Prayer for Asklepios’ Day

Amanda Aremisia Forrester

(To be said on the eighth of the lunar month)

Hail to You, Epidauran!

Snaky God of Kos, the doctor’s inspiration

Son of Apollo, born of fire

Mortal-mothered, Who knows the pain of mortal bodies

Merciful cheater of death


On this, Your sacred day, I offer You (white wine/sweet honey/healing herbs)

Heal me, Asklepios, so I may heal others.
