A Prayer to Thor During Times of Trouble

Hail Thor,
slayer of giants and trolls,
defender of Midgard!

Darkness gathers on the horizon
and troubling times lay ahead.
I call to you for strength to face these challenges!

Mighty Thor,
as you defend Midgard,
so too shall I aid you in its defense
standing up for the Earth and its people.

As you stride into Jotunheim to challenge the giants,
may I have the courage to go forth and challenge those I oppose.

As you uncover deception and illusion in your travels,
may I have the bravery to confront those
who seek to harm with treachery.

And as you take great risk to fight for Midgard,
may I persevere in the face of opposition
for the sake of doing what is right.

So be it!

A Prayer For When We Lose Our Way

Hail Mighty Kindreds!

I come before you as a child of the Earth
who has lost their way,
who has made mistakes,
and broken the virtues.

I come before you as a child of the Earth
who wants to find their way,
make amends,
and reestablish the virtues in my life.

I do this in the sight my ancestors,
I do this in the sight of the land spirits,
I do this in the sight of the gods,
and I do this in the sight of those I have hurt.

May the virtues take root in me once more,
so I can reach for the Sky.

May I have wisdom,
to apply my knowledge with experience.
May I have vision,
to see the direction I am going.
May I have piety,
so the Kindred may continue to bless me.
May I have courage,
to do what is right.
May I have perseverance,
to weather the hard times in life.
May I have integrity,
so that I may be trustworthy again.
May I have hospitality,
so my relationships stay strong.
May I have moderation,
so that I may not give into extremes.
May I have fertility,
so that I may be productive again
in all that I do.

So be it!
