Devotions

A few of the devotions I have written so far.



Devotion to Sehkmet

Lady of the Fire of the Sky,
Passion of Heaven,
Whose womb brings life, light, and love,
With your breathe comes the storm and the breeze,
In your hands rest the children of your heart,
In your heart burns the seat of power,
Bless now our bond,
Bless now our works,
Bless now our love.

Devotion to Anubis

Lord of the Forest of Night,
Bringer of rest,
Whose hands give quiet peace,
Comfort is your staff,
Wisdom is your robe,
In your heart there can be no fear,
In your arms there is no doubt,
Quietly you accept our fears,
Patiently you await our love,
Bless our inner heart.

Devotion to Bast


Lady of the Starlight Hour,
Touch of Heaven,
Whose breasts hold life, light, and love,
The moon rests in your womb,
The sun sings from your sex,
Your's is the taste of pleasure,
Your's is the kiss of heat,
Bless now our love,
Hold now our hearts.

Devotion to Thoth


Lord of the Written Word,
Holder of the Scroll,
Lord of knowledge,
Your's is the cup of wisdom,
Your's is the sight of time,
Speak now your mind,
Remember now our fates,
Bless now the workings of the World.

Devotion to Hathor


Lady of Boundless Joy,
Eye of Heaven,
Whose heart beats with love, light, and life,
Dance now the song of life,
Across the sky you move,
Nourish now our hearts,
Cool now our tongues,
Bring the joy of the world to our souls,
By the Goddess we are whole.

Devotion to Sobek

Lord of the Fertile Water,
Guardian of the Flood,
Both blade and blood,
Your's are the jaws of life,
It is you that creates and takes,
In your presence I do not fear,
In your waters I do not ache,
By the God we are whole.

Devotion to Wadjet

Lady of the Streaming Sky,
Silken power of the stars,
Coil round this world beloved,
Glittering as the heaven above,
Bless us,
Know us,
Guard us,
By the Goddess,
We are whole.

Devotion to Horus

Lord of the Unconquered Sun,
Bow arm of the sky,
Shine brightly as you touch the earth,
Breathe deeply the summer's heat,
Guard now this world,
By the God,
we are made whole.

Devotion to Nekhbet

Old mother, Great Goddess,
Proud lady of dark wings,
You who brings life to death,
Still now our fears,
Open now our hearts,
Bless us,
Love us,
Guide us.

Devotion to Khnum


Lord of the Creative Fire,
Lord of the Clay of Life,
Molder of our bodies,
You who gave our souls form,
Sculptor, artist, god,
Sturdy are your hands,
Strong is your will,
Form now our hearts,
Guard now our bodies,
By the God,
We are made whole.

Simple devotions like these are really not done as much. They really give you something, like a strong foundation in your faith, that spell work just doesn't do. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you.
I may end up writing more the more I learn about these gods and others in the pantheon. ^^
