I posted this to my discussion group and it was an interesting topic that I wanted to share more widely:
A teacher once said to me when talking about Wiccan forms of prayer
"Prayer Wiccans don't pray! "
Yet, We do pray, some fo us pray a lot actually. Typically the idea in Wicca is that we are partners of the divine so it's somtimes argued that we don't need to pray. Sure we do spells and we invoke the Gods and Goddesses in our rites but this is not the same as prayer. Yet I have also had the experience the longer that I practice this path the more devotional of a Pagan I become and the more that prayer becomes important to me.
So is devotional practice important to your path? What does this devotional practice look like? If you don't have one why don't you think it's important? If this topic is new to you how might you approach being devotional?
