Some Prayers Fr. Amorth, Exorcist, Recommends

Seemed as well to share these prayers from Fr. Gabriel Amorth's book. If even one person reads this or is concerned for the desperate soul who left a comment, then one more prayer the better.
Certainly, we can pray to God for help and deliverance, but these prayers are obviously proven efficacious, or Fr. Amorth would not have included them in his book.

I pray them as I type, and ask God to deliver all evil forces that have attached to souls of the earth--past, present and future.

Prayer for Deliverance

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.

Anima Christi

Soul of Christ, sanctify me; Body of Christ, save me; Blood of Christ, inebriate me; Water from the side of Christ, wash me; Passion of Christ, strengthen me; O good Jesus, hear me; within Thy wounds, hide me; let me never be separated from Thee; from the evil one, deliver me; at the hour of my death, call me and bid me come to Thee, that with Thy saints, I may praise Thee forever and ever. Amen.

Prayer Against Every Evil

Heal, O Lord, all those wounds that have been the cause of all the evil that is rooted in my life. I want to forgive all those who have offended me. Look to those inner sores that make me unable to forgive. You who came to forgive the afflicted of heart, please, heal my own heart.

Heal, my Lord Jesus, those intimate wounds that cause me physical illness. I offer You my heart. Accept it, Lord, purify it and give me the sentiments of Your Divine Heart. Help me to be meek and humble.

Heal me, O Lord, from the pain caused by the death of my loved ones, which is oppressing me. Grant me to regain peace and joy in the knowledge that You are the Resurrection and the Life. Make me an authentic witness to Your Resurrection, Your victory over sin and death, Your living presence among us. Amen.

Prayer Against Malefice [from the Greek Ritual]

Kyrie eleison. God, our Lord, King of ages, All-powerful and All-mighty, You Who made everything and Who transform everything simply by Your will. You Who in Babylon changed into dew the flames of the 'seven-times hotter' furnace and protected and saved the three holy children. You are the doctor and the physician of our soul. You are the salvation of those who turn to You. We beseech You to make powerless, banish, and drive out every diabolic power, presence, and machination; every evil influence, malefice, or evil eye and all evil actions aimed against Your servant [name of person/s]. Where there is envy and malice, give us an abundance of goodness, endurance, victory, and charity. O Lord, You Who love man, we beg You to reach out Your powerful hands and Your most high and mighty arms and send the angel of peace over us, to protect us, body and soul. May he keep at bay and vanquish every evil power, every poison or malice invoked against us by corrupt and envious people. Then, under the protection of Your authority may we sing, in gratitude, 'The Lord is my salvation; whom should I fear? I will not fear evil because You are with me, my God, my strength, my powerful Lord, Lord of peace, Father of all ages."

Yes, Lord our God, be merciful to us, Your image, and save your servant [name of person/s] from every threat or harm from the evil one, and protect him/her by raising him/her above all evil. We ask You this through the intercession of our Most Blessed, glorious Lady, Mary ever Virgin, Mother of God, of the most splendid archangels and all Your saints. Amen!

Prayer for Inner Healing

Lord Jesus, You came to heal our wounded and troubled hearts. I beg You to heal the torments that cause anxiety in my heart; I beg You, in a particular way, to heal all who are the cause of sin. I beg You to come into my life and heal me of the psychological harms that struck me in my early years and from the injuries that they caused through my life.

Lord Jesus, You know my burdens. I lay them all on Your Good Shepherd's Heart. I beseech You--by the merits of the great, open wound in Your heart-to heal the small wounds that re in mine. Heal the pain of my memories, so that nothing that has happened to me will cause me to remain in pain and anguish, filled with anxiety.

Heal, O Lord, all those wounds that have been the cause of all the evi that is rooted in my life. I want to forgive all those who have offended me. Look to those inner sores that make me unable to forgive. You Who came to forgive the afflicted of heart, please, heal my own heart.

Heal, my Lord Jesus, those intimate wounds that cause me physical illness. I offer You my heart. Accept it, Lord, purify it and give me the sentiments of Your Divine Heart. Help me to be meek and humble.

Heal me, O Lord, from the pain caused by the death of my loved ones, which is oppressing me. rant me to regain peace and joy in the knowledge that You are the Resurrection and the Life. Make me an authentic witness to Your Resurrection, Your victory over sin and death, Your living presence among us. Amen.

All the more, the desire for pure prayer comes through as a good desire, for then the prayer of the heart would be in union with communing with God. It does seem that the words would be of God's thought-flashings-without-thought, but sheer essence of pure love. Would that not be a pure prayer for such souls?

But, as it is said, that pure prayer is a rare gift of God, and so are words less rare gifts of God. One ought, then, repeat with reverence and much love and devotion, these words given as written and spoken prayer.

Dear Anonymous,

We are many who are amidst "cities" of varying types, trying to keep a heart of the desert! I'll pray for you, and please pray for me. God bless you during this Lenten desert.

I speak English some but I do not understand what this means in the prayer, "Heal, My Lord Jesus, those intimate wounds that cause me physical illness."

I don't understand what is being said here about physical illness coming from "those intimate wounds". I'm not sure this is true Catholic teaching and would be glad for an explanation of what is intention of this.

We can be assured it is true Catholic teaching, as the prayer would not be utilized by Fr. Amorth, a leading exorcist priest in Rome. The prayer, I think, comes from an old ritual of the Church. (We'd have to ask Fr. Amorth--or some priest familiar with prayers of deliverance).

My prayerful "take" on the lines "Heal, My Lord Jesus, those intimate wounds that cause me physical illness"--and in reading the other lines gaining the thought flow of the prayer--is that these intimate wounds would be those of the heart (ie. emotional sufferings/wounds) that often cause us to become physically ill).

For example, a spouse's infidelity in marriage can cause a most intimate wound that can lead to physical illness from the stress and anguish--or even the change in circumstance such as requiring a single mother to have to work outside the home and then handle the children, as well, on little income.

I'm not sure what you wonder about regarding this prayer being true Catholic teaching, for even this section deals with asking the Lord to heal the interior aspects that can cause bodily illness.

Also, there are stresses in life and sins that cause intimate wounds (of the mind, the heart, the soul). Then, as this woundedness progresses without healing, the body sooner or later shows the manifestations of illness, with blood pressure problems, sleeping disorders, cancer, or any number of malfunctions.

Hope this helps. Wish Fr. Amorth or some exorcist priest could answer this question, but I'll bring it up with one of the four priests I encounter daily.
