Prayers R-T

Reflection Prayer:  (Adapted from the Madrian, author unknown. This is our prayer of repentance.)

Madria Dea, we are Your true children now and Eternally; May our hearts turn from all transient things, that we live in service to others and guided by the Holy Daughter, return to Perfect Union with You.

Seven Symbols Prayer: Composed by Rt. Rev. Georgia E. B. Cobb and Rev. Pamela Lanides.

O, Dea, Supernal Sun,

O, Dea, Supernal Moon,

O, Dea, Apple of Wisdom,

O, Dea, Star of Wonder,

O, Dea, Cross of Faith,

O, Dea, Dove of Peace

O, Dea, Rose of Joy,

We thank You, we bless You and we adore You.

Shining Star of the Shimmering Depths (Adapted from the Madrian/author unknown)

Shining Star of the shimmering depths, look upon us.

Light of the nocturnal heavens,

O, hear us.

We are gathered in worship of You.

We are devoted to Your service.

O, Guiding Star of the Sea,

Come among us.

Silver Light of the Forests (Adapted from the Madrian. Author unknown).

Silver Light of the twilight forests, send us forth in the protection of Your Spirit that no profane thing may enter into us.

Grant us to see all things with delight that are lovely and to glory and increase in force and energy.

Fill us with wonder in the sight of the seas and of the heavens and of every place wherein You are.

Commander of the roaring wave, help us to turn from all that is low or inglorious neither with anger nor with pain, but to know that in You we stand above all such things.

Guiding Light of the faithful soul, fill the deepest caverns of our spirit with the exhilaration of Your love. Send us forth upon the world as torchbearers of Your delight and grant us strength in You and in ourselves that we may value all things rightly, regardless of the consuming weight of the profane and the frailty of all that is beautiful.

Silver Star of the Waters (adapted from the Madrian) 

Silver Star of the Waters

Who has fashioned all the world into being,

beyond all knowing is the Splendour of Your Light.

Enfold my spirit, within your Mighty Mantle

and may the Pure Stream of Your Grace flow within me,

in this world and in all the worlds to come. Blessed are You.

The Trisagion

Repeat three times while tracing the sign of the cross:

Holy God, Holy Mighty, Holy Immortal, have mercy on us.
