Evil never wins.
It will always be defeated, but there will be casualties.
I look to the Goddess and see her standing besides me.
I find the power which is mine
I raise my sword and defeat the face of evil with the
hands of the Goddess.
She will keep me safe.
For we are her children forever.
I gather my Brothers & Sisters close to me
I gather the strength of the Witches from the past
I gather the animals around me
My prayer begins:
I stand before the Goddess under this new moon. I seize the power of the moon in my hands. I bring the children to my side. The Goddess sends her light to me. My family shows the love that we have for each other. May the Goddess send you her power.
May those around us feel the joy that we bring to the circle. May prosperity fill our lives.
As her children we show our love for Mother Earth daily. She shows respect for all that is alive. We pray for those who live in fear to find safety. We pray for those who live in pain to find compassion. We pray for those in cages to run free. See how the birds fly free in our skies. See how the animals roam free. May their days be long.
I send our power to the four corners. I send our wishes to all. Bless the children. Bless our families. Bless the animals. But most … Blessings to all.
