An Ojibwa Prayer

Grandfather,

look at our brokenness.

We know that in all creation

only the human family

has strayed from the sacred way.

We know that we are the ones

who are divided.

And we are the ones

who must come back together

to walk in the sacred way.

Grandfather,

Sacred One,

teach us love, compassion, honor

that we may heal the earth

and heal each other.

“Ojibwa Prayer” was composed by Dr. Art Solomon, an Ojibwa Elder from near Sudbury, Ontario.
