Yes, We Pray!

Some people have questioned whether or not Pagans pray, believing it to be a construct of patriarchal churches. But yes, we pray — and we should absolutely reclaim and glory in this important practice. The word pray comes from Latin roots meaning “obtained by entreaty.”

When we pray, we may simply seek to talk with our gods and Goddesses, or we may entreat them — asking them for help, guidance, strength, etc.

select a time of day for regular prayer — morning works well for many people. Light a candle and either speak what’s on your mind spontaneously or repeat a prayer of your choice. Your prayer needn’t be long, but it should be done midfully.

Here’s a morning prayer you might try:

Mindful now, I come to pray,
Here beneath the rising sun.
Guide me safely through the day,
Shielded ’til this day is done.

—-Susan Pesznecker
