Morning Prayer

My mum gave me 'The Book of Prayers' by Renuka Narayanan (I suspect that every year I remain unmarried, she worries increasingly about my godlessness). It's a compilation of hymns & couplets from nearly every religion in my knowledge.
Found this one to be quite pretty and empowering:

Namastestu maha maye (Hail, great goddess)
Sri peethe sura pujite (Seated on your mystic throne)
Shankh-chakra-gadha haste (Holding conch, discus and mace)
Mahalakshmi namostute (Mahalakshmi, we salute you)
~ Sri Lakshmi Ashtakam

Also, try telling her she's dressed in a manner that's just 'asking for it'....

If She Carries Mace, So Can We
