O Great Spirit! We come to you for guidance. Mother Earth we honor you (turning to the four directions) to you who reside and dwell to the North-give us foresight in our deliberations this day. West-give us the knowledge to understand the matters that we are to consider this day. South-help us use good judgment. East-give us the will and the strength to fulfill our decision no matter how difficult it may be.

Much has already been said about receiving strength, inspiration, and direction from Him who has all knowledge and power. If we have carefully followed directions, we have begun to sense the flow of His Spirit into us. To some extent we have become God-conscious. We have begun to develop this vital sixth sense. But we must go further and that means more action.
