Submission to Saga’s Agon

A History Teacher’s Prayer to Sága
by S. Stockton

Sága, Goddess of Ages, bless my endeavor to pass on the history of my land, my morals, my people.
Help them to listen, Record Keeper of the Æsir, so that perhaps they will not repeat the mistakes of ages past.
May they hold fast to the histories of their Ancestors.
May they hold fast to the histories of their heroes.
May they hold fast to the histories of our land.
Strengthen my resolve, oh story-seething Sága, so that I may honor You in my lessons day by day, year by year, generation by generation.
May they never forget how their blessings came to be, and may they remember who they must honor for those gifts.
May they never forget the shame that may cling to them, and may they seek restoration by righting the wrongs of the past.

  3. Wow, I appreciate you taking the time to write about the old Gods and Godesses. I take strength and feel honored to know these gods!, I know that I’m not alone, I feel stronger every time I read or listen to our ways, poems, stories as this is the way our Ancestors did it. By “father/mother” to “son/daughter”. I can only read the stories with my perspective, with others of our kin tell us about the old ways and gods in another perspective or direction, it only adds to the already strong feelings I have towards my Ancestors and the Gods/Godesses.
    Blessed Be.
