Norse Prayers: To Honour the Godesses

Honouring through prayer to the Gods and Goddesses is a basic principle when working with any Deities in any spirituality, it is really simple to do and requires nothing more than your belief and dedication, part of the work however is making these prayers your own, and so writing your own prayers is an essential part of working with them. Below are my Prayers that I wrote and have used a lot, the idea being you can take these and adapt them to your own words making the dedication a personal journey for yourself and whichever deity you work with.
