3. Venus-day Daily Prayers
- Spiritual Practices
- February 13th - 2024
Keep your mind, heart, and body balanced and clear by reciting a set of essential prayers for this day of the week.
In ancient times, the order of the days of the week followed the order of the seven planetary influences, which we still use here. What modern people call "Tuesday" is actually the day of Venus. Its authentic name is Friday, and comes from the name "Freya," Venus).
Why Pray Daily?
It is wise to perform prayers daily in order to reject negative influences, call positive aid, and protect oneself. While there are many prayers that can be used for these purposes, the following have tremendous power, and are the select prayers we generally rely on in most cases.
Commonly, aspirants will perform these prayers before meditation, sleep, or any type of ritual. It is not required to use every one of them every time we pray; you can pick among them as you see fit. For instance, before sleeping we suggest at a minimum using a conjuration and the protective circle. In times of danger or uncertainty, add more. During times of duress, use them all.
It is advisable to perform these prayers at your altar, which at a minimum should have:
- Representatives of the four elements (for instance, a cup of water, a feather, candles, and flowers or a stone)
- An upright pentagram
- A copy of the Gnostic Bible
- Any inspiring images of divinity, such as a cross, statues, paintings, etc.
- Incense. We especially recommend using pure resin incense on an incense charcoal, such as frankincense, myrrh, or benzoin:
"The smoke of frankincense has the power to make the masters and angels of the invisible world attend. Frankincense prepares the environment for the Gnostic rituals. Frankincense is a great vehicle for spiritual waves of pure devotion. It helps the mystical retreat because it serves as an instrument of devotion. In the ancient temples of the mysteries, those who were ill were surrounded with the smoke of frankincense in order to be cured... Frankincense must be used by all the devotees of the path" - Samael Aun Weor, Igneous Rose
Remember that each prayer will only be effective if you are fully concentrated on the prayer and visualizing the help that you are requesting. If your mind is wandering and distracted, the effectiveness of the prayer is substantially reduced or negated entirely.
Some of these prayers are directed towards the four elements (fire, air, water, earth), which represent the four means of moving energy. These four are around us and within us psychologically. When we are disturbed, angry, confused, hurting, or experiencing any negative qualties, those states are manifesting because of the condition of the four elements within us. By conjuring those elements, we are using power to revert those elements to their normal (and beneficial) status. In general, this is what all of these prayers do: they invoke superior forces to dominate the inferior ones that are within us.
We hope this daily practice will bring you peace and the opportunity to improve yourself.

Exorcism of the Earth
Oh thou invisible king who has taken the earth as thy support and who has weakened the abysses in order to fill them with thine omnipotence; thou whose name makes the canopies of the world tremble; thou who makes the seven metals within the veins of the stone flow; sovereign of seven lights; remunerator of the subterranean workers, take us up unto the longing air and into the kingdom of clarity. We keep vigil and work without rest; we search and linger for the twelve stones of the holy city and for the talismans that are hidden within them, and for the pole of loadstone that passes through the core of the world. Lord, lord, lord, have pity on those who suffer, expand our hearts, disclose and elevate our heads, dignify us, oh stability and movement; oh day, shroud of the night; oh obscurity, veiled by the light; oh master, that never withholds the salary of thy workers; oh argentine whiteness; oh golden splendor; oh crown of living and melodious diamonds: thou who carries heaven in thy finger as if it were a sapphire ring, thou who hides the marvelous seed plot of stars under the earth within the kingdom of precious stones, come, reign, and become the eternal dispenser of that wealth, whose guardians thou has made us. Amen.

Translation of Latin
Oh Thou, Solar Logos, igneous emanation, substance and consciousness of Christ, powerful life whereby everything advances, come unto me and penetrate me, enlighten me, bathe me, go through me and awaken within my Being all of those ineffable substances that are as much a part of Thee as a part of me.
Universal and cosmic force, mysterious energy, I conjure Thee, come unto me, remedy my affliction, cure me from this illness and put apart from me this suffering so I can have harmony, peace, and health.
I ask Thee in thy sacred name, which the mysteries and the Gnostic Church have taught me, so Thou can make vibrate with me all of the mysteries of this plane and superior planes, and that all of those forces together may achieve the miracle of my healing. So be it.
Every night before you go to sleep (and even when you practice meditation), mentally trace a magical circle around your bedroom or your house. Pray to your Divine Mother for protection. Visualize a wall of flame emerging around your room or house and trace it with your mind three times while you chant the mantra three times:
Helion Melion Tetragrammaton!
