Ra- Egyptian Sun God

Ra was the Major Solar Deity of the Ancient Egyptians. He appeared on the Ancient pyramidal stone in the Phoenix Hall of Heliopolis, as a symbol of rebirth and regeneration. Ra's Cult concerned itself with material benefits; health, children, virility, and the destiny of the nation. Ra was the King of the living while Osiris was the king of the dead. Ra was usually depicted in human form with a falcon head crowned with the sun disk encircled by the Uraeus (Sacred Cobra), He also went by Amen/Amun.

We can bring Ra into our lives by asking him to keep us warm with his rays of sunlight and to keep us safe by using the Eye of Ra in our household.

Prayer/ Chant;
You keep us warm with your sun
You keep us safe with your eyes
You are the almighty king of the living
and we worship you Ra, God the Sun
Blessed Be
