Sharing a poem that was given to me by a family member while I was very sick. My grandfather was a Lakota (born on the reservation in South Dakota). I found this very comforting.

Our Father, the Sky, hear us and make us strong.
Our Mother, the Earth, hear us and give support.
Spirit of the East, send us your Wisdom.
Spirit of the South, may we tread your path of life.
Spirit of the West, may we always be ready for the long journey.
Spirit of the North, purify us with your cleansing winds.
