Prayer To The Devil

The Prayer to the Devil is a prayer that was created by an individual who went by the name of Shadowite. The prayer is designed to appease the last of the three princes of hell and is said to grant the wishes of its follower. Shadowite believed that if one were to use this prayer every day for seventy-seven days, their wishes would come true.

This dubious text dwells in the same category as the “Prayer to Saint Giorgio” and the “Marriage Prayer.” These prayers, composed of meaninglessly disjointed words, express belief in magic, or black magic. They are addressed to pagan divinities or to Satan himself, pray for his help and request destruction of one’s enemies.

The devil has a reputation for being evil and mean. He is not known for being kind, nice or gentle. As a matter of fact, most people are opposed to even offering him a prayer, for fear of what he might do with the simple request. Many pray to the devil in hopes that he will grant their requests; however, few offer him a prayer of thanksgiving or praise afterwards. It’s time to change the way we feel about this misunderstood creature.

Dear Devil, I have been praying for your help. But lately it has been getting worse instead of better. Maybe you have turned your back on me and don’t care about my problems anymore. In fact, I know you have, because all this time the only thing that changed was that I kept praying and nothing good came out of it. I will no longer be a slave to your cause and pray to you from tonight onwards, because all my prayers until now were to no avail.

Prayer To The Devil

Heavenly Father, I ask You in the name, and through the Blood of Your Divine Son, to rebuke Satan for taking captive that which belongs to You.
I ask Jesus to place His Crown of thorns around (Name the person) so that those with wrong influences will lose interest and depart.
Mary Mother of Jesus, place your mantle of love around, (your son and/or your daughter.)
Amen

Prayer To The Devil

O Holy Trinity, one God, defend me this day from the deceits and temptations of the devil, keep me from all sin, and preserve me from sudden and unprovided death. Raise up, O God, my body from sleep and drowsiness, and my soul from sin, that I may praise and glorify thy holy name, to whom belongs all benediction, and honor, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, now and for ever. Amen.

It may be alarming for many to realize that failing to strive to forgive, opens us up to the demonic. I have heard this from exorcists during past interviews. A wound that festers is an opportunity for the devil to influence a person to anger and revenge. That is exactly the reaction the devil wants. But instead, if we invite Christ into those wounds, he offers supernatural healing. It is not a one-and-done scenario, but something that requires an ongoing relationship with Christ and asking for his help to forgive and heal.

Pride, revenge, gossip and unforgiveness contained in a prayer is no prayer at all. Below are five ways we hide behind the cover of prayer while in reality we do what the devil wants: sin.

1. Using prayer as a concealed weapon. As in the example above, it is used as a way to strike with the intent to harm under the guise of prayer.

2. Prayer as a cover for gossip. Venting or blabbing information, disguised by the excuse that you’re asking for prayers for the person. This is just plain gossip.

3. Bragging to God about how great you are. It was the way the Pharisee in Luke 18:9-14 prayed when he compared himself against the tax collector.

Jesus told this parable: ‘Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. The Pharisee stood by himself and prayed: ‘God, I thank you that I am not like other people—robbers, evildoers, adulterers—or even like this tax collector. I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.’

But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said, ‘God, have mercy on me, a sinner.’

 I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For all those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.

4. Expecting God to give you a front row seat to someone’s punishment. This is a meme  currently floating around: “No need for revenge. Just sit back and wait. Those who hurt you will eventually screw up themselves and if you’re lucky, God will let you watch.”

Looking forward to the pain of others is a desire for revenge. And why in heaven’s name would anyone expect God to arrange for them to watch and enjoy someone’s personal pain?

5. Praying for God’s punishment on someone. “Dear Lord, I pray for her to be strong enough to handle the punishment you will send her.” Someone once suggested we pray together about a shared difficulty and that is what was expressed. Such an intention has the attitude of conferencing in with God, that the punishment is understood between us, and we are so kind as to wish them well while they suffer.

We all know the feeling of resentment and the temptation to lash out. It is only through the teachings of Jesus that we can pull back from it. Sometimes it is very hard to pray for someone who hurt us. All the more pleasing it must be to God, for it is not easy and done out of obedience and faith.

Dear Lord, help us to pray with a humble heart; to be edified and to love others through prayer. And when it’s hard for us to pray, please send your angels to lift us up and your Blessed Mother to help form our hearts,t so that our prayers will be productive and pleasing to you.
