Our Sacred month is coming to an end. I truly hope I have been able to give you some additions ideas to work Hestia both into your practice and into your home. We’ll close out the month with this prayer (it’s my favorite):
Gentle Hestia, sitting at the fire, at the heart
of each home, goddess revered above all others.
Bringer of quiet comfort, of belonging,
of peace, of a place of love and family,
of the strength to hold together against all ill,
provider of serenity, I honor you.
Hestia, seen in candleglow and soft shadow,
I pray to you. Help me to see you in my work,
to make our home a refuge from care and distress.
Give me competence, efficiency, wisdom;
give me quick sharp eyes to see what must be done,
give me will to do it. Goddess, bless my home.
