31 Days of Devotion: Dagr God of Day
2. How did you become first aware of this deity?
I first learned about Him through Sigdrifa’s Prayer, which I say quite often. I don’t think I ever really thought about what it means that we begin by hailing Day and that He, like Mani and Sunna, is a God Whose very name gives Him sovereignty over such an important part of our living world. It wasn’t until many, many years (a couple of decades actually) later, when I was tapped to paint an image of Nott that I got any personal sense of Him. He came strongly during a time of deep stress and illness and I started offering Him a prayer, quite often Sigdrifa’s Prayer because I know it by heart and have set it to music, in the mornings, sometimes even as the dawn was rolling back the darkness of night. The brief devotional contact, when I first felt spurred to begin honoring Him, made me want to learn more and to give this devotional relationship some serious consideration and time.
