Euthenia

This is from my old blog, the Geekie Hellenist. Enjoy.

This is the prayer to the goddess Euthenia. I got this from the book ‘In Praise of Olympus: Prayers to the Greek Gods’ by Hearthstone. Hope this helps and thanks for reading.

Blessed Euthenia, from whose hands fall the gifts of the deep earth, the shining bits of fortune, the stores of wealth, the refuge of sufficiency that brings us peace of mind.

In Egypt, bridge of the Nile you were, your image carved on precious metal, burnished by many fingers, shinging the sunlight.

In Greece, child of Hephaistos and Aglaia, goddess of noble name and wide renown, with your sisters, givers of that which brings joy to men and women in this firm-grounded world: from clear-hearted Eucleia, one’s dear repute and honor, the fair fame of a life well lived; from bold Eupheme, the sweet words of praise for work well done and triumph well won; from kind Philosophryne, a seat by the fire, a warm welcome, a hand reaching out in friendship and comfort for a need well known.

And from you, Euthenia, the abundance that feeds body and spirit at once, that enables each child to live and thrive, that brings to us the relief of knowing that what we have will be enough.

Euthenia, compassionate goddess whose blessings we crave, we thank you for all the times we had our fill, for all the times we felt no want, for all the times our hungers have been sated.

Gracious Euthenia, we praise and honor you.
