Prayer to Hestia:
Well-honored Hestia, queen of the hearthfire, first among the deathless ones, first are the offerings you receive, first are the blessings you provide.
Hestia, holder of the household, upholder of community, tender of the flame in every home, every city, every place where we gather together to live our lives. First you are in tales long told, eldest and youngest child of old Kronos and clever Rhea; first you are in holy rites, first are you in family customs, first to take from simple meals or lavish feasts.
Where bread is broken, where welcome is warm, we know your might. O goddess.
