On this National Day of Prayer,
as we watch our rights threaten to be eroded,
I call out to Artemis, protector.
Artemis, you were born in conflict,
with your mother, Leto, making the choice to give birth.
You, in turn, helped deliver your brother.
Artemis, when you were but a child,
You demanded sovereignty:
to choose your own path,
to follow your own passions,
to remain childless,
and not forced into the role of mother.
Artemis, I ask you now to be present.
To stand beside those who fight
for their own right to choose as you did.
You have always defended your followers,
And in this fight I ask that you continue to do so.
Lend your strength of will,
Lend your protection,
Let your precedence sway the minds of those who rule.
Artemis, as you have always been there for me,
be there for us all now.
