"A Dios le Pido" ( ) is the lead single from the Spanish studio album Un Día Normal by the Latin music singer and songwriter Juanes, released in 2002 in Spain and Latin America. In 2006, the song was re-released in some countries in Europe, right after the success of "La Camisa Negra", which charted in almost every European country in the top five. It reached number 1 in twelve countries on three different continents. "A Dios le Pido" spent 47 consecutive weeks on the "Hot Latin Tracks" Billboard.

This track won the Latin Grammy Award for Best Rock Song at the Latin Grammy Awards of 2002, the second year in a row for the singer.

The song is an anthem asking God to bless and protect the singer's family, future children, and close friends. It quickly became a hymn for peace through all of Latin America, particularly because of the line "a Dios le pido que mi pueblo no derrame tanta sangre y se levante mi gente" ("I ask God: may my country not shed so much blood and may my people rise up").
