Many Pagans and Wiccans pray to their deities on a regular basis, some only during formal ritual, and some not at all. The use of prayer and manner of prayer is as diverse and numerous as the Pagan and Wiccan traditions.

An offering is simply a gift, and it is given not as a trade-off but as a way of showing honor and respect, no matter what the answers to your prayers may ultimately be.
