Do Witches Pray?

I am often asked “Do witches pray?”  The answer is that yes we pray.  We try to live a life where prayer is the very thing that is the source of our healing work, our spells, our healing of the Earth, and our connection to the magical world around us.  Spells are really just intended prayers.

From the album: “Old Ideas” by Leonard Cohen (2012)
Lyrics:
O, gather up the brokenness
Bring it to me now
The fragrance of those promises
You never dared to vow.

The splinters that you carried
The cross you left behind
Come healing of the body
Come healing of the mind.

And let the heavens hear it
The penitential hymn
Come healing of the spirit
Come healing of the limb.

Leonard:
Behold the gates of mercy
In arbitrary space
And none of us deserving
Of cruelty or the grace.

Together:
O, solitude of longing
Where love has been confined
Come healing of the body
Come healing of the mind

O, see the darkness yielding
That tore the light apart
Come healing of the reason
Come healing of the heart.

O, troubledness concealing
An undivided love
The heart beneath is teaching
To the broken heart above.

And let the heavens falter
Let the earth proclaim
Come healing of the altar
Come healing of the name.

Chorus:
O, longing of the branches
To lift the little bud
O, longing of the arteries
To purify the blood.

Together:
And let the heavens hear it
The penitential hymn
Come healing of the spirit
Come healing of the limb.

O let the heavens hear it
The penitential hymn
Come healing of the spirit
Come healing of the limb.
