why cant I allowed to exorcise someone or something like exercisingam prayer against my house to stop devils coming in and wrecking the place!
The official church teaching is:
Only priests with permission from their bishop can perform an exorcism, with the official exorcism prayer of the church.
Fr Gabriel Amorthe (retired head exorcist of the Vatican) said that:
Laypeople are allowed to pray this exorcism prayer, over their property (eg house, belongings, but not over people),
I read elsewhere that parents have a particular special gift of asking God for blessings for their children (when they ask God to bless their kids). God especially appreciates parents prayers for their kids. (Just like in the Bible Jesus had a special love for children,)
