Prayer to Yemaya by Zolrack

O mother of the waters!

Great is your power, your strength, and your light.

Great is the love you have for your sons

As is the wisdom with which you govern
From all oceans and seas.

Let my request reach you

And do me the favor

Of removing enemies from my path

And smother my fears.

Let neither sadness enter my home,

Nor grudges nor sorrow.

Let neither sadness enter my home,

Nor grudges nor sorrow.

Let your greatness

Be the greatest wealth you dispense to me.

Hail, Yemaya, lady Yanaina,

Whatever your name,

Whatever the beaches and coasts

Your waters may kiss.

Whatever the incessant rhythm

Of your waves, of your seas,

I entrust in you my faith

As part of God's creation on this Earth

And this is why I ask you

Because I know my request shall be granted

If it is just and well deserved by me.


You will receive this candle. It stands about 7 inches tall! along with my yemaya oil.


Thanks for looking!
