A Hopi Prayer

Hopi Declaration of Peace

I would like to share my Hopi prayer with you 🙂 to share blessings with everyone who comes through.

Let me walk in beauty, and make my eyes ever behold the red and purple sunset

Make my hands respect the things you have made and my ears sharp to hear your voice.

Make me wise so that I may understand the things you have taught our people.

Let me learn the lessons you have hidden in every leaf and rock.

I seek the strength, not to be greater than my brother/sister but to fight my greatest enemy- myself

Make me always ready to come to you with clean hands and straight eyes

So that all that we do now must be done in a sacred manner and in celebration.

We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.
