Praying for my brother

This morning I awoke early.  My brother, Ashtar-yaton, came downstairs and expressed his fear of what is coming for him today.  His class is visiting the baths weekly on the sixth day in order to practice swimming.  It has been a while since I myself had these lessons, but I don't remember ever been as nervous or afraid as he is.

I gave Ashtar-yaton some encouraging words, then kneeled down on the floor with him to recite a prayer to Yam, who has domain over water.  I hope he will remember it today, though he is still very young and behaves somewhat immaturely.  He often relies on me to pray for him.  So he will be in my prayers today.  May Yam help him swim well and rid him of fear.
