Today I’m working on filling my prayer jar with requests from the House of Netjer forums. I started the jar with Desh, who has one of her own. She does things slightly differently. You can read about her jar here.
Each of the four sides have the glyph “heka” written on them in gold (UPG: gold is the colour of power).
I write prayers on yellow strips of paper and fold them into stars; after all, everyone knows what happens when you wish upon a star. I use affirmative language (“X will happen”) rather than hopeful language (“May X happen”). I use green ink for “positive” prayers (“X will get that promotion!”) and red ink for “negative” prayers (“X’s hurtful friend will cease their cruelty”), associating green with the powers of growth and red with the powers of destruction.
The jar is sealed and the prayers will be left until the end of the Kemetic year, when I’ll release the prayers (probably by fire), cleanse it over The-Days-Upon-the-Year, and re-consecrate it on Wep Ronpet.
