Father, Creator of us
all. Hear my prayer through this sacred pipe. Help my people to walk the
good road of life. May they forget their differences and remember their
likenesses. May they dwell in peace and harmony with all living creatures
"you" made. May goodness and happiness follow them until the coming
of those sacred red and blue days in a holy manner. May it be so. Aho.
I offer myself to Thee--to build with me and to do with me as Thou wilt. Relieve
me of the bondage of self, that I may better do Thy will. Take away my
difficulties, that victory over them may bear witness to those I would help of
Thy Power, Thy Love and Thy Way of Life. May I do Thy will always!

Trouble no man about his religion - respect him in his view of the Great Spirit, and demand of him that he respect yours. Treat with respect such things as he holds sacred. Do not force your religion on anyone.
