Praying Against a Demon of Pornography – Part 7
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, and so on.
Starting on Psalm 95, 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.

Start out by saying “Jesus, I repent of all of my sins. Please help me with my prayers. Thank you.”
1Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation.
2Let us come before him with thanksgiving and extol him with music and song.
3For the Lord is the great God, the great King above all gods.
4In his hand are the depths of the earth, and the mountain peaks belong to him.
5The sea is his, for he made it, and his hands formed the dry land.
6Come, let us bow down and worship, let us kneel before the Lord our maker;
7for he is our God and we are the people of his pasture, the flock under his care.
1Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth.
2Sing to the Lord, praise his name; proclaim his salvation day after day.
3Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples.
4For great is the Lord and most worthy of praise; he is to be feared above all gods.
5For all the gods of the nations are idols, but the Lord made the heavens.
6Splendor and majesty are before him; strength and glory are in his sanctuary.
7Ascribe to the Lord, O families of nations, ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
8Ascribe to the Lord the glory due his name; bring an offering and come into his courts.
9Worship the Lord in the splendor of his holiness; tremble before him, all the earth.
10Say among the nations, “The Lord reigns.” The world is firmly established, it cannot be moved; he will judge the peoples with equity.
11Let the heavens rejoice, let the earth be glad; let the sea resound, and all that is in it;
12let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them. Then all the trees of the forest will sing for joy;
13they will sing before the Lord, for he comes, he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world and righteousness and the peoples in his truth.
1The Lord reigns, let the earth be glad; let the distant shores rejoice.
2Clouds and thick darkness surround him; righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
3Fire goes before him and consumes his foes on every side.
4His lightning lights up the world; the earth sees and trembles.
5The mountains melt like wax before the Lord, before the Lord of all the earth.
6The heavens proclaim his righteousness, and all the people see his glory.
7All who worship images are put to shame, those who boast in idols — worship him, all you gods!
9For you, O Lord, are the Most High overall the earth; you are exalted far above all gods.
10Let those who love the Lord hate evil, for he guards the lives of his faithful ones and delivers them from the hand of the wicked.
11Light is shed upon the righteous and joy on the upright in the heart.
12Rejoice in the Lord, you who are righteous, and praise his holy name.
1Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things; his right hand and his holy arm have worked salvation for him.
2The Lord has made his salvation known and revealed his righteousness to the nations.
3He has remembered his love and his faithfulness to the house of Israel; all the ends of the earth have seen the salvation of our God.
4Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth, burst into jubilant song with music;
5make music to the Lord with the harp, with the harp and the sound of singing,
6with trumpets and the blast of the ram’s horn — shout for joy before the Lord, the King.
7Let the sea resound, and everything in it, the world, and all who live in it.
8Let the rivers clap their hands, let the mountains sing together for joy;
9let them sing before the Lord, for he comes to judge the earth. He will judge the world in righteousness and the peoples with equity.
1The Lord reigns, let the nations tremble; he sits enthroned between the cherubim, let the earth shake.
2Great is the Lord; he is exalted over all the nations.
3Let them praise your great and awesome name — he is holy.
4The King is mighty, he loves justice — you have established equity; in Jacob you have done what is just and right.
5Exalt the Lord our God and worship at his footstool; he is holy.
6Moses and Aaron were among his priests, Samuel was among those who called on his name; they called on the Lord and he answered them.
7He spoke to them from the pillar of the cloud; they kept his statutes and the decrees he gave them.
8O Lord our God, you answered them; you were to Israel a forgiving God, though you punished their misdeeds.
9Exalt the Lord our God and worship at his holy mountain, for the Lord our God is holy.
1Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth.
2Worship the Lord with gladness; come before him with joyful songs.
3Know that the Lord is God. It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, the sheep of his pasture.
4Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.
5For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations.
1I will sing of your love and justice; to you, O Lord, I will sing praise.
2I will be careful to lead a blameless life — when will you come to me? I will walk in my house with blameless heart.
3I will set before my eyes no vile thing.
4Men of perverse heart shall be far from me; I will have nothing to do with evil.
5Whoever slanders his neighbor in secret, him will I put to silence; whoever has haughty eyes and a proud heart, him will I not endure.
6My eyes will be on the faithful in the land, that they may dwell with me; he whose walk is blameless will minister to me.
7No one who practices deceit will dwell in my house; no one who speaks falsely will stand in my presence.
8Every morning I will put to silence all the wicked in the land.
1Hear my prayer, O Lord; let my cry for help come to you.
2Do not hide your face from me when I am in distress. Turn your ear to me; when I call, answer me quickly.
3For my days vanish like smoke; my bones burn like glowing embers.
4My heart is blighted and withered like grass; I forget to eat my food.
5Because of my loud groaning I am reduced to skin and bones.
6I am like a desert owl, like an owl among the ruins.
7I lie awake; I have become like a bird alone on a roof.
8All day long my enemies taunt me.
11My days are like the evening shadow; I wither away like grass.
12But you, O Lord, sit enthroned forever; your renown endures through all generations.
15The nations will fear the name of the Lord, all the kings of the earth will revere your glory.
17He will respond to the prayer of the destitute; he will not despise their plea.
18Let this be written for a future generation, that a people not yet created may praise the Lord.
25In the beginning you laid the foundations of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands.
26They will perish, but you remain; they will all wear out like a garment. Like clothing you will change them and they will be discarded.
27But you remain the same, and your years will never end.
1Praise the Lord, O my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name.
2Praise the Lord, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits —
3who forgives all your sins and heals all your diseases,
4who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion,
5who satisfies your desires with good things so that your youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
6The Lord works righteousness and justice for all the oppressed.
8The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love.
9He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor his anger forever;
10he does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities.
11For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his love for those who fear him;
12as far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.
13As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him;
14for he knows how we are formed, he remembers that we are dust.
15As for man, his days are like grass, he flourishes is like a flower of the field;
16 the wind blows over it and it is gone, and its place remembers it no more.
17But from everlasting to everlasting the Lord’s love is with those who fear him, and his righteousness with their children’s children —
18with those who keep his covenant and remember to obey his precepts.
19The Lord has established his throne in heaven, and his kingdom rules over all.
20Praise the Lord, you his angels, you mighty ones who do his bidding, who obey his word.
21Praise the Lord, all his heavenly hosts, you his servants who do his will.
22Praise the Lord, all his works everywhere in his dominion. Praise the Lord, O my soul.
1Praise the Lord, O my soul. O Lord my God, you are very great; you are clothed with splendor and majesty.
2He wraps himself in light as with a garment; he stretches out the heavens like a tent
3and lays the beams of his upper chambers on their waters. He makes the clouds his chariot and rides on the wings of the wind.
4He makes winds his messengers, flames of fire his servants.
5He set the earth on its foundations; it can never be moved.
6You covered it with the deep as with a garment; the waters stood above the mountains.
7But at your rebuke the waters fled, at the sound of your thunder they took the flight;
8they flowed over the mountains, they went down into the valleys, to the place you assigned for them.
9You set a boundary they cannot cross; never again will they cover the earth.
10He makes springs pour water into the ravines; it flows between the mountains.
11They give water to all the beasts of the field; the wild donkeys quench their thirst.
12The birds of the air nest by the waters; they sing among the branches.
13He waters the mountains from his upper chambers; the earth is satisfied by the fruit of his work.
14He makes grass grow for the cattle, and plants for man to cultivate — bringing forth food from the earth:
15wine that gladdens the heart of man, oil to make his face shine, and bread that sustains his heart.
16The trees of the Lord are well watered, the cedars of Lebanon that he planted.
17There the birds make their nests; the stork has its home in the pine trees.
18The high mountains belong to the wild goats; the crags are a refuge for the conies.
19The moon marks off the seasons, and the sun knows when to go down.
20You bring darkness, it becomes night, and all the beasts of the forest prowl.
21The lions roar for their prey and seek their food from God.
22The sun rises, and they steal away; they return and lie down in their dens.
23Then man goes out to his work, to his labor until evening.
24How many are your works, O Lord! In wisdom you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures.
25There is the sea, vast and spacious, teeming with creatures beyond number — living things both large and small.
26There the ships go to and fro, and the leviathan, which you formed to frolic there.
27These all look to you to give them their food at the proper time.
28When you give it to them, they gather it up; when you open your hand, they are satisfied with good things.
29When you hide your face, they are terrified; when you take away their breath, they die and return to the dust.
30When you send your Spirit, they are created, and you renew the face of the earth.
31May the glory of the Lord endure forever; may the Lord rejoice in his works —
32he who looks at the earth, and it trembles, who touches the mountains, and they smoke.
33I will sing to the Lord all my life; I will sing praise to my God as long as I live.
34May my meditation be pleasing to him, as I rejoice in the Lord.
35But may sinners vanish from the earth and the wicked be no more. Praise the Lord, O my soul. Praise the Lord.
1Give thanks to the Lord, call on his name; make known among the nations what he has done.
2Sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts.
3Glory in his holy name; let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.
4Look to the Lord and his strength; seek his face always.
5Remember the wonders he has done, his miracles, and the judgments he pronounced.
7He is the Lord our God; his judgements are in all the earth.
8He remembers his covenant forever, the word he commanded, for a thousand generations.
