What is a prayer for Mabon?
A prayer for Mabon is the easiest and more practical way to celebrate and honor this special pagan holiday. It’s beginner-friendly so you don’t need to be a witch to do it!
How does it work?
A prayer for Mabon can help you connect with this moment of transition, changing seasons, and getting ready for the upcoming next phase with Samhain.
Why should I honor Mabon with a prayer?
If Lughnasadh is the beginning of the harvest, representing the sacrificial aspect, then Mabon is the end of the harvest, its completion, but also the second harvest after that of cereals, fruit, and grapes. Do you know what Mabon is? It is a Celtic anniversary, the 21st of September, or the autumn equinox.
In ancient times it was celebrated by pagans and non-pagans, but this custom has been lost and now only the Wiccans remember it. This is all well and good, but what if you are a Christian?
It is not a question of worshiping the Mother goddess or another god but only of meditating on the changes, on the new season that is coming, and therefore of finding a way to feel good about yourself and to reflect. This is the day dedicated to balance: day and night are the same, a portion of good food for thought.
By dedicating this day to reflections on balance, on the rest to which nature begins, on the way in which we approach our commitments, and on our projects for the winter, many things can be done. This is a night to honor the balance of God and Goddess is the harmony of matter and spirit. Both the spiritual life of the next world and the physical life of this world are celebrated.
It’s the time to put an end to old projects and prepare for the rest period. Magical work should be about protection, prosperity, security, self-confidence. Mabon is considered a time of mystery. Time to honor the elder gods and the Spirit. The deities are thanked for their gifts, hoping for the return of abundance.
What is the best time to do it?
Mabon’s night has equal hours of light and dark so it’s the perfect time to do your prayer for Mabon. If you can’t do it on that very same night, you can do it on a night following Mabon when you can relax and commit to a few hours of dedication and a moment of heartfelt prayer.
How to prepare for a prayer?
These steps below aren’t a must, but they’ll help you make your prayer work.
Light up an orange or a brown candle
Practice kindness with gifts
Give baskets of autumn fruit to friends, decorating them with autumn leaves and acorns. You can even make an apple pie and/or a pomegranate pie for a delicious and traditional treat!
Decorate and celebrate
Have dinner with friends and decorate the house with baskets of colorful autumn leaves or wreaths and ears of wheat. You can also pick up some leaves and put them to dry between the pages of a book.
Connect with nature
Take a walk in the woods and in the countryside to relax and meditate outdoor.
Thank Mother Earth and burn some herbs
Leave part of our banquet to Earth to thank her. Burn aromas of pine, sage, hibiscus, and rose petals also used to decorate the table as long as they are fresh. Its herbs are wheat, grape and oak leaves.
Prayer for Mabon
“Mother Earth, thank you for being my root, my anchor my strength
Help me maintaining rooted and centered home, health, work and well-being.
Thank you spirit of the air
For your knowledge and understanding.
Thank you spirit of the fire for energy

which helps to maintain calm and balance emotion.
Might this night be the night where the spiritual and the mundane world reconcile

What should you do after prayer?
After prayer, you can let the candle burn out completely or you can use it for more prayers, in case you decide to make it like a part of a daily ritual. As always, this is your call! Leave the offerings to the spirits and for the earth overnight and try to spend more time reflecting on how you feel and who you would like to be.
This is the perfect time for some introspection and there is nothing bad about it! Don’t consider it selfish, it’s the ultimate act of love and kindness! Go for it while the Mabon’s energy is at its peak!
