EXORCISM PRAYER (Orthodox Christian)


Saint John Chrysostom

O Eternal God, Who has redeemed the race of men from the captivity of the devil, deliver Thy servant/handmaid from all the workings of unclean spirits. Command the evil and impure spirits and demons to depart from the soul and body of Your servant/handmaid and not to remain nor hide in him/her. Let them be banished from this the creation of Thy hands in Thine own Holy Name and that of Thine Only-begotten Son, and of Thy Life-creating Spirit, so that, after being cleansed from all demonic influence, he/she may live godly, justly and righteously and may be counted worthy to receive the Holy Mysteries (Sacraments) of Thine Only-begotten Son and our God with Whom Thou art blessed and glorified together with the All-Holy and Good and Life-creating Spirit and ever and unto the ages of ages. Amen.

O Thou Who rebuked all unclean spirits and by The power of Thy Word has banished the legion, come now, through Thine Only-begotten Son upon this creature, which Thou hast fashioned in Thine Own Image and deliver him/her from the adversary that holds him/her in bondage, so that, receiving Thy mercy and becoming purified, he/she might join the ranks of Thy holy flock and be preserved as a living temple of the Holy Spirit and might receive the divine and holy Mysteries through the grace and compassion and loving kindness of Thine Only-begotten Son with Whom Thou art Blessed together with Thine All-Holy and life-giving Spirit now and ever and unto the ages of ages. Amen.
