Title: Prayer/Heka for Immigrants and Refugees
Post by: Pairysenu on June 21, 2018, 12:58:47 pm
Em hotep all,

I know many of us are appalled by the current treatment of immigrants and refugees in the United States. While treatment of immigrants and refugees has been increasingly inhumane all over the world, the US actions in recent news is a low that is hitting very close to home for many of us. There are many ways that we, as upholders of ma'at, can work to change these policies, including speaking up, educating others, donations, etc.

But sometimes we can't do that, or feel a need to do something else.

I wrote this prayer to my Father, Set, as something that can be said as a way to use heka to bolster the efforts of people working to enact change around how the US (and other countries) act towards immigrants and refugees. Please feel free to use as you see fit. Sharing is also welcome!

Quote
Set, Lord of Foreigners,
He Who crosses the Path,
The Lord of the Oasis,
May You protect the immigrants and refugees
who are detained, separated, and turned away at the door.
You, Who does not care about the law,
Who grips with great malice,
May You empower the people to resist,
to protest inhumane policies,
to enact change and restore ma'at.
Set, the Roaring and Fighting one,
Who invented the Rebellion,
fill the peoples’ hearts with the desire
to uphold ma’at against the policies
that care not for Your children.
Set, Whose Arm is Powerful,
He Who turns around roaring,
Whose heart is raised among the Gods,
May it become.
Dua Set!

Thank you for looking at this, it means a lot to me to know that my family here in the House feel as I do. No one is illegal.

May ma'at prevail and senebty,

~Pairysenu

Em hotep,
this is a beautiful prayer!
We live in a dark age yet more people is connecting to one another... more people is waking up!
The governments (no exceptions for my country which is now led by the less compassionate individuals who rise invisible walls in the waters of the Mediterranean...) instead seem to go the other way: walls and barriers and hatred spread to cover up the real problems like corruption and poverty... Ma'at will prevail, but we need to stick together and prove that hatred cannot make root in our hearts. We all share the Life, may we live under Ma'at and live in peace.

Bless you all.

I am an immigrant. Through the hand and intervention of Sekhmet, I arrived here in the United States ten years ago last week, after a fraught two year personal, emotional, legal and bureaucratic journey in the UK. Nearly four years ago, I became a United States citizen and I celebrated. I still celebrate, and the daily offering by a tall Sekhmet statue is a small token of my gratitude.

And yet, under this administration, I do not feel safe or secure. There is no reason for me to look over my shoulder, but I do - and I am one of the lucky ones.

I am a beginner here, only just about to do my first Senut, yet I will incorporate Piri’s powerful prayer into my practice. Thank you for the opportunity to work with you all on this.

May Ma’at Prevail!
