PERSONAL SPIRITUAL WARFARE (For the deliverance of one's person or place from evil spirits)

Reminders:

1. Use the following prayers when you believe an evil spirit is harassing you, tempting you gravely, making you feel fear by letting itself be felt, giving you pain or sickness, causing bad thoughts in your mind, attacking you in your sleep, etc.
2. They can also be used for pieces when you sense their presence.
3. Be prepared. As much as possible, be in the state of grace, have holy water, a scapular and wear a St. Benedict's medal. These items must be used with faith ("God and Mother Mary are watching over me; I am theirs") and not with superstition.
4. Pray all prayers with the heart.
5. Do not be afraid; know who you belong to. The evil spirits are afraid of Catholics who
know their identity as children of God.
6. Before praying the prayers, place yourself in God’s presence and sense His nearness. 

SIGN OF THE CROSS
In the name of the Father and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

MY ENCOUNTER WITH AN EXORCIST AND HOW HE CLOSED MY OCCULT THIRD EYE

As I lay in bed around 11 pm on August 9, 2017 which was my mom’s birthday, I was still trying to process what just happened to me earlier that evening. It was after 7 pm when Fr. Daniel invited me for a pray over session at his parish, the Sto. Nino de Taguig Church. I didn’t know what to expect for he was a man of a few words as he is always busy, being the only exorcist in the diocese of Pasig. Mel T. referred me to him when I encountered something demonic on my way home from last July’s RTD. I was harassed by what looked like a witch and I believe it tried to kill me.

HOW I PLAN TO BE A BETTER PARENT - JANUARY 2017

Yesterday, my husband was re-promulgated and was convicted to life imprisonment with a huge fine imposed in Manila RTC Branch 41. In spite of this devastating news for my family including the future of my children, I remain steadfast in my faith that God is sovereign, He is in control for He has lovingly prepared me for this moment.

A GLIMPSE OF HEAVEN IN BULACAN - VISITA IGLESIA MARCH 2017

I have always wanted to go on a pilgrimage (local or foreign) but never really exerted the effort to join one. So when they announced the Visita Iglesia 2017 Bulacan Pilgrimage, I was totally ecstatic. And I wasn’t disappointed. First church we went to was the St. John the Baptist in Calumpit and I was so happy that they had in their possession the relic of St. John himself underneath a gigantic painting of him baptizing Jesus. I have just finished reading the 4 Gospels so I really felt this picture was almost jumping out at me.

MY ST. MICHAEL AND ANGELS EXPERIENCE - JUNE 2017

When I signed up as a Sunday servant for the Youth Camp retreat one weekend, I knew it would be a spirit filled and humbling experience. But I wasn't aware that it was scheduled on a Pentecost Sunday until Ciel mentioned it during last Friday's prayer meeting. So I was super kaduper excited when I got there because I was expecting something spectacular to happen (as I have the gift of vision) during the baptism of the holy spirit. And thankfully God did not disappoint.

10 POWERFUL WEAPONS FOR BATTLING THE DEVIL from Aleteia

We Christians face a spiritual battle each day. The Word of God teaches us that our life on earth is a constant struggle against the Evil One, and it reminds us that we have decided to follow Christ and to be always ready to face the Devil’s blows. To make this Lent a time of authentic conversion, with no concessions given to the demons, we present you with 10 effective spiritual weapons.

1. Lead an ordered life.
First, pay great attention to prayer, which is the foundation of your spiritual life. Find time also to read the Bible. We suggest you reflect on the Gospel of St. Matthew, chapter 25, verses 35-40.
You also need to be firmly rooted in your vocation. It might be a married life, priesthood, consecrated life, etc., but whatever it is, you have to be faithful in all things to the call God has given you.
Lastly, dedicate some time to the Church. We know we haven’t all been called to full-time ministry in the Church, but we can all collaborate in some way, according to our own possibilities.

2. Categorically reject temptation.
One problem in the spiritual battle is being slow and weak in our response to temptation. But with God’s grace, you can strengthen your will and decisively and roundly reject temptation from the outset. On the other hand, we often have temptations because we put ourselves into a near occasion of sin. Always remember this proverb: “Whoever plays with fire eventually gets burned.”

3. Identify the enemy and ask God for help.
When we fall into temptation, it’s very useful to admit it, saying: “The Devil, the enemy of God, is tempting me.” Name him and say short prayers asking the Lord for help. Here are a few examples of very powerful short prayers: “Jesus, I trust in you,” “Sweet Heart of Mary, be my salvation,” “Lord, save me,” and “Lord, make haste to help me.” Invoke the holy names of Jesus, Mary and Joseph with faith and trust.

SATAN'S 10 STRATEGIES AGAINST YOU by John Piper

. . . that we would not be outwitted by Satan; for we are not ignorant of his designs. (2 Corinthians 2:11)

One of the most sobering facts about life is that all humans have a supernatural enemy whose aim is to use pain and pleasure to make us blind, stupid, and miserable — forever. The Bible calls him “the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world . . . the accuser” (Revelation 12:9–10), “the ruler of this world” (John 12:31), and “the god of this age” (2 Corinthians 4:4).

He is our “adversary [who] prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour” (1 Peter 5:8). Yet, in the most appalling and unwitting bondage, the whole world willingly “follows the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that is now at work in the sons of disobedience” (Ephesians 2:2). At his most successful, his subjects march obliviously to destruction, and take as many with them as they can.

The “good warfare” (1 Timothy 1:18) that I wrote about under the title “Awake and at War” includes the daily resistance of this enemy (1 Peter 5:9; James 4:7), the daily refusal to give him an opportunity (Ephesians 4:27), and the daily stand against his schemes (Ephesians 6:11).
