The prayers to the Just Judge represent the deepest flow of faith of the devotees, since the qualification as Just Judge refers to the biblical moment in which Jesus was presented before Pontius Pilate and declared that his Kingdom is not of this world.
The scriptures also tell us that Pilate's wife called him and said:
"Do not mess with that Just, because I suffered in dreams last night for Him."
This is how this invocation of Jesus as Just Judge is venerated that numerous Brotherhoods such as San Juan Ostuncalco, Huehuetenango, Escuela de Cristo Antigua, Capuchinas in the Capital, San Cristóbal Totonicapán, among others, adopted as the main image to represent Jesus Christ.
It is said that the most famous image of the Just Judge was sculpted by Juan de Aguirre, who after that work, entered the Franciscan order in Guatemala as a lay Friar.
The chronicles indicate that the sculptor had a divine vision and that he was guided by angels to the Sorrowful Virgin of Obide who put her hands on his forehead and blessed him and then showed him the image of Jesus of Nazarene.
Juan then woke up in his workshop, but the image of Jesus was engraved in his mind, so he sculpted a work that reflected the suffering and burdened majesty of the Nazarene who arrived tired at Mount Calvary, and named it Just Judge.

Divine and Just Judge of the living and the dead, eternal sun of justice, embodied in the chaste belly of the Virgin Mary for the health of the human lineage.
Just Judge, creator of heaven and earth and died on the cross for my love.
You, who were wrapped in a shroud and placed in a tomb, from which on the third day you were raised, the conqueror of death and hell.
Just and Divine Judge, hear my pleas, attend to my requests, listen to my requests and give them favorable dispatch.
Your imperious voice calmed the storms, healed the sick and raised the dead like Lazarus and the son of Naim's widow.
The empire of your voice fled the demons, causing them to leave the bodies of the possessed, and gave sight to the blind, speak to the mute, hear the deaf and forgive sinners, such as the Magdalene and the paralytic from the pool.
You made yourself invisible to your enemies, at your voice those who went to imprison you fell to the ground in the garden, and when you expired on the Cross, the orbs trembled at your powerful accent.
You opened the jails for Peter and took him out of them without being seen by Herod's guard.
You saved Dimas and forgave the adulteress. I beg you, Just Judge, free me from all my enemies, visible and invisible: the Shroud in which you were wrapped covers me, your sacred shadow hides me, the veil that covered your eyes blinds those who persecute me and those who wish me ill Have eyes and do not reach me, have hands and do not tempt me, have ears and do not hear me, have a tongue and do not accuse me and your lips are mute in court when they try to harm me.
Oh, Jesus Christ Just and Divine Judge, please me in all kinds of anguish and affliction, sets and commitments and make that by invoking you and acclaiming the empire of your powerful and holy voice calling you to my aid, the prisons are opened, the chains and ties break, shackles and bars break, knives bend, and every weapon against me becomes dull and useless.
Neither the horses reach me, nor the spies look at me, nor find me. Your blood bathes me, your mantle covers me, your hand bless me, your power hides me, your cross defend me and be my shield in life and at the time of my death.
Oh, Just Judge, Son of the Eternal Father, that with Him and with the Holy Spirit you are one true God!
Oh Divine Word made man!
I beg you to cover me with the mantle of the Holy Trinity so that you may be free from all dangers and glorify your Holy Name.
The Just Judge is always there to listen to us, but the best time to pray to him is at the beginning of the day, so that we can thank his blessings and ask him to protect us every day, during every step we take in life.
It is also recommended to pray the Holy Rosary at least once a week, to make communication closer.
We ask the angels who take care of us for protection, health and healing in moments of difficulty and we also pray in moments of inner peace to feel their love and closeness.
Of course, there are specific prayers for the various situations in life, through which we ask for heavenly intervention and its blessings to overcome obstacles.
