A Witch’s “Prayer” and a Spell Against Flood Damage

Great Ones! Gods, Guides, Angels!  Hark unto my call.
Great Mother, Great Father nurture and protect us in our time of need.
Be with us now, we pray. (Lights White Candles)

Ancestors of Spirit! (claps hands three times) Mighty Dead of The Craft, drawn close these Samhain-tides.
Awaken within us the old powers, tried and true; Shelter us from all harm and aid us in this time of need.
Be with us now, we pray. (Lights Black Candle)

Ancestors of the Blood! (pounds chest in heart-beat pattern three times) My own beloved dead, Mothers and Fathers of my line, back through the reach of time,
Return once more to hearth and home, protect our children and pets, make strong these foundation stones and shelter us from all harm.
Awaken within us your tenacity to survive; that will aid us in this time of need.
Be with us now, we pray. (Pours out offering of liquor)

Ancestors of the Land! (Stamps foot on ground three times.) Those who’ve cultivated and protected these lands in your time, those who’ve lived here, worked here, died to defend us and been laid to rest here,
Return once more to farm and city, harbor and armory. Protect our livelihoods, our crops, our livestock, our buildings. Keep safe our sacred places, our cemeteries and temples.
Awaken within us brotherly love and our Eastern North Carolina identity; aid us all in our time of need.
Be with us now, we pray.

(Lays map of region on pentacle, Rune Algiz for protection and defense is drawn over map; surrounds a monopoly house piece with hematite, rose quartz, blue lace agate, and an iron coffin nail, rings with red rose petals.)

Map of Region, Rune of shielding, stones, iron nail and rose petals on my altar pentacle.
Map of Region, Rune of shielding, a house figurine, stones, iron nail and rose petals on my altar pentacle.

(Lights Incense)
Powers of Air, of intellect and wise governance. Be with us now!
Blow free all confusion; lend your powers of critical thinking and aid all our officials, aid workers and citizens in beneficial decision making as we ride out this flood.
Keep us safe from harm.
In gratitude, we call you into this working.
(blows incense gently over items on pentacle.)

I visualize a clearing and calming of the wind and atmosphere itself. I see the atmosphere of our state glowing yellow.

(Lights Red Fire Candle)
Powers of Fire, of action and protection. Be with us now!
Ignite within us the motivation to work hard to help our neighbors, the strength to persevere through difficult times, and the power to rebuild in ways that improve our preparation in the future.
With your power we rise into resolute, well-organized, and beneficial action. Awaken within us all that sacred mission that will serve our highest good at this time.
We surrender to your fires all hubris, all unhealthy ego-attachment to the unnecessary material possessions.
Keep us safe from harm.
In gratitude, we call you into this working.
(Touches iron nail to the flame, then uses nail to draw an invoking pentagram over top of the spell materials.)

I visualize the people of our state, especially the police, national guard, officials and aid workers rising into action to the aid of their neighbors like a well-armored and well-provisioned army, setting out to battle in perfect formation. I see the people of our state glowing red.

(Touches purified waters)
Powers of Water, of intuition and acceptance, Be with us now!
Awaken our instincts, grace and compassion. Help our emotions ebb and flow with these waters with a calm acceptance that all things change. Bring succor to those who are grieving their losses.
Your flood waters now accept their boundaries, flowing gently, evaporating quickly, finding the least damaging path to the sea.
Powers of Water, protect our water systems from pollution and disease. Protect our municipal treatment systems so they may do their work.
Keep us safe from harm.
In gratitude, we call you into this working.
(Sprinkles waters upon the ring of rose petals.)

I visualize the flood waters themselves, crystal clear, clean, flowing gently and easily, receding back to their normal river beds, accepting the boundaries of the dams and retention walls that hold them. I see the waters of our state glowing blue.

(Touches Sea Salt)
Powers of Earth, of stability and fortification, Be with us now!
Keep us rooted and nourished so that we make do the work before us. Empower the dams, levies and dikes to hold fast and steady. Be the sturdy banks that guide the water in the least destructive way possible to a peaceful resolution.
Aid our farmers and protect the bounties of their fields so that we may have the food needed to sustain us.
Be the energetic wall that defends our homes and businesses from destruction.
Keep us safe from harm.
In gratitude, we call you into this working.
(Sprinkles salt in a ring around the rose petals)

I visualize a strengthening of foundation stones, footers, piers and retaining walls; the metals and minerals of the earth itself know their purpose, to be strong and guide the waters. I see crystalline grids forming around all vulnerable areas and systems. I see the very land of our state glowing green.

Great Ones! Gods, Guides, and Angels! All those who keep us safe and illuminate the path before us.
Powers of East, South, West and North! All those from Above and Below who answer our call, in gratitude we set you to your work!
Great Mother, grant us your grace. As the moon waxes into fullness, I anchor our protection to her growing power.
Then as she wanes, may the effect of those flood waters wane quickly with her.
Great Father, grant us your strength. As the sun wanes into autumn, guide us through these dark times. Help us find our mettle, rising into our power, for the Highest Good, harming none.
In gratitude, our intentions are made manifest.
As is our will, it is so. SO MOTE IT BE!

I clap my hands three times, and leave the working to burn for a while. Then I return, as I am able, to relight and repeat, giving thanks for each small miracle that unfolds. I will continue this working daily until the moon is full. Blood Moon will peak on Sunday, October 16, 2016, 12:23 am.
