A Prayer for Brighid at Imbolg

A couple of years ago I was living in a small straw-bale house with a wood stove for heat.  Every morning, as I knelt and lit the fire, I prayed to Brighid.  Over the course of several weeks, the words settled into themselves.  Perhaps She told me what to say...

Brighid, help me light this fire.
Flames of heat are my desire.
Protect this house, keep it safe and warm
To shelter us from wind and storm.

I still use the prayer, though not every day, since I'm not heating with wood.  And now I use a variation of it when I give Reiki attunements.

Thank you, Brighid...
