One of the shortest conjurations and easy to commit to memory, is the Conjuration and Benediction of the Fire.
There are multiple conjurations to be found but some grimoires, such as the Lemegeton, the Key of Solomon by Ptolemy the Grecian, the Heptameron and all derived works follow similar patterns.
I d like to study these a bit and find out how it translates exactly.
To be noted that there are more than one fires that the magician uses, al all firesv must be dealt with accordingly. The fire for fumigations is dedicated in a way, the fire that lights the candles, in another way, the fire used to torment rebellious spirits, in yet another way, and so forth.
The fire used to warm the hearts of the spirits before the circle will be useless in constraining more dangerous or obstane spirits, and vice versa. The element stays the same, the physical phenomenon stays unchanged, but due to the magical charge, it has different properties.
Most sources draw upon the Goetia and the Heptameron, the latter being the source of inspiration for the rituals in the former.
Let s take a look at the Heptameron:
Exorcismus ignis, cui superponuntur fumigia.
The Exorcisme of the fire upon which the perfumes are to be put.
An Exorcism for the fire
The Coniuration of ye Fyer.

A very new addition , and valuable indeed, is the Folger Manuscript, recently transcribed by Peterson and Harms and published under the name of The Book of Oberion. By their immense generosity, the full transcript is available for free at mister Peterson s website.
It contains extensive material that ties everything together, and among many other precious finds we have this very conjuration (my translation , I do not own the book yet):
