Please forward as you see fit
Hello everybody – as you can see on the news the Wallow fire in Northern
Arizona is still uncontrollable and spreading.
The fire has destroyed everything in its path, over 1/2 million acres so
far, the largest fire in Arizona history. Please join us in a tribal prayer
to help the firefighters and all involved. Pray so the winds stop and the
rains start (without lightning please) We want to pray for the safety of
all. Ask for heavenly walls to protect our land and animals from fire. All

We are one Nation as Natives and our traditional prayers to the Creator as
Natives can be pretty powerful; not only are our tribal lands at stake
(White Mountain & San Carlos Apaches, possibly Zuni, and some Navajo areas),
but our non-native friends also need our help.
Please let us all connect our minds, hearts and our prayers across the miles
and pray. Wherever you are and whatever you have plan please stop for a few
minutes and raise your hands to the Creator to ask for help. If all of you
can forward this message across the Nations, we can reach many thru phone
and internet. Please start forwarding ASAP to reach as many as we can.
Please if your spiritual preference is not traditional – pray with us in
however way you talk to the Creator.
