IFA Prayer For Rain (In Time of Drought)


IFA Prayer For Rain (In Time of Drought):

We cannot erect a house without linking it to a road

We cannot construct a road without linking it to the market-place

We cannot carry a carving

Without resting it in place

Ifa’s message for Akere, the striped frog

Who would propitiate her mother’s Ori in order to summon the rain

She was advised to offer Ebo

She complied

Here comes Akere, the owner of the voice that summons the rainfall

The day that Akere summons rainfall is the day that rain will fall

    modupe for posting this prayer.
    is it available in Yoruba?
    can you please advise which Odu it comes from?

    many thanks!

    • Ire Ogbo Ato Iya
      The ODU IFA is IRETEOSA and the verse will go like this in Yoruba language:

      A kii ko’le ko ma lee doju u popo
      A kii ye’na ko ma lee d’oja
      A kii gb’aworan gege
      Ko ma fowo o re te ibikan
      Difa fun Akere
      Ti yoo bo’ri iyaa re fi p’ojo
      Ebo ni won ni ko waa se
      O gb’Ebo, o ru’bo
      Akeri o de o, olohun apeji
      Ojo akere ba pe’ji lojo n ro

      May Olodumare guide and guard us. Ase O
