Having recently run across a couple of posts where I wrote various Pagan prayers, I decided to bring back the practice. As today is Tuesday and I’m very much interested in social justice, I decided a prayer to Tyr was an appropriate thing to write.
Great Tyr, I call out to you on this day, which is named after you. Guide me and teach me to be an instrument of justice. Help me to be mindful of the ways, both large and small, that those less fortunate are wronged and harmed. Instill in me the obligation and help me to find the courage to speak out against those who would injure and exploit others.
You who gave your own hand in order to bind the Wolf of Destruction, remind me that justice comes with a price. Help me become more aware of the luxuries and comforts that I will have to give up so that those less fortunate may enjoy more freedom. Urge me to develop the compassion that I might make those sacrifices and count it both my duty and honor.
By your guidance and my will. So mote it be.
