Native American Prayers

Cherokee Prayer:


God in heaven above please protect the ones we love.
We honor all that you created as we pledge our hearts and lives together.
We honor mother earth - and ask for our marriage to be abundant and grow
stronger through the seasons;
We honor fire - and ask that our union be warm and glowing with love in our
hearts;
We honor wind - and ask we sail through life safe and calm as in our father's
arms;
We honor water - to clean and soothe our relationship, that it may never
thirst for love;
With all the forces of the universe you created, we pray for harmony and true
happiness as we forever grow young together.


Apache prayer


Now you will feel no rain,
for each of you will be shelter to the other.

Now you will feel no cold,
for each of you will be warmth to the other.

Now there will be no loneliness for you;
now there is no more loneliness.

Now you are two bodies,
but there is only one life before you.

Go now to your dwelling place,
and enter into your days together.

And may your days be good
and long upon the earth.
