Prayer for courage- stuck!

Postby moonlightsonata » Sat Aug 12, 2017 4:13 am

For some reason I'm having a heck of a time writing a prayer for courage to either Hecate, the Morrigan, or both. Google didn't give me anything good. Anyone have one, or one that could be adapted? TIA!

I don't have any text, but it might be helpful to use a positive affirmation style to get the creative ball rolling.

Why use someone else's words, moonlightsonata? Many religions such as Christianity have pre-written prayers, and encourage that kind of "prescribed thinking," and you could find that in some paganism paths, as well. But it's my general understanding of paganism that it encourages one to develop a certain intuitiveness, an inner voice, from which we freely express our being.

From this point of view then, I'd encourage you to try writing from your heart. Meditate for a while to get in touch with that part of yourself, then be clear about what you want and why. Speak from the center of your being.

Ironically, it seems here that it will take a bit of (upfront) courage on your part for you to write your own prayer ...for courage. :wink:

I have prayed for courage... it got very divine, almost profane. The key was to aim for infinity, not for halfways. Maybe study courage to see how it thinks. For example it uses the euphemism to ignore what it is not doing. Can you make it a little meek? That will know the truth. etc.

I don't know if this helps frame the question but here goes. Courage is being scared spitless and doing it anyway.

Courage can also be the quiet kind. Ask someone who must undergo painful therapy every day to achieve a goal instead of curling up in a fetal position and not moving. The checkout person that is up every day at 4 AM to work selling coffee to put food on the families table. The courage of new parents that they must do the best for their new child and remember there obligation to society as well.

Just remember you have the courage to go on, to face situations that you want to pray for more courage to do them. Your prayer is already answered. You are praying for courage because you have decided you are going to do it. I just say "Thanks for having my back."
