Mabon Prayers



These Mabon prayers were written by Galen Gillotte in the Book of Hours: Prayers for the Goddess and the Book of Hours: Prayers for the God.

I got this off the website Wicca Spirit.

Mabon Morning

This prayer should be done in the morning, between dawn and noon

Opening

Hail Bright Maiden of quicksilver delight
shine upon me.
Thy morning blessing, which,
like the new dawn, refreshes my Spirit and
lifts my heart with song.
Blessed Be."

Main Prayer

Lady,
In swirling cloak of crimson,
of burnt orange and saffron,
You ride the winds of morning.
The scent of burning leaves fills the air;
the Second Harvest draws near.
Solitary once again You embody balance -
You are an archetype of the Self -
consummate, remote.
I long to follow as You seek the
formless wilderness
with never a thought to the cost.
You are the bright flame of morning,
impelling and unrestrained.
Bless me with Your passion.

Meditation

Equal day and equal night,
Where do you need more balance in your life?

Daily Affirmation

In the Name of the Maiden:
I am filled with magic and will share some today.

Closing Prayer

Thanks to Thee Bright Maiden for Thy care,
for green laughter and fire-edged dew,
and for Thy blessing, a most precious jewel.
Blessed Be.

Mabon Afternoon

This prayer should be done in the afternoon, between noon and 3pm.

Opening

O God of Thunder, God of Might,
set aside Your lightning bolts
and take Your ease of Love with me.
You are the God of laughter!
You are the God of all delights!
Blessed Be.

Main Prayer

Lord, The Lord has gone to sleep
while Maiden's weep.
The edge of death
conceals the ivory bones
of Winter from our sight,
as equal day and equal night
gives way to the dark.
The silence is our hearts
proclaims the end of Summer
and the passing of the light.
The sorrowful Maiden's weep,
for Winter keeps
all things to Herself.
The dormant God gestates
within the womb of fate,
and dreams He is the coming of the light.

Meditation

Equal day and equal night.
Where do you need more balance in your life?

Daily Affirmation

In the Name of the God: I will seek balance in thought,
word, and deed today, in order to be open to the God's visions..

Closing Prayer

Thanks to Thee, Lord of the Dance,
for leading me into the deeper mysteries
of the heart.
Be with me now and always.
Blessed Be.

Mabon Evening

This prayer should be done in the evening, between 3pm and dusk

Opening

Hail Mother of the golden wheat, You of
plenty and fertile womb, breathe Thy blessing
upon my heart, nourish my soul
that I, too, may create the world with love.
Blessed Be.

Main Prayer

Lady,
Cloaked in ebon sorrow
You herald the Second Harvest;
the Wheel is almost turned to
Winter's stillness.
To some You mourn the sacrifice of
Mystic Lover and of love;
to others pale Persephone's embrace
of Death's domain call forth Your grief.
Your drink is sacrifice and sorrow,
and bitter desolation...
Yet, like death, Your lamentation
cannot endure forever;
Winter's solitude and silence
offers peace.

Meditation

Sorrow you have known. What strengths grew out of it?

Daily Affirmation

In the Name of the All-Mother: I am strong on many levels:
physically, spiritually, emotionally, creatively, and mentally.

Closing Prayer

Terra Mater, Mother of all life, I give
Thee thanks for Thy blessing -
the fruit of the vines, the fruit of my spirit;
life's abundance.
Blessed Be.

Mabon Night

This prayer should be done at night, between dusk and dawn.

Opening

Hail Dark Lady of the Crossroads,
of wisdom hard-won,
grant me Thy blessing, purify my heart,
and teach me the truth of my soul;
show me that death is but the gateway to life.
Blessed Be.

Main Prayer

Lady,
Dark Lady of the Autumn,
of fire-tipped trees
and glowing flame,
of wild, star dappled nights,
bless this time of harvest,
both of the earth and
of the spirit.
Fill me with dreams of foretelling;
for You are silent save in dreams.
Fill me with wisdom;
for You are the Lady of the Wise.
Prepare me for Winter's stillness;
for revelation springs from the Great Silence
and I shall have visions
and prophesy in Your holy Name.

Meditation

Light and dark; positive and negative; birth and death.
Where are you in the balance of opposites?

Dream Images

In the Name of the Dark Crone: I see the coming of the Crone..

Closing Prayer

I bow to Thee Hecate, Diana, Mari and thank
Thee for Thy blessing - the Cauldron of Night
full of life, and death, and life again;
Thy magic gives me wings.
Blessed Be.
