Praying Against a Demon of Pornography – Part 9
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 say when you’re praying. Reading through Psalms works if you’re fighting a demon of pornography, battling depression, and so on.
Starting on Psalm 113, 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 nations, rulers, men, man, persecutors, and evildoers as demons.

1Praise the Lord. Praise, O servants of the Lord, praise the name of the Lord.
2Let the name of the Lord be praised, both now and forevermore.
3From the rising of the sun to the place where it sets, the name of the Lord is to be praised.
4The Lord is exalted over all the nations, his glory above the heavens.
5Who is like the Lord our God, the One who sits enthroned on high,
6who stoops down to look on the heavens and the earth.
7He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the needy from the ash heap;
8he seats them with princes, with the princes of their people.
9He settles the barren woman in her home as a happy mother of children. Praise the Lord.
1Not to us, O Lord, not to us but to your name be the glory, because of your love and faithfulness.
2Why do the nations say, “Where is their God?”
3Our God is in heaven; he does whatever pleases him.
4But their idols are silver and gold, made by the hands of men.
5They have mouths, but cannot speak, eyes, but they cannot see;
6they have ears, but cannot hear, noses, but they cannot smell;
7they have hands, but cannot feel, feet, but they cannot walk; nor can they utter a sound with their throats.
8Those who make them will be like them, and so will all who trust in them.
9O house of Israel, trust in the Lord — he is their help and shield.
10O house of Aaron, trust in the Lord — he is their help and shield.
11You who fear him, trust in the Lord — he is their help and shield.
12The Lord remembers us and will bless us: He will bless the house of Israel, he will bless the house of Aaron,
13he will bless those who fear the Lord — small and great alike.
14May the Lord make you increase, both you and your children.
15May you be blessed by the Lord, the Maker of heaven and earth.
16The highest heavens belong to the Lord, but the earth he has given to man.
17It is not the dead who praise the Lord, those who go down to silence;
18it is we who extol the Lord, both now and forevermore. Praise the Lord.
1I love the Lord, for he heard my voice; he heard my cry for mercy.
2Because he turned his ear to me, I will call on him as long as I live.
3The cords of death entangled me, the anguish of the grave came upon me; I was overcome by trouble and sorrow.
4Then I called on the name of the Lord; “O Lord, save me!”
5The Lord is gracious and righteous; our God is full of compassion.
6The Lord protects the simplehearted; when I was in great need, he saved me.
7Be at rest once more, O my soul, for the Lord has been good to you.
8For you, O Lord, have delivered my soul from death, my eyes from tears, my feet from stumbling,
9that I may walk before the Lord in the land of the living.
10I believed; therefore I said, “I am greatly afflicted.”
12How can I repay the Lord for all his goodness to me?
13I will lift up the cup of salvation and call on the name of the Lord.
14I will fulfill my vows to the Lord in the presence of all his people.
15Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.
16O Lord, truly I am your servant; I am your servant, the son of your maidservant; you have freed me from my chains.
17I will sacrifice a thank offering to you and call on the name of the Lord.
18I will fulfill my vows to the Lord in the presence of all his people,
19in the courts of the house of the Lord — in your midst, O Jerusalem. Praise the Lord.
1Praise the Lord, all you nations; extol him, all you peoples.
2For great is his love toward us, and the faithfulness of the Lord endures forever. Praise the Lord.
1Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.
2Let Israel say: “His love endures forever.”
3Let the house of Aaron say: “His love endures forever.”
4Let those who fear the Lord say: “His love endures forever.”
5In my anguish I cried to the Lord, and he answered by setting me free.
6The Lord is with me; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?
7The Lord is with me; he is my helper. I will look in triumph on my enemies.
8It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man.
9It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in princes.
10All the nations surrounded me, but in the name of the Lord I cut them off.
11They surrounded me on every side, but in the name of the Lord I cut them off.
12They swarmed around me like bees, but they died out as quickly as burning thorns; in the name of the Lord I cut them off.
13I was pushed back and about to fall, but the Lord helped me.
14The Lord is my strength and my song; he has become my salvation.
15Shouts of joy and victory resound in the tents of the righteous: “The Lord’s right hand has done mighty things!
16The Lord’s right hand is lifted high; the Lord’s right hand has done mighty things!”
17I will not die but live, and will proclaim what the Lord has done.
18The Lord has chastened me severely, but he has not given me over to death.
19Open for me the gates of righteousness; I will enter and give thanks to the Lord.
20This is the gate of the Lord through with which the righteous may enter.
21I will give you thanks, for you answered me; you have become my salvation.
24This is the day the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.
25O Lord, save us; O Lord, grant us success.
26Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.
27The Lord is God, and he has made his light shine upon us.
28You are my God, and I will give you thanks; you are my God, and I will exalt you.
29Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever.
1Blessed are they whose ways are blameless, who walk according to the law of the Lord.
2Blessed are they who keep his statutes and seek him with all their heart.
3They do nothing wrong; they walk in his ways.
4You have laid down precepts that are to be fully obeyed.
5Oh, that my ways were steadfast in obeying your decrees!
6Then I would not be put to shame when I consider all your commands.
7I will praise you with an upright heart as I learn your righteous laws.
8I will obey your decrees; do not utterly forsake me.
9How can a young man keep his way pure? By living according to your word.
10I seek you with all my heart; do not let me stray from your commands.
11I have hidden your word in my heart that I might not sin against you.
12Praise be to you, O Lord; teach me your decrees.
13With my lips I recount all the laws that come from your mouth.
14I rejoice in following your statutes as one rejoices in great riches.
15I meditate on your precepts and consider your ways.
16I delight in your decrees; I will not neglect your word.
17Do good to your servant, and I will live; I will obey your word.

20My soul is consumed with longing for your laws at all times.
21You rebuke the arrogant, who are cursed and who stray from your commands.
22Remove from me scorn and contempt, for I keep your statutes.
23Though rulers sit together and slander me, your servant will meditate on your decrees.
24Your statutes are my delight; they are my counselors.
25I am laid low in the dust; preserve my life according to your word.
26I recounted my ways and you answered me; teach me your decrees.
27Let me understand the teaching of your precepts; then I will meditate on your wonders.
28My soul is weary with sorrow; strengthen me according to your word.
29Keep me from deceitful ways; be gracious to me through your law.
30I have chosen the way of truth; I have set my heart on your laws.
31I hold fast to your statutes, O Lord; do not let me be put to shame.
32I run in the path of your commands, for you have set my heart free.
33Teach me, O Lord, to follow your decrees; then I will keep them to the end.
34Give me understanding, and I will keep your law and obey it with all my heart.
35Direct me in the path of your commands, for there I find delight
36Turn my heart toward your statutes and not toward selfish gain.
37Turn my eyes away from worthless things; preserve my life according to your word.
38Fulfill your promise to your servant, so that you may be feared.
39Take away the disgrace I dread, for your laws are good.
40How I long for your precepts! Preserve my life in your righteousness.
41May your unfailing love come to me, O Lord, your salvation according to your promise;
42then I will answer the one who taunts me, for I trust in your word.
43Do not snatch the word of truth from my mouth, for I have put my hope in your laws.
44I will always obey your law, for ever and ever.
45I will walk about in freedom, for I have sought out your precepts.
46I will speak of your statutes before kings and will not be put to shame,
47for I delight in your commands because I love them.
48I lift up my hands to your commands, which I love, and I meditate on your decrees.
49Remember your word to your servant, for you have given me hope.
50My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life.
51The arrogant mock me without restraint, but I do not turn from your law.
52I remember your ancient laws, O Lord, and I find comfort in them.
53Indignation grips me because of the wicked, who have forsaken your law.
54Your decrees are the theme of my song wherever I lodge.
55In the night I remember your name, O Lord, and I will keep your law.
56This has been my practice: I obey your precepts.
57You are my portion, O Lord; I have promised to obey your words.

59I have considered my ways and have turned my steps to your statutes.
60I will hasten and not delay to obey your commands.

70Their hearts are callous and unfeeling, but I delight in your law.
71It was good for me to be afflicted so that I might learn your decrees.

83Though I am like a wineskin in the smoke, I do not forget your decrees.
84How long must your servant wait? When will you punish my persecutors?

105Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light for my path.
106I have taken an oath and confirmed it, that I will follow your righteous laws.
107I have suffered much; preserve my life, O Lord, according to your word.
108Accept, O Lord, the willing praise of my mouth, and teach me your laws.

118You reject all who stray from your decrees, for their deceitfulness is in vain.
119All the wicked of the earth you discard like dross; therefore I love your statutes.
