Prayer to the Ancestors
I ask those who came before me.
The one’s who gave of their love,
their talents and their knowledge .
I ask you, my beloved Ancestors to be present in my heart.
To be there when I bring forth my gifts, that you gave me.
Such valuable and precious gifts they are,
A continuum of love and understanding,
that has been passed on from generation to generation.
I give thanks to you for your kindness, your wisdom
and strength that now lives on in me.
My connection to you brings me comfort.
And even though I may not know you now,
we are family, and our connection will never die.
I thank you my beloved Ancestors,
it is because of you that I am alive.
