For Loki on the 4th of July.
(wrote yesterday but forgot to post)
Hail to You Loki, God of quixotic beauty,
God of devotion, best ornament of Sigyn’s Hall,
Burden of Her arms, fire of Her heart,
God of doing Your duty even when it hurts,
of courage and saying what needs to be said,
doing what needs to be done,
of standing and holding the line against entropy
even when the sacrifice for doing so is high.
Your name is a blessing on my lips.
May I love You better and more deeply
every day of my life.
Prayer to Loki for July 5
Thank you, sweet and merciful God,
for Your care, Your compassion,
for holding me safe, and helping me
ford the challenges in my life.
I learned perseverance and trust in the Gods
at Your knee and for that above all else,
I am deeply grateful.
Protect me and mine, Loki, this I pray.
Grant us Your blessings always,
and teach us how to better serve You
and all the Gods we love.
Hail to You, Loki,
My lips rejoice forming the phonemes
of Your name.
