Prayers for Protection and Deliverance:



Prayers for Protection and Deliverance:
Heavenly Father, I praise and thank you for all you have given me. Please cover me with the protective, Precious Blood of Your Son, Jesus Christ, and increase Your Holy Spirit in me with His gifts of wisdom, knowledge, understanding, hunger for prayer, guidance and discernment to help me know Your Will and surrender to it more completely.

Father please heal my negative emotions and any wounds in my heart and spirit. Send the sword of Your Holy Spirit to sever and break all spells, curses, hexes, voodoo and all negative genetic, inter-generational and addictive material, past, present or to come, known or unknown, against me, my relationships and family, finances, possessions and ministry.

Father I forgive and I ask forgiveness for my sins and failings and I ask that my whole person, body and mind, heart and will, soul and spirit, memory and emotions, attitudes and values lie cleansed, renewed and protected by the Most Precious Blood of Your Son Jesus.

In the Name, Power, Blood and Authority of Jesus Christ I bind and break the power and effect in or around me of any and all evil spirits who are trying to harm me in any way and I command these spirits and their companion spirits in the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit to leave me peacefully and quietly and burn all these evils in Hell, that they may never again touch me or any other creature in the entire world.

I command and bid all the powers that molest me ~ by the power of God all powerful, in the Name of Jesus Christ our Savior, through the intercession of the Immaculate Virgin Mary ~ to leave me forever, and to be consigned into everlasting Hell, where they will be bound by St. Michael, St. Raphael, our guardian angels, and where they will be crushed under the heel of the Immaculate Virgin Mary. Amen.

Dear Holy Spirit please fill up any void in me to overflowing with Your great love. All this Father I pray in the Name of Jesus Christ by the guidance of Your Holy Spirit. Immaculate Heart of Mary, spouse of the Holy Spirit, please pray for me and with me. Amen.

Prayer against Every Evil
Spirit of our God, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Most Holy Trinity, Immaculate Virgin Mary, angels, archangels, and saints of Heaven, descend upon me.

Please purify me, Lord, mold me, fill me with Yourself, use me.

Banish from me all the forces of evil, destroy them, vanquish them, so that I can be healthy and do good deeds.

Banish from me all spells, witchcraft, black magic, malefic ties, maledictions, and the evil eye; diabolic infestations, oppressions possessions; all that is evil and sinful, jealousy, perfidy, envy; physical, psychological, moral, spiritual, diabolical ailments.

Burn all these evils in Hell, that they may never again touch me or any other creature in the entire world.

I command and bid all the powers that molest me ~ by the power of God all powerful, in the Name of Jesus Christ our Savior, through the intercession of the Immaculate Virgin Mary ~ to leave me forever, and to be consigned into everlasting Hell, where they will be bound by St. Michael, St. Raphael, our guardian angels, and where they will be crushed under the heel of the Immaculate Virgin Mary. Amen.

Never lose sight of the fact that you are at war!


Homily for Second Saturday of Ordinary Time in honor of Our Lady....
"He answered that many of the soldiers had fled the battle and that many of the them had fallen and were dead, among them Saul and his son Jonathan... They mourned and wept and fasted until evening, for Saul and his son Jonathan, and for the soldiers of the Lord of the clans of Israel, because they had fallen by the sword. Alas! the glory of Israel, Saul, slain upon your heights; how can the warriors have fallen! How can the warriors have fallen, the weapons of war have perished!" (2 Sam. 1:4,12,19,27)
We are at war and there are many who are falling into the death of sin and turning away from Life with the Kingdom of God because they are in battle and do not even know it. Even if a soldier somehow loses consciousness that he is in battle and is covered with armor, that armor will do him very little good if he does not take up his weapons to fight the enemy or to defend himself. How much worse is it when the soldier is in the midst of the battle and has forgotten all of his defense gear and failed to bring any weapons to battle! Yet, many souls in this world are like Saul and Jonathan, they are falling in the fields to their own death because they do not even realize that all of us are at war. We are not war with men, but with principalities and powers... with soldiers who remain unseen... the demonic. Even though we don't even want to recognize that they are among us and that we believe are o.k. and don't need to do anything but go on living our normal lives, they hate us and they are at war with us and our seeking to destroy us that we may fall in this battle to our eternal death by sin.
You are at war and these creatures are at war with you precisely because you belong to Our Lady and to Her Son, Jesus Christ. Because you are called to the Kingdom of God, the kingdom of darkness hates you and is out to destroy you.
"And the Lord said: Simon, Simon, behold Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat." (Luke 22:31)
If you do not believe you are at war or that there are unseen enemies out there who seek to destroy you and that they hate you, even if you don't want to recognize that you are at war, we have only to turn to Holy Scripture to see that this is not the case, that we are sadly mistaken and that we are perishing in battle if we do not take up our arms to not only defend ourselves but also to take up the call to battle:
"For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. [4] For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty to God unto the pulling down of fortifications, destroying counsels..." (2 Cor. 10:3-4)
"Dearly beloved, I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, to refrain yourselves from carnal desires which war against the soul..." (1 Peter 2:11)
"And the dragon was angry against the woman: and went to make war with the rest of her seed, who keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ." (Rev. 12:17)
"Finally, brethren, be strengthened in the Lord, and in the might of his power. Put you on the armour of God, that you may be able to stand against the deceits of the devil. For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against principalities and power, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places. Therefore take unto you the armour of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and to stand in all things perfect. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of justice, And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace: In all things taking the shield of faith, wherewith you may be able to extinguish all the fiery darts of the most wicked one. And take unto you the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit (which is the word of God). By all prayer and supplication praying at all times in the spirit; and in the same watching with all instance and supplication for all the saints." (Ephes. 6:10-18)
SO, WHERE ARE YOUR WEAPONS? WHERE IS YOUR ARMOR? Turn to Our Lord for her protection. Wear the Brown Scapular, pray the Rosary daily, run to Our Lord in the Sacrament of Confession if you have fallen in battle and continue to run to there frequently (at least once a month), go to daily Mass if at all possible, pray, pray, pray, and take up the Holy Armor of Sacred Scripture by sitting at Our Lord's feet and listen to His Word so that He may strengthen you and encourage you in the day of battle.
