PRAYER FOR VILLAGE EARTH
(for seven generations)
by Sharon Auberle
Mother Earth, we pray today
to join with our brothers and sisters
in the company of whom we share this web of life.
We will not take from you lightly, nor do harm.
We will respect those creatures with whom we live.
Wolf, Hawk, Turtle and Bear, we honor you
and all our four-legged brothers and sisters.
Bless us, please, you Flying People,
Crawling People, the Swimmers, Plant and Tree People.
Father Sun, we beseech you
to shine down your light upon us.
Sister Rain and Brother Wind, walk softly here,
for we are small beneath your power.
Sister Moon, shine gently as you guide us
into dreamtime, and when you journey across the world,
send your stars to light our way home.
Mother Earth, accept our prayer,
bless us with your energy and healing.
Help us remember that we are connected
to all who share your sacred web of life—past,
present, and future—that in divinity
we may exist as one…
