A Rainbow of Spirituality

Native American Prayers/Religion

As a person who is part of the Cherokee Nation through the bloodline of his Grandmother, I have put together some of the great prayers of different tribes of Native Americans, as a token of love and appreciation.

This page is intended to be a second page of a series of pages on Native American spirituality. Click link below, for a more detailed explanation History and Details of Native American Religion,


May the warm winds of heaven blow softly on this house and the Great Spirit bless all who enter here.
Oh Great spirit, grant that I may never find fault with my neighbor until I have walked the trail of life in his moccasins.

O, Great Spirit, whose voice I hear in the winds and whose breath gives life to all the world, hear me. I come before you, one of your many children. I am weak and small. I need your strength and wisdom. Let me walk in beauty and make my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunset; my ears sharp so I may hear you voice in the song of the birds. Make me wise so I may learn the things you have taught my people; the lessons you have hidden under every rock and leaf. I seek strength, not to be superior to my brothers, but to be able to fight my greatest enemy...myself. Make me every ready to come to you with clean hands and straight eyes, so when life fades, like the fading sunset, my spirit will come to you without shame.
composed by Chief Yellow Lark

Grandfather, Great Spirit, fill us with light. Teach us to walk the soft earth as relatives to all that live.

In beauty may I walk;
With beauty before me, may I walk;
With beauty above me, may I walk;
With beauty below me, may I walk;
With beauty all around me, may I walk;
In beauty, may my walk be finished;
In beauty, may my walk be finished.

Navajo Shaman

Lord of the mountain
Reared within the mountain,
Young man, chieftain,
Hear a young man's prayer!
Hear a prayer for cleanness.

Keeper of the string rain,
Drumming on the mountain;
Lord of the small rain,
That restores the earth to newness;
Keeper of the clean rain,
Hear a prayer for wholeness.
Young man, Chieftain,
Hear a prayer for fleetness.
Keeper of the deer's way,
Reared among the eagles,
Clear my feet of slowness,
Hear a prayer for courage.

Lord of the thin peaks
Reared among the thunders;
Keeper of the headlands,
Holding up the harvest,
Keeper of the string rocks,
Hear a prayer for staunchness.

Young man, Chieftain
Spirit of the Mountain.

Edward S. Yeoma


Oh Great Spirit, Our Father, help us and teach us in the way of the truth; and keep me and my family and my tribe on our true father's path, so that we may be in good condition in our minds and in our bodies. Teach all of the little ones in Your Way. Make peace on all the world. We thank you for the sun and the good summer weather again; and we hope they will bring good crops of grass for the animals and things to eat for all peoples. attributed to Long Lance

A Hopi Prayer for Peace

Great Spirit and all unseen, this day we pray and ask you for guidance, humbly we ask you to help us and fellow men
to have recourse to peaceful ways of life, because of uncontrolled deceitfulness by humankind.

Help us all to love, not hate one another. We ask You to be seen in an image of Love and Peace. Let us be seen in beauty,
the colors of the rainbows. We respect our Mother, the planet & our corn fields, with our loving care, 
from Her breast we receive our nourishment.

Let us not listen to the voices of the two-hearted, the destroyers of mind, the haters of self-made leaders, whose
lusts for power and wealth will lead us into confusion and darkness. Seek visions always of world beauty
, not violence not battlefields.

It is our duty to pray always for harmony between man and earth, so that the earth will bloom once more. 
Let us show our emblem of love and goodwill for all life and land.

Pray for the House of Glass, (United Nations) Pray for within it are minds clear and pure as ice and mountain streams. 
Pray for the great leaders of nations in the House of Mica who in their own quiet ways help the earth in balance.

We pray the Great Spirit that one day our Mother Earth will be purified into a healthy peaceful one.
Let us Sing for strength of wisdom with all nations for the good of all people.

Our hope is not yet lost, purification must be to restore the health of our Mother Earth for lasting peace and happiness,
Techqua Ikachi -- for Land and Life!
