What is the best time to do it?
The night between April 30th and May 1st, Beltane is celebrated and it’s the best time to pay homage to the beginning of the season of light. That night is the time of the year in which light and life expand at their best and in which the energies of life show themselves in a total way.

How to prepare for a prayer?
These steps below aren’t a must, but they’ll help you make your prayer work.
Make some offerings
If you want to custom your altar and do offerings keep in mind that the foods to celebrate Beltane with are honey, oatmeal buns, and cheeses.
The reason is to be found in the symbols for the Beltane altar, the cow and the bee are the images of the Goddess and create the miracle of milk and honey.
Do a ritual
Create a magic circle, greet the 4 elements and the 4 cardinal points. Light a red candle and a green candle. Go through this to purify yourself, meditate on fertility and new life, and ask what we want to fertilize.
It would be a ritual to do as a couple to celebrate the magical couple within us: Oberon, the king of the elves, and Titania, queen of the fairies.
Let the candles burn and live fully and joyfully in anticipation of Litha, on the summer solstice.
It is celebrated by lighting fires to purify people and livestock as a sign of good luck. It is customary to put a pole in the middle of the lawn and tie colored ribbons to keep at the end. We dance and sing, and in the countryside, people went from farm to farm bringing food and wine to celebrate the triumph of Nature.
The energies that are renewed are also our energies, so we must celebrate by setting up and giving life to new projects, fruitful changes, and children. The pole that was planted in the lawn or in a clearing and around which it danced is a phallic symbol and the circle around the womb welcomes it and encloses.
Another way to get ready for prayer is to hang red ribbons, the color of passion, from hawthorn bushes to attract love, healing, or luck.
Fire purification (with caution!)
It is propitiatory to light two small fires and pass through them. In order to purify oneself by trying to feel the energy that fills our bodies and our spirit. Do this with caution!
Cast a fertility spell
If you are trying to get pregnant unsuccessfully, this is your chance to cast a fertility spell! An abundance spell is another great option for this time!
