Like when Zuko yells at lightning to strike him (but ideally more in the sense of insulting a deity). Imagine standing on top of a cliff during a thunderstorm, clenching your fists and and screaming at the top of your lungs "ARE YOU WITH ME!? WHERE ARE YOU, GOD!?" toward the sky. Kind of like "invocation," "appeal", or "curse", but definitely none of those.
Example sentences: "The cultists recited a ritual _____ in unison" "Desperate, the beggar collapsed to his knees and ____'d at his luck" "It was suddenly very clear now--he had been tricked! He _____'d at Loki for his cruel deception."
I'm looking for an action more emotionally charged than "curse"
I'm open to the possibility of a compound word or phrase being what I'm looking for, but should be decently idiomatic.
