I adapted this prayer from a prayer in Manual of Minor Exorcisms by Roman Catholic Bishop Julian Porteous.  I led our congregation in praying it together following a sermon on the Gerasenes demoniac from Luke 8:26-39.  It is the type of prayer that I would recommend praying each day.  The final paragraph is an imperative form of deliverance spoken to any evil spirits.

Lord, almighty, merciful and omnipotent God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, drive out from me all influence of evil spirits.  Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, I plead you to break any chain that the devil has on me.  Pour upon me the most precious blood of your Son.  May his immaculate and redeeming blood break all bonds of my body and soul.  Holy God banish from me all the forces of evil, so that I can be healthy and free to do good deeds for the glory of the name of Jesus.

I ask you for the intercession and help of your mighty angels on my behalf.

In the name of Jesus Christ and by the power of his cross, resurrection and ascension, I command all demons that could have any influence over me to leave me forever.  By Jesus’ scourging, his crown of thorns, his cross, by his blood and authority over heaven and earth, I command all evil spirits to leave me.  By the true God, by the Holy God, by God who can do all, in the name of Jesus, my Savior and Lord, leave me now and go quietly from here. Amen.

victory in jesus
