Protection Prayers


 Please note, that we are not promoting one religion over another. The prayers below are based in Christianity; however, you can tailor the following prayers to whatever suits you. What is important is that you are asking for protection from God and angels. The actual words are just words – if you leave words out, they won’t care. All you need to do is to ask – and you shall receive, as long as you have faith that it will work. Faith is important, if you recite these without faith in your heart, the words are useless.  Feel free to modify the following prayers to fit your spiritual needs and beliefs.

There are several prayers broken down by category. Since this is lengthy, you can either scroll down to find prayers for your liking, or you can click on the following bookmarks and they will bring you to that section of this page.

General Protection Prayer

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

God, our Lord, King of ages, All-powerful and Almighty, You Who made everything and Who transforms everything simply by Your will. You are the doctor and the physician of our souls. 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 and all evil actions aimed against your servant. . . 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 come to our aid.

Help us, who are made in Your image, 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 from every threat or harm from the evil one, and protect him by raising him 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 yours saints. Amen."

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." 

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I bind to myself today - God's Power to guide me, God's Might to uphold me, God's Wisdom to teach me, God's Eye to watch over me God's Ear to hear me,

God's Word to give me speech, God's Hand to guide me, God's Way to lie before me, God's Shield to shelter me, God's Host to secure me,

Against the snares of demons, Against the seductions of vices, Against the lusts of nature,

Against everyone who meditates injury to me, Whether far or near, Whether few or with many.

Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me, Christ within me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me, Christ at my right, Christ at my left, Christ in the fort, Christ in the chariot seat, Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me, Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks to me, Christ in every eye that sees me, Christ in every ear that hears me.

Prayer to Saint Michael

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host - by the Divine Power of God - cast into hell, Satan and all the evil spirits,
who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dear St. Michael, the Archangel, protect us, both body and soul from the Evil One, his followers and anyone who would approach us with malicious intent.

Protect us, our bodies, and our cars, as we travel about in our daily activities. Protect us, our bodies, our home, our property and possessions from all demonic retaliation.

Father, if there are unholy Angels in, on, near or around us. We nail and hold them fast and silence them. We decommission, bind and encapsulate them through the Power of the Shed Blood of Your Son, Jesus Christ. We bring them up to your presence immediately Lord to deal with as you see fit. May you fill any empty spaces and lonely places within us with your love and your light. Thank you Father, In Jesus' name. Amen.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Glorious Prince of the heavenly hosts and victor over rebellious spirits, be mindful of me who am so weak and sinful and yet so prone to pride and ambition. Lend me, I pray, thy powerful aid in every temptation and difficulty, and above all do not forsake me in my last struggle with the powers of evil. Amen.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

St. Michael, the Archangel! Glorious Prince, chief and champion of the heavenly hosts; guardian of the souls of men; conqueror of the rebel angels! How beautiful art thou, in thy heaven-made armor. We love thee, dear Prince of Heaven!

We, thy happy clients, yearn to enjoy thy special protection. Obtain for us from God a share of thy sturdy courage; pray that we may have a strong and tender love for our Redeemer and, in every danger or temptation, be invincible against the enemy of our souls. O standard-bearer of our salvation! Be with us in our last moments and when our souls quit this earthly exile, carry them safely to the judgement seat of Christ, and may Our Lord and Master bid thee bear us speedily to the kingdom of eternal bliss. Teach us ever to repeat the sublime cry: "Who is like unto God?" Amen.

Prayer Against Any Evil

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I humbly ask that 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, black magic, diabolic infestations, oppressions, possessions; all that is evil: including 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 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, Saint Raphael, our guardian angels, and where they will be crushed under the heel of the Immaculate Virgin Mary.

In the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit. (PERFORM THE SIGN OF THE CROSS)

I remember that I am sealed into the New Covenant by the blood of the Lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world.

I asked to be filled and protected with the glory light of heaven and to radiate God's light in all I do and to all that I meet this day.

May I be so filled with God's holiness that heaven abides within me and no sin, sickness, bitterness, doubt or fear finds any place to lodge in me. May love, faith, humility, courage, wisdom, joy, peace and righteousness, fill me and radiate through me so that God's Kingdom comes around me today.

Signed, sealed and protected by God and hidden in Christ I know that nothing can separate me from God's love, joy and peace this day. God will never leave me and I will never leave him. I am His and He is mine. He is my Father and I am His beloved. May He delight in me while I delight in His presence all this day. Amen.

Protection for Family or Household

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Trusting in the promise that whatever we ask the Father in Jesus' name He will do, I(we) now approach You Father with confidence in Our Lord's words and in Your infinite power and love for me(us) and for our household and family, and with the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God, the Blessed Apostles Peter and Paul, Blessed Archangel Michael, my(our) guardian angel(s) and the guardian angels of our household and family, with all the saints and angels of heaven, and Holy in the power of His blessed Name, as ask you Father to protect our household and its members and keep us from the harassment of the devil and his minions.

Father I(we) ask in desire to serve You and adore You and to live our lives for You that You build a hedge of protection around our household, like that which surrounded Job, and to help us to keep that hedge repaired and the gate locked so that the devil and his minions have no access or means to breach the hedge except by your expressed will.

Father, I(we) am(are) powerless against the spiritual forces of evil and recognize my(our) utter dependence on You and Your power. Look with mercy upon me(us) and upon our household and family. Do not look upon our sins, O Lord; rather, look at the sufferings of your Beloved Son and see the Victim who's bitter passion and death has reconciled us to You. By the victory of the cross, protect us from all evil and rebuke any evil spirits who wish to attack, influence, or breach Your hedge of protection in any way. Send them back to Hell and fortify Your Hedge for our protection by the blood of Your Son, Jesus. Send your Holy Angels to watch over us and protect us.

Father, all of these things I(we) ask in the most holy name of Jesus Christ, Your Son. Thank you, Father, for hearing my(our) prayer. I(we) love You, I(we) worship You, I(we) thank You and I(we) trust in You.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Spirit of our God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Most Holy Trinity, descend upon us. Please purify us, mold us, fill us with yourself, and use us. Banish all the forces of evil from this home and family; destroy them, vanquish them so that they can be healthy and do good deeds.

Banish from them all spells, witchcraft, black magic, demonic assignments, malice, and the evil eye; diabolic infestations, oppressions, possessions; all that is evil and sinful; jealousy, treachery, envy; all physical, psychological, moral, spiritual and diabolical ailments, and any other spirits of death and darkness.

I command and bid all the powers who molest this family—by the power of God Almighty, in the name of Jesus Christ our Savior—to leave this home forever, and to be consigned into the everlasting lake of fire, that they may never again return. Amen.

Scripture Verses

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

And the LORD said to Satan, "Have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, who fears God and turns away from evil?" Then Satan answered the LORD, "Does Job fear God for nought? Hast thou not put a hedge about him and his house and all that he has, on every side? Thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his possessions have increased in the land. --Job 1:8-10]
 
 
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you men of double mind. -- James 4:7-8
 
 
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help.
My help [cometh] from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.
He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that kept thee will not slumber.
Behold, he that kept Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord [is] thy keeper: the Lord [is] thy shade upon thy right hand.
The sun shall not smite thee by day, nor the moon by night.
The Lord shall preserve thee from all evil: he shall preserve thy soul.
The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth,
and even for evermore.  -- Psalms 121: 1-8
 
 

The Lord hear thee in the day of trouble; the name of the God of Jacob defend thee; Send thee help from the sanctuary, and strengthen thee out of Zion...

We will rejoice in thy salvation, and in the name of our God we will set up our banners: the Lord fulfill all thy petitions. Now know I that the Lord saves his anointed; he will hear him from his holy heaven with the saving strength of his right hand. – Psalms 20: 1-2: 5-6
 
 
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures;
He leads me beside still waters.
He restores my soul;
He leads me in paths of righteousness for His name's sake.
Even when I walk in the valley of darkness, I will fear no evil for You are with me;
Your rod and Your staff-they comfort me.
You set a table before me in the presence of my adversaries; you anointed my head with oil; my cup overflows.
May only goodness and kindness pursue me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for length of days. – Psalm 23
 
 
The Lord is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid?
When evil men advance against me to devour my flesh,
when my enemies and my foes attack me,
they will stumble and fall.
Though an army besieges me, my heart will not fear;
though war break out against me, even then will I be confident. – Psalms 27: 1-3
 
 

You who live in the shelter of the Most High, who abide in the shadow of the Almighty, will say to the Lord, “My refuge and my fortress; my God, in whom I trust.” For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence; he will cover you with his pinions, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness is a shield and buckler.

You will not fear the terror of the night, or the arrow that flies by day, or the pestilence that stalks in darkness, or the destruction that wastes at noonday. A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you. You will only look with your eyes and see the punishments of the wicked. Because you have made the Lord your refuge, the Most High your dwelling place, no evil shall befall you, no scourge come near your tent.

For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways. On their hands they will bear you up, so that you will not dash your foot against a stone. You will tread on the lion and the adder, the young lion and the serpent you will trample under foot.

Those who love me, I will deliver; I will protect those who know my name. When they call to me, I will answer them; I will be with them in trouble, I will rescue them and honor them. With long life I will satisfy them, and show them my salvation. – Psalm 91
 


I lift up my eyes to the hills --where does my help come from?
My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip --He who watches over you will not slumber;
indeed, He who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.

The LORD watches over you --the LORD is your shade at your right hand;

the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.
The LORD will keep you from all harm -- He will watch over your life;

the LORD will watch over your coming and going both now and forever more. - - Psalm 121
 
 

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his power. Put on the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.

For our struggle is not against enemies of blood and flesh, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers of this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

Therefore take up the whole armor of God, so that you may be able to withstand on that evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm.

Stand therefore, and fasten the belt of truth around your waist, and put on the breastplate of righteousness. As shoes for your feet put on whatever will make you ready to proclaim the gospel of peace. With all of these, take the shield of faith, with which you will be able to quench all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. -- Ephesians 6:14-20
