Do you pray to norse gods

Just curious if you pray to the norse gods. Or you just believed in them and was based on actions and not asking.

I am just curious if people prayed to the norse gods, or if it wasn't a part of the belief.

I pray to them, since they are included in my work.

I wouldn't say I prayed to Loki, I just speak to him as I go through my day.

I normally don't. I believe that the historical use of runes as symbols has led to a magical association of concepts to the runes. I could theoretically use any set of symbols with an occult tradition. But that's simply a personal belief and doesn't have to apply to anyone else.

I usually use my personal ability to channel magic and ambient magic around me to power runes. However I have invoked Freyja before. I cast a spell relating to love and I trusted the goddess of it to carry out the spell in a proper fashion and decide if it's just to cast in the first place. A goddess on your side also greatly boosts the power of a spell (no duh). Maybe my experience with her will be helpful to you.

When I invited her and only her to come to my circle, I was very surprised. As an entity Freyja did not give off a sense of love or lust. She is alien and produces and aura nothing like a humans. It is metallic and yet formless, colorless while making everything else bland in comparison. I am sure she can be a goddess of anything she chooses. I explained my spell and how it worked and why I desired it. I can't tell for sure but she felt patiently intriqued to me. I had the sense that she meant me no harm but when I finished my spell I had a feeling of her encompassing me and smothering my will until the moment I gave her my promised offering (a pink folded paper heart smothered in honey and left in nature), then I felt a deep sense of amusement and pleased indulgence out of nowhere.

I desired a summer romance, being too young and about to go through too many changes to have an enduring relationship. I wanted to a attract a partner who would improve my life through meeting me and whose life would be improved in turn. The spell worked, and it gave me not a little happiness.

That's my experience with the divine, I hope it helps.

Yes I do, and so do most other Asatruar or Odinists. It is, however, different from the praying of say, Abrahamic religions. Where in those religions you often grovel, plead, and beg to your God for whatever it may be, in the the "Norse faith" you often stand erect as an equal to the gods. You do not ask the gods to give you something as well. You often ask for assistance with something you shall do yourself. When you are to ask for something if ever, a sacrifice is necessary which may be something of value or something appropriate with the deity in question. Again this concept of "praying" is something that many do but it is not the same with everyone. This is a commonly accepted belief but there is much more to it than I have written. I would highly recommend to do offerings outside by the way. It offers a good ambiance as well as being appropriate. Hope I helped!

I pray to them, but people sometimes think of praying as asking for something or grovelling, I pray but I don't ask them for things.

I am thinking about praying to Odin, though I am going to learn more about him first.

Both, but in a sense.

I always honor the deities I work with, before my practices.

As another has posted, I'll talk to them throughout the day, usually making a comment when something happens.
