Personal Prayer to Bast

Hail to You, Oh Bast!
I greet you with shimmering sistra.
Grant me music and happiness, Oh Lady of Joy.
Let your fire burn within me as a light that cannot be contained.
Show me how to shine as brightly as you do,
That my songs might chase away a few shadows from this world.

Hail to You, Oh Bast!
I greet you with the sweetest of incense.
Guide me to emotion, Oh Lady of the Perfume Jar.
Let your fire burn within me as a passion that cannot be quenched.
Show me how to feel and live as completely as you do,
That I do not eat the heart that would beat so strongly for others.

Hail to You, Oh Bast!
I greet you with candles and spices.
Grant me strength and courage, Oh Lady of the Flame.
Let your fire burn within me as a power that upholds Ma’at.
Show me how to protect justice as fiercely as you do,
That I may become your warrior who defends those in need.
