Praying Against a Demon of Pornography – Part 6
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 83, 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 enemies, men, wicked, and evildoers as demons.

Start out by saying “Jesus, I repent of all of my sins. Please help me with my prayers. Thank you.”
1O God, do not keep silent; be not quiet, O God, be not still.
2See how your enemies are astir, how your foes rear their heads.
3With cunning they conspire against your people; they plot against those you cherish.
5With one mind they plot together; they form an alliance against you.
13Make them like tumbleweed, O my God, like chaff before the wind.
14As fire consumes the forest or a flame sets the mountains ablaze,
15so pursue them with your tempest and terrify them with your storm.
16Cover their faces with shame so that men will seek your name, O Lord.
17May they ever be ashamed and dismayed; may they perish in disgrace.
18Let them know that you, whose name is the Lord — that you alone are the Most High over all the earth.
1How lovely is your dwelling place, O Lord Almighty!
2My soul yearns, even faints, for the courts of the Lord; my heart and my flesh cry out for the living God.
3Even the sparrow has found a home, and the swallow a nest for herself, where she may have her young — a place near your altar, O Lord Almighty, my King and my God.
4Blessed are those who dwell in your house; they are ever praising you.
8Hear my prayer, O Lord God Almighty; listen to me, O God of Jacob.
9Look upon our shield, O God; look with favor on your anointed one.
10Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere; I would rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God than dwell in the tents of the wicked.
11For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favor and honor; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.
12O Lord Almighty, blessed is the man who trusts in you.
2You forgave the iniquity of your people and covered all their sins.
3You set aside all your wrath and turned from your fierce anger.
4Restore us again, O God our Savior, and put away your displeasure toward us.
5Will you be angry with us forever? Will you prolong your anger through all generations?
6Will you not revive us again, that your people may rejoice in you?
7Show us your unfailing love, O Lord, and grant us your salvation.
8I will listen to what God the Lord will say; he promises peace to his people, his saints — but let them not return to folly.
9Surely his salvation is near those who fear him, that his glory may dwell in our land.
1Hear, O Lord, and answer me, for I am poor and needy.
2Guard my life, for I am devoted to you. You are my God; save your servant who trusts in you.
3Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I call to you all day long.
4Bring joy to your servant, for to you, O Lord, I lift up my soul.
5You are forgiving and good, O Lord, abounding in love to all who call to you.
6Hear my prayer, O Lord; listen to my cry for mercy.
7In the day of my trouble I will call to you, for you will answer me.
8Among the gods there is none like you, O Lord; no deeds can compare with yours.
9All the nations you have made will come and worship before you, O Lord; they will bring glory to your name.
10For you are great and do marvelous deeds; you alone are God.
11Teach me your way, O Lord, and I will walk in your truth; give me an undivided heart, that I may fear your name.
12I will praise you, O Lord my God, with all my heart; I will glorify your name forever.
13For great is your love toward me; you have delivered me from the depths of the grave.
14The arrogant are attacking me, O God; a band of ruthless men seeks my life — men without regard for you.
15But you, O Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.
16Turn to me and have mercy on me; grant your strength to your servant and save the son of your maidservant.
17Give me a sign of your goodness, that my enemies may see it and be put to shame, for you, O Lord, have helped me and comforted me.
1O Lord, the God who saves me, day and night I cry out before you.
2May my prayer come before you; turn your ear to my cry.
3For my soul is full of trouble and my life draws near the grave.
4I am counted among those who go down to the pit; I am like a man without strength.
5I am set apart with the dead, like the slain who lie in the grave, whom you remember no more, who are cut off from your care.
6You have put me in the lowest pit, in the darkest depths.
7Your wrath lies heavily upon me; you have overwhelmed me with all of your waves.
8You have taken from me my closest friends and have made me repulsive to them. I am confined and cannot escape;
9my eyes are dim with grief. I call to you, O Lord, every day; I spread out my hands to you.
10Do you show your wonders to the dead? Do those who are dead rise up and praise you?
11Is your love declared in the grave, your faithfulness in Destruction?
12Are your wonders known in the place of darkness, or your righteous deeds in the land of oblivion?
13But I cried to you for help, O Lord; in the morning my prayer comes before you.
14Why, O Lord, do you reject me and hide your face from me?
15From my youth I have been afflicted and close to death; I have suffered your terrors and am in despair.
16Your wrath has swept over me; your terrors have destroyed me.
17All day long they surround me like a flood; they have completely engulfed me.
18You have taken my companions and loved ones from me; the darkness is my closest friend.
1I will sing of the Lord’s great love forever; with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known through all generations.
2I will declare that your love stands firm forever, that you establish your faithfulness in heaven itself.
5The heavens praise your wonders, O Lord, your faithfulness too, in the assembly of the holy ones.
6For who in the skies above can compare with the Lord? Who is like the Lord among the heavenly beings?
7In the council of the holy ones God is greatly feared; he is more awesome than all who surround him.
8O Lord God Almighty, who is like you? You are mighty, O Lord, and your faithfulness surrounds you.
9You rule over the surging sea; when its waves mount up, you still them.
11The heavens are yours, and yours also the earth; you founded the world and all that is in it.
12You created the north and the south.
13Your arm is endued with power; your hand is strong, your right hand exalted.
14Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne; love and faithfulness go before you.
15Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you, who walk in the light of your presence, O Lord.
16They rejoice in your name all day long; they exult in your righteousness.
17For you are their glory and strength, and by your favor you exalt our horn.
18Indeed, our shield belongs to the Lord, our King to the Holy One of Israel.
1Lord, you have been our dwelling place throughout all generations.
2Before the mountains were born or you brought forth the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting you are God.
3You turn men back to dust, saying, “Return to dust, O sons of men.”
4For a thousand years in your sight are like a day that has just gone by, or like a watch in the night.
5You sweep men away in the sleep of death; they are like the new grass of the morning —
6though in the morning it springs up new, by evening it is dry and withered.
7We are consumed by your anger and terrified by your indignation.
8You have set our iniquities before you, our secret sins in the light of your presence.
9All our days pass away under your wrath; we finish our years with a moan.
10The length of our days is seventy years — or eighty, if we have the strength; yet their span is but trouble and sorrow, for they quickly passed, and we fly away.
11Who knows the power of your anger? For your wrath is as great as the fear that is due you.
12Teach us to number our days aright, that we may gain a heart of wisdom.
13Relent, O Lord! How long will it be? Have compassion on your servants.
14Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.
15Make us glad for as many days as you have afflicted us, for as many years as we have seen trouble.
16May your deeds be shown to your servants, your splendor to their children.
17May the favor of the Lord our God rest upon us; establish the work of our hands for us — yes, established the work of our hands.
1He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.
2I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.”
3Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence.
4He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
5You will not fear the terror of night, nor the arrow that flies by day,
6nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness, nor the plague that destroys at midday.
7A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.
8You will only observe with your eyes and see the punishment of the wicked.
9If you make the Most High your dwelling — even the Lord, who is my refuge —
10then no harm will befall you, no disaster will come near your tent.
11For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways;
12they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13You will tread upon the lion and the cobra; you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14“Because he loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him; I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15He will call upon me, and I will answer him; I will be with him in trouble, I will deliver him and honor him.
16With long life will I satisfy him and show him my salvation.”
1It is good to praise the Lord and make music to your name, O Most High,
2to proclaim your love in the morning and your faithfulness at night,
3to the music of the ten-stringed lyre and melody of the harp.
4For you make me glad by your deeds, O Lord; I sing for joy at the works of your hands.
5How great are your works, O Lord, how profound your thoughts!
6The senseless man does not know, fools do not understand,
7that though the wicked spring up like grass and all evildoers flourish, they will be forever destroyed.
8But you, O Lord, are exalted forever.
9For surely your enemies, O Lord, surely your enemies will perish; all evildoers will be scattered.
10You have exalted my horn like that of a wild ox; fine oils have been poured upon me.
11My eyes have seen the defeat of my adversaries; my ears have heard the rout of my wicked foes.
12The righteous will flourish like a palm tree, they will grow like a cedar of Lebanon;
13planted in the house of the Lord, they will flourish in the courts of our God.
14They will still bear fruit in old age, they will stay fresh and green,
15proclaiming, “The Lord is upright; he is my Rock, there is no wickedness in him.”
1The Lord reigns, he is robed in majesty; the Lord is robed in majesty and is armed with strength. The world is firmly established; it cannot be moved.
2Your throne was established long ago; you are from all eternity.
3The seas have lifted up, O Lord, the seas have lifted up their voice; the seas have lifted up their pounding waves.
4Mightier than the thunder of the great waters, mightier than the breakers of the sea — the Lord on high is mighty.
5Your statutes stand firm; holiness adorns your house for endless days, O Lord.
1O Lord, the God who avenges, O God who avenges, shine forth.
2Rise up, O Judge of the earth; pay back to the proud what they deserve.
3How long will the wicked, O Lord, how long will the wicked be jubilant?
4They pour out arrogant words; all the evildoers are full of boasting.
5They crush your people, O Lord; they oppress your inheritance.
7They say, “The Lord does not see; the God of Jacob pays no heed.”
9Does he who implanted the ear not hear? Does he who formed the eye not see?
10Does he who disciplines nations not punish? Does he who teaches man lack knowledge?
11The Lord knows the thoughts of man; he knows that they are futile.
12Blessed is the man you discipline, O Lord, the man you teach from your law;
13you grant him relief from days of trouble, till a pit is dug for the wicked.
14For the Lord will not reject his people; he will never forsake his inheritance.
15Judgment will again be founded on righteousness, and all the upright in heart will follow it.
16Who will rise up for me against the wicked? Who will take a stand for me against evildoers?
17Unless the Lord had given me help, I would soon have dwelt in the silence of death.
18When I said, “My foot is slipping,” your love, O Lord, supported me.
19When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul.
20Can a corrupt throne be allied with you — one that brings on misery by its decrees?
21They band together against the righteous and condemn the innocent to death.
22But the Lord has become my fortress, and my God the rock in whom I take refuge.
23He will repay them for their sins and destroy them for their wickedness; the Lord our God will destroy them.
