I don't think it will do much of anything at all pro or con, other than to provide a really interesting conversation piece.
I guess you could test it - according to Appalachian folklore (meaning - I heard it as a kid in NE Georgia), you could start a fire in your house,
then recite the following:
"Our Dear Sara journeyed over the land,
having a fiery hot brand in her hand.
The fiery brand heats,
the fiery brand sweats,
fiery brand stop your heat
fiery brand stop your sweat"
Then fling yourself into the fire. If it goes out, then it worked. If you get third degree burns, I guess either it doesn't work at all, or it only
works when you write the square on a plate and toss it in the fire, but not on you personally.
