Calluna V.

Is it appropriate to ask for English => Greek translations?

I am not, although I once wanted to be, any kind of student of Classical Greek. Or modern Greek. In fact, I can only read the Greek letters which are used in physics, and those, poorly. I'll just put that right out there.

A friend is writing a story which apparently requires a 'prayer' (and I put it in quotes because it's not authentic, it's something she made up) to be uttered in Classical Greek, and even though it's wildly inauthentic, she'd still prefer that the Greek be as good as possible.

Would anyone or ones here be willing to help out with something like that, possibly including arguing over what would be more proper phrasing and so forth? Google Translate doesn't really cut it for this kind of thing.

If that's completely outside the domain of this community, I understand, and will move along.
