I think I'll share this here since this community has been so quiet lately. It's not really a prayer, but sometimes advice is what we're looking for from our prayers. This quote smacks me right between the eyes with a two by four everytime I read it. And given my current miserable mood, I need to listen more to it's advice, even if I probably won't being Armageddon girl and all.

Do you want to be really happy? You can begin by being appreciative of who you are and what you've got. Do you want to be really miserable? You can begin by being discontented. As Lao-tse wrote, "A tree as big around as you can reach starts with a small seed; a thousand mile journey begins with one step." Wisdom, Happiness, and Courage are not waiting somewhere out beyond sight at the end of a straight line; they're part of a continuous cycle that begins right here. They're not only the ending, but the beginning as well. The more it snows, the more it goes, the more it goes on snowing.

From The Tao of Pooh by Benjamin Hoff, copyright 1982.

Here's to good karma for all my friends who are out of the prowl tonight ^_~

(I know that sounds more like a toast than a prayer, but oh well *LOL*)

Thor I ask you to protect the children,
Especially those that have no one to protect them.
Guard them against those who would do them harm.
Use your hammer to punish those who would betray their trust.

If you had as many problems trying to get your thesis plants to grow as I've had, giving thanks wouldn't seem quite so funny!

My thanks, gracious Pomona,
for guarding my orchard
with the same care
as you guard your own.
Thank you for tending my plants
with the same skilled hand
you apply to your own.
Gentle goddess of the orchard,
for that which you have done for me
in watching over my trees,
I thank you.
Though they are not as great
or as numerous as your own trees,
they mean the world to me.

Gracious Athena you who are the patroness of those that wish to practice their skills,
Please let Rini get the lab job that she applied for.
Show those that make the decisions the wisdom of hiring her.
Blessed Be.

This is a song by Eliabeth Sims. The title is "Alaskan Prayer." It's a really pretty song.

Great Spirit of the mountains, Great Spirit in the trees
you flow along the shoreline, you whisper in the breeze
you warm me with your sunshine, you cleanse me with your rain
your drops scatter around me just to rise and fall again.

chorus: Oh Great Spirit, around me and within
flowing in and out of me on every breath
Oh Great Spirit, the beginning and the end
you are the source of all of life and death

Great Spirit of the soil, Great Spirit of the stones
you form the world around me, you are the flesh and bone
of earth, of man, of woman, of every living thing
I raise my voice in reverence, to your mystery I sing


Great Spirit of the icefield, Great Spirit of the snow
you send your long arms reaching through the valleys far below
carving paths through walls of stone as you slowly move along
your grinding and your creaking weave a subtle song

Gracious Goddess
Gracious God
You who are the source of
all creation
all destruction
all change
Please, give me guidance
Please, give me strength
Please, give me the ability
To become who I should be

Okay, well, it's more of a creed than a prayer but here we go:

I look to the wisdom and harmony taught by the Tao
To help keep me connected with the things I hold dear.
I look for help to maintain a larger view of my life,
my world and my choices. I have no desire to become
mired in the petty details that would keep me from
I wish to move and change in harmony with the forces
around me. For as I change because of others and others
change because of me, I am reminded that there is more
to my life than just me. May I never forget that lesson,
even in my darkest hours.

I'll Start
Since I started this community I guess I will do the first post, and I think it's only fitting that I use the first prayer I used when I began practicing Wicca.

Oh Great Goddess, whose voice I hear in the winds,
Whose breath gives life to the world hear me.
I come to you as one of Your Children,
I am small and weak.
I need your strength and wisdom,
May I walk in beauty.
Make my hands respect the things You have made
And my ears ever sharp to Your voice.
Make me wise, so that I may know the things.
You have taught Your Children,
The lessons You have taught in every leaf and rock.
Make me strong.
Not to be superior to my brothers and sisters,
But to fight my greatest enemy - myself.
Make me ever ready to come to You with straight eyes,
So that when life fades, as the fading sunset,
My spirit may come to You without shame.

I just want to welcome everyone and tell you a little about what this community is about. I ran a website for a couple of years called the Temple of Eternity, a Wiccan site devoted mostly to Isis. Well one of the features that I had was a place - I called it the Altar, where people could submit prayers to Isis or any diety that they wanted to. I had a really good response to this. Unfortunately, I decided several monthes ago that I could no longer give the Temple the attention it deserved so I closed it down. However I have come to realise that I really miss the Altar so I have reincarnated it here. Please feel free to leave a prayer, petition, devotion, or whatever and to whomever you wish. I'm pretty flexable and not a big fan of rules except this one: Respect for other is mandatory and I have a zero tolerance policy in regards to this. If you disrespect someone you're out and will stay out unless you can give me a really good reason why you should be allowed to continue to participate. I wanted everyone to have fun and feel free to express themselves. So this community will be what you the members make it.
