Prayers for deceased
« on: May 16, 2017, 03:46:38 am »
Em Hotep everyone

I was wondering if anyone has a nice prayer that can be said for those that passed on. I am specifically looking for a prayer for dogs, but even if you have one for a human I can adapt it. Thank you so much.

Here is a short one:

as sure as the sun rises in the east and sets in the west,
my dear friend has been laid to rest
they will be missed from this earthly plane,
but somehow, someway, I will see them again
I wish them a safe journey,
and remember fondly all the things they did for me.

(They/them can be replaced with 'you' to make it more personal, too.)

I engage a lot with my akhu so I do have prayers I say to acknowledge and call Their attention forth for interaction.

You can say something very simple or elaborate.  I'd light a candle for honoring pets who have passed on and think of the prayer as less of a statement you're making with a lot passion and more of an actual interaction with them beyond the grave.  Say it as though they're right there.  It will really help you connect with them.

You could say, "Hey x, I've left you some food and water.  You can come eat now and stay if you like".  Something like that.

Em hotep Lira,

When my fur babies passed away I had each one of them cremated and I've kept their ashes with me so that I can talk to them any time that I want to as well as put out little bits of offerings of the liquid and food they loved in life. 

The House does have a 70 day prayer that is said for the deceased (human) 70 days after they have passed from this world.   I have used parts of that prayer for my animals when they passed away.

As mentioned prior, any type of prayer is a good one.  It does not have to be something perfect, but rather a prayer is your own heart speaking so you make it what you want it to be or say.   You can offer the prayer and any offerings up to the deceased pet and if you wanted to ...to the Name that was the protector of that particular animal (if there was a God associated with that type of animal).  I've done it for my cats and then offered it up to Bast for example and my dog to Yinepu as well for their protection in the west.

Hope that helps.
