In the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit Amen.

Most glorious Prince of the Celestial army, Archangel St. Michael, defend us in the battle against the powers of darkness and their spiritual maliciousness.

Come to our aid, who were created by God and redeemed
 with the blood of Jesus Christ, His Son, and deliver us from the tyranny of the devil.

You are venerated by the Church as its Patron and Guardian and to you, the Lord has entrusted the souls who one day will occupy the heavenly mansions.

Pray, therefore, the God of Peace, to keep the devil crushed under our feet, so that he won't be able to enslave men unto himself and neither cause any harm to the Church.
Unite our prayers to Thine own and present them to Almighty God, so that His divine mercies may descend upon us.

Chain Satan and thrust him into the bottomless pit, whence he won't be able to seduce souls anymore.


In the name of Jesus Christ, our God and Lord and with the intercession of the Immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of God, of St. Michael Archangel, the holy apostles Peter and Paul and all the Saints, we confidently undertake the battle against the attacks and snares of the devil.
Psalm. (To be recited standing and at the indication + should be made the sign of the cross).
May the Lord arise and His enemies be vanquished and may all those who hate Him, vanish from His presence.

As the smoke vanishes and as wax melts in fire, likewise should sinners perish from before His face.

V. ) Behold the Cross of the Lord, flee hostile powers.
R.) Has won the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the descendant of David.
V.) May Thy mercy O Lord, descend upon us.
R.) As we have hoped in Thee.

We impose it upon you to flee, unclean spirit, satanic power, invasion of the infernal enemy, with all your legions, reunions and diabolic sects, in the name and with the authority of Our Lord Jesus + Christ. Be eradicated from the Church of God, driven from souls created in the image of God and redeemed by the precious blood of the Divine Lamb.

From now on do not dare, perfidious serpent, to beguile the human race, persecute the Church of God, to agitate and sift like wheat, God's elect.

Almighty God commands it to you, to Whom, in your great pride, presume to be similar. God the Father + the Son and Holy Spirit commands it to you.

Christ, the eternal Word of God made flesh + commands it to you, Who for the salvation of our progeny lost by your jealousy, "He let be humiliated and made Himself obedient unto death".
The powerful Mother of God, the Virgin Mary + commands it to you, Who from the first instant of her Immaculate Conception, because of her humility, has crushed your proud head.
The blood of the Martyrs and the powerful intercession of all the Saints commands it to you.
Therefore cursed dragon and every diabolical legion, we conjure you by the living + God, by the true + God, by the holy + God: cease too lay snares in the path of God's creatures and toast them the poison of eternal damnation: cease to harm the Church and to put obstacles to its freedom.

Go Satan, author and master of deceits, enemy of man's salvation. Surrender the authority to Christ, surrender the authority to the Church which Christ acquired with His blood.

Humble yourself under the mighty hand of God, tremble and flee at the invocation which we make of the Holy and terrible name of that Jesus, which makes hell quake, to Whom the Celestial Virtues, Powers and Dominations are subject, Whom the Cherubim and Seraphim praise incessantly saying: "Holy, Holy, Holy is the Lord, the God of the universe".

V.) O Lord hear our prayers.
R.) And let our cry come unto Thee.

O God of Heaven, God of Earth, God of the Angels, God of the Archangels, God of the Patriarchs, God of the Prophets, God of the Apostles, God of the Martyrs, God of the Confessors, God of the Virgins, God Who has the power to bestow life after death and rest after fatigue, since there is no other God beside Thee and neither can it be, eternal Creator of all things visible and invisible, we humbly beseech Thee to free us from every tyranny, snare, deceit and infestation of the infernal enemy and preserve us always from all harm. Through Jesus Christ, Our Lord, Amen.

Through the intercession of St. Michael and the Celestial Choir of Seraphim, may the Lord render us worthy of the flame of perfect charity, Amen.
Through the intercession of St. Michael and the Celestial Choir of Cherubim, may the Lord grant us the grace to abandon the life of sin and may He assist us in the way of Christian perfection, Amen.
Through the intercession of St. Michael and the Sacred Choir of Thrones, may the Lord instill into our hearts a spirit of true and sincere humility. Amen.
Through the intercession of St. Michael and the Celestial Choir of Dominations, may the Lord grant us the grace to dominate our senses and correct our corrupted passions. Amen.
Through the intercession of St. Michael and the Celestial Choir of Authorities, may the Lord deign to protect our souls from the snares and temptations of the devil. Amen.

Through the intercession of St. Michael and the Celestial Choir of Archangels, may the Lord concede us the grace of perseverance in the faith and in good works, whereby be able to conquer the glory of Paradise. Amen.
Through the intercession of St.Michael and the Celestial Choir of all the Angels, may the Lord deign to grant us the grace to be protected by them in the present mortal life and afterwards may they lead us to the everlasting glories of Heaven. Amen.

Our Fathers are recited:
1st to St. Michael
2nd to St. Gabriel
3rd to St. Raphael
4th to our Guardian Angel

Most glorious Prince, St. Michael, head and chief of the Celestial army, depository of souls, conqueror of the rebellious spirits, servant of God's court, our admirable leader of superhuman excellence and virtue, deign to deliver us all who have recourse to you, from every evil and make us through your valid protection, that everyday of our lives we may serve our God faithfully.
V.) Pray for us our most blessed St. Michael, Prince of the Church of Jesus Christ.
R.) That we may become worthy of His promises.

Omnipotent, everlasting God, Who with prodigious goodness and mercy for the universal salvation of men, elected the most glorious Archangel St. Michael as Prince of Thy Church, make us worthy, we ask it of Thee, that through his beneficial protection, we may be freed from all our enemies, so that at the time of our death none should molest us but be granted us to be introduced by Him into the presence of Your Divine Majesty. We ask it through the merits of Jesus Christ, Our Lord. Amen.


O Divine Eternal Father, in union with your Divine Son and the Holy Spirit, and through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg you to destroy the power of your greatest enemy-the evil spirits. Cast them into the deepest recesses of hell and chain them there forever! Take possession of Your Kingdom which You have created and which is rightfully Yours.Heavenly Father, give us the reign of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.I repeat this prayer out of pure love for You with every beat of my heart and with every breath I take, Amen.


St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and You, O Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God cast into hell, Satan and all the other evil spirits, who prowl through the world seeking the ruin of souls, Amen.


Holy Cross be my light and never should Satan be my chief! Get behind me Satan!...are evil the drinks you pour me. Drink yourself your own poison. In the Name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit Amen.

The Medal of St. Benedict is a very effective way to ward off evil spirits and witchcraft. It can also be used for extraordinary favors by praying the novena or triduum, making each day the Way of the Cross, or reciting 5 Our Fathers and Hail Mary's in honor of the Five Wounds of Our Lord, and saying some prayers in honor of St. Benedict. In time of temptation, it is advisable to hold the Medal in one's hand, kiss it reverently and make use of the ejaculatory prayers on the Medal.


Daily Prayer

Glorious St. Benedict who taught us the way to perfection by the practice of mortification, humility, obedience, prayer, silence, and detachment from the world, I kneel at your feet and humbly beg you to take my present needs under your special protection (here make your request). Recommend it to the Blessed Virgin Mary, and lay it before the throne of Jesus. Cease not to intercede for me until my request is granted. Above all, obtain for me the grace to meet God face to face with you, Mary, and all the angels and saints to praise him through all eternity. O most powerful St. Benedict, do not let me lose my soul, but obtain for me the grace of winning my way to heaven and there worship and enjoy the most holy and adorable Trinity forever and ever. Amen.

First Day

You spent your early days in the university studying to be someone in the world, but all these you left behind, inspired by the Holy Spirit, to seek solitude in the mountains of Subiaco, Italy. You lived in a cave and survived by eating root crops and other food available in those mountains. You searched for God and God also found you. Inspire us, dear saint, to understand that God is within us and we can only encounter him in the silence of our hearts. Make us aware that the noise within us keeps us away from God—the noise of our ambitions, love for money, and honor. Wherever we are we can silence this noise. Help us, dear saint, to obtain silence within us. Amen.
Daily Prayer
(3) Our Father, (3) Hail Mary, (3) Glory Be
St. Benedict, pray for us.

Second day

You attracted followers to whom you gave a rule known for its moderation. You, St. Benedict, became a father to many monasteries and monks through this rule where you emphasized that the monastery is for people who want to change their bad habits into good. Make us aware of our bad habits and inspire us not to be comfortable with them. Our bad habits, dear saint, will keep us away from Jesus and engrained in us the power of sin. O dear St. Benedict, help us that we may work for the transformation of our bad habits. Amen.
Daily Prayer
(3) Our Father, (3) Hail Mary, (3) Glory Be
St. Benedict, pray for us.

Third Day

O dear St. Benedict, because of your work as a father in the monasteries, certain evil people wanted to poison you. You did not want to compromise the monastic ideals of silence and mortification; yet to their amazement, you drunk their poison and nothing happened to you. Jesus protected you. We live in a world today that is heavily poisoned by pollution and degradation of our forests and seas. Make us sensitive to the presence of these poisons and give us the wisdom not to be blinded by progress and easy money. Inspire us to contribute our part in making our world a better place to live in. Amen.
Daily Prayer
(3) Our Father, (3) Hail Mary, (3) Glory Be
St. Benedict, pray for us.

Fourth Day

O dear St. Benedict, you understood prayer as basking in God’s presence, experiencing his loving hands in our day to day struggles. While you worked in the fields, your heart sang hymns to your creator and you offered him a constant prayer of thanksgiving. May we imitate you in your unending prayer to the most High; wherever we go and whatever we do, may we remember Jesus and offer him our thanksgiving. Amen.

Daily Prayer
(3) Our Father, (3) Hail Mary, (3) Glory Be
St. Benedict, pray for us.

Fifth Day

O dear St. Benedict, despite your material poverty, you were always mindful of the poor and the needy. From the little produce of your monastery, you happily shared something for the poor who knocked daily at your door. Through you, the hungry had always their fill. May we learn from your charity and open our doors to those unprivileged. Inspire us to understand that our faith’s best expression is the help we extend to the needy. Amen.
Daily Prayer
(3) Our Father, (3) Hail Mary, (3) Glory Be
St. Benedict, pray for us.

Sixth Day

O dear St. Benedict, you showed us that if we want to be close to God, we must be able to discipline ourselves. You taught your disciples how to mortify their senses, control their passions, and thoughts so that Jesus can live in their hearts and minds. You emphasized that sanctification begins in our minds when we are able to distinguish the impure thoughts that lead us to sin. We ask your help, St. Benedict, that we may always be able to stop these deadly thoughts from influencing us, that we may not entertain them. Lead us to purification of mind and heart. Amen.
Daily Prayer
(3) Our Father, (3) Hail Mary, (3) Glory Be
St. Benedict, pray for us.

Seventh Day

O dear St. Benedict, you taught your followers to welcome visitors as if they were Christ in his person. Your rule of hospitality enabled you to treat with respect strangers and offer for them the warmth of your welcome. Teach us to be welcoming in our homes, to treat our guests with respect, and enable them to feel the warmth of Christ’s embrace. Teach us to develop a listening ear that our guests and visitors may easily feel that we are authentically interested in their welfare and well-being. Make our homes a place where the sorrowful may encounter relief of their sufferings. Amen.
Daily Prayer
(3) Our Father, (3) Hail Mary, (3) Glory Be
St. Benedict, pray for us.

Eighth Day

O dear St. Benedict, for you the highest kind of prayer is when you kneel in silence and uttering just one word, you come into contact with Jesus himself. You established monasteries that they may become the birthplace of contemplatives, people who in silence utter your name and experience your presence in their hearts. Teach us this kind of prayer, when your presence becomes everything. Enable us to be contemplatives, who put our utter trust in Jesus and who really believe that God’s Kingdom is already in our midst. Amen.
Daily Prayer
(3) Our Father, (3) Hail Mary, (3) Glory Be
St. Benedict, pray for us.

Ninth Day

O dear St. Benedict, you taught your followers to stand always in awe and wonder at creation. Help us that we may not lose this sense of wonder that in everything we do, we may always give thanks to God. Let not the tragedies and sorrows of this life make us pessimist and dry; allow us to discover that all problems are challenges and that the future is always bright and promising despite the sad things we see around us. Give us the energy to work hard so that God’s will may be implanted in our homes and society. Amen.
Daily Prayer
(3) Our Father, (3) Hail Mary, (3) Glory Be
St. Benedict, pray for us.

Thank you for this post of exorcism prayers. May God bless you.

I've been doing some research into this area and discovered some good material I'd like to share with others:

Those interested to lean more about evil and demonic possession, can watch a real video on an exorcism http://bit.ly/cwG3fP . Listen also to prominent theologian and exorcist Fr. Malachi Martin on The Nature Of Evil, Exorcism & Possession http://bit.ly/bZqbrb .Additionally you can also watch this documentary http://alturl.com/ctzmm showing a real exorcism in the Philippines.

Fr. Gabriele Amorth, Rome's chief exorcist's book is also worth a read. This milestone book is a great resource on demonology and diabolic possession. Read here http://alturl.com/hj58k about how one can get possessed and how to protect yourself and your family against witchcraft, spells, demonic influences etc.See more

These are valuable exorcism prayers to help drive out evil. A person must have faith in the exorcism prayer for it to work on possessed people. Thanks.
