Prayer to the Dagda about Parenthood

An Dagda, the Good God,
Great and Ample Father,
Teach me to be a parent in your image.
Always willing to help, going above and beyond for my children.
Teach me to be a healthy example,
that they may grow strong and joyful, skilled and resourceful,
fiercely loyal to their truths.
Teach me to give wise advice for their journey,
but to listen when they speak wise words on mine.
Give me the strength to travel to the ends of the earth,
to carry them when they have fallen too far,
to bring them home when they are lost.
May every action I take be for my love of them,
and may we always have full and satisfied hearts.



Prayer to The Dagda for Strength

Mighty Dagda
Good God
Ample Father
King of the Tuatha Dé Danann
I ask for your aid
Lift me into your strong arms when I am broken
Care for me and build my strength
Help me to do the impossible tasks set before me
Carry the mantle of my burdens with me
Teach me to care for myself, that I may care for others
Teach me to rest, that I may rise each day to do the Work
Teach me of Your gentle strength, that I may rise each day to do Your Work
May I provide enough to my family, my community, my people
May none leave my side unsatisfied

Wisdom from The Mórrígan

I’ve been meaning to write up this post for a while, but I didn’t feel I had all the words to share it properly. I hope that this reaches you where it needs to.

We were in a space that we share elsewhere (it’s like it’s in my mind but it’s not, think of it as a place I “journey” to), sitting on the beach. We sat in silence for a while before She spoke to me. She said this:

“Look at this shoreline. You are both the waves – relentless, powerful ever-changing – and the shore – steadfast, resilient, adaptable. Remember that.”

Prayer to Nemain

Nemain, Nemain, Nemain
Woman of Battle, Wife of War
Twisted Venom striking true
Fire and Fury, Fear and Frenzy
Striking down our enemies with your scream
You are the sparks that light the flame
Consuming our foes with panic
Laying waste to their armies
Burn away injustice
Bring your judgement down
Your frenzy drives away our fear
To the hearts of our abusers
We call your name in fury!
Nemain, Nemain, Nemain!


Prayer to An Mórrígan for the Protesters

This is a prayer my partner Nicole Bonvisuto wrote to help the protesters fighting against injustice and police brutality. The Mórrígan fights for justice.

An Mórrígan,
Lady of war and prophecy,
Please be a shield to the protestors tonight and all others,
Keep them safe from harm.
Protect those who have had lives taken and rights stolen.

Lady of sovereignty,
Lend us your far sight.
Let us know what needs to be known,
And see what needs to be seen,
Great Lady, keep us safe from harm.
May you be praised and honored always.

Prayer to Nehalennia During the Pandemic

I call to you, Nehalennia, and I ask for your blessings.
I ask that you guide and guard us as we travel
The essential workers, the healthcare professionals, those that need healing
That they may get to their destinations safely.
Guide and guard the dead
As they travel from this life to the next.
I ask that you guide and guard the goods we need
Both medical supplies and that which keeps our communities alive
So that we may survive this crisis.
I ask that you hinder that which is harmful to us
Stopping the spread of this deadly disease.
Keep us safe as we shelter from this storm.
Please grant us your blessings.

Prayer to The Mórrígan in Uncertain Times

I call to you, Great Mórrígan
I ask for Your blessings.
I ask that you grant us Your gift of Prophecy,
That we may see what is coming and prepare for it.
I ask that you grant us Your gift of Sovereignty,
That we may know what is right,
That we may stand and defend.
I ask that you grant us Your gift of Power,
That we may strengthen our communities,
That we may fight with relentlessness,
That we may see dawn beyond this night.

Prayer to Nehalennia

I call to you, Nehalennia!
Steerswoman
She Who is by the Sea
She that Brings and Breaks Storms

Nehalennia, both gentle foam and crashing waves
Nehalennia, both warm sands and deep waters
Nehalennia, both clear skies and raging tempest

Nehalennia, who guards travelers and merchants
Nehalennia,  who protects and guides
Nehalennia, who navigates treacherous waters
Nehalennia, who knows the way across all roads
Nehalennia, who gives us prosperity
Nehalennia, who brings bounty and fruitfulness

May you grant us safe passage
May you guide and guard the paths we travel
May you shelter us from storms
May you rain fury upon those that harm us
May you bring us bounty and prosperity
May you bless us with your presence

May our vows to you be kept dutifully, willingly, deservedly
Our praise and thanks for your blessing
Our praise and worship to you
