Ogun is a powerful spirit in Yoruba, Santeria, Voodoo and many other sister religions and mystical paths. Practitioners on these paths pray to Ogun because he can clear obstacles to spiritual growth. He can also help with everyday situations like seeking employment and defending against enemies, especially other sorcerers trying to influence your life in a negative way. Here are 3 prayers to Ogun you can use daily to receive his blessings:
1. Prayer for work
This is a popular prayer to Ogun for finding a job or for making more money:
Ogun bless me with fortune
To do more than I was destined
For the good of myself and others
Ogun provide me with opportunity
To multiply and grow
For the benefit of all
2. Prayer for protection
Ogun can help you become invisible to your enemies and prevent negative influences from other magicians. Ogun provides protection from the astral realm, influencing events before they come into existence in physical reality. You can use the following prayer for protection:
Ogun bless me with protection
Of your shield, lance and aura of light
So all enemies revert their gaze
Ogun bless me with refuge in light
By your powers left out of their sight
3. Prayer for spiritual growth
Spiritual growth can be blocked by fear of what happens on the next stage of development. It can also be a case of feeling shame because people around you don’t understand your desire to grow out of your present identity. Ogun has guided thousands of spiritual seekers to greater heights of understanding, love and wisdom.
Ogun release my heart
From black spite holding it captive
Ogun protect my soul
From wicked spirits and ignorance of men
Ogun destroy my temptations
Transcending the limits of flesh and blood
Ogun nourish my hungry soul
With firmament’s sunlit glory
Final Word on Prayers to Ogun
Your prayers are as much about saying the right words as they are about feeling the correct emotions. Don’t just go through the motions as you pray. Instead, try to actually feel the energy that is produced by the words passing through your mind and body. These sensations are important for any spiritual practice.
I recommend choosing one of these prayers depending on your goals and praying in the morning and the evening until you are satisfied with the gifts Ogun bestows upon you.
