The Ninefold Blessing of the Allfather

Grace me Father
with the blessings of the breath of life, ond,
with the lips that shape the ond into forms beautiful and terrible

Grace me Father
with the blessings of the Runes,
with the markings that break fetters and heal the sick

Grace me Father
with the blessings of wisdom,
with the discernment and care it brings,
with the faculties to use it properly

Grace me Father
with the blessings of pain,
with the forging and strength it bestows,
with the edge it sharpens

Grace me Father
with the blessings of inspiration,
with the knowledge and comprehension it gives,
with the ways it opens

Grace me Father
with the blessings of joy,
with the openness of receptivity and growth it seeds,
with the way it enlivens life

Grace me Father
with the blessings of power,
with the ability to choose and stand firm,
with the ability to change the world around me

Grace me Father,
with the blessings of intelligence,
with the ability to comprehend and deduce the meaning of things,
to understand the world in all its complexities

Grace me Father
with the blessings of faith,
with the trust and determination to embrace it,
to always reach to understand You and the Worlds better,
in all the ways I can
