Protogenoi Prayer

December 17, 2012

In preparing to do my daily devotional (in which I will be specifically honoring the Protogenoi), I realized that I left out Okeanos and his wife.  So below is my tweaked prayer.

Honoring the Protogenoi

I call to thee this first day of Heliogenna
and give thee the honor that is thy due oh Protogenoi.
First I honor gracious Mama Gaia,
draped in island spotted waters and
patterned with mountains and valleys,
you hold us and all animals to your bosom
and provide the bounty to survive.
Next I honor he that resides above Gaia
the dome of heaven, her lover of old,
Ouranos, who is decorated with stars and light.
I honor he who drapes Gaia with his watery depths,
the well. Okeanos, from which all water springs
and his wife, Tethys, who distributes her husband’s gifts.
I honor he that cradles Gaia from below,
the pit of the underworld, Tartaros, rival to the dome.
I honor those that move amongst this quad:
Aither, the blue light of heaven who illuminates the dome
and his wife, Hermea, who daily scatters the dark mists of her father, Erebos,
spread out nightly by her star spangled mother, Nyx.
There is Khaos who laughs at one’s confusion
and all encompassing Necessity, mate of eternal Time.
Finally there is Phanes, driver of the cart of procreation
and his consort the wise and beautiful Thesis.
Let me not forget those of nature who are Gaia’s attendants.
Gods and fey, you designed and decorate my world,
For this I honor you, Hail Glorious Protogenoi.
