How to find us online


Prayer is hugely subjective, and what one person likes, another might not.  It’s all good.  If you are looking for a prayer of praise for a specific deity, then there’s lots of sites out there with prayers or poetry on that you can adapt to your liking. 

Suzanne had found A Book of Pagan Prayer (Ceisiwr Serith, 2002) really useful.  Whilst it’s not a wholly heathen book of prayer, there is plenty in there, including sections on how to write your own and what things you might want to consider.
