How can we pray the oration to Oshosi to do justice?
We pray to Oshosi fundamentally for justice and protection. If we suffer an injury, we ask this Orisha to help us and give us strength to face injustice.
We pray to the hunter of the Ocha from a quiet place and in front of a lit candle.
With great faith we inform you of our troubles and tribulations, and we ask for your guidance and support so that justice is served.
We also entrust ourselves to him to cover us with his blessings and to give us his protection in the face of difficult life situations.
We pray this prayer to Oshosi to ask for his help in the face of injustices:
Oh great Oshosi! protector of the persecuted, sorcerer and hunter, you who advise good decisions
We turn to you when we must face the great challenges that life imposes on us
Great Orisha, hunter and warrior, guardian of innocent people and protector of the weak
You who are the thought capable of moving to any time and place, help your child to fight against injustices.
Oshosi, don't let me give in to weakness or lose the battle
I entrust myself to your seven arrows to achieve justice and good fortune
Owner of the mountain, you who are in charge of protecting the fugitives and feeding meat to the hungry, do not let this, your devoted son, lack your protection
Give me strength, Great Oshosi, to face any difficult situation with courage, to come out on top and walk like your proud son on the path of life.
I come to you, owner of justice, so that you listen to my just cause and put an end to the injustice that torments me.
Save me and protect me from those who want to hurt me or cause me harm
Thank you, my King Oshosi, for listening to my prayers, I know that you will not fail me with this request.
