In this section I am going to incorporate a series of prayers that I hope will be useful to you, since sometimes it is necessary within the rituals, to be able to add them, in order to give more intensity and potentiality to our desire.
Thus, for example, in some work rituals, addressed to St. Pancras, the ideal is to address him, directly, through his particular prayer. The same applies to other saints or entities.
Or simply if you want to address a saint or any entity in a particular request, even if it is not through candles, but simply a prayer from the interior of your heart to the saint of your devotion.
I have tried to put as much variety as possible, touching on various themes, but of course, there will always be one that I have not thought of. So if you need a particular prayer, do not hesitate to ask me. I will try my best to find it for you.
I need not tell you that every prayer is a request, a plea, to the entity of your devotion, so look for a place where you are quiet, relaxed, without noise and in complete peace. A little music, a little incense, perhaps a candle to give a little light… and then let your heart speak.
PRAYERS FOR WORK AND MONEY PRAYER FOR WORK
St. Jude Thaddeus, intercessor in every difficult problem, get me a job where I can fulfill myself as a human and where my family does not lack enough in any aspect of life. May I keep it in spite of adverse circumstances and people. May I progress in it, always improving my quality and enjoying health and strength. And that day by day I try to be useful to those around me. I associate your intercession with the Holy Family, to which you are related and I promise to spread your devotion as an expression of my gratitude for your favours. Amen.
PRAYER FOR FINANCIAL DIFFICULTIES
Lord, who has created the whole universe, and has endowed the earth with sufficient riches to feed all the men who dwell therein, come to our aid.

Help us, Lord, for our salvation can only come from honest and good men, Instill in the hearts of our fellow men a sense of justice, honesty, and charity. Take care of our family that trustfully expects from you the daily bread. Strengthen our bodies.

That holy shirt in which your son was wrapped is the same one I am wearing, and by it I am to be free from prisons, from evil tongues, from sorceries and spells; and for this I commend myself to all that is angelic and sacrosanct, and the holy gospels protect me, for first the son of God was born. May you come down to me, as the Lord has thrown down his enemies on the day of Easter. Whom you trust is the Virgin Mary and the consecrated host to be celebrated with the milk of the virgin breasts of the most holy Mary. Therefore I ask you to see me free from prisons, not to be wounded, not to be run over, not to have my blood spilled, not to die of sudden death, I also entrust myself to the holy Veracruz.

PRAYER FOR THOSE WHO LIVE ALONE
Lord, draw near to all who live in solitude
And whose heart is about to fail.
It is so hard to live in abandonment, without a mother, a wife and children!
It’s so humiliating to know that others are bothered with their sorrows!
It revives those who live in the desert that their selfishness creates around them.
And when the leaden evening oppresses her breast;
When their burning temples strike hard
When the rope or the gun obsesses them like a
Nightmare, but also as a possible release
Ah! in such a dreadful dryness send them the freshness and tenderness of your comfort.
I invoke the sublime influence of the Eternal Father to obtain success and advancement in all the affairs of my life and to smooth out all difficulties in my path. I invoke the help of the Holy Spirit, so that the good star may light up my path and frighten away the bad shadow that follows me.
I call upon the God on high, so that my house may prosper, although my business and person may receive a message of good luck sent by Divine Providence.
O Great Occult Power, I implore your supreme majesty to turn me from danger, at the right time, and that my path may be illuminated by the Lighthouse of Fortune. I shall receive the infinite blessings of Heaven.
I believe in God the Father Almighty. Amen.
SPIRIT OF GOOD FORTUNE
Oh, mysterious spirit that directs all the threads of our life! Come down to my humble abode; enlighten me to obtain through the secret vagaries of the lottery, the prize that will give me fortune and with it the happiness and welfare that my soul will receive; observe my intentions which are pure and healthy and are directed to the good and benefit of me and of mankind in general. I do not ambition wealth to show myself selfish or tyrannical; I desire money to buy me the peace of my soul, the fortune of what I love, and the prosperity of my hope. Oh! Sovereign Spirit, if you think that I should spend yet many days on earth, suffering the discomforts that destiny is repairing to me, your will be done; I resign myself to your decree but bear in mind my sound purposes at this time when I invoke you the need in which I find myself and if it is written in the book of my destiny, may my vows which are expressed in all sincerity in my heart be satisfactorily attended to. Amen.
PRAYER OF FORGIVENESS
How many times will I forgive my brother? I will forgive him, not seven times, but seventy times seven times. Here is a saying of Jesus that will attract your attention and speak loudly to our hearts. Look at those words of mercy of creation so simple, so summarised and so great in its aspirations that Jesus gives to his disciples, you will always find the same thought. And he answers Peter “You will forgive but without limit. You will always forgive whatever offense is committed against you; you will teach your brothers that forgetfulness of self that makes them invulnerable to attack, bad acts and insults: you will be gentle and humble of heart, never measuring their meekness; you will finally do what you wish the Father to do for you.
Forgive, be indulgent, charitable and even lavish with your years. Give, for the Lord will give; forgive, for the Lord will forgive; get down, for the Lord will lift you up; humble yourselves, for the Lord will make you sit at His right hand.
Spiritists, never forget that both in word and deed, forgiveness of wrongdoing should not be a vain word; if you call yourselves Spiritists, be so: forget the evil that may have been done to you, and think only of one thing, the good that you may do. God knows what dwells in the heart of each one, happy, for he who can fall asleep every day saying: “I have nothing against my neighbour”.
PRAYERS FOR THE ANGELS
O benign Angel of my guardian, my tutor!
Teacher, guide, tutor, defender and most wise counselor and most faithful friend of mine,
to whom I am entrusted by the goodness of the Lord from the point of my birth,
Until the last hour of my life,
How much reverence I owe you, knowing that you are present where I am!
And how much devotion I must serve you, for the love with which you look upon me!
And what great confidence I must have in having you by my side, for my defence!
Well, show me, Holy Angel:
Protect and guide me on the right and safe way to that holy city and do not allow
May I do in your presence something that offends you and that I would not dare to do without shame in front of another man like me;
Represent my desires and misery to the Lord,
Give me the remedy for them,

PRAYER FOR THURSDAY
Enlighten my eyes with the true light, so that they will not remain closed in eternal sleep, for fear that my enemy may say that I have overtaken him. As long as the Lord is with me, I will not have to fear the wickedness of my enemies, O sweet Jesus, keep me, help me, save me. May the name of Jesus alone bend every knee, both heavenly and earthly and hellish, and may every tongue publish that Our Lord Jesus Christ enjoys the glory of His Father. So be it. I know perfectly, and I do not even doubt it, that on the day I shall call upon the Lord at that very moment I shall be saved. Most sweet Lord Jesus Christ, beloved Son of the great living God, who has done so many and such great miracles by the power of your most precious name alone and has abundantly enriched the poor, since, before Him and by virtue alone, the blind saw, the deaf heard, the dumb spoke, the lepers were healed, the sick were healed and the dead were raised; For as soon as such a sweet name was uttered, the ear felt enchanted and rejuvenated, and the mouth filled with all that is most pleasant in this world, and at the mere utterance of it, all temptations, even the worst, disappeared; all demons fled and all diseases were cured: All the quarrels and struggles of life, both of the flesh and of the devil, were fought over, and the soul felt itself filled with all the heavenly gifts; For whosoever shall call upon the holy name of God shall be saved; this holy name, yea, spoken by the angel before Jesus was conceived in the womb of the holy Virgin, shall be praised and exalted above all forever. Amen.
Oh, sweet Name! The name of Jesus, the name of life, health, joy, goodness, love; a precious, joyful, glorious and pleasant name; a name that strengthens the sinner; a name that saves, leads, governs and preserves everything. By the power of this most sweet Name, may the devil be driven away from me. Enlighten me, Lord, for I am blind; dispel my deafness, straighten me, for I am lame; restore my speech for I am dumb; cure my leprosy, restore my health and, in a word, resurrect me, for I am dead. Give me life and encircle me everywhere that I may be buckled and fortified with that Holy Name living always in voice, praising and honouring you, because everything is due to you and you are the most worthy of glory. Most pious Jesus, grant me the blessings and tranquillity that your chosen ones enjoy, and make the devil flee from my side; cure me of the sicknesses that I suffer, physical and moral, and I will bless your name with the same faith that I have now, not knowing if I am worthy of your mercy; You will always be in my heart, even if you do not pity me, and I am sure, with my worship, even if you do not hear me, if I do not rejoice at least I will not suffer, because the devil will run away from me for not listening without anger and grief to my prayer to you, full of humility and love. Goodness as holy as yours will not fail to extend to this sinner, who begs and pleads with all his soul, heart and life, to take him under your protection and shelter so that he may be free from temptations so that he may live and die in your Holy Grace. Amen.
PRAYER FOR THE SABBATH
Jesus, Son of a Mother, Saviour of the world, may the Lord be merciful, sweet and favourable to me; may He remind me of a healthy and upright spirit to render Him the vassalage due to Him, who is the liberator of the world. No one could lay a hand on Him, for His hour had not come: He who was, who is, and who will always be God and man, the beginning and the end. May this prayer that I address to you guarantee me eternally against my enemies. Amen. Jesus of Nazareth, King of the Jews and Redeemer of the world, look upon this unhappy soul who humbles herself before you and still believes herself unworthy of kneeling before such great excellence and give me the peace I long for. Amen. Have mercy on me, who am a poor sinner and miserable creature, lead me according to your sweetness on the way of eternal salvation. Amen. At the time when the good Jesus was accomplishing his redemptive mission on earth, the Jewish priests who did not understand him sent emissaries to apprehend him. And Jesus, knowing the things that must happen to him, came to them and said, ‘Whom do you seek? And they answered, Jesus of Nazareth. And Jesus answered them, I am he. And when Judas, who was among them and was to betray him, had told them that it was he, they all fell down to the ground. Who is it that you seek? Jesus asked them again, and when they answered that it was Jesus of Nazareth, Jesus said to them, “I told you that it is I, and if it is I that you seek, let those go (referring to his disciples). And Jesus passed through their midst, and no one dared lay an unholy hand on him, for his hour had not come. The spear, the nails, the cross, the thorns that you have suffered prove, Lord, that you have blotted out and atoned for the crimes of the wretched. Preserve me, Lord Jesus Christ, from the ambushes that my enemies prepare for me, for your five wounds serve me continually as a remedy. Jesus is the star; Jesus is the life; Jesus has suffered; Jesus has been crucified; Jesus, the Son of the living God, have mercy on me. Amen.
