Prayers for Immediate Protection from the Powers of Darkness

In the early Church there were devout practices which sought protection from anything that was evil. Examples are: the thrice-daily praying of the Our Father, the use of psalms and other Old Testament scriptures. In addition to prayers were the protection given by Sacraments such as Baptism and the Eucharist, the use of sacramentals such as holy water and salt, making the sign of the cross and, within a few centuries, the displaying of a cross or crucifix. Today also sacraments and sacramentals continue to be very fitting accompaniments to prayer. Other powerful aids to prayer in our tradition are fasting and almsgiving.

In addition to these general activities are more immediate prayers used on occasions of perceived danger or temptation. This section provides prayers for immediate use in those times.
