From the book The Gospel According to Spiritism, this set of prayers offers a support to our thoughts at the moment of prayer. This book includes prayers to address our Father, the Sunday communion as well as prayers for spiritual meetings, mediums, oneself, sick people, and deceased relatives… Extract: "The Spirits do not prescribe any absolute formulaic prayers; when they suggest it, it is to fix the ideas and especially to call attention to certain principles of the spiritist doctrine…"

Those who pray enthusiastically and confidently have more strength to withstand the temptations of evil, and to get help from the good spirits sent by God to assist them. Such help is never refused when asked for with sincerity. Form is unimportant, thought is everything. Everyone should pray according to their convictions and in the manner that affects them the most deeply; a good thought is better than many words without the heart being in them.

About the Authors

Hippolyte Léon Denizard Rivail, known to most by his pseudonym Allan Kardec, was born in Lyon, France on October 3, 1804 in a traditional family that was greatly distinguished in the legal profession and court system. However, he did not pursue those careers and from an early age showed an inclination towards the studies of science and philosophy. Educated in the renowned School of Pestalozzi in Yverdun, Switzerland, Allan Kardec became one of the most eminent pupils of that celebrated teacher and one of the most zealous advertisers of the educational system that would later be of great influence in the reform of the educational system in France and Germany.

Allan Kardec is considered the Codifier of the Spiritist Doctrine for his work on the five books of the Codification—"The Spirits’ Book," "The Mediums’ Book," "The Gospel According to Spiritism," "Heaven and Hell," and "Genesis: Miracles and Predictions According to Spiritism."
