Prayer: “The first peace, which is the most important, is that which comes from within the souls of people when they realize their relationship, their oneness with the universe and all it’s powers, and when they realize that at the center of the universe dwells the Great Spirit, and that this center is really everywhere, it is within each of us.” ~Black Elk
