Friend being oppressed by evil spirits


#1

My friend called me at 3 in the morning asking for me help with a spirit that was afflicting her and her two friends. She is now a christian, but in times past dabbled heavily with magic and the occult and has always had issues with spirits. She has been seemingly targeted by the evil one for some time both with spiritual and physically manifested events witnessed by others we know and I worry I am the only person interceding for her (and inadequately so on my own…). She is contemplating heavily on becoming catholic, and I fear almost these attacks will increase as that becomes more likely.

So please, pray that the evil one should leave her alone and be chained up, never again to pester her.

…peace be with you…really…

…i pray for your friend…hopefully, your friend has rid her home of all occult paraphenalia…if you can, find an experienced priest who may help, at the very least to bless the home…until then, i have found a contemplative recitation of the rosary to be most helpful if you are alone in your intercessions…if you can find a family member that is catholic and willing to recite the rosary with you, pray in the presence of the Eucharist in a church or in front of the tabernacle…in any case, when ending each mystery, at the close of the fatima prayer, “…lead all souls to heaven, especially those most in need of Thy mercy…”…think intently of your friend…if your friend does not know how to pray the rosary, ask if she might wish to learn…she should, if possible, be definitive in her faith first through reading the catechism…

…story of a soul would be good reading for both you and your friend to compliment recitation of the rosary until you locate a priest…if you do not have have blessed medal of st. benedict, get one for yourself and for your friend…along with wearing the medal at all times during this ordeal, learn as much as you can about the life and times of st. benedict…both he and the “little flower” make for good intercession, at least that has been my experience…

…be careful…

…peace—>mark

and at the hour of our death.
Amen.

dmfette-

Thank you for your advice, it’s funny you should mention the Little Flower, I gave her a second class relic of her and she said that her keeping it in her room makes the room feel safe, and since that was never the case before (her rooms always have had problems with spirits), I am glad I was willing to part with it for her sake :). Still, I worry…

Eucharisted- Hmm, good idea, I completely forgot about that one. The first saint she ever prayed to was St. Michael, and she certainly knew when he was doing his thing for her :).

Thank you all for your prayers, she’s on her way to becoming a great saint I am sure, but she needs help escaping the diabolical forces that have oppressed her for the first part of her life.
