While not Fera I agree with her sentiment on this. Your equating Lucifer to the Christian notion of Satan. So why limit or only focus upon the Christian persona.

The Christian persona of Lucifer is far different than the Roman persona of Lucifer. Which is still different than the Luciferia or light bringer aspect that is assigned to so many Roman and Hellenic gods / goddesses. While I can't think of specific names I believe it is also found in the Celtic and Nordic pantheons in a similar light bringer / bearer aspect though not worded the same way.

Maybe there are other devil deities that I should pray with.

I can't help but wonder why you think you should be praying to a "devil" figure? There are a lot of demonic type entities out there both Christian and non-Christian in origins. Yet they are not typically prayed to or called upon as a norm. Summoned or called forth yes, but prayed to not as a norm.

Granted some seem to be more popular than others, consider Lilith the lilitu demoness has gained a great following. To many she is still nothing more than a Sumerian Demoness, to others she's become something of a goddess who they claim was subjugated by men and thus the face of feminism in some capacities.

Yeah there are many aspects to the Satan figure for sure. Who you pray to is entirely up to you that's for sure. Yes, many people do pray to both the Christian figure known as Satan and to the concept or egregore known as Satan which is not the Christian figure.

Personally I just think if your going to pray to a divine figure then you should at least being willing to commit to it and all that it entails. Not just a random idea about who or what something / someone is and think that is sufficient reason to call upon them.

I find for me that it takes more than just hoping for something to happen to make it happen by calling on any divine or semi-divine being. Though one base aspect is always a deep belief in who and what they are not just what others think of them or what you think they might deliver to you.

True. But I guess it's depend on what you believe in order to pray other entities.
