This prayer is from the Chinook Psalter.
May all things move and be moved in me
and know and be known in me.
May all creation dance for you within me.
To All Living Beings
Great Spirit, you have been here always, and before you, nothing has been. There is no one to pray to but you. The star nations throughout the heavens are yours, and yours are the green grasses of the earth mother. You are older than all need, older than all pain, older than all prayer.
Great Spirit, all over the world the faces of living ones are like. With tenderness, they have come up out of the ground. Grandfather, look upon your grandchildren, with children in their arms, that they may face the winds and walk the good road to the day of silence.
Great Spirit, fill us with the light. Give us the strength to understand and the eyes to see. Teach us how to walk the soft earth as relatives to all living beings. Help us, O Grandfather, for without you we are nothing.

Prayer for Village Earth (for seven generations)
O Mother Earth, we pray today to link our spirits with all
our brothers and sisters who share this web of life with us
and to honor those who once walked upon this land.
Rest quiet, Ancient Ones, we seek only to honor you and
to respect the land. We will not take from it lightly, nor
do harm. We will respect those creatures with whom we
share this sacred place.
Eagle, Snake, Coyote and Lizard, we honor you! Bless us,
please you Flying People, Crawling People, the Swimmers,
Plants and Tree People, and all our four-legged brothers and
Father Sun, we beseech you to shine down your love
and light upon us!
Sister Rain and Brother Wind, walk softly here, for we are small
beneath your mighty 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!
O Mother Earth, accept our prayer, bless us with your energy
and healing. Help us to remember that we are connected to all
who share your sacred web of life … past, present, and future,
that in divinity and grace, we may exist as one!
