National Day of Prayer — a few thoughts…..

Today is the National Day of Prayer for this year in the United States.  I have mixed feelings about this. While I think that prayer is a necessary part of our praxis as Hellenic Polytheists, I also do not feel that we need a special day on the NATIONAL level for us to pray as we should be doing so every day.

These members of the pantheon are the ones that I am remembering especially for this occasion as we work towards equality and social justice — the ideals that our country was founded on.

Many times we have differing view of how we are to do this, but as long as we work towards these goals with a sense of community….
