O Lord, come quickly and reign on Thy throne, for now often something rises up within me and tries to take possession of thy throne; pride, covetousness, uncleanness and sloth want to be my kings; and then evil speaking, anger, hatred, and the whole train of vices join with me in warring against myself, and try to reign over me. I resist them, I cry out against them and say, "I have no other kings than Christ!"
O King of Peace, come and reign in me, for I will have no king but Thee! Amen.
– Eagle Chief Letakots-Lesa (late 19th century)
