Praying Against a Demon of Pornography – Part 8
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 106, 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 foe, man, wicked, people, and enemy as demons.

Start out by saying “Jesus, I repent of all of my sins. Please help me with my prayers. Thank you.”
1Praise the Lord. Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.
2Who can proclaim the mighty acts of the Lord or fully declare his praise?
3Blessed are they who maintain justice, who constantly do what is right.
4Remember me, O Lord, when you show favor to your people, come to my aid when you save them,
5that I may enjoy the prosperity of your chosen ones.
6We have sinned, even as our fathers did; we have done wrong and acted wickedly.
7When our fathers were in Egypt, they gave no thought to your miracles; they did not remember your many kindnesses, and they rebelled by the sea, the Red Sea.
8Yet he saved them for his name’s sake, to make his mighty power known.
9He rebuked the Red Sea, and it dried up; he led them through the depths as through a desert.
10He saved them from the hand of the foe; from the hand of the enemy he redeemed them.
11The waters covered their adversaries; not one of them survived.
12Then they believed his promises and sang his praise.
13But they soon forgot what he had done and did not wait for his counsel.
14In the desert they gave in to their craving; in the wasteland they put God to the test.
15So he gave them what they asked for, but sent a wasting disease upon them.
16In the camp they grew envious of Moses and of Aaron, who was consecrated to the Lord.
17The earth opened up and swallowed Dathan; it buried the company of Abiram.
18Fire blazed among their followers; a flame consumed the wicked.
19At Horeb they made a calf and worshiped an idol cast from metal.
20They exchanged their Glory for an image of a bull, which eats grass.
21They forgot the God who saved them, who had done great things in Egypt,
22miracles in the land of Ham and awesome deeds by the Red Sea.
23So he said he would destroy them — had not Moses, his chosen one, stood in the breach before him to keep his wrath from destroying them.
24Then they despised the pleasant land; they did not believe his promise.
25They grumbled in their tents and did not obey the Lord.
26So he swore to them with uplifted hand that he would make them fall in the desert,
27make their descendants fall among the nations and scatter them throughout the lands.
28They yoked themselves to the Baal of Peor and ate sacrifices offered to lifeless gods;
29they provoked the Lord to anger by their wicked deeds, and a plague broke out among them.
30But Phinehas stood up and intervened, and the plague was checked.
31This was credited to him as righteousness for endless generations to come.
32By the waters of Meribah they angered the Lord, and trouble came to Moses because of them;
33for they rebelled against the Spirit of God, and rash words came from Moses’ lips.
34They did not destroy the peoples as the Lord had commanded them,
35but they mingled with the nations and adopted their customs.
36They worshiped their idols, which became a snare to them.
37They sacrificed their sons and their daughters to demons.
38They shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan, and the land was desecrated by their blood.
39They defiled themselves by what they did, by their deeds they prostituted themselves.
40Therefore the Lord was angry with his people and abhorred his inheritance.
41He handed them over to the nations, and their foes ruled over them.
42Their enemies oppressed them and subjected them to their power.
43Many times he delivered them, but they were bent on rebellion and they wasted away in their sin.
44But he took note of their distress when he heard their cry;
45for their sake he remembered his covenant and out of his great love he relented.
46He caused them to be pitied by all who held them captive.
47Save us, O Lord our God, and gather us from the nations, that we may give thanks to your holy name and glory in your praise.
48Praise be to the Lord, the God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting. Let all the people say, “Amen!” Praise the Lord.
1Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.
2Let the redeemed of the Lord say this — those he redeemed from the hand of the foe,
3those he gathered from the lands, from east and west, from north and south.
4Some wandered in desert wastelands, finding no way to a city where they could settle.
5They were hungry and thirsty, and their lives ebbed away.
6Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress.
7He led them by a straight way to a city where they could settle.
8Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men,
9for he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things.
10Some sat in darkness and the deepest gloom, prisoners suffering in iron chains,
11for they had rebelled against the words of God and despised the council of the Most High.
12So he subjected them to bitter labor; they stumbled, and there was no one to help.
13Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress.
14He brought them out of darkness and the deepest gloom and broke away their chains.
15Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men,
16for he breaks down gates of bronze and cuts through bars of iron.
17Some became fools through their rebellious ways and suffered affliction because of their iniquities.
18They loathed all food and drew near the gates of death.
19Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble, and he saved them from their distress.
20He sent forth his word and healed them; he rescued them from the grave.
21Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men.
22Let them sacrifice thank offerings and tell of his works with songs of joy.
23Others went out on the sea in ships; they were merchants on the mighty waters.
24They saw the works of the Lord, his wonderful deeds in the deep.
25For he spoke and stirred up a tempest that lifted high the waves.
26They mounted up to the heavens and went down to the depths; in their peril their courage melted away.
27They reeled and staggered like drunken men; they were at their wits’ end.
28Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and he brought them out of their distress.
29He stilled the storm to a whisper; the waves of the sea were hushed.
30They were glad when it grew calm, and he guided them to their desired haven.
31Let them give thanks to the Lord for his unfailing love and his wonderful deeds for men.
32Let them exalt him in the assembly of the people and praise him in the council of the elders.
33He turned rivers into a desert, flowing springs into thirsty ground,
34and fruitful land into a salt waste, because of the wickedness of those who lived there.
35He turned the desert into pools of water and the parched ground into flowing springs;
36there he brought the hungry to live, and they founded a city where they could settle.
37They sowed fields and planted vineyards that yielded a fruitful harvest;
38he blessed them, and their numbers greatly increased, and he did not let their herds diminish.
39Then their numbers decreased, and they were humbled by oppression, calamity and sorrow;
40he who pours contempt on nobles made them wander in a trackless waste.
41But he lifted the needy out of their affliction and increased their families like flocks.
42The upright see and rejoice, but all the wicked shut their mouths.
43Whoever is wise, let him heed these things and consider the great love of the Lord.
1My heart is steadfast, O God; I will sing and make music with all my soul.
2Awake, harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn.
3I will praise you, O Lord, among the nations; I will sing of you among the peoples.
4For great is your love, higher than the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies.
5Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; and let your glory be over all the earth.
6Save us and help us with your right hand, that those you love may be delivered.
12Give us aid against the enemy, for the help of man is worthless.
13With God we will gain the victory, and he will trample down our enemies.
1O God, whom I praise, do not remain silent,
2for wicked and deceitful men have opened their mouths against me; they have spoken against me with lying tongues.
3With words of hatred they surround me; they attack me without cause.
15May their sins always remain before the Lord, that he may cut off the memory of them from the earth.
17He loved to pronounce a curse — may it come on him.
18He wore cursing as his garment; it entered into his body like water, into his bones like oil.
19May it be like a cloak wrapped about him, like a belt tied forever around him.
20May this be the Lord’s payment to my accusers, to those who speak evil of me.
21But you, O Sovereign Lord, deal well with me for your name’s sake; out of the goodness of your love, deliver me.
22For I am poor and needy, and my heart is wounded within me.
23I fade away like an evening shadow; I am shaken off like a locust.
24My knees give way from fasting; my body is thin and gaunt.
26Help me, O Lord my God; save me in accordance with your love.
27Let them know that it is your hand, that you, O Lord, have done it.
28They may curse, but you will bless [me]; when they attack they will be put to shame, but your servant will rejoice.
29My accusers will be clothed with disgrace and wrapped in shame as in a cloak.
30With my mouth I will greatly extol the Lord; in the great throng I will praise him.
31For he stands at the right hand of the needy one, to save his life from those who condemn him.
1Praise the Lord. I will extol the Lord with all my heart in the council of the upright and in the assembly.
2Great are the works of the Lord; they are pondered by all who delight in them.
3Glorious and majestic are his deeds, and his righteousness endures forever.
4He has caused his wonders to be remembered; the Lord is gracious and compassionate.
5He provides food for those who fear him; he remembers his covenant forever.
6He has shown his people the power of his works, giving them the lands of other nations.
7The works of his hands are faithful and just; all his precepts are trustworthy.
8They are steadfast for ever and ever, done in faithfulness and uprightness.
9He provided redemption for his people; he ordained his covenant forever —
holy and awesome is his name.
10The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. To him belongs eternal praise.
1Praise the Lord. Blessed is the man who fears the Lord, who finds great delight in his commands.
2His children will be mighty in the land; the generation of the upright will be blessed.
3Wealth and riches are in his house, and his righteousness endures forever.
4Even in darkness light dawns for the upright, for the gracious and compassionate and righteous man.
5Good will come to him who is generous and lends freely, who conducts his affairs with justice.
6Surely he will never be shaken; a righteous man will be remembered forever.
7He will have no fear of bad news; his heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord.
8His heart is secure, he will have no fear; in the end he will look in triumph on his foes.
9He has scattered abroad his gifts to the poor, his righteousness endures forever; his horn will be lifted high in honor.
10The wicked man will see and be vexed, he will gnash his teeth and waste away; the longings of the wicked will come to nothing.
