A Prayer of Thanksgiving

O Great Spirit,
We come before you in a humble manner,
offering what gifts we have,
Giving thanks for the gift of life that
we have been given
amidst the beauty of this Great Creation.
So that we may learn to walk the path of good medicine
as we give thanks to each of the four directions:
To the spirit of sun (warmth and light) in the East,
To the spirit of Earth (peace and renewal) in the South,
To the spirit of Water (purity and strength) in the West,
To the spirit of Wind (wisdom and giving) in the North.
We give thanks to Mother earth and to the Sacred Fire, which burns brightly in our hearts,
offering us the precious gifts
of clarity, openess, strength, and wisdom
as we walk the path of peace.
We give thanks to all our relations and for the beauty of all things,
For those who walk alongside us,
For those who have come before,
and for those yet to come.
In harmony and balance,
We give thanks,
O Great Spirit we give thanks
for our sister Usdi Inoli that you have granted us
this walk with her.
That you have allowed her spirit and wisdom
to touch our hearts.
In harmony and balance
We give thanks.
