Odins Prayer Midgard Serpent Futhark Rune Viking Ring
Odins Prayer Midgard Serpent Futhark Rune Viking Ring. This Premium Ring is from our Handcrafted Viking Forge Line.
The Vikings believed that their alphabet, the runes, could do more than just describe the world. They believed that they also had the power, when used correctly, to shape the world. This is why the Norns wrote the fates of men by carving runes onto the bark of the tree Yggdrasil. This particular runic script is a shorthand prayer to Odin.
Vegvisir, the Viking Compass, is first recorded in the Huld Manuscript, compiled by Geir Vigfusson in the 19th century. It depicts the Vegvisir symbol, which means “that which shows the way”, combining “vegur” which means way, with “visir”, which means pointer.

Hail Odhinn, Lord of Asgard,
Warrior and wanderer, valiant and wise,
You to whom all the gods of Asgard look,
Sky Father on the eight-legged steed,
You who traded an eye for wisdom
And ruled a turbulent realm,
Give us the wisdom to accept
The twists and turns of Fate
Even as you surrendered yourself
To the mercies of the Norns.
Protect us, All-Father,
From what harm may come to us.
Lead us through the wilderness
And bring us safely to that great hall
That you reserve only for the brave of spirit.
