Great and Gracious Mother,
Who gave me strength and healing and light,
Thank You for being with me
in my most difficult hour.
Thank You for saving us
from the hurricane,
For helping me do what
needed to be done.
I know You always say,
“Find your strength [within you],”
but You certainly helped me find it.
Opener of the Ways,
Guardian of the paths,
Thank You for conducting us safely
to our evacuation place
and back home again.
Great Lady, Mother of Cats,
Thank You for watching over
Your children who are in our care.
Thank You for being with them, and with us,
as we drove them for three hours
to a place of safety.
Great Mother, Healer and Lover,
Thank You for the gift of Light
Which You gave me upon our return.
Thank You for your precious healing
and love and care.
May You love me as much as I love You.

Thank you, and you’re welcome.
It’s funny because I never would have thought of doing that had I not seen someone else do it, and do it beautifully. When I started following my now-friend at Only Fragments (onlyfragments.com), I was astounded that she was posting prayers. “Oh my god, she’s posting prayers on her blog! How can she find the courage?” But then I started reading those prayers, and eventually, I saved a couple of them for my own use. I found a prayer from In the Desert of Set (gbmarian.wordpress.com) that I saved also. And now here I am, posting one of my prayers. I don’t know how translatable it is to other people’s experience; maybe next time I’ll write a prayer that’s more generic.
Once again, I learn that you never know where life will take you. It’s a good thing. 🙂
