Praying Against a Demon of Pornography – Part 5
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 66, 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 foes, enemy, wicked, and men as demons.

Start out by saying “Jesus, I repent of all of my sins. Please help me with my prayers. Thank you.”
1Shout with joy to God, all the earth!
2Sing the glory of his name; make his praise glorious!
3Say to God, “How awesome are your deeds! So great is your power that your enemies cringe before you.
4All the earth bows down to you; they sing praise to you, they sing praise to your name.”
5Come and see what God has done, how awesome his works in man’s behalf!
6He turned to see you to dry land, they pass through the waters on foot — come, let us rejoice in him.
7He rules forever by his power, his eyes watch the nations — let not the rebellious rise up against him.
8Praise our God, O peoples, the sound of his praise be heard;
9he has preserved our lives and kept our feet from slipping.
10For you, O God, tested us; you refine us like silver.
11You brought us into prison and laid burns on our backs.
13I will come to your temple with burnt offerings and fulfill my vows to you —
14vows my lips promised in my mouth spoke when I was in trouble.
16Come and listen, all you who fear God; let me tell you what he has done for me.
17I cried out to him with my mouth; his praise was on my tongue.
18If I had cherished sin in my heart, the Lord would not have listened;
19but God has surely listened and heard my voice in prayer.
20Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me!
1May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face shine upon us,
2that your ways may be known on earth, your salvation among all nations.
3May the peoples praise you, O God; may all the peoples praise you.
4May the nations be glad and sing for joy, for you rule the peoples justly and guide the nations of the earth.
5May the peoples praise you, O God; may all the peoples praise you.
6Then the land will yield his harvest, and God, our God, will bless us.
7God will bless us, and all the ends of the earth will fear him.
1May God arise, may his enemies be scattered; may his foes flee before him.
2As smoke is blown away by the wind, may you blow them away; as wax melts before the fire, may the wicked perish before God.
3But may the righteous be glad and rejoice before God; may they be happy and joyful.
4Sing to God, sing praise to his name, extol him who rides on the clouds — his name is the Lord — and rejoice before him.
5A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in his holy dwelling.
6God sets the lonely in families, he leads forth the prisoners with singing; but the rebellious live in a sun-scorched land.
19Praise be to the Lord, to God our Savior, who daily bears our burdens.
20Our God is a God who saves; from the Sovereign Lord comes escape from death.
32Sing to God, O kingdoms of the earth, sing praise to the Lord,
33to him who rides the ancient skies above, who thunders with mighty voice.
34Proclaim the power of God, whose majesty is over Israel, whose power is in the skies.
35You are awesome, O God, in your sanctuary; the God of Israel gives power and strength to his people.
Praise be to God.
1Save me, O God, for the waters have come up to my neck.
2I sink in the miry depths, where there is no foothold. I have come into the deep waters; the floods engulf me.
3I am worn out calling for help; my throat is parched. My eyes fail, looking for my God.
4Those who hate me without reason outnumber the hairs of my head; many are my enemies without cause, those who seek to destroy me. I am forced to restore what I did not steal.
5You know my folly, O God; my guilt is not hidden from you.
7For I endure scorn for your sake, and shame covers my face.
8I am a stranger to my brothers, an alien to my own mother’s sons.
13But I pray to you, O Lord, in the time of your favor; in your great love, O God, answer me with your sure salvation.
14Rescue me from the mire, do not let me sink; deliver me from those who hate me, from the deep waters.
15Do not let the floodwaters engulf me or the depths swallow me up or the pit close its mouth over me.
16Answer me, O Lord, out of the goodness of your love; in your great mercy turn to me.
17Do not hide your face from your servant; answer me quickly, for I am in trouble.
18Come near and rescue me; redeem me because of my foes.
19You know how I am scorned, disgraced and shamed; all my enemies are before you.
23May their eyes be darkened so they cannot see, and their backs be bent forever.
24Pour out your wrath on them; let your fierce anger overtake them.
25May their place be deserted; let there be no one to dwell in their tents.
27Charge them with crime upon crime.
29I am in pain and distress; may your salvation, O God, protect me.
30I will praise God’s name in song and glorify him with thanksgiving.
31This will please the Lord more than an ox, more than a bull with its horns and hoofs.
32The poor will see and be glad — you who seek God, may your hearts live!
33The Lord hears the needy and does not despise his captive people.
34Let heaven and earth praise him, the seas and all that move in them.
1Hasten, O God, to save me; O Lord, come quickly to help me.
2May those who seek my life be put to shame and confusion; may all who desire my ruin be turned back in disgrace.
3May those who say to me, “Aha! Aha!” turn back because of their shame.
4But may all who seek you rejoice and be glad in you; may those who love your salvation always say, “Let God be exalted!”
5Yet I am poor and needy; come quickly to me, O God. You are my help and my deliverer; O Lord, do not delay.
1In you, O Lord, I have taken refuge; let me never be put to shame.
2Rescue me and deliver me in your righteousness; turn your ear to me and save me.
3Be my rock of refuge, to which I can always go; give the command to save me, for you are my rock and my fortress.
4Deliver me, O my God, from the hand of the wicked, from the grasp of evil and cruel men.
7[If this pertains to you personally] I have become like a portent to many, but you are my strong refuge.
8My mouth is filled with your praise, declaring your splendor all day long.
9Do not cast me away when I am old; do not forsake me when my strength is gone.
10For my enemies speak against me; those who wait to kill me conspire together.
11They say, “God has forsaken him; pursue him and seize him, for no one will rescue him.”
12Be not far from me, O God; come quickly, O my God, to help me.
13May my accusers perish in shame; may those who want to harm me be covered with scorn and disgrace.
14But as for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more.
15My mouth will tell of your righteousness, of your salvation all day long, though I know not it’s measure.
16I will come and proclaim your mighty acts, O Sovereign Lord; I will proclaim your righteousness, yours alone.
17Since my youth, O God, you have taught me, and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds.=
18Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, O God, till I declare your power to the next generation, your might to all who are to come.
19Your righteousness reaches to the skies, O God, you who have done great things. Who, O God, is like you?
20Though you have made me see troubles, many and bitter, you will restore my life again; from the depths of the earth you will again bring me up.
21You will increase my honor and comfort me once again.
22I will praise you with the harp for your faithfulness, O my God; I will sing praise to you with the lyre, O Holy One of Israel.
23My lips will shout for joy when I sing praise to you — I, whom you have redeemed.
24My tongue will tell of your righteous acts all day long, for those who wanted to harm me have been put to shame and confusion.
23Yet I am always with you; you hold me by my right hand.
24You guide me with your counsel, and afterward you will take me into glory.
25Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you.
26My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.
27Those who are far from you will perish; you destroy all who are unfaithful to you.
28But as for me, it is good to be near God. I have made the Sovereign Lord my refuge; I will tell of all your deeds.
10How long will the enemy mock you, O God? Will the foe revile your name forever?
11Why do you hold back your hand, your right hand? Take it from the folds of your garment and destroy them!
12But you, O God, are my king from of old; you bring salvation upon the earth.
13It was you who split open the sea by your power; you broke the heads of the monster in the waters.
14It was you who crushed the heads of Leviathan and gave him as food to the creatures of the desert.
15It was you who opened up springs and streams; you dried up the ever flowing rivers.
16The day is yours, and yours also the night; you established the sun and moon.
17It was you who set all the boundaries of the earth; you made both summer and winter.
18Remember how the enemy has mocked you, O Lord, how foolish people have reviled your name.
19Do not hand over the life of your dove to wild beasts; do not forget the lives of your afflicted people forever.
20Have regard for your covenant, because haunts of violence fill the dark places of the land.
21Do not let the oppressed retreat in disgrace; may the poor and needy praise your name.
22Rise up, O God, and defend your cause; remember how fools mock you all day long.
23Do not ignore the clamor of your adversaries, the uproar of your enemies, which rises continually.
1We give thanks to you, O God, we give thanks, for your Name is near; men tell of your wonderful deeds.
2You say, “I choose the appointed time; it is I who judge uprightly.
3When the earth and all its people quake, it is I who hold its pillars firm.
4To the arrogant I say, ‘Boast no more,’ and to the wicked, ‘Do not lift up your horns.
5Do not lift your horns against heaven; do not speak with outstretched neck.’”
6No one from the east or the west or from the desert can exalt a man.
7But it is God who judges: He brings one down, he exalts another.
8In the hand of the Lord is a cup full of foaming wine mixed with spices; he pours it out, and all the wicked of the earth drink it down to its very dregs.
9As for me, I will declare this forever; I will sing praise to the God of Jacob.
10I will cut off the horns of all the wicked, but the horns of the righteous will be lifted up.
1I cried out to God for help; I cried out to God to hear me.
2When I was in distress, I sought the Lord; at night I stretched out untiring hands and my soul refuse to be comforted.
3I remembered you, O God, and I groaned; I mused, and my spirit grew faint.
4You kept my eyes from closing; I was too troubled to speak.
5I thought about the former days, the years of long ago;
6I remembered my songs in the night. My heart mused and my spirit inquired:
7“Will the Lord reject forever? Will he never show his favor again?
8Has his unfailing love vanished forever? Has his promise failed for all time?
9Has God forgotten to be merciful? Has he in anger withheld his compassion?”
10Then I thought, “To this I will appeal: the years of the right hand of the Most High.”
11I will remember the deeds of the Lord; yes, I will remember your miracles of long ago.
12I will meditate on all your works and consider all your mighty deeds.
13Your ways, O God, are holy. What god is so great as our God?
14You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples.
15With your mighty arm you redeemed your people.
