How long has it been?

we can do is remember to take the time to pray.
We should pray every morning and every evening.
In this way we can be sure that the Great Spirit
is running our lives. With the Great Spirit we are
everything but without Him we are nothing.
All Warriors know their greatest weapon is prayer.
To spend time talking to the Creator is a great honor.
Great Spirit, thank You for listening to my prayers.
