Prayer to Manannan Mac Lir

One of the most important duties of the modern druid is to be a Guardian to Mother Earth. I am very fortunate to live close to the beach, but it means that I see daily the impact humankind has on our oceans. This prayer was born out of my rage and “Weltschmerz” I feel when I see what we do to the environment. When our oceans die, we die. It is as simple as that.

Prayer to Manannan Mac Lir

Manannan Mac Lir

Hear your priestess’s call

Accept my offerings and

Give me strength to right the wrongs which are done

To the ocean and its creatures by humankind


Take my tears to cleanse the polluted water

Take my grief to create your mists and chase away the poachers

Take my rage to fuel your waves to sink the killer boats


Hear my oath while I lay on the wet sand

Watching the tides bring humanity’s garbage

Day in and day out

I will protect what is yours

By sea land and sky I swear.
