Smudging Prayer


May your hands be cleansed,

that they create beautiful things.

May your feet to cleansed,

that they might take you where you most need to be.

May your heart be cleansed,

that you might hear its messages clearly.

May your throat be cleansed,

that you may speak rightly when words are needed.

May your eyes be cleansed,

that you might see the signs and wonders of this world.

May this person and space be washed clean

by the smoke of these fragrant plants,

and may that same smoke carry our prayers,

spiralling, to the heavens.
