365 Days of Prayer – Day 24

Today I returned to work at another aspect of my life, as a transportation driver. Did you know the Runes can be a prayer? If I regard prayer as a stated intention, and I call upon the power of the Runes to focus my intention, then the Runes become my prayer.

When I first started working as a transportation driver, I realized the cargo I carried was the very most valuable cargo to every child’s relative. I was new to the Runes at the time, so I asked what Rune formula would incorporate my intention to be a safe driver today for my passengers, myself, my vehicle and all beings around us on the road. The Runes did not disappoint! I received RAIHDO, the Journey Rune, DAGAZ, the Day Rune, and GIFU, the Rune of Partnership and working together. Even though that occurrence was several years ago, I still use that before I begin my daily task of driving transportation.

Prayer for this morning: Creator, Let me be a safe driver for my passengers, my self, my vehicle, and all other beings around us on the road today. RAIDHO, DAGAZ, GIFU! Let it be, and so it is!

365 Days of Prayer – Day 12 – Divination as a form of prayer

I am calling Divination a form of prayer because prayer is communication with the Divine, and when I divine for people, I am in communication with the Divine. I am making a point of this today, because sometimes I think people see prayer as a one-way street, not realizing that they, too, can receive communication from the Divine. This idea was made popular a number of years ago in a book called Conversations With God by Neale Donald Walsch. People have invented any number of systems for drawing forth messages from the Divine; among them are the Runes, the Tarot, and the I Ching.

Today I am going to use Rune Divination as my prayer. I reach into my pouch, and draw out….

Raido is about the Journey. It accords with the stars and planets as they journey through the sky and with me, because I have travel plans today. Raidho is also about being in the right place at the right time, which is what happens when I allow prayer to bring me into accord with my Creator. Today I will trust the flow of life to carry me to where I need to be at the right time.
