There are many ways to pray but when it comes to inviting ancestors the story is different. People tend to confuse praying to your ancestors with Christianity. When praying as a Christian it is easy to call whatever you need from God without even kneeing to the ground.
It takes your heart alone to ask everything that you need in life. As for asking from ancestors the are certain things that need to be done. One has to know were to start and were to finish. First thing to do is to light up a candle and Mphepho.
You do not need to know their graves and so on, those people know about you when if you don't know about them. All you do is light up these two a candle and Mphepho praying an African prayer. Most people who grew up from the rurals will understand. In Sesotho we say "Tlatla Macholo, Modimo e motjha rapela wa kgale".
Your prayers will path a way in your life, without even slaughtering an animal. All you need is to know how to pray.
