Prayer to Amadioha



Nna Amadioha, god of our forefathers and foremothers: We come before you with clear consciences, unburdened hearts and clean hands.

We pray that you help us to remember that good judgement and good character is more valuable than any amount of money or power, and that with your help, we can work to develop both.

We humbly ask that we may never turn a blind eye to injustice, for we know that injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. May we work to right what has been wronged, and fix what has been spoiled.

Give us the wisdom to know the right thing to do, and the courage to actually do it. Unbind our lips so we may speak the truth in this world of illusions.

May your lightning strike fear in the hearts of those who do evil, and your thunder remind us of the collective power we have inside us.

Ya Gazie! (May we prosper)
