Prayer for Libation to Poseidon

Blessed are You, Lord Poseidon, Deliverer of Rain, Who travels through the atmosphere, thick in clouds.

Poseidon, Who churns the molecules before their release and subsequent fall to Earth, oh Lord, send your rains to us who have gambled our lives upon the breaking drought.

May this moisture supply the ripening fruit with wide girth, and the fields also, rich in grain and corn.

Look now upon the trees, and see how they bend with the weight of abundance; that which You have provided, Bountiful Lord.

Your showers come suddenly, pouring with abandon upon the City, and all the rural Lands.

We have awaited Your presence with quiet breath, for Your storms are fickle, and we are but one species in need of Your attention.

We honor You, Poseidon, and we acknowledge Your dominion over the crucial elements, those which permit the furtherance of human life.

Lord over Water and Earth, we give back in drink and nourishment, so that You may continue to look favorably upon us, easing the Summer passage with sweet rains.

Please, accept this Offering, and this Libation, on behalf of those who live and work upon this Land.

Please, render unto us Your bounty, so that we may again pour sweet wine, offer rich meats, and waft incense toward High Olympos, in due time.

May we who know and honor You, Lord entwined within the mystery of life, be always humble, knowing of the truth of our toil.

We live by Your grace, Lord Poseidon, and by the grace of the many Blessed Gods.

And as we give, so do we receive in glorious abundance, Your love, poured out over the Land and Sea.

Hail, Lord Poseidon!
