Prayer Against Demonic Influence
Almighty God, Who delivered thy people from the bondage of the adversary, and through thy Son cast down Satan like lightning, deliver me also from every influence of unclean spirits. Command Satan to depart far from me by the power of thine Only Begotten Son. Rescue me from demonic imaginings and darkness. Fill me with the light of the Holy Spirit that I may be guarded against all snares of crafty demons. Grant that an Angel will always go before me and lead me to the path of righteousness all the days of my life, to the honor of thy glorious Name, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and ever, and unto ages of ages. Amen.
Prayer Toward The Unknown
O Lord, thou who steadied the hand of Peter as he began to sink on the stormy sea, if you are with me, no one is against me. Grant to me the shield of faith and the mighty armor of the Holy Spirit to protect me and guide me to do thy will. The future I put into thy hands, O Lord, and I follow thee to a life in Christ. Amen.
Prayer For Acceptance Of God's Will
Lord, I do not know what to ask of thee. Thou knowest better than me what my needs are. Thou lovest more than I know how to love. Help me to see clearly my real needs which I do not see. I open my heart to thee. Examine and reveal to me my faults and sins. I put all trust in thee. I have no other desire than to fulfill thy will. Teach me how to pray. Pray in me. Amen.
Bedtime Petitions to One's Guardian Angel
Divine Angel of God almighty, I hymn thee, the unsleeping Guardian of my soul, protector of my life, my guide given me from God.
My defender, I beseech with great boldness the granting of pardon for my many evil deeds, seeing that thou standest before the throne of the Almighty, and take part in the choirs in attendance on the King of creation.
Day by day, never cease guarding and accompanying me, restraining the demons rage and repelling their frightful assaults on me, my guardian, for I have thee as an avid helper.
Pure and bodiless, standing immaterially in the presence of the pure and immaterial One and having the freest approach and closeness with Him, earnestly beseech Him to grant me my soulâ?Ts Salvation.
Give me tears to flow endlessly from my eyelids, a profuse outpouring to wash me all over from head to toeâ?"so that, wearing a garment of repentance made whiter than snow, I may enter into the divine bridal chamber in acclaiming thou as my defender.
My guide and guardian, my protector and deliverer, overseer of my desperate soul, when the trumpetâ?Ts dread sound raises us on earth to judgment, stand beside me with gladness and grace, warding off from me fear with the hope of Salvation.
Intercede with the Lord on my behalf that He may strengthen me in His fear and make me a worthy servant of His goodness. Amen.
