Possible demon oppression in a loved one... need help please!


#1

I need help as soon as possible please. It has taken me months to realize that there may be a real threat to my boyfriend in the form of a demon. He has many of the symptoms of a demonic oppression including irrational fear, irrational anxiety, lack of self control, aimlessness, suicide threats, depression, outbursts of hatred, and violent behavior.

If you would like to know about his personality, he is an ESTP at its worst. I am very concerned about him. I tried to get him to pray earlier today. He admitted to me that he believed in God (he is a baptist but has not been to church in years). And I asked him to pray aloud with me and he would not do it. He insisted that he prayed in his head and would never share a prayer with me.

His behavior is becoming progressively worse. I have actually needed to call the local police department on one occasion due to his suicide threats. He has many bad habits and doesn’t seem to care about what happens to him. He is a binge drinker and a smoker. I am so worried about his destructive ways. He has also lashed out at me several times. He has punched me and bruised me and constantly puts me down even when I am trying to help him.

Please help me! I deeply care about him and want him to get better. Prayers are appreciated and advice would help me a great deal. Thank you.

Edit: He also gets really angry, to the point where he is screaming and cursing the world but then will act like nothing happened ten minutes later. I dismiss his outbursts when they are over just because I am so happy that he is no longer upset. But it is really confusing because he acts like nothing happened. And sometimes he doesn’t remember what he said or was mad about, or that he was even mad in the first place. It is like the whole thing is a blur to him. It is scary.


#2

He will not change when you marry, so please, think of living together with this man for the rest of your life.

Talk to your priest, get his advice.


#3

You need to get away from him. He is an abuser.

Women often fall into the trap of thinking “he NEEDS me” and “I can FIX him.” He does not need you, and you cannot fix him. Continue to pray for him, yes, but get yourself out of harm’s way. By staying with him, you are enabling him. Violence only gets worse. Get out NOW.


#4

I am not planning on marrying this man since he started to act like this. I am supporting him because I think he needs my help. And he threatens me with suicide when I try to end things. I’m just trying to get through the situation as gracefully as possible.


#5

Still talk with your priest, he will help you both.


#6

O my Jesus, I immerse into Your Sacred Heart Hunni and her boyfriend. I implore You to have mercy on them, sinners. Amen.


#7

Sounds like he has manic depression esp. after you mentioned that he acts as if nothing happened. He needs medical attention (i.e. a psychiatrist) and you need to get out of your relationship. The fact that he threatens suicide if you end things is manipulative…he is manipulating you. Leave but continue to pray for his healing.


#8

He needs to be checked out by a doctor for any medical conditions (including psychiatric conditions).

He is manipulative and is using you.

He is guilting you by threatening suicide. You cannot allow him to control you like this.

Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come,
Thy will be done, on earth, as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread.
Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit,
as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
Blessed art thou among women
and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus.
Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now,
and at the hour of our death. Amen

Lord, may this couple meet with a good, holy priest to help the suffering man get the spiritual assistance he needs. He sounds like he needs to meet with a doctor too to help him with his anger and emotional outbursts (which could be due to alchohol), if he isn’t actually demonically possessed. Protect Hunni and help her know that she is not helping this man by letting him remain in the same destructive behaviors. She is leaving him open to endangering her life too. I believe she knows these things, but just wants to help him. He is getting worse, Lord, and that means he could do something worse. Before the next time something violent happens, I pray Hunni could call for some immediate intervention and set him on the road to recovery. If she could call AA and get him to the meetings that would be great. He would grow to learn about you, get off the alchohol, and his relationship with you will be able to improve. If Hunni thinks the man is possessed, may she also talk with a priest and describe his behaviors and see if an exorcist can help. Maybe the man needs deliverance from an exorcist more than anything. Help Hunni’s sick, suffering boyfriend and heal him, Lord; protect Hunni and help her distance herself from her relationship with her boyfriend if refuses to cooperate, until he begins to cooperate. Thank you, Lord, for hearing my prayer. Amen.

I agree with others who have said you need to get away with him because he is an abuser. Also, it sounds to me like he may need psychiatric help. You have my prayers.

It is the official position of the Church that all medical and psychiatric avenues are to be tried before the consideration of possession.

It is the considered opinion of all rational people that you and this guy need to talk to a priest.

The priest is the guy in the best position to help.

You have my prayers

Our Father, Who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy Name.
Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done, on earth as it as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive
those who trespass against us. Lead us not into temptation, but
deliver us from evil.
Amen

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with Thee.

Glory be to the Father, to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost.
As it was in the beginning, as it is and ever shall be, world without end.
Amen

Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil.
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray;
and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host -
by the Divine Power of God -
cast into hell, Satan and all the evil spirits,
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls.
Amen.

St. Joseph, pray for us.
