Powerful Prayer to Defeat Satan & Evil Forces

“O Divine Eternal Father,
in union with Thy Divine Son and the Holy Spirit,
and through the Immaculate Heart of Mother Mary,
I beseech Thee to destroy the power of Thy greatest
enemy – the evil spirits that surround us.


Cast them into the deepest recesses of hell, Lord,
and chain them there forever!
Take possession of Thy Kingdom which Thou
hast created and which is rightfully Thine.


O Heavenly Father, grant us the reign of the
Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate
Heart of Mother Mary.
I repeat this prayer out of pure love for
and trust in Thee, with every beat of my
heart, and with every breath I shall take.


Thy will be done, now and forevermore.
In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen.”

-Prayer adapted from Richard H. Ackerman; Bishop of Covington, KY (March 1973)

“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore put on the full Armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand”Eph. 6:12-13.
