Looking behind, I am filled with gratitude,
looking forward, I am filled with vision,
looking upwards I am filled with strength,
looking within, I discover peace
~ Quero Apache Prayer
May the sun
bring you new energy by day.
May the moon
softly restore you by night.
May the rain
wash away your worries.
May the breeze
blow new strength into your being.
May you walk
gently through the world and know
its beauty all the days of your life.
~ Apache Prayer
“May the Warm Winds of Heaven
blow softly upon your house.
May the Great Spirit
bless all who enter there.
May your Mocassins
make happy tracks
in many snows,
and may the rainbow
always touch your shoulder.”
~ Cherokee Blessing Prayer
“O' Great Spirit
help me always
to speak the truth quietly,
to listen with an open mind
when others speak,
and to remember the peace
that may be found in silence.”
~ Cherokee Prayer
“May the stars carry your sadness away,
may the flowers fill your heart with beauty,
may hope forever wipe away your tears,
and, above all, may silence make you strong.”
~ Chief Dan George
