Native American Prayer Cup
Small 2-inch pottery cup with white sage in a natural gift bag. Made by Winterhawk Pottery.
First, place one of the sacred herbs into the cup (sage tobacco cedar sweetgrass). These herbs have entered into an agreement with mother earth that they will protect us as long as we take only what we need and we show these herbs our respect. Then, hold the cup in your left hand, because it is closest to your heart, and raise it into the air. Say a prayer to grandfather, our creator. Set the cup up on a high shelf. Walk away and don’t touch until prayer is resolved.
