Ishara’s personal prayer of dedication

I, Catherine Ishara,
knowing myself to be formed out of that Great Love
with which the Eternal Mother has shaped all things
and birthed the cosmos from her own dreaming substance,
do pledge myself
to join with my sisters
in restoring the knowledge and practice of Her Mysteries within my community.

Recognising that it is in each one of us, by virtue of our womanhood, to be Her priestess,
I ask that I may deepen in the embodiment of Her red inner fires,
and daily know myself to be that vessel
through which Her womb-blessings are poured upon the Earth.

I ask for the aid and blessings of my Amenta, the spirits of this land, and the ancient priestesses of the temple of Ishtar.

In the Name of Ishtar,
