Now That's What I Call Prayer Specialization

Back of church at St. Pat's but what do my wandering eyes see?  A prayer booklet for lectors! (Not the Hannibal kind.)  Apparently they need lots of prayers.

I was in a hurry so didn't look in it much but I can imagine one would go:
"May he or she read like the wind!
 May they have sufficient saliva to properly enunciate the most difficult Hebraic words.
 May they not stumble on the way to the lectern, nor light themselves on fire accidentally via a candle.
 May they speak not too fast, nor too slow.
 May all their syllables come out in a syllaballically impressive fashion."
