Beautiful Spiritual Warfare prayer from Fr. Gabriele Amorth

I was just reminded today about a beautiful prayer by Fr. Gabriele Amorth.
It is in Fr. Ripperger's great book of prayers as well:
I was unaware of the origin of the prayer but, according to this article, it was written by Fr. Amorth.

Since it appeared there, I will also re-post it here, but go buy the source book by Fr. Amorth, An Exorcist Tells His Story (buy here) and Fr. Ripperger's book for more great prayers and spiritual insights.
Regarding the language in the prayer:
  • We can ask Our Lord that He destroy the workings of evil anywhere and everywhere and in the lives of all people.
  • We can only command demons, in the Name of Jesus, to depart as regards their attack against us or those under our authority.
This prayer addresses this reality well.


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.
