Prayer to Epione #3

Disclaimer: This is a prayer taken from the blog underflow.  I did not write this prayer.

Soft-voiced Epione, beloved of skillful
Asklepios, mother of learned daughters four:
Hygeia who grants us hale and hearty lives;
Akeso who knits our bones and cools our fevers;
Panacea who holds the cure of all that ails;
and Iaso who knows of many remedies.
Blessed Epione, easer of distress,
to you do we turn when the torments of ill health
grow great, when wounds and maladies consume the soul,
when pain is cruel, bitter beyond bearing;
then do you come, sweet goddess, bringing comfort
and relief, easing the hurt. Goddess, I praise you.

Prayer to Epione #2

Disclaimer: This prayer was taken from the blog Greek Pagan.  I did not write this prayer.

Tender-hearted Epione, fair-haired bride
of wise Asklepios, mother of clever
Hygeia, gentle one who gives comfort and ease
to those whose hurt has passed the point of bearing,
kindly goddess whose soft hands soothe all agonies,
learned one who knows all remedies, all reliefs.
Epione, grant to this wo/man your gift of rest
and respite, keep at bay the torment and the pain.

Prayer to Epione #1

Disclaimer: This prayer is from the blog 'If a man obeys the Gods they are quick to hear his prayers.'  I did not write this prayer.

Praise be to tender and merciful Epione. I honour and adore you. Beloved wife of Asklepios, Godly mother of Iaso, Hygeia, Panakeia and Akeso and celestial mother to many more. Forgive me for my errors. Kindly Goddess, I beg you to ease my burden of loneliness, jealousy, heartache and fear. Please stop me from hurting so badly that I cannot continue. I plead to your grace and the grace of your family. Lay your fair hand upon me, comfort me as no one else will. I want so very strongly and I know that is wrong but I pray that you will not let me endure more than I can bear when I don’t think I can last much longer. Honour, worship and respect to you, gentle and learned Goddess. I am thankful for your blessings.

Our Imbolc

How was your Imbolc?  We didn't do much, but I did light a candle for Brighid, and I did make a Brighid's cross, though my cross didn't turn out that good.  I wanted to make a corn husk doll, but I just didn't get around to it.  I'm suffering from a bit of writer's block lately, as much as I hate to admit it.  So for today, I just wan to share some pictures of our Imbolc, and I hope my readers had a nice one, too.
