Native American

Step 2: We came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could help us regain control.

Principle: Hope

There is hope no matter how much misery and despair we feel. God can help, but we too must do our part. The Creator has gifted us with free will, and the power of choice, which must be in alignment with our goals.

Text or Verse

My Creator, please lean close and hear my commitment
that I may begin the process of healing.
My Creator, I am hurting.
Oh Great Spirit, accept the pact I make with you today.
I am a spiritual seed.
On my own I don't now how to grow and be happy.
Plant me near you that I may grow under your power and wisdom.
Great Spirit, alone I don't know how to do this.
Creator, mold and shape me into a spiritual warrior.
Oh Great Mystery, please hear me.
