      Aladura is the Yoruba word for prayer. In Ifa Orisa prayers are generally spoken in a shrine following an invocation to a specific Orisa, or Egun (ancestor). Aladura or prayers that are spoken with ase (spiritual power) are sometimes referred to as Igede or Iwure.


      Ki nle 'ke odi.
      Raise me above all misfortune.

      Kiemaa gbe'mi n'ija kiemaa gbe mi leke isoro lojo gbogbo ni gbogbo ojo aye mi.
      Raise me above all misfortune that might come my way while on this earth.

      Kiemaa gbe 're.
      Always bring me good fortune.

      Bi'ku ba sunmo itosi ki e bami ye ojo iku.
      If death is near help us to avert it.

      Odun tiatibi mi sinu aye ki e bami ye ojo iku fun ara mi ati awon omo mi ti mo bi. Kiamaku ni kekere, kiamaku iku ina, kiamaku iku oro, kiamaku ike ejo, kiamaku sinu omi.
      Avert death for all my children avert death for all those I include in my prayers. May they not die young, may they not die in fire, may they not die in tragedy, may they not die in shame, may the not die in water.

      Ki e maf'foju re wo mi, ki awon omo araye lee maa fi oju rere wo mi.

      Ki e ma awon omo araye gburo, mi pe mo l'owo lowo pe mo niyi, pe mo n'ola, pe mo bimo rere ati beebee.
      Let the world hear of me, know I am rich, know I have honor, know I have prestige, know my children will be good.

      Ki e si'na aje fun me, ki awon omo araye wa maa bami, ra oja ti mo ba niita warawara, ipeku Orun e pehinda lodo mi.
      Open the way to wealth for me, that the whole world will want the products of my work, let death pass me by.

      Ki e da mi ni abiyamo tiyoo bimo rere ti won, yoo gb'ehin si sinu aye ate beebee.
      May I be known as a parent who produces good children, who will stand behind me, follow my guidance and bury me at the end of my life.

      Ki e ka ibi kuro lona fun mi lode aye.
      Remove all obstacles wherever I go in the world.

      Ki e bami ka'wo Iku, arun ejo ofo ofo efun edi apeta oso.

      Ki e jeki ngboki nto ki npa ewu s'ehin.
      Let me live long and see my hair turn white.

      "speak truth, do justice, be kind and do not do evil."
      -Baba Orunmila

      "Cowardice asks the question: is it safe? Expediency asks the question: is it political? Vanity asks the question: is it popular? But conscience asks the question: is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor political, nor popular - but one must take it simply because it is right."
      --Dr. Martin L. King
