Holy Odu Osarete says:
He who sleeps alone
If he is befallen by illness or evil of any kind
It is only Olodumare who wakes him up
Ifa revelations to Ajoji, the stranger
Who was going to settle in the forest
He was advised to make sacrifice
So that he would come across a helper.
Ajoji, the stranger got to the forest
He had a load
He looked forward only to see nobody
He looked behind him but saw no helper.
This burden has become Almighty Creator’s own
Assist in lifting and placing it on my head
Whoever has no relative
His confidence lies in the heavenly Olodumare.
In the midst of your storms, torments and trials, do not loose hope in prayer to the Almighty. Do not loose faith in prayer to The Ancestors, to the Imole. Do not count how many times that you pray for the same thing. No, dont mock God. If you must count something, count the amount of times the Almighty gives you a new day, to make prayer. Ase.
Pray without ceasing. Pray in the morning and pray in the night. Pray in the happy times, the sad times, the good times, and during times of high anxiety and anticipation. Pray in every condition. Pray in every mind-state.
