Spiritual Protection from Dark Forces & Evil Spirits

Rating: Educational

When I was new to the idea of confronting spiritual darkness, I met a couple who seemed to have a little more experience in this area. The wife could discern whether an object had a curse on it by holding it in her hand. The husband could discern spiritual activity (angels & demons) – he said he saw them like comic book characters.

When I met them (nearly 20 years ago), they reported having some experience in helping people get free of oppression from dark forces. I had very little experience so I listened to what they had to say. They seemed balanced – not flaky like other Christians I had known. They taught me some things that I still use to this day.

One of the principles they learned (from experience) was spiritual protection. They reported having really bad experiences of “backlash” after a ministry appointment unless they specifically prayed for spiritual protection. I have incorporated the prayer they taught me with other prayers the Holy Spirit has impressed on me from time to time.

Whenever you directly confront darkness or dark forces through prayer, intercession or in a ministry setting (i.e. praying for someone who is oppressed by evil), afterwards it is a good idea to pray something like this:

“I bind all Retaliation, Revenge, Retribution and Jealousy from off of me and everything associated with me. I cancel all witchcraft and any soulish prayers prayed concerning me or my family. I close every open door to the enemy’s realm and I seal them with the blood of Jesus. Thank you, Lord, for your protection. In Jesus name, Amen.”

Obviously, there is no set formula – you can adapt or revise this prayer to suit your own needs. I have added some parts to it over the years based on my own experience. My friends used to call this “binding the three Rs”. Later they learned that they should add Jealousy. The 3 Rs is still a shortened way to refer to this. My husband and I have also found it helpful to pray this on a regular basis, regardless of what kind of ministry we have been doing lately.

Sometimes when we leave a specific location and are on the way home, I will feel impressed to “cancel any trailing or lingering spirits”. Sometimes I will get a specific impression to “cut off all communication devices of the enemy” and I may also cancel “any watchers or listeners”. A friend of mine has seen watchers and listeners – they are creepy. Just like in a real war in the natural, you might have these elements, right? So it makes sense to me that you might need to pray specifically against these in the spiritual war we are in.

Another couple I know have a habit of praying a “golden dome of protection”. This is particularly helpful if you are in a setting where you feel uncomfortable in your spirit, but you do not want to leave. I have prayed this at a restaurant, for instance. I ask God to fill this dome with His presence around our table and remove anything that does not come from Him. Immediately I feel at peace and I feel comfortable staying at the restaurant. It feels like a personal “force field”. I have found this very helpful and have used it when needed.

How about you? Have you found any specific prayers of protection that have been helpful? If so, please comment below. It is good for us to learn from each other – we all get stronger that way.

  1. I have questions that maybe you can help me answer. I was 18 when I experienced this but have had a life of what I can only explain as bad luck. I was 18 and my step dad had past myself and my ex husband was at his home lying in bed. Anyway the room was dark but there was an unrelenting darkness coming from the corner in that spot it was so dense and dark you could have cut it with a knife. It was not like anything I have ever experienced the hairs on both of our necks stood up and you could feel the evil. I have never before felt anything like that and haven’t since. However since I have gotten older I find this entering my mind recently and I am looking at it like a learning experience where few ever experience it and I truly know there is a God and Devil out there. I have found myself in the past 7 years gaining more spirituality I am not perfect; I have faltered several times but my heart longs to have a close relationship with my maker and savior. I was wondering if you could maybe pray for my protection because I feel there are forces out there who wish me harm and would like nothing better than to see me fail.

    • Michelle,
      Thanks for your post. I will pray for you. You said you had questions that you were looking for answers for. What are your questions?

      I’m sorry you had this negative experience. I can relate. Evil often tries to intimidate us by doing this sort of thing – making us feel afraid in a dark room. I have experienced this many times. I have learned how to deal with it. Now, if it happens, I know what to do to make it leave. 🙂 I can teach you this, if you wish.

      I agree that there are forces who wish you harm. You are not alone. If you draw near to God, He WILL draw near to you. Ask Him to reveal Himself to you. He is Love. When in doubt, always follow the path of true love – the kind that is unconditional and is self-sacrificing.

      If you would prefer to email me privately with your questions, you are welcome to do so. Some things you may feel comfortable posting on a blog and some things you may wish to keep private. My email is kingdomwalker2 (at) gmail (dot) com. Or you can post your questions in reply to this message.

      God be with you.

  2. Psalm 91 is a excellent prayer, written by Moses.
    I have found this extremely important. The military use this a lot.

  3. I likes the three ‘Rs’and they look like strong prayers. I thank GOD – I wish to protect myself and my family more because there are people who are against me and wish me evil, not to succeed in my life. Thanks

    I apply a hedge around me,over me ,and under me. I draw a bloodline of Jesus around our property and bind evil from entering. I plead the blood over the lines coming into my house,water,electricity and such.

  5. Thank you for this article. I really learned a lot especially on my end who just started this ministry. Please post more prayers for deliverance ministry – this really of great help. Thank you!
