Elder’s Meditation – Prayer
“When we want to talk to Him we burn tobacco and it takes our prayers
all the way up to the Sky World.”
— Louis Farmer, ONONDAGA
Our herbs and our medicines are all here for the purpose of serving. Offering tobacco as a gift to
the Creator is proper use of our medicine. In this way, we are able to communicate from the physical
world to the spiritual world. Sometimes we have a hard time coming up with the right words when
we pray, especially if we are really mixed up. The tobacco and the sage will take the intent to the spirit
world. The meaning behind the words are more important the words. The Creator always knows
our intent. The tobacco helps us get to the Sky World.
Today, my Creator, I offer You this tobacco. I want to thank You for being in my life. I want to tell
You how much I appreciate the honor of being here to serve You. Tell me this morning what I can
do for You. You are the reason I live.
