Pagan Mealtime Prayers

Tuesday, August 19, 2008
To me there is nothing more important then prayer in our daily lives. But I also know that sometimes we don't know what words to use. So I have put together some prayers that I have found and some that I have wrote to help us thank the Gods for the bounties of the Earth.

Flesh of my flesh
Blood of my blood
As I eat of this bread
And drink of this wine
So do I do of you
Blessed Be!

Breakfast time

Mother Earth (or Goddess of your choice)
Thank you for my breakfast,
It will give me energy to last,
And, make me as strong as a ships mast.

Lunch time

Mother Earth (or Goddess of your choice)
Thank you for my lunch,
I really needed this noontime munch,
To give my energy an extra punch.

Dinner time

Mother Earth (or Goddess of your choice)
Thank you for our evening meal,
All day long you've helped me a great deal,
It is your Great Love we feel.

A Simple Thanks

Lord and Lady, watch over us,
and bless us as we eat.
Bless this food, this bounty of earth,
we thank you, so mote it be.

A Prayer to the Earth

Corn and grain, meat and milk,
upon my table before me.
Gifts of life, bringing sustenance and strength,
I am grateful for all I have.

Celebrating Meat

Hail! Hail! The hunt has ended,
and meat is on the table!
We honor the deer who feeds us tonight,
may his spirit live within us!

Invitation to the Gods

I set a place at my table for the gods,
and ask them to join me here tonight.
My home is always open to you,
and my heart is open as well.
