IFA Prayer For Rain (In Time of Drought)

IFA Prayer For Rain (In Time of Drought):

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

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
