Easy guide to private deliverance

I am sharing my quick guide on spiritual warfare.  These are not meant to substitute the roman rite of exorcism but is meant to supplement our faith.  

Deliverance is a special type of prayer that anyone can use when they felt they are being harrassed by evil spirits.

Notice: this is not a magic devise and must be prayed with faith

Prayer for Deliverance of persons or places1
Re-printed with permission from the Fr. Jocis Syqia
Distributed by: Mr. Aljoriz Dublin
  1. Only use this when you feel you are being harassed by spirits, being sick due to their attacks.
  2. Pray with faith and NOT superstition: i.e. “Jesus & Mama Mary is watching over me. I am theirs”
  3. Before prayer, feel the presence and love of God.
  4. All prayers must be recited save for those indicated for your personal prayers.
  5. Ask the Holy Spirit to be with you.
  6. If possible wear scapulars and the medal of St. Benedict

Step1: (make a sign of the cross)
Prayer for protection
“Jesus Crucified, cover me, my family, my relatives, my friends and all our possession with your precious blood” (3x)

Step2: Prayer for armor
I put on God's armor to resist the devil's tactics. I stand my ground with truth buckled around my waist and integrity for a breastplate. I carry the shield of faith to put out the arrows of the evil one. I accept salvation from God to be my helmet and receive the word of God from the spirit to use as a sword.”

Step3: Prayer for Deliverance
(Done with a commanding voice, if possible sprinkle the holy water while praying)
In the name of Jesus of Nazareth, through his tremendous as God and through his most powerful and salvific name. I repudiate, rebuke, bind, cast out all spirits not of the holy spirit.
I command you, in the name of Jesus to depart right now from (state the name of the person or place) and go immediately and directly to the foot of the cross and to never return.

(prayer to the holy spirit and ask for infilling)
O most holy spirit, enter into the empty spaces left by these spirits and fill (state name of the person or place) with your presence, love and protection. Pls. do not allow these spirits to return.

Step4: Prayer to the Angels
(your own personal prayer to the angles to stand guard and remain on these places or persons)

Step5: Prayer for cleansing.
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 and wash us clean with the blood of Jesus from the top of our head to the very soles of our feet. Let this blood penetrate the very marrow of our bones to cleanse us from any entanglement from what ever spirit we have come in contact with during the course of our intercession. Anoint us with the gifts of the holy spirit and may the sign of the holy cross drive away all evil spirits away from us.

(sign of the cross) In the name of the Father, of the son and of the Holy spirit. AMEN

Step 6: Prayer for Thanksgiving (make a personal prayer to God for this purpose)

Prayer for the middle aged

This is among the  beautiful prayers I have come across and it is amusing to use at times.

It is my hope that you will also find this prayer beautiful and useful.
Lord, you know I am growing older.
Keep me from becoming talkative and possessed w/ the idea
that I must express myself on every subject.

Release me from the craving to straighten out everyone's affairs.
Keep me from the recital of endless details.
Give me wings to get to the point.
Seal my lips when I am inclined to tell of my aches and pains.
They are increasing with the years,
and my love to speak of them grows sweeter as time goes by.

Teach me the glorious lesson tha toccasionaly I may be wrong.
Make me thoughtful and not nosy,
helpful and not bossy.

With my vast store of wisdom & experience,
it is a pity not to use them all.
But you know, Lord, that I want a few friends in the end.


A world w/o Wikipedia.

Jan. 18, 2012 Philippines saw the blacking of wikipedia in protest to the SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) pending at the U.S. Congress. 

As a result students were not able to plagiarize er research for ther assignments.

My personal opinion is a world without wikipedia will be a world of challenge as students will be force to go to their school library and research.  Online encyclopedias like wikipedia only encourage academic complacency. 

I hope to see a renaissance period in education where students would flock to their library opening moth ridden books, borrowing them and talking about it with their friends.

Until that happens, I will be using wikipedia for the time being.
