The prayers and songs to Obatala They are a powerful ritual performed through prayers dedicated to this Orisha, who is the benevolent father, the one who can help us with any need.
Obatalá is peace and harmony and watches over the order of all men in the world. He is the only Orisha who has both male and female paths. His mercy and goodness is gigantic, majestic.

Next, we recommend several prayers to invoke the great father of all, Baba Obatala:
Prayer for Love
King Obatala you who reign in heaven, I call you,
Your glory is my hope, your faith is mine, and your charity my goodness,
Father of all the holy orishas of the world,

Give me the destiny that you have reserved for me, guide my steps through it,
Make the love of (Beloved's Name) reach me so that it is by my side,
Let me always count on the love of (Name) and may it never go away,

Allow me to count on your protection and protection,
So that I am happy with my beloved, and do not leave my side,
May love be pure as your white cloth is,

Prayer to ward off Enemies
Oh my king of kings Obatala, you who are my spiritual divinity,
Thou mighty king deliver me from all evil, keep theft out of my way,
Avoid lawsuits by my side, do not let wounds reach me,
Do not allow the enemy to reach me, make me invisible in their eyes,
Take care of all the paths that I follow, be my spiritual guide,
Give me your wisdom to face difficulties,
Do not allow anyone to envy my life, nor to lust for it,
Fill me with your strength, to be my shield against the enemy,
Don't let (Enemy's Name) ever get near me,
Dominate it with your sacred mantle and trap it with your white cloth,
That his feet and hands are tied, when he sees himself before me,
He does not allow any harm to come to me, nor to my family,
Send all your orishas, to guard my way,
Clean the paths that I have to walk in your name,
May my enemy (Name of the enemy) be defeated even without fighting,
Master it and make it give up its efforts,
And that your bad thought does not reach me, nor affect because your light illuminates me,
In the name of the mighty king of kings, the great Obatala,
I implore protection for myself and my family, at all times,
At any day and time of the year, let the evil spirits go away,
May the bad influences dissipate, and may my life be full,
With Obatala, to whom I thank and worship,
With a lot of faith, Amen.
I sing to Obatala in Yoruba for protection
