Bless the Hump: 50 Wednesday Blessings with Quotes & Prayers

By Teresa Trumbly Lamsam, Ph.D.

Welcome to midweek or Hump Day as Wednesday is often called. Psychologists tell us that Wednesdays lack an identity. Mondays are for the blues and Fridays are happy days, but those midweek days get a bad rap for dullness.

But we’re here to help Wednesday become its own special day with a whole article of blessings, quotes, and prayers just for Hump Day. 

Welcome to a midweek boost of inspiration with my handpicked collection of “Wednesday Blessings.” Wednesdays offer a unique opportunity to pause, reflect, and reinvigorate ourselves with positive affirmations.

Let’s embrace the beauty of this day with a hopeful spirit, and let these Wednesday blessings be your guide to a happier, more fulfilling week.

Understanding the Power of Midweek Motivation

“Wednesday,” a word that can evoke a mix of feelings – it’s neither the beginning of the week, nor the exciting anticipation of the weekend. But, what if we saw it differently? In the heart of the week lies Wednesday, a day brimming with untapped potential. It’s a day that deserves its own identity, and it’s about time we give it one.

Embracing Wednesday with positivity can turn it into a pivotal point of the week, transforming our approach to work, relationships, and personal goals. Let’s start seeing Wednesday not as a hurdle to overcome, but as an opportunity to re-energize and refocus.

Tradition and Cultural Significance of Wednesday Blessings

Throughout various cultures and traditions, specific days of the week hold unique significance. Wednesday, often overlooked, actually carries its own set of meanings and associations. In Norse mythology, Wednesday is named after Odin, a figure symbolizing wisdom and insight. In the hustle of our routines, infusing our Wednesdays with these attributes can lead to profound moments of clarity and decision-making.

This connection is reflected in the names of Wednesday in many Germanic languages, like German (“Mittwoch”) and Dutch (“woensdag”).

Others myths, religions, and superstitions surround Wednesday:

  • Roman Mythology: In Roman mythology, Wednesday is associated with Mercury, the god of merchants, travelers, and communication. This connection is reflected in the names of Wednesday in Romance languages, like French (“mercredi”) and Italian (“mercoledì”).
  • Hinduism: In Hinduism, Wednesday is known as “Budhavara,” meaning “Mercury’s day.” It is considered an auspicious day for travel, business, and starting new ventures.
  • Christianity: In some Christian traditions, Wednesday is associated with the betrayal of Judas Iscariot, who betrayed Jesus on the day before his crucifixion.
  • Middle Eastern Cultures: In some Middle Eastern cultures, Wednesday is considered an unlucky day for starting new projects or making important decisions. The viewpoint is likely due to the association with the betrayal of Judas.
  • Celtic Cultures: In some Celtic cultures, Wednesday is associated with the goddess Brigid, a powerful goddess of fire, healing, and poetry.
  • South American Cultures: In some South American cultures, Wednesday is considered a good day for love, marriage, and romance.
