Raven Prayer Poster
The Raven is vaunted within native American culture as a wise trickster, whose wisdom can offer much help and whose guile can leave you puzzled. Here, we display the heartfelt prayer of Travis Bowman framed in the artwork of Eliot Alexander, intended to aid you invoking the spirit of this animal and seeking the wisdom and guile when you need it in your life. Printed on an 8 1/2" by 11" parchment poster, the prayer reads:
I call on your wisdom.
Teach me your tricks of thought and memory.
Lend me your eloquence
To speak of the hidden mysteries.
Help me use the tools around me to attain my goals,
And if I do not find those tools,
Teach me to craft them.
Help me fly with agility to where m most needed.
Guide me in the ways of the sentinel.
Teach me to sing for love and
To return to those places where it has lived before.
I ask for your strength
In the face of intimidationg.
I ask for your wings
As I dive into darkness and return with knowledge.
I ask for your magic Raven,
I call on thee.
