Prayer for a Porsperous New Year

We thank You for the growth of the earth - for the rivers and streams, for the sun and moon.
We thank You for the herbs and plants that heal the sick, and
for everything that yields good and happiness.

We pray that we will have a prosperous new year. O Creator and Ruler, we give You thanks, for all things that exist in You.

We believe that You do all things for our good and our happiness-
and indeed that You can do no evil. Do not act severly toward us when we disobey Your commands.

Show us Your kindness, as You manifested it to our fathers in times past.

- Iroquois Prayer
