Pandemic Protection Prayer: “Please Doctor help us now in 2020 for a great chaos is breaking out all over the world. Please Doctor keep us protected from the pestilence invading our minds and bodies. Deliver us from this plague, famine, and war. Please Doctor have mercy on us, spare us from getting sick and heal those who are sick. Withdraw from us this plague and grievous sickness through your great healing powers. Come to our aid now, in the midst of the global spread of the coronavirus, that we may experience your healing love. Heal those who are sick with the virus. May they regain their strength and health through quality medical care. In place of our society, give us your peace. AMEN.”
Message from Botanica San Lazaro 2020: Stay strong during this time of panic. Please continue to pray daily and clear your mind. Do not let the outside chaos turn your mind into chaos. We are here for inner peace.
Saint Jude Prayer: “Glorious apostle Saint Jude, you are in Heaven contemplating divine peace, absorbed in a thousand delights that constitute your eternal happiness. Hear my prayers for the sick members of the our community and for all who are in need. Amid mental and physical suffering may they find consolation in your healing presence. Show your mercy as you close wounds, cure illness, make broken bodies whole and free downcast spirits. May these special people find lasting health and wellness. Transport me to a place where I can be in your presence to find healing, wholeness, and peace. Amen.”
Saint Jude is depicted wearing green because green symbolizes wellness, healing, hope and renewal. Just as in spring when foliage and flowers spring up with renewed life, we turn to St. Jude, our Patron of Hope, in difficult or seemingly hopeless times. During the Great Depression and World War II, thousands of men, women, and children attended novenas at the shrine of Saint Jude causing devotion to the “patron saint of hopeless causes” to spread throughout the country.
Saints are spiritual beings who have been tasked with maintaining this Earth, watching over the affairs of humanity and each has dominion over a portion of nature. Each Saint is identified with natural forces as well as with human interests or endeavors. These Saints are mediators between humanity and the Supreme Being.
Pray to Saints because they are already in heaven, and they can intercede for you. In moments of anxiety, you need to hope and believe in something that helps you recover faith and maintain peace in your life.
A prayer is said before the candle as it burns. When the candle is first lit this prayer is to ask for what you desire or what help is needed in your life. Lighting a prayer candle as a way to leave the old behind and begin a new life just as if you were born again, the sense being akin to the resurrection and it leaves your sins behind you, giving a new aspect and a new look into your life, without being burdened by your old sins and you old mistakes.
Prayer is the master key. Prayer is the key to all earthy problems. Praying is more than just mere words, it myst come from deep within you, from you very soul. The exercise of prayer requires tranquility and peace of mind. The essence of prayer is faith, it is your motive power that comes from within you and its movement must be directed upwards to where all earthy favors come from.
Anyone can make their prayers come true. This is as sure as the rise of tomorrow’s sun. If you knew how you would feel if your prayer were answered, and if you could realize, consciously, just how you could awaken such a feeling in yourself, you will travel a long way toward learning how to make your dreams come true. Imagination is the beginning of creation. You must imagine what you desire and believe it to be true. True prayer can come only from within yourself.
