Prayers to Brigantia and Maponos

Earlier this month I had a string of coincidences including this post about a new Brighid Devotional leading me to read this and the freely available Clann Bhride Book of Hours.  Brigantia was clearly calling me for it is this name that I use for the being also known as Brighid, Bhride, Bridey and other names.

From this reading I was inspired to adapt one of the prayers for my own use with Brigantia.  I have also been called recently to deepen my relationship with Maponos and the prayers to Brigantia have inspired a similar set of prayers to Maponos.  For me these beings come across as siblings so perhaps it’s not so surprising that deepening my relationship with one leads to a connection with the other.

I offer both of these prayers here.
