Carmelite Spiritual Warfare Prayer

Come Holy Spirit with Thy Seven-fold gifts and anoint us with Thy Divine light, wisdom, and power. Come Lord Jesus Christ and anoint us with Thy Precious Blood, freeing us from every snare and stronghold of the principalities and powers of darkness. O Mother of God, glorious and Immaculate ever Virgin Mary, come and crush the head of the ancient serpent. O great father, St. Joseph, terror of demons, come and annihilate the enemies of our souls. St. Michael, great prince and commander of the heavenly army, strike down the insidious foes who seek to destroy us. Come glorious band of the Apostles, come great patriarchs and prophets; come white-robed army of Martyrs, come pure and noble throng of Virgins. Come to our aid Holy Mother St. Teresa, our Holy Father St. John of the Cross, St. Elijah, St. Elisha, St. John the Baptist, St. Therese, St. Elizabeth of the Trinity, all you saints of Carmel, our Guardian Angels, Archangels, and all you holy Angels and Saints, come repulse the attacks and deceits of our wicked enemies; render them impotent and helpless. Let God arise; let His enemies be scattered and let all those who hate Him flee before Him. As smoke is driven away, so are they driven away; as wax melts before the fire, so the wicked perish at the presence of God.

(From the Apostoli Viae Prayer Book)

  1. What a powerful prayer and I will pray often. I was surrounded by a powerful force of protection like an armor. More than anything my Faith was reassured that many pray for me.
