An Introductory Prayer for Unknown Land Spirits

By: Mike Kaan

Hail, spirits of this land!
Spirits of green and red,
spirits hidden and unhidden,
I call to you!

I come before you seeking friendship and wisdom.
I come before you so that I may know you.

See me as I walk lightly among you,
and hear me as I say these prayers to you.

May your wisdom be revealed to me,
and may my presence disturb you not.

Spirits of this land,
I come with this gift to honor you.
May I fall into your favor.

Land spirits, accept my offering!

A Prayer to Thor for Protection from Severe Weather

By: Mike Kaan

Hail Thor,
wielder of the hammer Mjölnir,
slayer of giants and trolls,
defender of Midgard!

Storm clouds gather,
ill wights and giants
of the furious winds
threaten the land and its people.

Loud-Rider,
I ask for your protection,
and ask that you defend my home and family
from these foes.

I give to you this offering
with the hope that you may aid us.

May your hammer strike true!

Thor, accept my offering!
