Hathor is an ancient Egyptian goddess who personified the principles of joy, feminine love, and motherhood. Hathor is commonly depicted as a cow goddess with horns in which is set a sun disk with a sacred serpent.
In Egyptian mythology, Apis or Hapis is a bull-deity, a god of strength and fertility.
John 1:1-5 (ESV)
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
Our Father in heaven,
We thank You for the Word of God, Christ Jesus, in whom is life and through whom all things were made. We proclaim the name of Christ Jesus over the Mississippi Delta.
In Your plague upon the livestock of the Egyptians, You were passing judgment against the fertility gods Hathor and Apis. Triune God, You are the Tree of Life, Breath of Life, Lifeblood, Prime of Life, Light of Life, Path of Life, Wellspring of Life, Way of Life, Fountain of Life, Enjoyment of Life, Covenant of Life, Bread of Life, Author of Life, Spirit of Life, Fragrance of Life, Promise of Life, Gift of Life, Word of Life, Crown of Life, Water of Life, River of Life.
We celebrate Your holy name. Amen.
