These wallet-sized laminated cards contain a prayer of protection and blessing on one side and Pentagram with American flag on the other. Created by Circle Sanctuary in March, 2003, these cards are available free of charge to those serving on active duty and to their family and friends who keep altars of support for them.
Religious communities all over the world are rallying in support of their Military personnel being deployed to the Middle East. Most agree that in spite of the wide range of differing opinions regarding this war, those serving in the military still need and deserve the spiritual support of their communities at home.
Pagans from many paths and places serve in the US military and are currently among those being deployed. In response to this, Circle Sanctuary is making available Military Pagan prayer cards for those Pagans on active duty. The prayer card includes a graphic and an Elemental blessing on laminated cardstock, and is about the size of a driver's license or credit card, so as to be easily transported in a wallet.
If you, or someone you know is currently on active duty, and you would like to obtain a card for yourself or them, please contact the Circle office:
(608) 924-2216 or firstname.lastname@example.org
P.O. Box 9, Barneveld, WI 53507
There is no fee charged for these cards. However, donations to help Circle Sanctuary cover the costs of producing & mailing these cards are welcome and tax deductible in the US. Make checks/money orders payable to Circle. Credit card donations are also accepted and can be made below through our secure online payment system.
Military Pagan Blessing
In this place far from my home and my family,
I honor you and call upon you.
Powers of Earth,
Strengthen my physical body and the bodies of my peers and commanders.
Powers of Air,
Keep me vigilant at my post,
My mind clear and sharp.
Powers of Fire,
Give me courage,
Even when my duty is hard or bitter.
Powers of Water,
Grant me restful slumber and good dreams after a long duty day.
Powers of Spirit,
Balance me in honor, nobility, and spiritual purpose.
Powers of Goddess & God & Their Unity,
Be with me & around me, bless me & protect me as I carry out my mission.
So Mote It Be.
