    Cherokee Prayer ~Keep us, O God, from pettiness; let us be large in thought, in word, in deed. Let us be done with faultfinding and leave off self-seeking. May we put away all pretenses and meet each other, face to face, without self-pity and without prejudice. May we never be hasty in judgment and always generous. Let us take time for all things; make us to grow calm, serene, and gentle. Teach us to put in action our better impulses-straightforward and unafraid...."

    May God...

    Cherokee Rose, the Georgia state flower, so beautiful. It is said GOD answered the prayers of the mothers who lost their children on the journey of the trail of tears as a way to uplift their spirits, and give them hope

    1 Thessalonians 5:16 -Prayer should be a way of life-living in continual God-counsciousness, where everything you experience becomes a kind of prayer, where you submit to God's will by asking for help. When experiencing something good, you thank the Lord for it. When you meet someone who does not know Christ, you pray for God to draw that person to Himself and to use you to be a faithful witness. Maintaining a constant awareness of God and His power to work on our behalf is what prayer is about.
