King of all kings I call you
Your kingdom is in heaven
Your glory is hope
Faith and charity are your bonanza
Father of all the saints in the world
Father of all the good, of all the white
Your emblem is peace.
Always give me your wisdom to understand what I cannot.

Be you, father Obatalá, the one who gives us the reasons to laugh
Great King Obatala

And you make it prosper.

You who multiplied only one
In two hundred people
Multiply my happiness and blessings
In a thousand reasons to live immersed in complete happiness.
Woman and man of the world
I ask you to be the one to protect me
Of all the people who dare to do some kind of evil
Let the eyes be full of envy
Illuminated with your brilliance and purity
So that it gets away from me and disappears
I ask you for the necessary light so that I can return
to see my paths illuminated with the purity of your white light
be your father who opens my ways
to be able to move towards a future
of progress and prosperity.
I believe in you father of all white fabrics.
I beg you to help me keep all my enemies away from me
And from my house,
I ask you to help me good fortune
To all the roads illuminated by your munificence
Great saint of the world
Man and woman,
Creator of all good and bad things.
Albino king and queen,
Owner of purity and of all vigilantes.
Father Obatalá grant me what I ask of you,
I am your son, and I know that you will have mercy on me,
give me your help and protection,
and solve my problems and needs.
May this prayer bring you much calm, tranquility and the health you need in your life.
