OK, let me try my hand at this:

As an addendum you'd use my prefix
Almost in your hand you can find my suffix
My infix is even more thin than a hair
And some might find me on a wing and a prayer

What am I?

  • $\begingroup$ No, but I tried 3 different titles and all of them turned up as duplicate titles. So I gave up and picked a title I was sure would be unique :) $\endgroup$ – Ertai87 Aug 15 '18 at 20:38

The answer is

PSALM.

As an addendum you'd use my prefix

PS at the end of a letter.

Almost in your hand you can find my suffix

ALM is almost like the PALM of your hand.

My infix is even more thin than a hair

The infix is actually nothing, because there are no letters between PS and ALM in the word.

And some might find me on a wing and a prayer

PSALM.

  • $\begingroup$ @Ertai87 Ah, OK. Often in these riddles the infix overlaps with the prefix and/or suffix. $\endgroup$ – Rand al'Thor Aug 15 '18 at 20:44
  • $\begingroup$ Ah, I wasn't clear on that. I'll take note of that for my next one, thanks :) $\endgroup$ – Ertai87 Aug 15 '18 at 20:44
