Day 6 – for Apollo

Holy Lord, cause my skin to crawl
away from every evil thing.

Bright Apollo, far shooting God
of healers and prophets,
I offer this prayer to You today.

Holy Lord, cause my skin to crawl
away from every evil thing.

Most Holy Apollo,
Klarios, Oulios, Alexikakus,
Who averts all harm,
protect me, oh my God.

Holy Lord, cause my skin to crawl
away from every evil thing.

In Your Presence, oh my God,
nothing impure may stand.
In Your Presence, oh my God,
nothing impious may find purchase.

Holy Lord, cause my skin to crawl
away from every evil thing.

Shining Horios,
keep my boundaries strong,
that no pollution may affect my mind,
my heart, my soul, my work.
Boedromios, preserve me,
as I wade into this filth.

Holy Lord, cause my skin to crawl
away from every evil thing.

I lay my petition before You, Shining God,
that I may stand in the light of Your protection.
To You, Lord Apollo,
I pray.

  1. Hello Galina, I wanted to share with you that I love this prayer. You posted it previously, some time ago. I experience that this prayer purifies miasma and that protects me. It also helps me connect to this wonderful God. I say it twice a day, both in the morning and in the evening. Thank you for your prayers and writings that help us finding our Gods while we walk though this complicated world.
    Hail Apollo!

      I wasn’t planning on repeating any of my prayers for this weekday prayer project, but i’ve had a lot of really powerful feedback on this particular prayer, so i decided to include it. 🙂
