Prayer to the Ancestors


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.
