Elegua, guardian of the crossroads and opener of paths, I humbly come before you, seeking your guidance and blessings. You who hold the keys to opportunities and destiny, I ask for your intercession in my journey.
As I stand at the crossroads of life, I feel the weight of uncertainty and obstacles before me, Elegua, please clear the way, remove what blocks my progress, And open doors to new opportunities and possibilities.
You who are the trickster and the wise counselor, Grant me the wisdom to make the right choices, To recognize opportunities when they arise, And to navigate life's twists and turns with grace.
Elegua, I trust in your wisdom and your love, As I walk the path of life, lead me toward the light, Guide my steps, protect me from harm's way, And help me seize the opportunities that await.
I offer my gratitude and devotion to you, Elegua, For your blessings and your presence in my life. Amen. (or your preferred closing)
