Trecena Prayer by don Pedro Ixchop
Ancestors of ours, with your whitened spirits you stand before the Heart of the Sky and the Heart of Mother Earth. I ask you not to leave me, not to forsake me, not to abandon me, and not to forget me; to watch over my path, over my acts and over my work. Grant me fortitude; grant me strength, so that I am not weakened in my mission, in my Chak Patan. I will always serve you and honor you with candles, so that you will rejoice with their scent in the Heart of the Sky. Pure spirit, I ask you to guide my path so that I am not mistaken in my journey over the face of this Earth; through the four cardinal points. You elders; parents, grandparents, great grandparents, great-great grandparents of my genealogy, of the lineage of my ancestors, receive this offering that I give you. I know that where you are there is no hunger or thirst, because you are with the Ajaw, Heart of the Sky and Heart of Mother Earth. Rejoice with the scent of this estoraque, rejoice with the perfume of these flowers, with the scent of this ceremony. Watch over me, hear my prayers, and do not leave me. Watch over my path, because you are the spirits of light, guide my hands and my feet, so that I am not confused, so that I won’t stumble with any obstacles in my path. Guide my steps, so that my feet are protected and guided to your presence Ajaw of the Sky. Maltiox, Maltiox, Maltiox, and four times Maltiox.
