The Importance of Wiccan Prayers
In Wicca, the exercise of prayer is encouraged. There are many Wiccans who use prayers only when they are going to do a spell and they want to make a consecration or on the Sabbaths or Esbats, but in the day to day they should have the habit of offering prayers, not only on holidays and special occasions. Prayers are very important in Wicca, every practitioner must feel what their heart is asking.
On a physical level, it has been proven that those who pray to relax, their bodies respond in a healthy way, calms anxiety, eliminates stress, gives hope that on a psychological level it is a consolation balm. On a spiritual level, Wiccan prayers raise the good vibration, and accelerate the rhythm of the frequency that transforms it.
Wicca offers many prayers, there are the classic prayers such as self-blessing, the burden of god, the burden of the goddess among others that have emerged over the years.
Many Wiccans over the years and according to the conviction of their belief have modified or created their own prayers dedicated to the god and the goddess, which brings them metal benefits, physical and spiritual. No matter what type of prayer it is, as long as it is a prayer from the sincerity of the heart made with love and devotion, it will rise through the spiritual planes and reach its goal.
A large part of Wiccans recommends making at least one prayer daily to the goddess in her general archetypal aspect as a great mother and creator of life, therefore, in this prayer, she is praised as the divine mother of the universe, she prays for the inhabitants of the earth, that love will grow, that good deeds will grow and that they will be present in our lives.
A pagan prayer is very similar to any other religion since it makes a request to the entity or being superior to the one we believe in.
Although many times it is a bit complicated to get books of pagan prayers you can always look for other books at a metaphysical level that offers us a lot of tools to design our own prayers and to give in the key point for these prayers to be effective. To get inspiration in creating our own prayers we must open our inner ear and listen to what our soul, our heart, is asking.
The power of the spoken word generates waves, just as it can do much good it can also do much harm, so well directed prayers always leave a trail of positive energy both to the person praying and to everything around him, so the more a person prays, the more positive prayers he offers, the more light he will have and the people around him will benefit from his service to life.
How to Start With Wicca Prayers
To start with the Wicca prayers you can start with simple prayers that you can practice every day for a full lunar shekel for 28 days, it is a good way to start, where you tell the great mother everything you feel, it does not necessarily have to rhyme or have poetry it just has to be a prayer said from the heart always focused on the good things.
Even if the Wiccan firmly believes that the goddess exists just by talking to the spirit of the goddess is enough and for that, you don't need many rituals, you can be walking in a park and talk to the spirit of the goddess, tell her what you have done all day, tell her anything you want and as the great mother that she is, she will always listen and pour out her blessings and her graces in the best possible way.
You can also pray to the great father, to the supreme god with any prayer as long as it is from the heart that you are convinced that he will listen to you. Many times creating our Wiccan prayers can become a little confusing because of the great similarity to many other religions but something we must bear in mind, the prayers will be very similar to other religions but directed to different gods or beliefs, we just have to relax to ask and thank from the soul so that every word that comes out of the mouth or thought are powerful and thus enjoy praying to our gods because we will be convinced that they hear us.
The correct action is the daily prayer of the servant of the guardian of the goddess that can be found in books. You can start by saying it very slowly, feeling what each word is written there says and visualizing its affection, you can recite it as many times as you feel necessary in the devotions. With the practice of these prayers you can experiment with daily repetitions in multiples of 3, 6 or as best suits you until you feel the presence of the great mother, or the great god in you.
It is good once we have our own prayers to share them with our loved ones or with other people as it comforts their beliefs and learn that others are also praying to the great mother and asking for life on earth so that we can exchange ideas and visualize new points for the creation of new prayers, this can also motivate new people or those with no knowledge of religion to practice Wicca. In these times there is a great need for prayers so that the rulers and leaders begin to work for life on earth in a truly correct way.
The good thing about Wicca prayers is that they are not used to do evil or to harm other people or beings, but are for their own benefit. However, these prayers may not always have an accurate effect or the effect a person expects, but there are always people willing to perform them for their own good.
