A Morning Prayer

I will kindle the fire this morning
And centre myself among the Three Realms:
Upon the firm and bountiful Land,
Beside the wide and mysterious Sea,
Under the bright and shining sky.

I will kindle the fire this morning
In the presence of the Three Kindred:
The Nature Spirits, my neighbours on this land,
The Ancestors, for without them I would not be,
and the Shining Ones, who give order and inspiration in my life.

I will kindle the fire this morning
And carry within my heart the virtues of
Hospitality, that I may be kind and receive kindness,
Wisdom, that I may grow in knowledge and experience,
and Integrity, that my words and actions be true.

With the fire burning bright this morning,
I go out into the world
with the blessings of the holy Kindreds.
