My favorite scene from “The 13th Warrior”, showing preparations and prayers of the remaining warriors before the final battle. Muslim prayer: “”Merciful Father, I have squandered my days with plans of many things. This was not among them. But, at this moment, I beg only to live the next few minutes well. … For all we ought to have thought and have not thought, all we ought to have said and have not said, all we ought to have done and have not done, I pray thee, God, for forgiveness.” Viking prayer: “Lo, there do I see my father. Lo, there do I see my mother and my sisters and my brothers. Lo, there do I see the line of my people back to the beginning. Lo, they do call to me. They bid me take my place among them in the halls of Valhalla where the brave may live forever.” FOOTAGE FROM “THE 13TH WARRIOR” © TOUCHSTONE PICTURES, PROPERTY OF TOUCHSTONE PICTURES
