Pagan Blog Project: F is for Favorite

"Which is your favorite god?"

I am pretty tolerant of questions from folks who are not pagan or not polytheistic, but that one always stumps me.

There are gods I am closer to than others, yes.

There are gods I relate to more easily than others, yes.

There are gods I am more comfortable with than others, yes.

But a favorite? That's like asking me which is my favorite child--I really, truly, genuinely do not have one. The very concept makes no sense. Which is my favorite thing, air or water? Food or sleep? The sea or the sky?

No favorites here.

I think I will always answer Aphrodite because of all the myths speaking so strongly to just how badly things can go when Aphrodite is slighted. :D

I have one question. When you pray to Aphrodite, do you tell her of your day, life things going on at the moment! Suchlike a Christian would? Or do you keep your prayers more formal, suchlike your prayers on underflow? I would like to know, because I would like to begin praying but do not want to be rude to said Gods. Thanks.

Re: Help
I do have daily devotions where I use more formal prayers, but if I am just talking to the gods I am more informal, like "Hey, such and such happened today and I'm thinking of doing thus and so, what do you think?" It varies with the god (I would probably speak more formally Hera than with Aphrodite, for example) but yes, you don't need to have a lot of structure. In my experience, speaking from the heart is always appropriate.
