Deacon Led Deliverance Session

(General Format)


1. Entire session should last on average 20-40 minutes.

2. Wear clerics (or alb) with purple stole.

3. Deacons are ordained clerics and can pray In Persona Ecclesiae (in the person of the Church).  They do not pray In Persona Christi, as do priests.  They lead the people in prayer.

4. Deacons should not use imprecatory prayers, ie., directly addressing demons and commanding them to leave.  They should use deprecatory prayers and invoke God (Jesus, BVM, etc) and ask Him to cast them out.  They can make any prayer a deprecatory prayer by simply adjusting the prayer so it is addressed to God.

5. Deacons should not pray the Rite of Exorcism or the Leo XIII prayers.   They should not address demons directly, such as asking them their names.  If the individual manifests to the extent that a demonic presence and voice comes forward, then that person should be referred to an exorcist.  Ask the person to stop manifesting and come back to consciousness.  Bring the session to a close with a gentle prayer such as the Rosary or Our Father.

6. Deacons should not underestimate their ministry and the power of the Church praying.  The Church has complete authority over demons, given directly by Jesus.  Casting out demons is one of the major tasks given to the Church by Jesus himself, in continuation of His ministry.

I. Welcome/Greeting

II. Perimeter Prayer (Deacon)

Lord Jesus Christ, in Your love and mercy establish a perimeter of protection around N. and myself and all our loved ones, those who pray for us and their loved ones.  May the Holy Angels guard him/her/us and all our possessions, establishing a perimeter of protection around N., rendering him/her/us immune from any kind of demonic influence. I ask that no demonic bondage, door, demonic entity, portal, astral projection or disembodied spirit may enter the space of 100 yards in all directions of him/her/us. I ask that any demons within this vicinity or any that should try to enter here be rendered deaf, dumb, and blind; that You would strip them of all weapons, armor, power, illusions, and authority; that You would bind, rebuke and disable them from communicating or interacting with each other in any way. Remove them, sending them directly to the foot of Thy Cross. Jesus, Son of the Most High, I ask this in Your Glorious and Most Holy Name. Amen.

(Adapted from Fr Chadd Ripperger, Deliverance Prayers: For Use By The Laity, p. 39)

III. Gospel Reading (Deacon)

Reading from: John 1:1-14

In the beginning was the Word,

and the Word was with God,

and the Word was God.

He was in the beginning with God.

All things came to be through him,

and without him nothing came to be.

What came to be through him was life

and this life was the light of the human race,

the light shines in the darkness,

and the darkness has not overcome it.

A man named John was sent from God.

He came for testimony, to testify to the light,

so that all might believe through him.

He was not the light, but came to testify to the light.

The true light, which enlightens everyone, was coming into the world.

He was in the world, and the world came to be through him,

but the world did not know him.

He came to what was his own,

but his own people did not accept him.

But to those who did accept him he gave power to become children of God,

to those who believe in his name,

who were born not by natural generation nor by human choice

nor by a man's decision but of God.

And the Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us,

and we saw his glory, the glory as of the Father's only Son,

full of grace and truth.

IV. Lifting Curses and Rejecting Evil Spirits (Prayed by the Afflicted Person and Witnessed by the Deacon)

At the discretion of the deacon, the afflicted person may explicitly reject any types or names of demons or related curses or sinful behaviors or give voice to any necessary forgiveness. In which case, the individual will want to use the prayers to lift curses, against generational curses, against Freemasonry curses or whatever is applicable.

See section at the end of this document entitled “Potential Deliverance Prayers for the Afflicted Person to Recite” for some of these prayers, e.g. Prayer for Breaking Curses of the Occult, Prayer Against Sorcery, Prayer to Remove Generational Spirits, Deliverance Prayers for People or Places, Prayer to Break the Freemasonic Curse, Breaking Bonds from Previous Illicit Sexual Partners, An Act of Forgiveness.  There are other similar kinds of prayers in the APP: “Catholic Exorcism.”

The afflicted person will recite these prayers.  After each prayer, the deacon will say a witness prayer, such as:

In the name of Jesus Christ, I witness your rejection of these demons/evil spirits, and I ask God to cast them out.  May the Blood of Jesus wash over you and cleanse you of these and all evil spirits and all evil bonds and attachments.

The afflicted persons may also be asked to confess the Faith and to profess that they commit themselves to God and to Jesus, such as reciting the Nicene Creed:

I believe in one God, the Father, the Almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all that is seen and unseen. I believe in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the only Son of God, eternally begotten of the Father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten not made, one in Being with the Father. Through him all things were made. For us men and for our salvation he came down from heaven: by the power of the Holy Spirit he was born of the Virgin Mary, and became man. For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate; he suffered, died, and was buried. On the third day he rose again in fulfillment of the Scriptures; he ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. He will come again in glory to judge the living and the dead, and his kingdom will have no end. I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life, who proceeds from the Father and the Son. With the Father and the Son he is worshiped and glorified. He has spoken through the Prophets. I believe in one holy catholic and apostolic Church. I acknowledge one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins. I look for the resurrection of the dead and the life of the world to come. Amen.

The afflicted person may want to make a short consecration to the Blessed Virgin Mary, such as:

My Queen and my Mother, I give myself entirely to you; and to show my devotion to you, I consecrate to you this day and every day my eyes, my ears, my mouth, my heart, my whole being without reserve. Wherefore, good Mother, as I am your own, keep me, guard me, as your precious possession. Amen.

Prayer for Breaking Curses of the Occult (Deacon)

We ask God Almighty, through the Most Precious Blood of Jesus, to break any and all evil curses, pacts, spells, seals, hexes, vexes, triggers, trances, vows, demonic blessings, or any other demonic bondages sent against N. or us, or any of our loved ones or any of our possessions; May God bind them all and break them in the Name of the Father and of the Son + and of the Holy Spirit.  (3x)

Finally, at the end of all these prayers of renunciation and faith, the Deacon ends it by praying:

Heavenly Father, N. renounces the Evil One and his demons and all their sinful works and empty promises.  He/She cries out to You seeking Your Mercy, Healing, and Protection.  I ask our Blessed Mother and all the Saints of Heaven to intercede with me as I beseech You: hear the humble prayers of N. and, in accordance with your most holy will, grant N. the Healing and Peace only You can bring.  I ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

V. Deliverance Prayers (Deacon)

Deliverance Prayer

Let us pray.

God of Heaven and earth, God of the Angels and Archangels, God of the Patriarchs and Prophets, God of the Apostles and martyrs, God of confessors and virgins, God Who have power to bestow life after death and rest after toil; for there is no other God than You, nor can there be another true God beside  You, the Creator of all things visible and invisible, Whose Kingdom is without end; we humbly entreat Your glorious Majesty to deliver us [and ….

All. We beg You to hear us.
Deacon. That You humble the enemies of holy Church. 
All. We beg You to hear us.

Prayer Invoking the Aid of Saint Michael the Archangel

St. Michael the Archangel, illustrious leader of the heavenly army, defend us in the battle against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the world of darkness and the spirit of wickedness in high places. Come to the rescue of mankind, whom God has made in His own image and likeness, and purchased from Satan’s tyranny at so great a price. Holy Church venerates you as her patron and guardian. The Lord has entrusted to you the task of leading souls of the redeemed to heavenly blessedness. Entreat the Lord of peace to cast Satan down under our feet, so as to keep him from further holding mankind captive and doing harm to the Church. Carry our prayers up to God’s throne, that the mercy of the Lord may quickly come and lay hold of the beast, the serpent of old, Satan and his demons, casting him in chains into the abyss, so that he can no longer seduce the nations.

Deliverance Prayer

Lord, have Mercy. God, Our Lord, King of Ages, All powerful and Almighty, You Who made everything and who transformed 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 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, malefice, or evil eye and all evil actions aimed against Your servant... [persons]… and in this place …..[places]... where there is envy and malice, give us an abundance of goodness, endurance, victory and charity. O Lord, You who love us, 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 God 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 Thou art with me, my God, my strength, my powerful Lord, Lord of Peace, Father of all Ages.

Deliverance Prayer

To be said while showing the Cross and making the Sign of the Cross with it:

+ Let God arise and let his enemies be scattered; and let those who hate Him Flee before His Presence. As smoke vanishes, so let them vanish; and as wax melts before the fire, so let the demons perish before the presence of those who love God and who sign themselves with the Sign of the Cross and say in gladness: Hail, most precious and life-giving Cross of the Lord, for You drive away the demons by the power of our Lord Jesus Christ who was crucified on You and who went down to Hell and trampled on the power of the devil, and gave us You, His venerable Cross, for driving away all enemies. O most precious and life-giving Cross of the Lord, help us, with all the Saints and Angels throughout the ages.

R. Amen.

VI. Closing Prayers (Deacon)

Prayer Against Retaliation

Lord Jesus Christ, in your love and mercy, pour Your Precious Blood over us so that no demon or disembodied spirit may retaliate against us. Mary, surround us with your mantle, blocking any retaliating spirits from having any authority over us. St. Michael, surround us with your shield, so that no evil spirit may take revenge on us. Queen of Heaven and St. Michael, send down the legions of angels under your command to fight off any spirits that would seek to harm us. All you saints of heaven, impede any retaliating spirit from influencing us. Lord, You are the Just Judge, the avenger of the wicked, the Advocate of the Just, we beg in Your mercy, that all we ask of Mary, the angels and the saints of heaven be also granted to all our loved ones, all of our possessions, those who pray for us and their loved ones, that for Your Glory’s sake, we may enjoy Your perfect protection.  Amen.

(adapted from Chadd, Laity, p. 37)

Cleansing Prayer

Lord Jesus, thank you for sharing with us Your wonderful ministry of healing and deliverance. Thank you for the healing we have seen and experienced today. But we realize that the sickness and evil we encountered are more than our humanities can bear. So, cleanse us of any sadness, negativity, or despair that we may have picked up during the course of this ministry.

If our ministry has tempted us to anger, impatience, or lust, cleanse us of those temptations and replace them with love, joy and peace. If any evil spirits have attached themselves to us or oppress us in any way, spirits of earth, air, fire, or water, of the netherworld or of nature, and all spirits not of the Holy Spirit, we pray that these evil spirits would depart now and go straight to Jesus Christ, for Him to deal with as He wills.

Come, Holy Spirit, renew us, fill us anew with Your power, love and joy. Strengthen us where we have felt weak and clothe us with Your light. Fill us with life. And Lord Jesus, please send your holy angels to minister to us and our families and to guard and protect us from all sickness, harm, and accidents and guard us on a safe trip home, and grant us a peaceful night’s rest. We praise You now and forever.

Heavenly Father, in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, by the power of the Holy Spirit, we pray that the cleansing power of the precious blood of Your Son come upon us right now.  Purify us and wash us clean with the blood of Jesus from the top of our heads down to the very soles of our feet. Let this blood penetrate the very marrow of our bones to cleanse us from any entanglement from whatever evil spirits we have come in contact with during the course of our intercession. Anoint us with the gifts of the Holy Spirit and refresh our body, soul, and spirit, and may the sign of Your holy cross drive away all evil spirits from us.  In the Name of the Father + and the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.   (Sprinkle all present with Holy Water.)

VII. Wrap-up/Final Blessing



Prayer for Breaking Curses of the Occult

I bind in the Most Precious Blood of Jesus any and all evil curses, pacts, spells, seals, hexes, vexes, triggers, trances, vows, demonic blessings, voodoo, or any other demonic bondages sent against me, or any of our loved ones or any of our possessions; I bind them all and break them in the Name of the Father and of the Son + and of the Holy Spirit. (Thrice)

Prayer Against Sorcery

(From the Greek-Orthodox Ritual) Kyrie eleison. God, our Lord, king of ages, all-powerful and almighty, You who made everything and who transforms everything simply by Your will; You who in Babylon changed into dew the seven-times-hotter furnace and protected and saved three holy children; You are the doctor and 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, spell, or evil eye and all evil actions aimed against Your servants. Where there is envy and malice, give us an abundance of goodness, endurance, victory, and chastity. O Lord, You who love man, we beg You to reach out Your powerful hands and Your mighty arms and send the angels of peace over us, to protect us, body and soul. May he keep at bay and vanquish every evil power, every evil 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 shall 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, have compassion on Your image, and save Your servants from every threat coming from the spell, and protect us by raising us 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 to Remove Generational Spirits

Lord Jesus Christ, Incarnate Son of God the Father, Thou who has chosen to enter into human history by being carried in the womb of Thy Blessed Mother Mary, grant I beseech You, that any demons that may have been introduced into my generational line by any one of my ancestors may be blocked from passing to the subsequent generations. I ask You that if the evil spirit entered the generational line by the sin of one or more of my ancestors, that You would pardon them temporal punishment due to their sin and free us from the demon’s involvement in our lives. Blessed Virgin, we ask you to offer the Precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of your Son to God the Father in reparation for the sins of those ancestors who may have introduced any evil spirits into my generational line, as well as any subsequent sins that may have resulted from the evil spirits affecting those of the generational line. If any evil spirit has been introduced into my generational line as a result of a curse or malefice done by someone outside my family, I ask You to give me the grace to forgive them wholeheartedly and I ask You, Jesus to break the curse or malefice, if it is still in place. God the Father, I forgive them for any of the effects of their sin that they may have committed against my family line and for any damage it may have caused. Jesus, I ask You to forgive me of any sins that may be the result of any generational spirits in my family and I ask You to block any power the evil spirits may have gained in my generational line as a result of my own sin. Heal any damage in the lives of the members of my family as a result of the generational spirit. I bind and completely and utterly reject, with the full force of my will any sin or spiritual defect of mine as well as any temptation, allurements or power that any generational spirit may have over me as a result of my sin or the sin of any other person. I do this in the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary and in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

Prayer to Break the Freemasonic Curse (Short Form)

God the Father, Creator of heaven and earth, I come to You in the name of Jesus Christ Your Son. I come as a sinner seeking forgiveness and cleansing from all sins committed against You, and others made in Your image. I honor my earthly father and mother and all of my ancestors of flesh and blood, and of the spirit by adoption and godparents, but I utterly turn away from and renounce all their sins. I forgive all my ancestors for the effects of their sins on me and my children. I confess and renounce all of my own sins. I renounce and rebuke Satan and every spiritual power of his affecting me and my family. I renounce and forsake all involvement in Freemasonry or any other lodge or craft by my ancestors and myself. In the name of Jesus Christ and by the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, I renounce and cut off Witchcraft, the principal spirit behind Freemasonry, and I renounce and cut off Baphomet, the Spirit of Antichrist and the spirits of Death, and Deception. I renounce the insecurity, the love of position and power, the love of money, avarice or greed, and the pride which would have led my ancestors into Masonry. I renounce all the fears which held them in Masonry, especially the fears of death, fears of men, and fears of trusting, in the name of Jesus Christ and by the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

I renounce every position held in the lodge by any of my ancestors or myself, including "Master," "Worshipful Master," or any other. I renounce the calling of any man "Master," for Jesus Christ is my only Lord and master, and He forbids anyone else having that title. I renounce the entrapping of others into Masonry, and observing the helplessness of others during the rituals. I renounce the effects of Masonry passed on to me through any female ancestor who may or may not have felt distrusted and rejected by her husband as he entered and attended any lodge and refused to tell her of his secret activities. I also renounce all obligations, oaths and curses enacted by every female member of my family through any direct membership of all Women's Orders of Freemasonry, the Order of the Eastern Star, or any other Masonic or occultic organization.

I renounce every evil spirit associated with Masonry and Witchcraft and all other sins, and I command in the name of Jesus Christ and by the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary for Satan and every evil spirit to be bound and to leave me now, touching or harming no-one, and go to the place appointed for you by the Lord Jesus, never to return to me or my family. I call on the name of the Lord Jesus to be delivered of these spirits, in accordance with Our Lord’s many promises. I ask to be delivered of every spirit of sickness, infirmity, curse, affliction, addiction, disease or allergy associated with these sins I have confessed and renounced. I surrender to God the Holy Spirit and to no other spirit all the places in my life where these sins have been.

Holy Spirit, I ask that You show me anything else which I need to do or to pray so that I and my family may be totally free from the consequences of the sins of Masonry, Witchcraft, Mormonism and all related Paganism and Occultism.

God the Father, I ask humbly for the blood of Jesus Christ, Thy Son and my Savior, to cleanse me from all these sins I have confessed and renounced, to cleanse my spirit, my soul, my mind, my emotions and every part of my body which has been affected by these sins. I also ask that by the grace of Jesus Christ and by the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary every cell in my body to come into divine order now, and to be healed and made whole as they were designed to, by my loving Creator, including restoring all chemical imbalances and neurological functions, controlling all cancerous cells, and reversing all degenerative diseases. I take to myself the whole armor of God in accordance with Ephesians Chapter Six, and rejoice in its protection as Jesus surrounds me and fills me with His Holy Spirit. I enthrone You, Lord Jesus, in my heart, for You are my Lord and my Savior, the source of eternal life. Thank you, God the Father, for Your mercy, Your forgiveness and Your love, in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.

Breaking Bonds From Previous Illicit Sexual Partners

In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, I break any ties between myself and all former sexual partners, (including N., N., N., etc...).  I break all ties including any mental, emotional, spiritual and physical bonds with all former sexual partners, and anyone with whom they have had relations as well. I take back what I gave and I give back what I took.  I ask God now to wash me in the blood of the Lamb and cleanse me from any stain of sin or attachment of any kind to these individuals.  I also ask our Lord to free those former partners from any evil caused by these relationships. May St. Michael and the Holy Angels sever any bonds of sin and protect this person from all evil and harm.  I pray that the Blessed Mother would spread her mantle of protection over us all now and always.

An Act of Forgiveness

(Note:  Forgiveness does not mean that what the person did to harm someone was okay.  It also does not mean the one hurt should have “warm feelings” about the other person.  Rather, it is an act of the will to let go of the hurt and to will the good of the other.  This is important.  Demons feed off unforgiveness. Moreover, unforgiveness can dysfunctionally bond the person to the abuser and the one harmed can remain a perpetual victim, under the control of the abuser.  Forgiveness allows the person to let go of the person who caused the harm, to be open to God’s healing, and to be set free.)

Afflicted Person:  In the name of Jesus Christ, I willingly forgive anyone who has hurt or harmed me (including N., N., N., etc...).  I forgive him/her/them from the bottom of my heart and I ask God to bless him/her/them.

Deacon: I witness your forgiveness. I ask God to heal any unforgiveness and any inner wounds and trauma. May God heal you and all those who have hurt you. May you be released from any dyfunctional attachments, be healed in your heart, and set free in the name of Jesus. In the name of Jesus may you be healed. In the name of Jesus, be at peace.

O Eternal God, Who has redeemed the race of men from the captivity of the devil, deliver Your servant (handmaid) N. from all the working of unclean spirits.

+ O Lord, rebuke the devil! You who came down from the Father’s bosom and, through the holy inexpressible, immaculate and adorable Incarnation from the Virgin, appeared ineffably in the world to save it and cast the devil down from heaven in Your authoritative power and showed the devil to be an outcast to every man.

+ O Lord, rebuke Satan! You who said to the sea, be silent, be still and instantly it was calmed at Your command. O Lord, rebuke the devil!

You who by Your word restored to life the daughter of the ruler of the synagogue and snatched the son of the widow out from the mouth of death and gave him whole and sound to his own mother. + O Lord, rebuke the Devil! You, Lord, who raised Lazarus the four-days dead from the dead, undecayed, as if not having died, and unblemished to the astonishment of many.

+ O Lord, rebuke the devil! You, who spoke from your Cross and the curtain of the temple was torn in two, and the rocks were split and the tombs were opened and those who were dead from the ages were raised up.  + O Lord, rebuke the Devil! You who by death put death to death and by rising granted life to all men. + O Lord, rebuke Satan! It is You who descended into Hades and opened its tombs and set free those held prisoner in it, calling them to Yourself; before You the gatekeepers of Hades shuddered when they saw You and, hiding themselves, vanished in the anguish of Hades. + O Lord, rebuke the devil! It is You, Christ our God Who arose from the dead and granted Your Resurrection to all men. + O Lord, rebuke Satan! You who in glory ascended into heaven to Your Father, sitting on the right of majesty upon the throne of glory. + O Lord, rebuke the Devil! You who shall come again with glory upon the clouds of heaven with Your holy angels to judge the living and the dead. + O Lord, rebuke the Devil!

Make him depart + swiftly from this creature of Yours, O Creator Christ our God! And drive him from this servant (handmaid) of God N., from his (her) mind, from his (her) soul, from his (her) heart, from his (her) reins, from his (her) senses, from all his (her) members, that he (she) might become whole and sound and free, knowing You, O God, his (her) own Master and Creator of all things, You who gather together those who have gone astray and who gives them the seal of salvation through the rebirth and restoration of divine Baptism, so that he (she) may be counted worthy of Your immaculate, heavenly and awesome Mysteries and be united to Your true fold, dwelling in a place of pasture and nourished on the waters of repose, guided pastorally and safely by the staff of the + Cross unto the forgiveness of sins and life everlasting.

For to + You belong all glory, honor, adoration and majesty together with Your beginningless + Father and all-holy, good and life-giving + Spirit, now and ever, and unto ages of ages.
