The great magician and Kabbalist Solomon, son of David and King of Israel, gave this powerful gift to humanity: a prayer that calls upon many important names of God, in order to call for assistance, guidance, and protection. In order to understand this prayer, one must study the Kabbalah. In order to actualize this prayer, one must be an authentic Kabbalist. That is, one must be acquiring cognizance—conscious experience—of the Sephiroth in oneself.

Powers of the Kingdom, be ye under my left foot and in my right hand!
Glory and Eternity, take me by the two shoulders and direct me in the paths of victory!
Mercy and Justice, be ye the equilibrium and splendor of my life!
Intelligence and Wisdom, crown me!
Spirits of Malkuth, lead me betwixt the two pillars upon which rests the whole edifice of the temple!
Angels of Netzach and Hod, establish me upon the cubic stone of Yesod!
O Gedulael! O Geburael! O Tiphereth!
Binael, be my love!
Ruach Chokmael, be thou my light!
Be that which thou art and thou shalt be, O Ketheriel!
Ishim, assist me in the name of Shaddai!
Cherubim, be my strength in the name of Adonai!
Beni-Elohim, be my brethren in the name of the Son, and by the powers of Sabbaoth!
Elohim, do battle for me in the name of Tetragrammaton!
Melachim, protect me in the name of Iod Hei Vav Hei!
Seraphim, cleanse my love in the name of Eloah!
Hasmalim, enlighten me with the splendors of Elohim and Shekinah!
Aralim, act!
Ophanim, revolve and shine!
Hajoth ha Kadosh, cry, speak, roar, bellow!
Kadosh, Kadosh, Kadosh!
Shaddai, Adonai, Iod-Havah,
Eheieh Asher Eheieh!
Hallelu-jah, Hallelu-jah, Hallelu-jah,
Amen. Amen. Amen.
