Sioux Prayer

The following Sioux Prayer was furnished by Bishop Chaput of Rapid City, South Dakota, and published in the first South Dakota Psychiatric Association Newsletter, "The Calumet" April 1990.


Grandfather, Great Spirit,
Fill us with the light.
Give us the strength to understand the eyes to see.
Teach us to walk the soft earth as relatives to all that live.
Help us, for without you, we are nothing.


Let Us Help You Find a Psychiatrist.
