The Great Spirit, known as Wakan Tanka among the Sioux, Gitche Manitou in Algonquian, and in many Native American and First Nations cultures as the divine or the sacred, is the supreme being, God, or a conception of universal spiritual force.

This specific Prayer was translated by Chief Yellow Lark was given to me by a dear friend from the Ojibwe tribe. I cherished this prayer so much that i made it into a song

great spirit whose voice i hear in the wind

whose breath gives life to all the world

hear me i come to you

as one of your many children

i am small and i am weak

make me wise

so that i may know the things

you have taught my people

the secrets you have hidden

in every leaf and every rock

i need the strength and wisdom

not to be superior

to my brothers and my sisters

help me fight my greatest enemy

myself

make me always ready to come to you

with clean hands and straight eyes

so when life fades like the red and purple sunset

may my spirit come to you

with clean hands and straight eyes

great spirit whose voice i hear in the wind

great spirit who gives life to all the world
