APA Book of Shadows:
Prayers and Invocations
Yes, Pagans pray too! Anytime one speaks to a deity, that is a prayer; calling upon a specific deity is an invocation.
Blessings upon food or other objects, as well as people and animals are included here.
Some common Pagan greetings are: Blessed Be (a blessing upon the person/persons you are speaking to); Merry Meet (glad to meet you); Merry Part (goodbye); Merry Meet, Merry Part and Merry Meet Again (the Pagan all-purpose aloha, hello and goodbye, with implied good wishes and blessings); another phrase you might read or hear is "So Mote It Be", which is a pagan form of saying so be it, gods willing, amen!

O goddess of Moon, water, and Earth; O god of the forests and mountains

you who created all, I pray to you.
