Thanksgiving Prayer

We return thanks to our mother, the earth, which sustains us.
We return thanks to the rivers and streams, which supply us with water.
We return thanks to all herbs, which furnish medicines for the cure of our diseases.
We return thanks to the moon and stars, which have given to us their Light when the sun was gone.
We return thanks to the sun, that has looked upon the earth with a beneficent eye.
Lastly, we return thanks to the Great Spirit, in
Whom is embodied all goodness, and
Who directs all things for the good of
Her children.

~Iroquois Prayer

Welcome to rocrebelgranny and thanks for the comment. I love the Iroquois prayer. I grew up in the midst of Iroquois country (Mohawk Valley of New York.

If you don't mind, I'm borrowing the poem and adding you my list of favorites.

That poem on granny included a line about prayer but I have such a varied group, I decided to leave it off. Maybe I should have put it in there but I like yours much better. May I post it sometime?

We're in the midst of holiday but wanted to get this out to you quickly and your blog seemed the fastest way to do it.

Take care.
