Protection against Evil Spirits

People often tell me that there seems to be evil spirits or strange spiritual things happening in their house, or someone has put a spell on them, or on someone they know. We know that the devil is real and works on many levels. He mostly torments people by tempting them to sin. That’s why, as Paul says in the quote above: Jesus came into to world –  to save sinners!

In the Gospels we frequently see Jesus casting out demons from people. Below are some prayers that can be used to protect yourself or others from the power of evil. Also, the most powerful prayer we have is the Mass. Be sure to come to Mass frequently, and invite those having spiritual problems to come to Mass, and to go to Confession, to receive the graces needed for divine protection from evil. If matters seem serious, best to contact a priest for assistance.

Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel

St. Michael, the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do you, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who wander through the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
