Santa Muerte Blanca’s Prayer

Muerte-Blanca_6

Santa Muerte de mi corazón,

Niña Blanca,

Ampárame bajo tu manto

 Y otórgame tu bendición

Para que el amor y la dicha siempre lleguen

 Señora Mía dame tu fuerza

Para que todo lo que me rodea se armonice.

Para que la fortuna y la suerte me sigan siempre.

 Que todo lo malo se retire

 Que todo lo bueno venga.

 Te lo pido por tu poder y fuerza sobre todas las cosas vivas.

Eye
Amén.
