Prayer To Be Said Before Bed
I’ve decided to share a nightly prayer that we do in my House. I hate only posting aggravating material. it’s not good for the soul. I try to balance each and every polluted thing about which I feel the need to write (like my previous post), with something spiritually nourishing. While it’s good to be aware of the negative, it’s so much more important to cultivate that which is good and holy. Prayer, among those things, is the most crucial of all.
Prayer to Niorun to be said before bed Niorun of the fire, Niorun of dreams, Protector of home and hearth, Warder against evil, Please hear my prayer. Your sanctuaries are beneath the earth, in places hidden and filled with power. The duergar and Svartalfar know them well. Please, I pray, make my home a sanctuary too. Fill it with Your holy fire, the fire that destroys evil, the fire that hallows and renders us spiritually clean. Drive out all pernicious, malicious wickedness, every evil spirit large and small, every bottom feeding creature that might prey upon me as I sleep and dream, and at other times too. Drive out all wicked powers seeking to do me harm, Wise and unyielding Goddess, I pray, protect me from the malice of others. You, great One, Who roams the night, Please guard the boundary of my world: my home, my body, my sleeping consciousness, my hame should I travel as I sleep. Let me dream good and prosperous dreams. Let me return to wakefulness safely, that I may serve the Gods well, and thoughtfully all the days of my life. Gracious Niorun, let me sleep restfully. Let me wake refreshed. Surround me in the dark and soothing cloak of Your protection. This I humbly pray, oh Goddess. Hail to You, Niorun, Goddess of dreams and darkness. (by G. Krasskova)
