Hedge Prayer for Protection of Priests & Religious

Spiritual Warfare Catalog Entry Return to Catalog Index Hedge Prayer for Protection of Priests & Religious [The Hedge Prayer of Protection is one of the most powerful prayers in the arsenal of spiritual warfare. We learn from Job that God has placed a hedge of protection around his children that Satan cannot cross except that God allows it (or as we allow it). It should be noted, as it is with all prayer, the Hedge Prayer of Protection is not a magic bullet. There are no guarantees that the Hedge surrounding us cannot be breached. We can allow Satan and his demons to breach the Hedge by our carelessness of leaving the gate open, through direct or indirect invitation to the demons, through sins of commission and omission, through holes left unrepaired after sins are confessed and forgiven, through ancestral afflictions, etc. Even if there are no other reasons, God may allow demons to breach the hedge, as He did with Job, for purposes of testing, learning, or other Divine Reasons that only God may know. And the LORD said to Satan, Have you considered my servant Job, that there is none like him on the earth, a blameless and upright man, who fears God and turns away from evil? Then Satan answered the LORD, Does Job fear God for naught? Hast thou not put a hedge about him and his house and all that he has, on every side? Thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his possessions have increased in the land. –Job 1:8-10 Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and he will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners, and purify your hearts, you men of double mind. — James 4:7-8] Trusting in the promise that whatever we ask the Father in Jesus-€™ name He will do, I now approach You Father with confidence in Our Lord- words and in Your infinite power and love for me and for Your Priest/Religious, Father/Brother/Sister [person’s name].- With the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God, the Blessed Apostles Peter and Paul, Blessed Archangel Michael, my guardian angel and the guardian angel of Father/Brother/Sister- [person’s name] , with all the saints and angels of heaven, and Holy in the power of His blessed Name, I ask you Father to protect Father/Brother/Sister- [person’s name] and keep him/her from the harassment of the devil and his minions. Father I ask on behalf of Father/Brother/Sister- [person’s name] that You build a hedge of protection around him/her, like that which surrounded Job, and to help Father/Brother/Sister- [person’s name] to keep that hedge repaired and the gate locked so that the devil and his minions have no access or means to breach the hedge except by your expressed will. Father, I know that we are powerless against the spiritual forces of evil and recognize our utter dependence on You and Your power. Look with mercy upon Father/Brother/Sister- [person’s name] . Do not look upon his/her sins, O Lord; rather, look at the sufferings of your Beloved Son and see the Victim whose bitter passion and death has reconciled us to You. By the victory of the cross, protect Father/Brother/Sister- [person’s name] from all evil and rebuke any evil spirits who wish to attack, influence, or breach Your hedge of protection in any way. Send them immediately and quietly back to Hell and fortify Your Hedge for his/her protection by the blood of Your Son, Jesus. Send your Holy Angels to watch over and protect him/her. [If praying for a Priest] Father in heaven, I ask special protection for your servant priest, Father [person’s name]. As your priest you have entrusted to him the care of your children and have- especially entrusted to him to bring the Sacraments to your Faithful. Because of this Satan hates your priests more than any other people on earth. I pray, Lord, that the Hedge of Protection that you place around Father [person’s name] will be especially strong. I also pray, Lord, that you will strengthen Father [person’s name] that he may be able to deflect the flaming arrows of the Evil One, that Father [person’s name] will take care to always put on the armor of God that he may be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might (Eph 6:10). With that I offer Ephesians 6:10-18 as a prayer for Father [person’s name]: Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. We are not contending against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against the powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having fastened the belt of truth around your waist, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the equipment of the gospel of peace; besides all these, taking the shield of faith, with which you can quench all the flaming darts of the Evil One. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Pray at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints… In the name of the Father, and of the Son -€ , and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. [if praying for a Religious] Father in heaven, I ask special protection for your servant Brother/Sister [person’s name]. As your consecrated brother/sister you have entrusted to him/her the ministry of prayer for your Church and your children,- and the apostolate according to the calling of his/her Order. Because of this ministry Satan hates your religious second only to his hatred of priests. I pray, Lord, that the Hedge of Protection that You place around Brother/Sister [person’s name] will be especially strong. I also pray, Lord, that you will strengthen Brother/Sister [person’s name] that he/she may be able to deflect the flaming arrows of the Evil One, that Brother/Sister [person’s name] will take care to always put on the armor of God that he/she may be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might (Eph 6:10). With that I offer Ephesians 6:10-18 as a prayer for Brother/Sister [person’s name]: Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. We are not contending against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against the powers, against the world rulers of this present darkness, against the spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. Stand therefore, having fastened the belt of truth around your waist, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the equipment of the gospel of peace; besides all these, taking the shield of faith, with which you can quench all the flaming darts of the Evil One. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Pray at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. To that end keep alert with all perseverance, making supplication for all the saints… Father, all of these things I ask in the most holy name of Jesus Christ, Your Son. Thank you, Father, for hearing my prayer. I love You, I worship You, I thank You and I trust in You. And I thank you for protecting your priests and religious. Amen.
