5 Most Powerful Prayers to Dispel Evil From Your Life

The devil is real. Whether one believes in him or not does not make this fact untrue. The sooner one believes in Jesus Christ (He Who is the Word made flesh incarnate), His words and warnings about this issue, the better. Make no mistake, there is nothing the devil loves more than a person who does not believe in him. In denying his existence — and thus the very teachings of God Himself — he (Satan) is free to wreak havoc in a person’s life with little to no consequence or threat of sending him back to the pit of hell where he belongs.

If, however, you do believe in him, and if you are wanting to drive him out of a certain area(s) of your life, by the grace of God, we have been given through the divinely-inspired teachings of Mother Church incredibly powerful prayers to send him packing — tail between the legs and all!

A chief exorcist of Rome by the name of Father Gabriele Amorth, a man who has come face-to-face with the devil and his minions on a regular basis and who has performed more than 70,000 exorcisms(!) and thus armed with years upon years of personal eyewitness testimony, has recommended five most powerful prayers to rid one’s life of evil. 

It must be understood that since the time of creation, the devil has been “prowling around like a roaring lion looking for [someone] to devour” (1 Pet 5:8). While his presence and power is real, satan is no match for one who possesses the power of the Holy Spirit and suited up in the full armor of God (Eph 6:10-18). In other words, the devil has no power over a child of God (you!) so … fear not! (Is 41:10) Satan’s power is not only limited by God, but can be thoroughly rebuked by those who call upon God’s intervention — and, yes, some prayers are more powerful than others!


As stated above, Amorth recommends five prayers in particular to combat the evil that my be plaguing you or your loved ones life today. He does note in his book An Exorcist Tells His Story however, that while these prayers are powerful they should always be joined with the sacrament of Confession as well as frequent reception of Holy Communion (definitely do your research about the power of the Sacrament of Confession and Holy Communion if you are unfamiliar).

It should also be stressed that anyone who prays these prayers should do so with the greatest amount of humility; recognizing that God is the One who ultimately has the power to expel evil from a person’s life. We, mere humans — His creation — do not in our own strength and might have any power over Satan. Only the Lord of Heaven and Earth possesses such authority forever and ever amen.

To conclude

This being stated, if you are struggling today with a malevolent force or spirit, or if there seems to be a darkening cloud looming overhead, delay not in praying these 5 Most Powerful Prayers to Dispel Evil From Your Life. Pray them daily if possible, persevere in prayer, and always believe in God’s greatness and ability. As your Father in Heaven, He loves you and will do everything possible to protect those who strive to walk in the Light.

5 Most Powerful Prayers to Dispel Evil From Your Life

Anima Cristi

The Anima Cristi (Latin for “Soul of Christ”) is a prayer that dates back to medieval times. Originally attributed to St. Ignatius of Loyola of 1491–1556, it is now believed to predate him by as much as a century-and-a-half. It is a mystical prayer that no doubt touches one’s soul on a extraordinarly profound level. The words are sacred, transcending all time and all centuries and, thus, with the help of the Holy Spirit can lead the soul into an immediate union with Christ.

Soul of Christ, sanctify me;
Body of Christ, save me;
Blood of Christ, inebriate me;
Water from the side of Christ, wash me;
Passion of Christ, strengthen me;
O good Jesus, hear me;
Within Thy wounds, hide me;

Let me never be separated from Thee; 
From the evil one, deliver me;
At the hour of my death, call me and bid me come to Thee,

that with Thy saints,
I may praise Thee forever and ever. Amen.

Kyrie Eleison

The Kyrie Eleison (which means “Lord, have mercy”) is often prayed against malefice (an evil spell or enchantment) and finds its origins in the Greek Ritual. It is a liturgical Catholic and Orthodox prayer which is often said during Holy Mass (during or after the Penitential Preparation to receive the Sacrament of the Eucharist). In short, this is a prayer from the heart which finds its roots in the outcry of human anguish — the belief that God owes us nothing, we deserve nothing, and that everything He gives to us comes from a divine and unfathomable level of love and mercy.

God, our Lord, King of ages,
all-powerful and All-mighty,
You Who made everything
and Who transforms everything
simply by Your will;
You Who in Babylon changed
into dew the flames of the
‘seven-times hotter’ furnace
and protected and saved the
three holy children;
You are the doctor and the
physician of our soul.
You are the salvation of those
who turn to You.
We beseech You to make powerless,
banish, and drive out every
diabolic power, presence, and machination;

every evil influence, malefice, or evil eye
and all evil actions aimed against
your servant …

[name of person(s) here].
Where there is envy and malice,
give us an abundance of goodness,
endurance, victory, and charity.
O Lord, You Who love man,
we beg You to reach out Your powerful
hands and Your most high and
mighty arms and send the
Angel of Peace over us, to protect us,
body and soul.
May He keep at bay and vanquish
every evil power, every poison or malice,
invoked against us by corrupt and
envious people.
Then, under the protection of Your
Authority may we sing in gratitude,
“The Lord is my salvation;
Whom should I fear?
I will not fear evil because You are with me,
My God, my strength, my powerful Lord, 

Lord of peace, Father of all ages.”

Yes, Lord our God, be merciful to us,
Your image, and save Your servant …

[name of person(s) here]
from every threat or harm from the evil one,
and protect him/her by raising him/her
above all evil.
We ask You this through the intercession
of our Most Blessed, glorious Lady,
Mary ever Virgin, Mother of God,
of the most splendid archangels
And all Your saints. Amen!

Prayer for Inner Healing

Lord Jesus, You came to heal our wounded and troubled hearts.
I beg You to heal the torments that cause anxiety in my heart;
I beg You, in a particular way, to heal all who are the cause of sin.
I beg You to come into my life and heal me of the psychological harms
that struck me in my early years and from the injuries that they caused through my life.

Lord Jesus, You know my burdens.
I lay them all on Your Good Shepherd’s heart.
I beseech You — by the merits of the great,
open the wound in Your heart to heal the small wounds that are in mine.

Heal the pain of my memories,
so that nothing that has happened to me will cause me to remain in pain
and anguish, filled with anxiety.

Heal, O Lord, all those wounds that have been the cause of all the evil
that is rooted in my life.
I want to forgive all those who have offended me.
Look to those inner sores that make me unable to forgive.

You Who came to forge the afflicted of heart, please,
Heal my own heart.

Heal, my Lord Jesus, those intimate wounds that cause me physical illness.
I offer You my heart. Accept it, Lord, purify it and give me the sentiments of Your Divine Heart.
Help me to be meek and humble. 
Heal me, O Lord, from the pain caused by the death of my loved ones,
which is oppressing me.
Grant me to regain peace and joy in the knowledge 

that You are the Resurrection and the Life.
Make me an authentic witness to Your Resurrection,
Your victory over sin and death,
Your living presence among us.

Prayer for Deliverance

My Lord, You are all-powerful,
You are God, You are Father.
We beg You through the intercession
and help of the archangels,
Michael, Raphael and Gabriel, for the
deliverance of our brothers and sisters
who are enslaved by the evil one. 

All saints of Heaven,
come to our aid.

From anxiety, sadness and obsessions,
we beg You, free us, O Lord.
From hatred, fornication, envy, we beg You,
free us, O Lord.
From thoughts of jealousy, rage, and death, we beg You,
free us, O Lord.
From every thought of suicide and abortion, we beg You,
free us, O Lord.
From every form of sinful sexuality, we beg You,
free us, O Lord.
From every form of sinful sexuality, we beg You,
free us, O Lord.
From every division in our family, and every harmful friendship, we beg You,
free us, O Lord.
From every sort of spell, malefice, witchcraft, and every form of the occult,
we beg You, free us, O Lord.

Lord, You Who said, “I leave you peace, My peace I give you,” grant that, through the intercession of the Virgin Mary, we may be liberated from every evil spell
and enjoy Your peace always.
In the Name of Christ, our Lord. 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 all the forces of evil from me,
destroy them, vanish them, so that I can be healthy
and do good deeds.

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

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 power who 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 the everlasting hell,
where they will be bound by Saint Michael the archangel,
Saint Gabriel, Saint Raphael, our guardian angels,
and where they will be crushed under the heel
of the Immaculate Virgin Mary.

  1. Need God's Protection

    I once thought that black magic, witchcraft, and spells were fake and just a way to scam people out of their money. However, I was wrong. These practices do EXIST, particularly in developing and undeveloped areas or countries, and can have serious effects on people’s lives.
