of us who are part of Canada. 

O Great Spirit

Whose voice I hear in the wind

Whose voice gives life to the world

Hear me

I come to you as one of your many children 

I am small and weak

I need your strength and wisdom

May I walk in beauty

May my eyes 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 I may know the things

That You have taught your children

That lessons that You have hidden in every leaf and rock

Make me strong, not to be superior to others

But to be able to fight my greatest enemy: Myself 

Make me ever so ready to come to You with straight eyes

So that when my life fades as the faded sunset

My spirit will come to You without shame
