Prayer Against Every Evil

Considering numerous revolutions around the globe, violations of human rights in almost every country, and many people suffering illnesses or poverty, it’s time to put this prayer on my website. I like it because it covers all creatures, except for the devil and demons, of course. It comes from An Exorcist Tells His Story by Father Gabriele Amorth, published by Ignatius Press in 1999, pages 200-201. You can meet Father Amorth in a superb documentary by Exorcist director William Friedkin. Read my review of The Devil & Father Amorth by clicking here.

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, vanquish 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, jealousy, perfidy, envy, physical, psychological, moral, spiritual, diabolical ailments.

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 evil powers 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 the archangel, Saint Raphael the archangel, our guardian angels, and where they will be crushed under the heel of the Immaculate Virgin Mary.

  1. Anita,

    I just prayed that prayer against every evil by Father Gabriel Amorth; I have one of his books. There is so much to pray about in our country, to keep our liberty to do good.

  3. […] Incidentally, William Friedkin wanted to meet Father Amorth because he had read all of Father’s books published in English and it seems in the movie that Friedkin’s favorite is “An Exorcist Tells His Story.” In the book, is Father’s Prayer Against Every Evil, which you can read by clicking here.
