Default Prayers for Protection against the Devil

Can you recommend prayers of protection besides the St. Michael Prayer? I am the Director for a women's retreat & we are having our formation meetings & I would like to offer a prayer to the women that would be appropriate, along with the St. Michael prayer, for us to say as we prepare for this retreat!

Default Re: Prayers for Protection against the Devil

There are two prayers taught to the children at Fatima that supposedly came from St. Michael that are protective. Additionally, St. Benedict has a very effective prayer against the devil. All of these can be googled. The Blessed Mother is very powerful against the devil- so we also pray the Hail Mary and the Memorare with the intention of protection from evil. If you would like, I can type the prayers for you. I am thinking however that they are very easily found online and printed. Let me know. I hope this helps!

Several such prayers are recorded in this homily: http://www.audiosancto.org/sermon/20...yswatters.html

I use several of these myself, especially St. Anthony's Brief and the "Precious blood, wash over me and protect me from the wickedness and snares of the Devil."

St. Benedict's medal and its accompanying prayers are also good with holy water, a crucifix, and a blessed candle.

Some saints also repeatedly made the sign of the cross as a form of protection, St. Justina, St. John Bosco, and others, when under spiritual attack.

Here are two night prayers taken from the Liturgy of the Hours:

Protect us, Lord, as we stay awake; watch over us as we sleep, that awake, we may keep watch with Christ, and asleep, rest in his peace.


Lord, we beg you to visit this house and banish from it all the deadly power of the enemy.
May your holy angels dwell here to keep us in peace, and may your blessing be upon us always. We ask this through Christ our Lord.

O Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle and be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God, we humbly pray, rebuke him, and do thou, O prince of the heavenly host, thrust into Hell Satan and the other evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.

or you can pray by speaking to Jesus. In your mind, speak to Jesus just like you speak to other person, have faith that He is listening to you, ask Him to control over your thoughts and protect you and others from all evil spirits. He will answer your prayer. Please try this.

Default Re: Prayers for Protection against the Devil

Heavenly Father, I love You, I praise You, and I worship You. I thank You for sending Your Son Jesus Who won victory over sin and death for my salvation. I thank You for sending Your Holy Spirit Who empowers me, guides me, and leads me into fullness of life. I thank you for Mary, my Heavenly Mother, who intercedes with the holy angels and saints for me.

Lord Jesus Christ, I place myself at the foot of Your cross and ask You to cover me with Your Precious Blood which pours forth from Your Most Sacred Heart and Your Most Holy Wounds. Cleanse me, my Jesus, in the living water that flows from Your Heart. I ask You to surround me, Lord Jesus, with Your Holy Light.

Heavenly Father, let the healing waters of my baptism now flow back through the maternal and paternal generations to purify my family line of satan and sin. I come before You, Father, and ask forgiveness for myself, my relatives, and my ancestors, for any calling upon powers that set themselves up in opposition to You or that do not offer true honor to Jesus Christ. In Jesus' Holy Name, I now reclaim any territory that was handed over to satan and place it under the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

By the power of Your Holy Spirit, reveal to me, Father, any people I need to forgive and any areas of unconfessed sin. Reveal aspects of my life that are not pleasing to You, Father, ways that have given or could give satan a foothold in my life. Father, I give to You any unforgiveness; I give to You my sins; and, I give to You all ways that satan has a hold of my life. Thank You, for Your forgiveness and Your love.

Lord Jesus, in Your Holy Name, I bind all evil spirits of the air, water, ground, underground, and netherworld. I further bind, in Jesus' Name, any and all emissaries of the satanic headquarters and claim the Precious Blood of Jesus on the air, atmosphere, water, ground and their fruits around us, the underground and the netherworld below.

Heavenly Father, allow Your Son Jesus to come now with the Holy Spirit, the Blessed Virgin Mary, the holy angels and the saints to protect me from all harm and to keep all evil spirits from taking revenge on me in any way.

(Repeat the following sentence three times: once in honor of the Father, once in honor of the Son, and once in honor of the Holy Spirit.)

In the Holy Name of Jesus, I seal myself, my relatives, this room (place, home, church, car, plane, etc...), and all sources of supply in the Precious Blood of Jesus Christ.

(To break and dissolve all satanic seals, repeat the following paragraph three times in honor of the Holy Trinity because satanic seals are places three times to blaspheme the Holy Trinity.)

In the Holy Name of Jesus, I break and dissolve any and all curses, hexes, spells, snares, traps, lies, obstacles, deceptions, diversions, spiritual influences, evil wishes, evil desires, hereditary seals, known and unknown, and every dysfunction and disease from any source including my mistakes and sins. In Jesus' Name, I sever the transmission of any and all satanic vows, pacts, spiritual bonds, soul ties, and satanic works. In Jesus' Name, I break and dissolve any and all links and effects of links with: astrologers; bohmos; channelers; charters; clairvoyants; crystal healers; crystals; fortune tellers; mediums; the New Age Movement; occult seers; palm, tea leaf, or tarot card readers; psychics; santeros; satanic cults; spirit guides; witches; witchdoctors; and, Voodoo. In Jesus' Name, I dissolve all effects of participation in seances and divination, ouija boards, horoscopes, occult games of all sorts, and any form of worship that does not offer true honor to Jesus Christ.

Holy Spirit, please reveal to me through word of knowledge any evil spirits that have attached themselves to me in any way. (Pause and wait for words to come to you, such as: anger, arrogance, bitterness, brutality, confusion, cruelty, deception, envy, fear, hatred, insecurity, jealousy, pride, resentment, or terror. Pray the following for each of the spirits revealed.)

In the Name of Jesus, I rebuke you spirit of _________________. I command to go directly to Jesus, without manifestation and without harm to me or anyone, so that He can dispose of you according to His Holy Will.

I thank You, Heavenly Father for Your Love. I thank You, Holy Spirit for empowering me to be aggressive against satan and evil spirits. I thank You, Jesus, for setting me free. I thank You, Mary, for interceding for me with the holy angels and the saints.

Lord Jesus, fill me with charity, compassion, faith, gentleness, hope, humility, joy, kindness, light, love, mercy, modesty, patience, peace, purity, security, tranquility, trust, truth, understanding, and wisdom. Help me to walk in Your Light and Truth, illuminated by the Holy Spirit so that together we may praise, honor, and glorify Our Father in time and in eternity. For You, Lord Jesus, are, "...the way, the truth, and the life" (John 14:6 ), and You "...have come that we might have life and have it more abundantly" (John 10:10 ).

"God indeed is my savior; I am confident and unafraid. My strength and courage is the Lord, and he has been my savior" (Isaiah 12:2 ).

Amen. Alleluia. Amen.

I was thinking we had mentioned the Archangels, but looking back, I see it was only the St. Michael prayer. Besides that prayer, there is an entire chaplet dedicated to all 9 choirs of angels. It's called the Chaplet of St. Michael.
