Prayer to Yemaya for love
Oh! Queen mother of waters, great is her power, high is her strength and her light, for her children, as is the wisdom with which you rule all the oceans and seas.
With this prayer, I pray that the lady may come to my request to find love and to turn away from my course, enemies, and barriers and drown in me my fears.
My sorrow and grief did not come to my home! May her greatness be the enormous wealth you can spare me!
Whatever your name is, whatever beaches and coasts your waters kiss, whatever the incessant rhythm of your waves, your seas, my faith in you, I deposit, as part of God’s creation on earth.
That is why I ask you to find someone who loves me. I know that my supplication will be answered if it is just and well deserved.
You will always have my thanks! Hail, Yemaya!
