Recently Commissioned Prayer for Khonsu

I’m posting this to share a prayer to the Kemetic God of the moon, Khonsu, that C.C. recently commissioned from me.

Prayer to Khonsu
By Galina Krasskova


(if possible, begin by lighting a bit of incense)

I praise the God of the Moon, 
Keeper of Night, Khonsu (dua!*).
I praise the God of the Moon,
most Holy Traveler,
Who marks the passage of time, 
blessing each moment of our lives. 
We dream under Your blessed gaze, 
and Your hands brought us into being, 
with craft, care, and magic. 
Dua! You Who are our Pathfinder, 
You have filled us with magic too. 

Be our Defender, oh sweet God of night. 
Keep us safe as we sleep and dream. 
Illuminate the darkness and protect us, 
Oh great Healer, as only You can. 
Protect us against malefica, against sickness, 
against evil spirits, evil tongues, and evil thoughts.
Protect us please, against vicious animals, 
against injury, and the peril of sudden death. 
Make our sleep restful and relief giving, 
that we may rise refreshed to praise You again. 

You, Khonsu, are the wise serpent 
Who fertilized the egg of the world, 
setting creation in motion. 
Let us dream for ourselves a better fate 
than that with which we were born. 
Teach us the power of transformation, 
the trick of the serpent shedding his skin, 
that we too may be born anew, 
each day upon awaking. 

Son of Mut, Son of Amun
Friend and Companion of Thoth,
You protect the order the Gods have decreed. 
May my tongue ever praise You. 
May my heart ever find joy in Your service. 
Dua! Most Holy God
May I ever find favor in Your sight. 
Hail to You, Lord Khonsu.  



*This Kemetic word is an expression of both gratitude and praise.
