Biddings

Prayers, or biddings, are an essential element of a blót. A bidding is a call to the gods, ancestors, and spirits. It is a way in which we express our gratitude for their aid and speak words of praise in their honor. It is also an act of devotion that allows us to rebuild the bonds of troth. This page contains a list of articles about or containing biddings I’ve written. Feel free to use or modify them as needed.
