Prayer is the backbone of Indigenous ways. Anyone who says otherwise is full of it. The people have lost faith in their Grand Creator, traditions, and the medicine ways of their ancestors. Indigenous people as a collective have fell for the colonizers cheap spell that Native ways and medicines are superstitious and backwards. Some may not say it outright but they speak it with their behavior and actions. Prayer is the backbone of Indigenous ways. When you pray you, you tap into the frequency of the Grand Creator–the great movement of life, the spirit of all that has been and will be.
That my dear friend is Indigenous Science which is also very much Spirituality. Life and the elements are very much alive; you are a part of this and also very much responsible for it. Make sure you keep yourself tuned up. Here is a general prayer for you to use as a template and adjust to your liking. If you apply this prayer to your daily routine it will empower you, your family, and community..Guaranteed.
Prayer is extremely powerful I can’t stress this enough!

Tlazocamati Hue Yokoyani-Ipalnemoani (Thank you Grand Creator-Giver of Life)
Thank you for this day to live here on this earth among your beautiful creations. Tlazocamati for another day to get it right.
Tlazocamati to all my Relatives- the earth, the fire, the water, and the wind which give us form; and to the animal and plant relatives that bless us with beautiful friendship, medicines, and nourishment.
Tlazocamati to all the Ancestor spirits with me on this earth walk, guiding me in ways that I sometimes may not see or understand
I acknowledge you ancestors, for your sacrifice to preserve these beautiful ways and traditions.
Yokoyani (creator), Ancestors, Allies.. I ask you to stay close to me throughout my days and nights.
Help me to stay focused on my purpose and go about my words and creations in a good way.
I ask that you guide and protect my family so they may walk in a good way, in a way that is true to their heart and uniqueness.
Yokoyani, help me to be impeccable with my words & actions, to not take things personal, to not assume, and to do my very best.
I ask that you even bless my enemies. Nurture them into a better way of life, make their hearts tender and their minds open. Humble them so they may be mindful of the consequences of their actions.
Hue Yokoyani (Grand Creator)..Ancestors.. I petition you to help keep me aware of any energies or spirits contrary to the health and well being of me & my family and for the purpose for which you have sent me/us here for.
Please dissipate those subjects and spirits that seek to operate in deception, shed light on them so they may be exposed and processed accordingly.
Yokoyani please help me to see myself in all your creations.
Help me to remove the smoke in front of my mirror so that I may see my true reflection— So that I may see myself in all peoples of the medicine wheel, in all the sacred animals, and all the sacred waters, deserts,valleys, and mountains.
Creator, help me to respect, understand, and walk in the manners and ways of my ancestors and not just talk them.
Help me to be strong in Sun with a firm fist.
Tlazocamati Yokoyani !
