Prayer for Inspiration
The spirit of thoughtful fellowship
The spirit of truth spoken with courage
The spirit of shared vision
The spirit of community rising from common practice
It is to this spirit of ADF I sing praise
Inspired by this spirit, let us gather in the grove.
Inspired by this spirit, let us honor the Kindreds.
Inspired by this spirit, let us pray with a good fire.
Invitation to the Ancestors
All you who watch from the halls of the blessed,
remembering your time in the sun;
All you who now share the feast ofthe dead,
thirsting for what we now pour;
All that we are, you have been,
All you have been, we remember.
Honored dead, drink deep and accept our sacrifice.
Affirmation of the Blessing
Gifts well given and gifts well received
we strengthen the ties between us.
Our offerings accepted and blessings bestowed,
Thus is our kinship honored.
A gift for a gift
and ghosti upheld,
we will carry this magic within us.
