A very powerful prayer for deliverance from evil

Some time ago the Lord gave me the grace to come across a very powerful prayer for deliverance from evil. This powerful prayer of deliverance has been recommended by one of the late leading exoricisms who performed some 70,000 exorcisms, Fr Gabriel Amorth, former chief exorcist of Rome.  

This prayer could be found in his book An Exorcist Tells His Story. It is the last of five prayers Fr Gabiel Amorth generously offers to us to help us combat any form of evil that can oppress us individually. While asserting that these prayers are, in fact, powerful, the cannot be set apart from the sacrament of Confession and the constant reception of the Eucharist. When you and me pray this prayer and other prayers of deliverance let us keep in our minds and hearts to pray them with humility, particularly by acknowledging the reality that God alone can, in fact, can cast out evil. Only the Lord of Heaven and Earth has the power to do so.

Another consoling fact is that even if the devil, since Eden, has always been prowling around like a roaring lion looking for [someone] to devour (1 Pet 5:8) his real presence, instead of frighten us should put us more and more to call upon God’s intervention to rebuke him. Satan’s power is limited by God’s unlimited and omnipotent power.

Here is the Prayer for Deliverance suggested to us by Fr Gabriel Amorth:

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 division in our family, and every harmful friendship,

We beg You, Free us, O Lord.

From every sort of spell, malefic, 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.

It would be a very good idea if we, from time, ask the Lord to make on us a good sprinkle clean by using this Prayer for Deliverance.
