Pow Wow Pray for native American veterans
[14:08] Redtail Magic: We come together today as a way to honor all the veterans of past wars. All our veterans from World War II, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Bosnia, The Falklands, Iran, Balkans. Worthy men and women who gave their best when they were called upon to serve and protect their country.
[14:08] Redtail Magic: We respect them, we thank them, we honor them, we are proud of them, and we pray that Tunkasila, Great Spirit Grandfather will watch over these special people and bless them with peace and happiness.
[14:09] Redtail Magic: Tunkasila, Great Spirit Grandfather, I send these words to you. Hear me, I am small and weak.. To Father Sun, Grandmother Moon, to all of my relations, to Mother Earth, and to the Four Winds The Sacred Seasons of Life.
[14:09] Redtail Magic: We pray that you will bless them, Tunkasila, for their unselfish service in the continual struggle to preserve our freedoms, our safety, and our country’s heritage.... for all of us. Bless them abundantly for the hardships they faced, and for the sacrifices they made by their many different contributions.
[14:10] Redtail Magic: We ask for healing for the veterans whose spirits and bodies are scarred by war, whose nights are haunted by memories too painful for the light of day. We pray especially for the young men and women, in the thousands, who are coming home with injured bodies and traumatized spirits. Bring peace to their hearts and peace to the regions they fought in. Bring solace to them Grandfather, may we pray for them when they cannot pray.
[14:10] Redtail Magic: We pray for the men and women currently serving in our armed forces, especially for those in harm's way, shield them from danger and bring them home. May they be mentally and physically strong when required to face the challenges of combat. Undergird them with Your Holy Spirit and might when they are called upon to endure the hardships of battle. Enrich them spiritually that they may cope with life and death situations on the field of battle.
