5 Short Prayers to Saint Lazarus to heal us and protect us from Evil

Prayers to Saint Lazarus

We will ask Saint Lazarus for the healing of diseases, mainly those related to the skin, but we also implore you to help us have patience and compliance against physical and mental pain to finally achieve our physical and emotional recovery.  

We must know that Saint Lazarus can be made different requests to ask for health, work, love, because he is merciful. He is also invoked to intercede for some favor with God.

Who is San Lázaro in Santeria?

Saint Lazarus is the patron saint of the sick and the poor forsaken. He is the saint of crutches, who walks withañado by dogs that lick the sores on his legs, so he is also considered a protector of animals.

It is San Lázaro, in syncretism with him Orisha of the Pests of the Yoruba pantheon Babalú Ayé, one of the most powerful cults within the Cuban religious tradition.

Both figures, the saint of Catholicism and the Orisha of the Rule of the Ocha as an African religious expression, converge in a deity to which thousands of Cubans go to fundamentally ask for healing for the body and soul, but also spiritual economic improvements.

Thousands of people arrive every December with offerings, flowers and prayers to the temple located in El Rincón, in the capital's municipality of Boyeros to entertain the saint-orisha and thank him for his blessings.

There they also ask the deity for health and protection, so that it does not allow evil to reach homes.

What is asked ofl saint-orisha? We pray for health and open roads

San Lázaro and Babalú Ayé are not only prayed in the temple dedicated to them, but we also call them from our home, asking for their blessing in the face of life's illnesses and anguish.

Above all, in these times, hit by a pandemic that does not end, many are those who call and invoke them, begging for good health for themselves and their families.

If you want to venerate him, a purple or white candle is lit for them, and we place flowers of the same color, and pray in his honor, always showing passion, devotion and faith.

  • At the end of the article we leave some offerings and works in the name of the saint.

Our prayers and our spirit must always be full of confidence in the power of the deities and we must never go to them with bad intentions, because they will abandon us to our fate.

We ask and pray to Saint Lazarus to:

  • Ask for the poor. As the patron saint of the poor, we ask Saint Lazarus to remove poverty and misery not only from our family, but from the context in which we live.
  • Ask for health. Saint Lazarus is prayed primarily for health for ourselves and our loved ones. He is asked to put an end to illnesses and to keep illnesses and diseases away from our home.
  • Grant prosperity and the money flow. As patron of the poor, Saint Lazarus is asked for his intercession so that our business or employment prospers and gives us profits with which we can support our family.
  • Urgent and desperate cases. Many are those who add to the name of San Lazaro, the adjective "Miraculous" because this saint can help us when we are in a desperate situation with a miracle.
  • Ask for the healing of our dog or pet. Saint Lazarus is held as the protector of animals, mainly dogs, since he is always represented accompanied byañado for these faithful animals.
