Prayer Card Agon

I have a new prayer card (in progress) for the Kemetic Goddess Nephthys (Nebet-Het). She is the wife of Set, Mother of Anubis, Sister to Isis and a lovely Goddess Who cares for the dead. I have the image for the card, but I do not yet have a prayer.

So, for the next week, until November 10 ( at 9pm EST to be exact), I am running a little agon. I am inviting readers to submit prayers to Nephthys. Prayers should be between 25 and 30 lines long (they can be shorter but they need to fit on a 2 1/2 x 4 inch prayer card, so longer is often problematic) and can be submitted to me at krasskova at gmail.com. Just put “Nephthys” in the subject line.

Once the agon closes, I’ll use divination to determine which prayer is the “winner” and the author of that prayer will receive a copy of my Sekhmet novena book (if you already have it, you can request a different novena book, but that is the only one I have to One of the Neteru) and a dozen of the cards once they’re printed. Each contributor will receive a prayer card of his or her choice (include mailing address and let me know which card you want when you submit your prayer).

I don’t have a devotional practice to Nephthys, and I always feel it’s best when prayers for these cards are written by people who do have a relationship with the Deity in question. So, I’m reaching out to you for help. Here is the card, originally mixed media on Arches Watercolor Paper.
