Said on Thursdays during deliverance prayers from 9:00pm

Heavenly Father, I love you, I praise you, and I worship you. I thank you for sending your Son Jesus who won victory over sin and death for my salvation. I thank you for sending your Holy Spirit who empowers me, guides me, and leads me into fullness of life. I thank you for Mary, my heavenly Mother, who intercedes with the holy angels and saints for me. Lord Jesus Christ, I place myself at the foot of your cross and ask you to cover me with your precious blood which pours forth from your Most Sacred Heart and your most holy wounds. Cleanse me, my Jesus, in the living water that flows from your heart: . I ask you to surround me, Lord Jesus, with your holy light.

Heavenly Father, let the healing waters of my baptism now flow back through the maternal and paternal generations to purify my family line of Satan and sin. I come before you, Father, and ask forgiveness for myself, my relatives, and my ancestors, for any calling upon powers hat set themselves up in opposition to you or that do not offer true honor to Jesus Christ. In Jesus’ holy Name, I now reclaim any territory that was handed over to Satan and place it under the lordship of Jesus Christ. By the power of your Holy Spirit, reveal to me, Father, any people I need to forgive and any areas of unconfessed sin. Reveal aspects of my life that are not pleasing to you, Father, ways that have given or could give Satan a foothold in my life. Father, I give to you any unforgiveness. I give to you my sins; and, I give to you all ways that Satan has a hold of my life. Thank you, Father, for these revelations. Thank you, for your forgiveness and your love.

Lord Jesus, in your holy Name, I bind all evil spirits of the air, water, ground, underground, and netherworld. I further bind, in Jesus’ Name, any and all emissaries of the satanic headquarters and claim the precious blood of Jesus on the air, atmosphere, water, ground, and their fruits around us, the underground, and the netherworld below.

Heavenly Father, allow your Son Jesus to come now with the Holy Spirit, the Blessed Virgin Mary, the holy angels, and the saints to protect me from all harm and to keep all evil spirits from taking revenge on me in any way.

(Repeat the following sentence 3 times: honor of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit.)
