During my years in USA I attended many sweat lodges and learned to pray in the Lakota way. I owe a lot to their wisdom and so post this prayer by Chief Arvol Looking Horse. Be sure to watch the video below
A letter from Chief Arvol Looking Horse
A Great Urgency
To All World Religious and Spiritual Leaders
Time has come to speak to the hearts of our Nations and their Leaders. I ask you this from the bottom of my heart, to come together from the Spirit of your Nations in prayer.
We, from the heart of Turtle Island, have a great message for the World; we are guided to speak from all the White Animals showing their sacred color, which have been signs for us to pray for the sacred life of all things. As I am sending this message to you, many Animal Nations are being threatened, those that swim, those that crawl, those that fly, and the plant Nations, eventually all will be affected from the oil disaster in the Gulf.
