A masai prayer

Below you find a prayer of the Masai. Beautiful isn't it?!


We pray thee at sunrise and sunset, that you may not abandon your sacred duty of sustaining our lives.

The water that quenches our thirst, the air that we breathe, the trees that provide shade, and the animals that give us company, all make life real and complete.

We the children of the earth pray for wisdom, that we may in turn be good custodians of these precious gifts to us and our unborn generations.

For if we fail nature, we shall have failed ourselves, and the generations that come after us.
