The Bond of the Gods - Asatru Prayer
© Michael Schütz - Asatru Ring Frankfurt & Midgard

The Bond of the Gods lies smoothly in the hand -
A palpable link between the Gods and us.
The Thor´s Hammer is its beginning,
A companion in all situations of life.

Black, red and white are the three Norns together;
the sisters of Wyrd watch over the web.
Urd, Verdandi and Skuld these are called;
beginning and end are known to them well.

The rainbow bridge, built by the Gods,
connects Asgard and Midgard.
Heimdall, watching and waking, guards the bridge,
hears the grass grow, keen-eyed like a falcon.

Thor, I greet you, Protector of Man.
Grant me strenght, every day anew.
(Pause a moment to connect.)
Give me perseverance in any situation.
Thank you for your tirelessness.

Odin, I greet you, Eternal Wanderer.
Grant me wisdom as much as I can bear.
(Pause a moment to connect.)
Give me creativity, time and again.
Thank you for your unusual pathways.

Freya, I greet you, Sensuous One.
Grant me love, and your favor.
(Pause a moment to connect.)
Give me passion´s cup filled to the brim.
Thank you for solace and lust in my life.

Njord, I greet you, Lord of Serenity.
Grant me patience and contentment.
(Pause a moment to connect.)
Give me an eye for small miracles.
Thank you for your calmness in life´s turmoil.

Frey, I greet you, Growing One.
Grant me fruitfulness and growth in my life.
(Pause a moment to connect.)
Give me the strenght for new beginnings.
Thank you for your invigorating power.

Frigga, I greet you, Mother and Manager.
Gran me your foresight, and the strenght to lead.
(Pause a moment to connect.)
Give me insight and a hand that brings order.
Thank you for the impetus to act, and for encouragement.

Sif, I greet you, Constant Goddess.
Grant me your tender might which never lets go.
(Pause a moment to connect.)
Give me steadfastness and forbearance.
Thank you for the slow changes.

Community of Gods, I greet you all.
Grant me your favor, today and tomorrow.
(Pause a moment to connect.)
Give me your light so I can shine forth.
Thank you for all your divine gifts.

The circle closes. We are in community.
We are the Gods' children in Midgard,
Men and Gods united in this bond.
We wear the hammer because we are Heathens.


In between (two times for 6 beads, three times for 9 beads):
A child of the Gods I am, whole with your gifts.
I live in your company, today and every day.
You stand by me; I am at home with you.
