Igbo Prayer

We honor and greet Our Chi (God within us)
We honor and greet Chineke (Creative aspect of God)

We honor and greet Ani (Earth Mother)
We honor and greet Igwe (Sky Father)
We honor all the Alusi who stand around to guide and guard us

We honor the Alusi of the four points, Eke, Orie, Afo, Nkwo

We pray they never abandon us or get weary of us
We pray we are always able to access them
We honor and greet our sacred ancestors
We call upon the ones who lived and died for our freedoms

We pray their memories will not be forgotten
We pray they forgive us for forgetting them a lot of the time

We pray they remain with us for the healing of our homes,

communities, and the planet
We greet the elemental life in the four elements of fire, air,

water and earth
We offer thanks for their efforts in healing the planet

We pray we can learn to work with them in healing our planet

In conclusion
We pray for all humanity, all plant life, all animal life and in fact

all matter to awaken
We pray for heaven and earth to meet and dance in perfect

harmony
Now and forever more
Ise!
