“One of the crowd said, “Teacher, I brought You my son, who has a mute spirit. And wherever it seizes him, it throws him down; he foams at the mouth, gnashes his teeth, and becomes rigid. So I spoke to Your disciples, that they should cast it out, but they could not.”… So Jesus said to him, “This kind can come out by nothing but prayer and fasting.” — Mark 29:17, 18, 29
Save and protect, O Lord, these United States of America and have mercy on us.
Father, that which is wrong with America goes well beyond politics and economics. It is a spiritual sickness which infects the USA. No politician, no election, no piece of legislation, will cure spiritual sickness. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age. We know by your teachings that certain demons are more powerful than others, and that those cannot be cast aside easily, but only through the power of prayer.
Therefore, in prayer we turn to You, who delivered Your people from the bondage of the adversary, and through Your Son cast down Satan like lightning. We ask in prayer that You deliver these United States of America also from every influence of the unclean spirits. Command Satan, his demons, and all the principalities, powers, and rulers of the darkness of this age, to depart far from these United States by the power of Your only begotten Son. Rescue this nation and its people from demonic influence, delusion and darkness. Fill the American people with the light of the Holy Spirit that we may be guarded against the snares of the crafty demons. Grant that angels always watch over our nation and lead us to the path of righteousness forever, to the honor of Your glorious name, Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, now and ever and to the ages of ages. In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ we pray, Amen.
I base this prayer on Jesus’ healing of the demon possessed boy after His disciples had failed (Mark 9:14-29), on Paul’s teaching regarding prayer & “the whole armor of God” (Ephesians 6:10-20), and on a traditional Orthodox prayer against demonic influence. I hope you will pray this prayer often this week, and please share this prayer with others.
