(Day 5 of 5-Day Mid-Year Fasting &Prayer)

Scripture Reading: Exodus 20:1-2

Today we rise against all forms of demonic bondages and oppression in our life, in our families, and societies. St. Paul writing to the Colossians says, “He has rescued us from the dominion of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of His beloved Son, in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins…” (Col. 1:13-14) Brethren you have being rescued from demonic oppression and bondage, Jesus has set you free. So stand up in righteousness (if you have repented and have confessed your sins, if you have forgiven those who wronged you, you are standing in right relationship with God through His mercy, and do not allow Satan to make you feel the guilt of past sins), stand up in faith, stand on God’s word and enforce your freedom with the assistance of heavenly Angels led by Archangel Michael.

Isaiah 60:2 says “For behold, darkness will cover the earth And deep darkness the peoples; But the LORD will rise upon you And His glory will appear upon you.” Get angry in your spirit, and say, enough of the reign of darkness in my life, enough of the reign of darkness in my family, enough of the reign of darkness in the society. Today glory of God will rise and shine over my life, over my family in the name of Jesus.

Are you suffering from diabolic possession, diabolic oppression, diabolic obsession, diabolic infestation, diabolic subjugation, etc. Fr. Amorth explains that there are four principal causes that may cause one to fall victim to these evils: Pure Divine Permission like in the case of Job, Subject to a Curse -Here, too, the victim is innocent [may be innocent if it is only oppressed, that is, tempted or harassed,] but there is culpability on the part of whoever casts and/or commissions the curse. [Generally, no one ever actually becomes possessed by a demon unless they are living in, and are guilty of, mortal sin.] By the word curse, I mean the intention of harming others through demonic intervention. This can be achieved in many ways: spell, binding, evil eye, malediction, and so on. The matter is serious, but we need to be on guard against misconceptions. Grave Hardening of Sin-Judas Iscariot is the classical Gospel example. The many individuals who abandon themselves to sexual perversions, violence, and drugs fall into this group. The heinous crime of abortion aggravates this situation. Proximity to Evil Places or Persons-This includes attending spiritualistic session, dabbling into magic, or consulting magicians, witch doctors, and some card readers; also, practicing the occult, belonging to satanic sects, or practising in rites that climax with black masses, and so on, put us at great risk. The majority of the messages we receive are from people who are in some sort of bondage to Satan or have friends or family members who are suffering. In most cases these individuals need deliverance prayers. If you are seeking help, you must first start by ridding yourself of those things that prevent God from working in your life.

Prayer Points:

  1. Take the prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel meditatively.
  2. Kyrie eleison. God, our Lord, King of ages, All-powerful and All mighty, You Who made everything and transformed everything simply by Your will. You Who in Babylon changed into dew in the flames of the “seven-time 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 the presence of every diabolical power, and machination; every evil influence, spells, or evil eye 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.”
