Praying Against a Demon of Pornography – Part 3

If you’re dealing with temptation, depression, oppression (your feelings and emotions are being robbed of you), etc., it can be difficult to know what to pray. Reading through Psalms works if you’re fighting a demon of pornography, battling depression, etc., or you just don’t know what to say when you’re praying.

Starting on Chapter 36, below are specific scriptures taken from Psalms that directly relate to fighting ALL demonic spirits.

You can do this yourself while reading through the whole book of Psalms, just like I did when I listed the scriptures below, just skip the ones that don’t pertain to your personal prayers.

When you say these scriptures, don’t just say them, “pray” them.

If you start reading (praying) and it feels like you don’t want to continue, PUSH through it.

Refer to wicked and enemies as demons.

Start out by saying “Jesus, I repent of all of my sins. Please help me with my prayers. Thank you.”
Psalm 36
5Your love, O Lord, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies.
6Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the great deep.
7How priceless is your unfailing love! Both high and low among men find refuge in the shadow of your wings.
8They feast on the abundance of your house; you give them drink from your river of delights.
9For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.
Psalm 37
4Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.
5Commit your way to the Lord; trust in him and he will do this:
6He will make your righteousness shine like the dawn, the justice of your cause like the noonday sun.
10A little while, and the wicked will be no more; though you look for them, they will not be found.
12The wicked plot against the righteous and gnash their teeth at them;
13but the Lord laughs at the wicked, for he knows their day is coming.
14The wicked draw the sword and bend the bow to bring down the poor and needy, to slay those whose ways are upright.
15But their swords will pierce their own hearts, and their bows will be broken.
17for the power of the wicked will be broken, but the Lord upholds the righteous.
23If the Lord delights in a man’s way, he makes his steps firm;
24though he stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand.
27Turn from evil and do good; then you will dwell in the land forever.
28For the Lord loves the just and will not forsake his faithful ones.
34Wait for the Lord and keep his way. He will exalt you to inherit the land; when the wicked are cut off, you will see it.
39The salvation of the righteous comes from the Lord; he is their stronghold in time of trouble.
40The Lord helps them and delivers them; he delivers them from the wicked and saves them, because they take refuge in him.
Psalm 38
1O Lord, do not rebuke me in your anger or discipline me in your wrath.
2For your arrows have pierced me, and your hand has come down upon me.
3Because of your wrath there is no health in my body; my bones have no soundness because of my sin.
4My guilt has overwhelmed me like a burden too heavy to bear.
5My wounds fester and are loathsome because of my sinful folly.
6I am bowed down and brought very low; all day long I go about morning.
7My back is filled with searing pain; there is no health in my body.
8I am feeble and utterly crushed; I groan in anguish of heart.
9All my longings lie open before you, O Lord; my sighing is not hidden from you.
10My heart pounds, my strength fails me; even the light has gone from my eyes.
[In case this specific verse pertains to you] 11My friends and companions avoid me because of my wounds; my neighbors stay far away.
12Those who seek my life set their traps, those who would harm me talk of my ruin; all day long they plot deception.
15I wait for you, O Lord; you will answer, O Lord my God.
17For I am about to fall, and my pain is ever with me.
18I confess my iniquity; I am troubled by my sin.
19Many are those who are my vigorous enemies; those who hate me without reason are numerous.
20Those who repay my good with evil slander me when I pursue what is good.
21O Lord, do not forsake me; be not far from me, O my God.
22Come quickly to help me, O Lord my Savior.
Psalm 39
1I said, “I will watch my ways and keep my tongue from sin; I will put a muzzle on my mouth as long as the wicked are in my presence.”
2But when I was silent and still, not even saying anything good, my anguish increased.
7But now, Lord, what do I look for? My hope is in you.
8Save me from all my transgressions; do not make me the scorn of fools.
10Remove your scourge from me; I am overcome by the blow of your hand.
11You rebuke and discipline men for their sin; you consume their wealth like a moth – each man is but a breath.
12“Hear my prayer, O Lord, listen to my cry for help; be not deaf to my weeping. For I dwell with you as an alien, a stranger, as all my fathers were.
13Look away from me, that I may rejoice again before I depart and am no more.”
Psalm 40
1I waited patiently for the Lord; he turned to me and heard my cry.
2He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand.
3He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see in fear and put their trust in the Lord.
4Blessed is the man who makes the Lord his trust, who does not look to the proud, to those who turn aside to false gods.
5Many, O Lord my God, are the wonders you have done. The things you planned for us no one can we count to you; were I to speak and tell of them, they would be too many to declare.
11Do not withhold your mercy from me, O Lord; may your love in your truth always protect me.
12For troubles without number surround me; my sins have overtaken me, and I cannot see. They are more than the hairs of my head, and my heart fails within me.
13Be pleased, O Lord, to save me; O Lord, come quickly to help me.
14May all who seek to take my life be put to shame and confusion; may all who desire my ruin be turned back in disgrace.
15May those who say to me, “Aha! Aha!” be appalled at their own shame.
16But may all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; may those who love your salvation always say, “The Lord be exalted!”
17Yet I am poor and needy; may the Lord think of me. You are my help and my deliverer; O my God, do not delay.
Psalm 41
4I said, “O Lord, have mercy on me; heal me, for I have sinned against you.”
5My enemies say of me in malice, “When will he die and his name perish?”
7All my enemies whisper together against me; they imagine the worst for me, saying,
8“A vile disease has beset him; he will never get up from the place where he lies.”
10But you, O Lord, have mercy on me; raise me up that I may repay them.
11I know that you are pleased with me, for my enemy does not triumph over me.
12In my integrity you uphold me and set me in your presence forever.
13Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting.
Psalm 42
1As the deer pants for streams of water, so my soul pants for you, O God.
2My soul thirsts for God, for the living God. When can I go and meet with God?
3My tears have been my food day and night, while men say to me all day long, “Where is your God?”
5Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.
8By day the Lord directs his love, at night his song is with me – a prayer to the God of my life.
9I say to God my Rock, “Why have you forgotten me? Why must I go about mourning, oppressed by the enemy?”
10My bones suffer mortal agony as my foes taunt me, saying to me all day long, “Where is your God?”
11Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.
Psalm 43
2You are God my stronghold. Why have you rejected me? Why must I go about mourning, oppressed by the enemy?
3Send forth your light and your truth, let them guide me; let them bring me to your holy mountain, to the place where you dwell.
4Then will I go to the altar of God, to God, my joy and my delight. I will praise you with the harp, O God, my God.
5Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.
Psalm 44
5Through you we push back our enemies; through your name we trample our foes.
6I do not trust in my bow, my sword does not bring me victory;
7but you give us victory over our enemies, you put our adversaries to shame.
8In God we make our boast all day long, and we will praise your name forever.
Psalm 46
1God is our refuge and strength, in ever-present help in trouble.
2Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
3though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.
7The Lord Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress.
8Come and see the works of the Lord, the desolations he has brought on the earth.
9He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth; he breaks the bow and shatters the spear, he burns the shields with fire.
10“Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
11The Lord almighty is with us; the god of Jacob is our fortress.
