7 Most Powerful Spiritual Warfare Prayers
According to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, “The whole of man’s history has been the story of dour combat with the powers of evil, stretching, so our Lord tells us, from the very dawn of history until the last day. This dramatic situation of the whole world, which is in the power of the evil one, makes man’s life a battle.” Therefore beloved, “Put on the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For our struggle is not against enemies of flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places” (Ephesians 6:11-18).
If you believe you are engaged in spiritual warfare today or if you are just looking for protection from it, here are 7 Most Powerful Spiritual Warfare prayers:
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 Your wounds, hide me; let me never be separated from You; from the evil one, protect me; at the hour of my death, call me and bid me to come to You, that with Your saints I may praise You forever and ever. Amen.
Prayer for Protection
Dear Lord Jesus, thank You for sharing with me Your wonderful ministry of healing and deliverance. Thank You for the healings that I have experienced today. I realize that the sickness of evil is more than my humanity can bear, so I ask You to cleanse me of any sadness, negative thinking or despair that I may have picked up while interceding for others.
If I have been tempted to anger, impatience or lust, cleanse me of those temptations, and replace them with Your love, joy and peace. If any evil spirits have attached themselves to me or pressed me in any way, I command You, spirits of earth, fire, water, the netherworld, or the evil forces of nature, to depart now and go straight to Jesus Christ, for Him to deal with you as He wills.
Come Holy Spirit, renew me, fill me with Your love, peace and joy. Strengthen me where I feel weak and clothe me with Your light. Fill me with Your life. Lord Jesus, please send Your holy angels to minster to me and protect me from all forms of sickness, harm and accidents. I thank You and praise You my Lord, God and King.
Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
my God, in whom I trust.”
Surely He will save you
from the fowler’s snare
and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with His feathers,
and under His wings you will find refuge;
His faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
You will not fear the terror of night,
nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
nor the plague that destroys at midday.
A thousand may fall at your side,
ten thousand at your right hand,
but it will not come near you.
You will only observe with your eyes
and see the punishment of the wicked.
If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
and you make the Most High your dwelling,
no harm will overtake you,
no disaster will come near your tent.
For He will command His angels concerning you
to guard you in all your ways;
they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
“Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
I will protect him, for he acknowledges My Name.
He will call on Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble,
I will deliver him and honor him.
With long life I will satisfy him
and show him My salvation.”
Prayer for Inner Healing
Dear Lord Jesus, please come and heal my wounded and troubled heart. I beg You to heal the torments that are causing anxiety in my life. I beg You, in a particular way, to heal the underlying source of my sinfulness. I beg You to come into my life and heal the psychological harms that struck me in my childhood and from the injuries they have caused throughout my life.
Lord Jesus, You know my burdens. I lay them on Your Good Shepherd’s Heart. I beseech You — by the merits of the great open wound in Your heart — to heal the small wounds that are in mine. Heal 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 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 forgive the afflicted of heart, please, heal my wounded and troubled heart.
Heal, O Lord Jesus, all those intimate wounds that are the root cause of my physical illness. I offer You my heart. Accept it, Lord, purify it and give me the sentiments of Your Divine Heart.
Heal me, O Lord, from the pain caused by the death of my loved ones. 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, and Your loving presence among all men. Amen.
Prayer for Spiritual Canopy
Dear Lord Jesus, please forgive me for all the times I have not submitted to Your will in my life. Please forgive me for all my sinful actions, making agreements with the enemy, and for believing the devil’s lies. I now submit to You as my Lord, dear Jesus. Now I break every agreement that I have made with the enemy.
Lord Jesus, please send an assignment of angels to remove and bind to the abyss all demons and their devices that had access to me because I believed their lies. I now ask You to establish a hedge of protection around me, over me and under me, and seal it with Your blood, Lord Jesus Christ.
I now choose to put on the full armor of God and ask that You cleanse me and seal me, body, mind, soul and spirit, with Your blood, Lord Jesus Christ. Please have Your angelic army bind up and remove all demons, their devices, and all their power from within this protective hedge and have them sent to the abyss.
Please have Your angels destroy all demonic, occult or witchcraft assignments directed against me. Please have Your angels stand guard over me and protect me from all attacks of the enemy. I thank You for establishing an impenetrable shield of protection around me, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
Prayer Against Evil
Spirit of our God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Most Holy Trinity, descend upon me. Please purify me, mold me, fill me with Yourself, and use me. Banish all the forces of evil from me; destroy them and vanquish them so that I can be healthy and do good deeds.
Banish from me all curses, hexes, spells, witchcraft, black magic, demonic assignments, malefice and the evil eye; diabolic infestations, oppressions, possessions; all that is evil and sinful; jealousy, treachery, envy; all physical, psychological, moral, spiritual and diabolical ailments; as well as all enticing spirits, deaf, dumb, blind, mute and sleeping spirits, new-age spirits, occult spirits, religious spirits, antichrist spirits, and any other spirits of death and darkness.
I command and bid all the powers who molest me — by the power of God Almighty, in the Name of Jesus Christ my Savior — to leave me forever, and to be consigned into the everlasting lake of fire, that they may never again touch me or any other creature in the entire world. Amen.
Binding Evil Spirits
In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I stand with the power of the Lord God Almighty to bind Satan and all his evil spirits, demonic forces, satanic powers, principalities, along with all kings and princes of terrors, from the air, water, fire, ground, netherworld, and the evil forces of nature.
I take authority over all demonic assignments and functions of destruction sent against me, and I expose all demonic forces as weakened, defeated enemies of Jesus Christ. I stand with the power of the Lord, God Almighty, to bind all enemies of Christ present together, all demonic entities under their one and highest authority, and I command these spirits into the abyss to never again return.
I arise today with the power of the Lord God Almighty to call forth the heavenly host, the holy angels of God, to surround and protect, and cleanse with God’s holy light all areas vacated by the forces of evil. I ask the Holy Spirit to permeate my mind, heart, body, soul and spirit, creating a hunger and thirst for God’s holy Word, and to fill me with the life and love of my Lord, Jesus Christ.
