prayer to zeus

A Poem by Hypnos
"

this is a prayer to zeus to protect you when among strangers

"

Great Zeus, Father Zeus, master of Olympos,
bearer of the thunderbolt whose might it is
that draws together the darkening clouds,
well-honored one, kind-hearted god to whom we turn
when we are far from home and family, I call to you.
Zeus, I am alone; I stand in the sphere of strangers.
Friend of the foreigner, friend of the visitor,
friend of those who must rely on the good will
of those unknown, the kindness of the host
to the outsider, I pray to you, lead me
to a place of welcome, bring me safely home again.

What a lovely prayer!
Although I am a Christian, I have always been fascinated by the gods and goddesses of Olympus.
This is a prayer from the heart...

I love prayer poems, but if I were to have written this I would replace Zeus with Jehovah - Many scholars believe that the Greek god Zeus was derived from the Biblical God because reference is given to giants in Genesis 6 - Henceforth the Titans were derived from the Nephilim and giants - 2 Peter 2:4 also mentions Tartarus in the original Greek text, but was translated as Hell. Very interesting history
