Circle Casting Prayer

We speak our prayers in the proper way,
to the proper directions
to those who dwell there.

Toward the East we pray,
to the spirits of thought,
the spirits of the words we use.

Toward the South we pray,
to the spirits of deeds,
the spirits of our ritual acts.

Toward the West we pray,
to the spirits of emotion,
the spirits of the feelings we give.

Toward the North we pray,
to the spirits of beings,
to the spirits of the bodies that turn.

We speak in the Center,
where the directions join,
and bring us to life that we might pray:
from the Center may we always speak.
