At the shrine or altar a candle is lit:
Brigantia, mother of the flame, may I pray with a good fire
from this flame a charcoal block ignited and placed in a burner:
Into the eye of the first one did Taranis blow life,
the frost in the bones of the land melts away,
the flesh of the land flushes with life
as the blood of the oceans runs hot on the shore
Brigantia of the flame;
weave our words into your veil, bear it aloft;
to Taranis the sky father
to the Grey Mare on the hill
and to the Lord in the Wave
Some incense is placed onto the charcoal and an appropriate hymn recited for the deity being addressed. Further incense can be added for further prayer or simply during silent meditation.
Any other offering of food or drink is then made with some appropriate and as yet unwritten words.
