I pray to thee
My thoughts may be filled with fear,
Worry for you, and your safety,
But I know you will return from battle,
You will rest your weapons once more.
I kneel here, my heart and soul upon the altar,
My mind open, in total worship,
To give anything to whoever listens,
To make sure you will be ok.
Dearest Athena, I ask this of you;
Protect her with your guiding vision
Give her wisdom of ages past
The skill to find ways unknown
Oh, Lord Hephaestus, I request your aid;
Lend your skill to the artificers of her arms
Work with her in the care of her tools,
Give your blessing to all she uses
To you, Lord Ares, I pledge myself;
Fill her enemies with fear,
Crush their souls in face of her might,
Bring her victory over all who stand against her.
Mother Gaia, hear my plea;
We are but your young children,
Watch over her, as you would any child,
And bring her safe to home once more
Great Lord Zeus, I humbly ask of you;
Protect her heart, keep fear from her,
Strike down those who would do her harm,
Guard her as you would any of your chosen.
Lord Hades, of the dark rivers;
Should she ever cross you path,
Keep her soul for me, Keep it safe,
Till I can free her back to this world.
Swift winged Hermes, hear me now;
Bring her back, guide her steps,
Show her the way out of dangers,
Never let her lose her path.
Oh, Solar twin, Lord Apollo;
Who sees the events of all,
Watch for the dangers,
Keep her way clear if you can.
Oh, Luna twin, Dear Artemis;
Care for and save my sister,
As if she were your own,
I ask this of you. Of all of you
Oh sister of mine, my dear sister
Never forget that my thoughts are with you,
I know you will come back again,
And I place my trust in you and your strength.
I wish more than anything for you to come home,
For you to be welcomed back home safe
I pray to these for you, and for your soul
I will call upon them all for you.
