Hi,

Those are all existing Latin words, but it's hard to tell whether they're correct for your intended meanings if we don't know what you wanted to say. ;)
 
Sorry Pacifica, here we go:
Incantatio : Incantation
Oratio : Prayer
Devotio : Devotion
Dolor - Spes : Pain - Hope
Affectio : Affection
Laetatio : Joy
Commotio : Disturbance
Bellicus : War
Salvatio : Salvation
Glorificatio : Glorification

It all seems OK except "war", which should be bellum.
