Powerful Prayer to Heal the Soul and the Body From Every Demonic Act: Pray it Daily


The topic of healing—both physical and spiritual—is one that has been discussed for millennia within the Catholic Church. As a Catholic scholar, I can attest that the Church has long taught that prayer can be a potent tool for physical and spiritual healing. This doesn’t mean that prayer should replace medical treatment, but it does suggest that prayer can work hand in hand with it.

“Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up.” – James 5:14-15 (ESV)

The Power of Prayer in the Catholic Faith

A Universal Teaching

The Catholic Church holds the view that prayer is vital for both spiritual and physical well-being. This isn’t just a popular idea or a theological opinion; it’s a universal teaching.

“Prayer is the raising of one’s mind and heart to God or the requesting of good things from God” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 2559).

As an act of communication with God, prayer fosters a relationship between the Divine and human beings. It’s not just about asking for things but also about aligning our will with God’s will.

Against Demonic Influence

The Catholic Church acknowledges the existence of evil spirits and demonic influences. Prayer can serve as a shield and as a tool for combat against these evil forces.

“Spiritual combat is another element of life which needs to be taught anew; we must struggle against the demon” (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 409).

Prayers for Healing: Their Role and Importance

Prayers and the Sacraments

The sacraments, especially the Anointing of the Sick, can be the means of physical and spiritual healing. According to the Catechism, this sacrament is given to those who are seriously ill or suffering from old age, and it can provide physical healing if that is God’s will (Catechism of the Catholic Church, 1520).

The Lord’s Prayer

The Lord’s Prayer, also known as the Our Father, is a fundamental Catholic prayer that serves multiple purposes, including petition for deliverance from evil.

“And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.” – Matthew 6:13 (ESV)

Specific Prayers for Healing

While the Church provides specific prayers like the Our Father, it also encourages the faithful to use personal prayers, written prayers, or other formular prayers to ask for healing.

A Sample Healing Prayer

While there are many prayers for healing, here’s a sample one, inspired by the traditions and teachings of the Catholic Church:

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit,

Heavenly Father, I come before you seeking your grace and mercy.
I ask you to protect my soul and body from every form of evil and demonic influence.

In the name of Jesus Christ, your Son,
I rebuke all evil spirits that may be affecting me.
I claim the healing power of the wounds of Christ
To restore my body and soul to wholeness and purity.

Lord Jesus, you have promised, 
"Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest." (Matthew 11:28, ESV)

I surrender all my worries, illnesses, and afflictions to you,
Knowing that you are the Divine Physician, capable of all forms of healing.

Holy Spirit, guide me in my daily life, 
Strengthen my will and resolve,
So that I may be guided away from sin and towards eternal life.

Mary, Mother of God, intercede for me,
St. Raphael the Archangel, patron of healing, assist in this cause,
All saints and angels, pray for me.

In the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit,


Prayer is a significant part of the Catholic faith, and it plays a crucial role in physical and spiritual healing. Whether you are suffering from an illness or under the influence of evil forces, the power of prayer should not be underestimated. While medical treatments are essential, prayers work in tandem to provide complete healing, which is both of the body and of the soul. Always remember that prayer is a universal teaching of the Church and not merely a theological opinion. Therefore, don’t hesitate to make prayer a part of your daily life to experience its full benefits.

“And this is the confidence that we have toward him, that if we ask anything according to his will he hears us.” – 1 John 5:14 (ESV)
