Yoruba/Lucumi prayer to freshen/bless your home

Omi tutu.
Tutu ile
Tutu Laroye
Kosi Iku
Kosi Ano.
Kosi Araye.
Arikú Babawa.
Fresh Water
Freshen my home
Freshen Laroye, the keeper of the crossroads
Let there not be death
Let there not be sickness
Let there be no confusion
Freshness that has no end.

In the morning take a jicara (gourd bowl) of 
water and say this prayer while flicking water
 on the door entry. Take the remaining water 
and throw it out across your doorstep. 
The idea is to freshen your door every day before you go out.
