Prayer to Badb

Badb, Great Queen
Battle Crow and Poet Prophet
Prophecy pours from your Red Mouth
Red Mouthed and Shrieking
Shrieking as you fly
Fly above me, O Badb
Badb inciting us to fight
Fighting with spears clashing
Clashing and flashing against the shields of our enemies

Enemies falling to our spears
Spears plunging hearts into earth
Earth below me, the blood of battle take
Take this as your feast
Feast and grow strong with life
Life renewing as life fades away
Away you fly, O Badb
Scald Crow satisfied with the the outcome
Come to us again, O Badb, and fly above us always

Prayer to Fea

I call to Na Mórrínga
I call to you, Fea
Wife of War and Woman of Battle
You who strikes fear with a cry
Who tears at the hearts of your enemies
You are quiet love and fierce fury
Your sharp claws bring chaos
Your piercing cry lives in me
My praise to you, my worship to you
Keen, true-striking Goddess
I walk in your shadow on the battlefield.

Prayer to Indigenous Spirits of the Land

Spirits of this land
Spirits of the people who came before, who called this place home
I bring you these offerings:
I bring you my awareness
That I may witness your pain and suffering
I bring you these words
That I may heal the pain of words twisted against you
I bring you this warmth
That I may give comfort instead of sickness
I bring you this food
That I may give back life taken from you
I bring you clean water
That I may refresh your tired and screaming throats
I bring you my voice
That I may lift up yours
I bring these to give back what my forebears stole from you through blood and terror
You were stolen from this land as it was stolen from you
My offerings and prayers will not remove the atrocities you’ve felt
Though I hope that it brings you some peace

Daily Devotional Prayer to The Mórrígan

I call to you, An Mórrígan, Great Queen
Bringer of Victory
Sorcerer and Seer of the Tuatha Dé Danann
I ask for Your guidance
May Your hands and wisdom guide me along the path you wish me to walk
That I may always be doing Your Work,
Speaking Your Truth
Walking with You in right relationship
Fighting together side by side on the battlefield.
O Great Queen, An Mórrígan
I am Your warrior, Your poet, Your priest
I am with You, and You are with me.

A Prayer and A Portent

An Mórrígan
Great Queen
Queen of Battle Fury
Queen of True Portents
Lend us Your Strength
May Your hands guide us
Our screams strike fear
Our magics bring confusion
Blood and fire raining upon our enemies ceaselessly
Spears strike Truth
Truth illuminates fear
Fear upon our enemies
Enemies Scatter
Scatter like flies
Flying in confusion
Confused and afraid
Fleeing in fear
Fear becomes terror
Terror screaming
Screams as flesh is wrought from bone
Bones are picked clean
Clean from filth and waste
Waste becomes growth
Growth becomes peace

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

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.
