St. Charbel Prayer
The third Sunday in July is the holiday that commemorates the life and work of Charbel Makhlouf, better known in the Catholic Church and all his followers at St. Charbel.
In all his life were hundreds of miracles that his faithful acolytes claimed he had achieved and even after his death are many mysteries that still abound about his person that catapult him among believers as one of the saints most revered by all Christians, especially in Lebanon.
His life was at the order of them, and for years he was in charge of taking God’s word and his teachings to all nearby corners, just as he dedicated his life to the monasteries and the protection of the poor and the sick.
At his death, it is assured that months after he was buried his body was exhumed and was uncorrupted, just as it had been buried the first day, but with a clear and oily liquid running through his body that the Catholic Church and believers claim has healing properties.
If you are facing a difficulty, are having problems at work or with money, or want to ask a favor, do not hesitate to resort to one of the St. Charbel prayers below.
😖 Prayer to Saint Charbel for difficult cases
God, our Lord. Father of all beings, King of Heaven, yours is my eternal devotion. You have preached your word in every corner of the planet and with the love you have glorified Saints who, inspired by your life and your miracles, protect believers in earthly space.
Today, I address you, St. Charbel, with deep concern in my heart and mind. I find myself going through a complicated process in my life and the decisions I make feel like they are not on the right track.
I find myself lost and not knowing what to do for what I ask of you, that you may intercede before God for me to clear my thoughts and guide me to the truth.
You have the strength of Christ in your heart, and I beg you to teach me to make the right decisions as you did in your time. It illuminates the path I must follow because the fog hides it to deceive me and lead me towards evil.

You gave them the power and wisdom to honor your word and your teachings, to keep your commandments, and to perform miracles that strengthened the faith of those who still had doubts.

Dear St. Charbel, the saint of the neediest, and martyr and the poor. Your faith in God granted you the status of a saint. You were blessed by the love and spirit of Christ, which has always allowed you to work for the good of those who most need your help.

The world we live in today is undermined by evil, selfishness, and violence so that in the face of disease, evil spirits emerge and want to seize souls.
I beg you to protect all the people in the world. Give strength to those who are sick and have lost hope in their healing, show them God’s way, and fill their hearts with courage.
Many need your love, so please flood their hearts with courage, strength, and gratitude to the Lord.
Saint Charbel mainly protect those I love the most, my family and friends, from any illness or condition they may suffer. Surround them with your protective mantle and guide them always towards the way of healing, the way of God.

What do the ribbons of St. Charbel mean?
The culture of the Catholic Church in Latin America has been very florid, and each people adapts its traditions to its culture and distinctive characteristics. This is why in different countries of Latin America, new rituals or cults are born for the saints most venerated by all.
Of course, Saint Charbel, one of the most beloved on the planet, would not be the exception.
The custom of ribboning the statue of St. Charbel comes from Mexico. Legend has it that one day a faithful believer of the saint came to pray his prayer and make a request, but she did not have a paper where to leave it in writing.
So he bought a ribbon that was in a nearby shop and used it to write his petition, leaving it on the statue of the venerated saint.
As expected, God and St. Charbel had healed her son, and she gratefully decided to leave another ribbon over the statue. The rest is history.
While the colors of ribbons have no special meaning, people prefer colorful ribbons to make their requests and white ribbons to show gratitude for favors granted.
Nothing speaks louder than the enormous amount of white ribbons that continuously surround the statues of Saint Charbel around the world.
