Facing East I send my prayers away, away
East sky enlighten me I pray, I pray
East a place for peace
Lifelight anew you rise up
Spotted eagle I welcome you
And give thanks for visions
of peace, of peace

Facing South I send my prayers away, away
South sky for innocence I pray, I pray
South the peak of life
Gifts of new Horizons
Golden eagle I welcome you
And give thanks to work
in peace, in peace

Facing West I send my prayers away, away
West sky to strengthen me I pray, I pray
West the place sun goes down
Sacred and of ancient
Now Bald Eagle I welcome you
And give thanks for journeys
in peace, in peace

Facing North I send my prayers away, away
North sky for purity I pray, I pray
North the place of courage
Wisdom and of knowing
Oh White Eagle I welcome you
And give thanks for healers
in peace, in peace

Mother Earth I send you my prayers
Father Sky I send you my prayers
Oh Great Mystery I feel your breath in my mouth
Oh Great Mystery I welcome you
And give thanks for you in me
In peace, In peace , In peace

Listen:

Mother / Father Hear Us

Mother, daughter, sister, lover:
Hear us, hear us.
It is you we seek within us:
Goddess, guide us.

Father, brother, son and lover:
Hear us, hear us.
It is you we seek within us:
Horned One, guard us.

Mother and Father

(Laurie H.)
Mother, guide me.
Mother, hide me.
Mother, mold me.
Mother, hold me.

Mother, teach me.
Mother, reach me.
Mother, show me.
Mother, know me.

Father, protect me from
all that I’ve yet to learn.
Father, have pride in me.
Father, see light in me.
Father, give strength to me
for what I need to see.
Father, take care of me.
Father, be there for me.

Prayer of Praise and Adoration

My heart is filled with adoration
When I lift my eyes to you.
For you are Lord and Lady of all creation,
You make all things new.

My soul is filled with lasting peace
When I close my eyes to sleep.
For you are Lord and Lady, you’re right beside me
I’m safe within your keep.

My mind is filled with inspiration
When I open my eyes anew.
For you are hope and love outspoken,
Your words are full of truth.

My life is full of aspiration
When I see through eyes that weep.
For you are Lord and Lady of the grand and broken,
May I be your hands and feet.
