To Harmonia

I call to you, Harmonia, child of love and war,
of Ares who is strong of heart, of courage unrivaled,
of Aphrodite whose might it is that binds us all.
Fair bride of Cadmus, great of Thebes, on your wedding day
did gods and mortals all rejoice, for none yet knew
the doom which would befall you, the cursed ornament,
the ruin of all who would possess it. Harmonia,
great goddess who knows the worth of a peaceful life,
yours is the joy in tranquillity, in friendship
and in understanding, yours is the union
of soul and soul, of two hands clasped, of two hearts joined.
Harmonia, gracious one, I pray for your blessing.

Prayer to Harmonia for a Peaceful Heart

Gentle Harmonia, daughter of Aphrodite
who bore a lifetime of ill fortune with patience
and grace, who knows well how to find peace and comfort
in any circumstances, I pray to you.
Goddess, grant to me a portion of your poise.
Grant to me the strength always to see the good,
grant to me the open heart to take joy
where I find it, grant to me a happy nature.
Bless me, goddess, with contentment and a quiet mind.

Prayer to Harmonia for a Peaceful Home

Blessed Harmonia, child of lovely Aphrodite
and strong-hearted Ares, white-armed goddess whose gift
it is to soothe the soul, whose work it is to ease
the conflicts of men and women, I pray to you.
Fair-tressed bride of Cadmus who knows the worth
of a happy home, Harmonia, I call to you.
Grant to me your favor, O peace-loving goddess;
make my home a haven of tranquility
for all who dwell within. Keep from my door
all who would wish us ill and all who would bring
to us discord and strife. Bless us with friendship
and understanding, and the will to hold together.
