This week I tried to continue with my Sun Devotional, but it was more challenging than it has been in a while. I think it was so difficult because we had cold, cloudy weather so it made doing a devotional to the sun that I could not see very challenging. By mid-week I had decided to spend a few days with my Patron goddess, Athena. I would approach my altar, light some incense in offering to her, and say a brief prayer to her. Each prayer was slightly different, but they all had a message similar to the one below. Athena has been a presence in my life for longer than seems possible, so it’s important to me to keep my connection to her though this journey, while also allowing myself to explore my spirituality on many different levels. This prayer was my way of sharing that message with her.
Guide me in your wisdom as I approach this new path.
Grant me the strategy to be successful
and the knowledge to know my limits.
You who have guided me for so many years
Help me to explore my spirituality
while also remembering my roots.
Allow me to learn from your lessons
so that I can become the person I am meant to be.
Allow me to explore the depths of my spirituality
and the spirituality of those around me.
Help me to stay connected to my path,
and to have the wisdom to know when I am lost.
Thank you for your continual presence in my life.
Thank you for your guidance and your understanding.
Thank you for helping me to become the woman I am today.
May my actions and devotions make you proud.
