Prayers,Chants and Invocations

Blessing


May the road rise to meet you,
May the winds be always at your back,
May the sun shine warmly upon your face,
May the rains fall softly upon your fields,
And, until we meet again,
May the Lady and Lord hold you close between them.

Bedtime Prayer


I lay me down to sleep,
Please help me learn my world to keep.
To guard the air and skies of blue,
The oceans, lakes, and rivers, too.
Save the mighty forestlands,
The plains, the shores, and desert sands.
Protect all creatures, wild and free,
In air, on land, and in the sea.

A Prayer Before Meals
Before eating, say these or similar words (if necessary, whisper or merely think these words)


From forest and stream;
From mountain and field;
From the fertile Earth's
Nourishing Yield;
I now partake of
Divine energy;
May it lend health,
Strength and love to me.
Blessed Be.

Prayer before Meals


Goddess of the verdant plain;
God of sun-ripe grain;
Goddess of the cooling rain;
God of fruit and cane;

Nourish me with love;
Bless this meal I now share
With You both above.

The moon illuminates the earth
With wondrous silver rays;
Illuminate me through the night
And through the sum-lit days.

A Prayer Before Sleep


O Gracious Goddess;
O Gracious God,
I now enter the realm of dreams.
Weave now, if You will, a web of protective light around me.
Guard both my sleeping form and my spirit.
Watch over me
Until the sun once again
Rules the Earth.
O Gracious Goddess,
O Gracious God,
Be with me through the night.
