Okay so I am not that kind of person but I would like to share with you what I know about the Louis' situation at the studio. Everything that I know has been told to me by people living in London that unfortunately crossed their path with the group of stalkers.
First of all, these people arrived in London just about a year ago, and they were all au pair. No one knew them but they soon became "famous": they stalked Harry outside his own house (there are tiktoks about it posted by them), they harassed Eleanor in the middle of the street (again, videos on tiktok), they went outside Louis' home at night completely drunk. These people are Italians, and they're called Giulia, Gemma and Denise.
I know all of this things because they talked about it proudly, like it was something to be proud about.
Then they started to show at Louis' studio since this summer. As soon as they found out that Louis was going there every day, they did the same, and they asked for pictures every single time. The first times they didn't tell anyone, but then they started to call their friends, and from three people they became 9/10, every day.
When the pics came out one of them (Giulia, @nicftlouis) started to act crazy on twitter, telling people they were just jealous of her and her friends and saying really bad things that everyone read, like that people will not meet Louis because they live in third world countries, that karma will hit them (for what?!) and that someone's mum should have had an abort*on.
When they went again at the studio at the beginning of October, Louis told her that he read what she wrote on twitter, and that she needed to stop. He told her that receiving hate wasn't a good reason to spread it. She resisted three days before starting to insult people again. This didn't stop her from going every day at the studio, and she started to call more and more people.
One day a resident came out from one of the houses in front at the studio, and told them they had to leave, because they were there every day at every hour and people couldn't rest because of them. They mocked him, recorded him, and one of the girl (the one with long blonde hair) told him "Next time you want to tell us something, open the window like the Pope" and they all laughed at him. Instead of apologise and keep it quiet, they mocked him.
Some day later, another resident came out, telling them they were camping outside his house and leaving a mess behind every night. I will not share the details of that night because it was really bad and people got scared. The guy was pretty violent, and even if this could have put everyone (Louis included) in danger, they didn't care. They came back night after night, listening to music outloud, screaming, playing and being really noisy.
There were a lot of people in the group and they started to bully everyone else. At some point they were 10/15 girls in Giulia's group (not only Italians), and they started to go around and tell people to delete the pics they took of Louis if they were in there. They started to mock people in front of Louis, even with people that met him for the first time. Most of the people just went there once or twice, but they kept going every day for 3/4 weeks, and asking for pictures every night. In one of the last video, the girl with long blonde hair recorded a video for a friend, and you can see that Louis is not having it anymore.
One of the last days they waited until Louis' left and attacked a girl, pulling her hair and calling her names. Even if Louis asked them to be kind, they bullied everyone that wasn't in their group, both in person and on twitter. They never stopped.
Please share this, hoping that Louis will see it and he will never stop again. I am sorry for the people who went there to meet him for the first time and they had their memories ruined by this bunch of immature girls.
Fans always went to the studio in the past but everyone was supportive and kind to each other and there wasn't this kind of behaviour. Since these girls arrived I have always heard only bad things and bullying and hating and this needs to stop immediately.

You don't need divination or rituals to communicate with the gods.
You can just talk to them.
I talk to the gods when I'm lying down and resting on the bed, when I'm sitting in front of their altars, when I'm doing housework, when I'm riding a horse, when I'm taking a walk with my dog.
Just talk to them, whenever and wherever. They will listen.

On prayers in hellenism
Tumblr media
(feel free to correct me if i made a mistake)
Literally yesterday I was talking to one of my best friends about her relationships and said “i must admit when you dated x i prayed day and night for you to find a better man, im not a prayer person tbh”. 
And that little dumb comment ended up here. I thought to myself why was I in fact not a prayer person and why and how did I pray in certain cases such as when running or asking Aphrodite for my friend to find a better guy.
So here you go, a crash course on prayers but specifically in hellenism. 
If it’s not obvious, each way of worshipping is different and if you don’t agree with something I say just don’t do it? Paganism in general is a very personal and free religion, so do whatever you think it’s the right way (be careful too pls). 
Let’s start with what troubled me the most, the posture. Did I have to kneel? Sit? WHAT?! Well here you go:
When praying to ouranic Gods or heavenly Gods, one should stand with hands in the air and palms facing upward (Burkert 1985, 75).
When praying to chthonic Gods or underworld Gods, as well as the deceased, hands mustn’t be raised, and the prayer should be murmured (Burkert 1985, 75).
When praying to einalic Gods or Gods of the sea, as well as Nymphs and spirits of the earth, arms must be spread wide towards the sea; the hands “are also stretched towards the cult image” (Burkert 1985, 75).
(Here you can find which are some of the ouraic, chtonic and einalic gods)
Position ready, now you should try to purify yourself through washing your hands, taking a shower, etc. (Miasma, this is all miasma go research kiddos). Why? WHY?! Well, Imagine someone comes to you all dirty and smelly asking for help... no fun right. 
Let’s assume you already are clean, get an offering to offer the gods and let’s start. 
Okay okay now, what do we say when we start a prayer? Do we say “Hey pal how you doing bro” (be kind enough to add the generic frat boy voice when reading)? The answer is obviously not but what should we say... I assume you have already decided who are you praying too, so we name/invoke the deity we are asking help/giving our gratitude too, most of the times this starts with a “Hear, O (deity) + (epithets you might think are pertinent for this specific prayer, optional)”. Not always though, I’ll be furthermore breaking down two prayers from the Iliad on this steps to make it even more clear. This comparison can be found below.
Done that? We can proceed to basically give an “argument” on why you, from all people, should be blessed with their help. This is not for to guilt trip the deity okay, this is to bring up the beautiful relationship you have with them, it’s basically a reminder of “Hey, I’m serious about our deity x worshipper relationship, this is no joke”.
Now ofc we have to say why are we praying for. Wealth? Love? Want to pass your exams? (I sure do). Please don’t ask for an unicorn, ask for something the gods can give you such as protection, a blessing, good luck at an exam: be creative but not too creative. 
Now that they are hopefully giving you what you’re asking for, we give back freely not because we want to force them to give us what we want. Basically the quote “I give so that you may give.” This can be considered as a “promise” on doing something like “I will practice violin daily for you” or “I will burn a candle for you”. You have your own practices so go with them. 
Comparison among two prayers
Now that we got this, you may ask yourself “Where the hell is Roy taking all this info from?”. So I’ll just analyze prayers for you so you can see the clear structure used by Greek Writers. Here we go through comparing two prayers from the best book on Earth, the Iliad:
[446] So saying he placed her in his arms, and he joyfully took his dear child; but they made haste to set in array for the god the holy hecatomb around the well-built altar, and then they washed their hands and took up the barley grains. Then Chryses lifted up his hands, and prayed aloud for them: "Hear me, god of the silver bow, who stands over Chryse and holy Cilla, and rules mightily over Tenedos. As before you heard me when I prayed—to me you did honour, and mightily smote the host of the Achaeans—even so now fulfill me this my desire: ward off now from the Danaans the loathly pestilence."
The Iliad Book 1 446-457
[220] to war in the forefront of the Myrmidons. But Achilles went into his hut, and opened the lid of a chest, fair and richly-dight, that silver-footed Thetis had set on his ship for him to carry with him, whem she had filled it well with tunics, and cloaks to keep off the wind, and woollen rugs. [225] Therein had he a fair-fashioned cup, wherefrom neither was any other man wont to drink the flaming wine, nor was he wont to pour drink offerings to any other of the gods save only to father Zeus. This cup he then took from the chest and cleansed it first with sulphur, and thereafter washed it in fair streams of water; [230] and himself he washed his hands, and drew flaming wine. Then he made prayer, standing in the midst of the court, and poured forth the wine, looking up to heaven; and not unmarked was he of Zeus, that hurleth the thunderbolt:“Zeus, thou king, Dodonaean, Pelasgian, thou that dwellest afar, ruling over wintry Dodona,—and about thee dwell the Selli, [235] thine interpreters, men with unwashen feet that couch on the ground. Aforetime verily thou didst hear my word, when I prayed: me thou didst honour, and didst mightily smite the host of the Achaeans; even so now also fulfill thou for me this my desire. Myself verily will I abide in the gathering of the ships, [240] but my comrade am I sending forth amid the host of the Myrmidons to war: with him do thou send forth glory, O Zeus, whose voice is borne afar, and make bold the heart in his breast, to the end that Hector, too, may know whether even alone my squire hath skill to fight, or whether his hands [245] then only rage invincible, whenso I enter the turmoil of Ares. But when away from the ships he hath driven war and the din of war, thea all-unscathed let him come back to the swift ships with all his arms, and his comrades that fight in close combat.”
The Iliad book XVI 220-245
Libations & Placement 
Achilless:  This cup he then took from the chest and cleansed it first with sulphur, and thereafter washed it in fair streams of water; [230] and himself he washed his hands, and drew flaming wine.”
Chryses: “around the well-built altar, and then they washed their hands (...) then Chryses lifted up his hands, and prayed aloud for them”
Calling among the gods
Chryses: "Hear me, god of the silver bow, who stands over Chryse and holy Cilla, and rules mightily over Tenedos
Achilles: ”Zeus, thou king, Dodonaean, Pelasgian, thou that dwellest afar, ruling over wintry Dodona,—and about thee dwell the Selli, [235] thine interpreters, men with unwashen feet that couch on the ground.”
Justification 
Chryses: As before you heard me when I prayed—to me you did honour, and mightily smote the host of the Achaeans
Achilles:  Aforetime verily thou didst hear my word, when I prayed: me thou didst honour, and didst mightily smite the host of the Achaeans; even so now also fulfill thou for me this my desire.
What they are asking for
Chryses: even so now fulfill me this my desire: ward off now from the Danaans the loathly pestilence
Achilles: O Zeus, whose voice is borne afar, and make bold the heart in his breast, to the end that Hector, too, may know whether even alone my squire hath skill to fight, or whether his hands [245] then only rage invincible, whenso I enter the turmoil of Ares. But when away from the ships he hath driven war and the din of war, thea all-unscathed let him come back to the swift ships with all his arms, and his comrades that fight in close combat.”
Offerings
Chryses:  and took up the barley grains.
Achilles: nor was he wont to pour drink offerings to any other of the gods save only to father Zeus.
-_-
They both fulfill the checklist I did for you so hopefully this will be helpful. As always good luck!

If Allāh blessed you with the opportunity of asking Him anything at Tahajjud, then consider it a done deal.
That Dua is definitely accepted, irrespective how impossible it seems and even though it seems that it is against all means.
You will definitely witness the acceptance, in shaa Allāh.

The whole night before the wedding and all throughout the ceremony, Dean prays to Cas. Little thoughts channeled through prayer over and over again because he just can’t stop himself because he’s so freaking in love that it aches in his chest. ‘I love you.’ ‘I can’t wait to marry you.’ ‘You’re going to be my husband tomorrow.’ ‘Wish I could see you right now.’ ‘Castiel Winchester, God that sounds good.’ ‘Cas... you look absolutely breathtaking.’ ‘If I have to wait another 10 minutes before I can kiss you I’m going to lose my mind.’ ‘How did I get so lucky?’ ‘You really are so devastatingly handsome right now.’ ‘I can’t keep my eyes off of you.’ ‘I love you. So goddamn much.’ And as they’re reciting their vows, Dean keeps adding little extra pieces, said only through prayer so that Cas can hear; vows meant only for Cas. And Cas is crying, reaching out to touch Dean’s cheek, and he knows Cas is hearing everything he isn’t saying out loud. As they finally kiss, finally pronounced husband and husband, Cas murmurs, “I heard all your prayers. I love you, Dean.”

Please stop normalizing "blessing" or "praying for" people when they have not asked to be blessed or prayed for. Even as a polite gesture. Even as a means to be nice. Just, stop.
It's creepy. It's invasive. And there are people, like me, who just don't want any of it. Not from people we don't know. Not from people on the internet we've never met. Not from random strangers, period. Doesn't matter how you feel about blessing or praying for people. Some of us have boundaries and our personal spaces need to be respected.
