A “Daily Elemental Rosary Prayer” by Tirgereh

On the Charm:

The day has begun, the time of resting at end

as I gather and prepare to go forth

I take this time to pray and remember:

it is not alone do I wander

it is not alone do I search

it is not alone do I explore

it is not alone do I live

For I am surrounded with the love of the Mother

And I am blessed with the bounty of the Father.

On the first five beads:

1 _ She and He are ever with me

2 _ She and He are ever within me

3 _ She and He forever love me

4 _ She and He forever loved by me

5 _ She and He abide with me

On the Medal:

Blessed be, Lady and Lord, whom I honor and worship

Bless me, Lady and Lord, whom I invoke and adore

Guide me in the Old Ways, Lady and Lord,

For I walk the path of the Ancient Ones.

Excerpt of “Rosary to the Earth Mother” by Meg

On the Crucifix or Medal:

Green Lady of the budding Tree, The Full Blossomed Fruit, the Dying Seed

Queen of Life, Death and Birth

Mother of Sorrows, Mother of Mirth

Ancient Mother Known as: Gaia, Demeter, Tellus, Ceres, and Danu

I say this rosary in honor of You.

On the first five beads:

1 _ I ask the Earth Mother to Ground Me

2 _ I ask the Earth Mother to Center Me

3 _ I ask the Earth Mother to help me grow

4 _ I ask the Earth Mother to help me flow

5 _ I ask the Earth Mother to Nourish my Soul

On the medal:

Green Dewy One

Rich brown earth that nourishes me to my core

Lady of the rolling prairies

Dusty One of the Desert

The Fire that lies under all

Womb and Tomb of all Life

Mistress of the Garden of G!d

The punctuation of these prayers copies the original from the authors. The first prayer was written by Tirgereh, a 35-year-old Seattle Wiccan who goes by only one name. The second prayer was written by Meg, a 24-year-old in Maine who declined to give her last name because her family does not know about her practice.
