New Year Blessing for 2013
Oh Great Spirit I raise smoke to the four sacred winds and the four corners, so that the blessings can reach my brothers and sisters all in every corner of Great Mother Earth while the smoke disperses all over Father Sky and lit by Grandmother Moon. Let the smoke pass to each their blessing and do away with all sorrows and unhappiness, fill their homes with love, and the light of your wisdom. If any be sick, cure them; if sad, make them happy; if they have needs, fulfill them. Protect them from all evil. Please Father keep them well in good health, give them long life and wealth. Give them all your love as they love you. They can give testimony to your power and mercy, and most important your love. Oh Great Father in heaven I love you with all my heart as I love my brothers and sisters all. I am your servant and theirs. I ask for only one thing give me strength to keep going on doing as I do on the Red Road. Amen, Amen, Amen. Prayer Created by Cherokee Billie
