Beloved and recently-deceased Vatican exorcist, Father Gabriele Amorth, penned a “Prayer Against Every Evil” to fight against spiritual attacks.

Please remember to pray for the repose of his soul.

Why pray the “Prayer Against Every Evil?

prayer against every evil

In a world pervaded by skepticism, it’s easy to assume that none of our trials are spiritual. Yet, if  we consider that  Saints like Catherine of Siena and Padre Pio, were themselves tormented by demons, what about us?

Referring to demons,  Padre Pio said:  [otw_shortcode_quote border_style=”bordered”]“The Devil does not want to lose this battle. He takes on many forms. For several days now, he has appeared with his brothers who are armed with batons and pieces of iron. One of the difficulties is that they appear in many disguises. “There were several times when they threw me out of my bed and dragged me out of my bedroom. I am patient, however, and I know Jesus, Our Lady, my Guardian Angel, St. Joseph and St. Francis are always with me.”[/otw_shortcode_quote]

Make no mistake: the best way to fight against evil is to remain in a state of grace, attend Mass and receive the sacraments.

However, the Church  has given us additional resources- Catholic prayers of protection – we can use to fight the Devil’s wiles,  thanks be to God.

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. Amen.

  • Marti Thelen says:

    Please pray for my son who has been under the care of a psychologist, psychiatrist, medical doctor, and counseling for 5 years. There seems to be no relief or reason for his depression and anger. He simply can’t control it. He has attacked 2 of his siblings and we had to ask him to leave our home for good. As his mother, I am sure there are demons influencing him.

  • I am a Roman Catholic. I have seen some dark figures included a pitch black eye on the wall and even I heard evil voices in my right ear with my hearing aid in my life. I returned back to Catholicism.
