Speakers use warfare prayers of deliverance to protect listeners from evil and deliver them from the influence of evil forces into the arms of the lord. Some common prayers include the "Anima Christi" and the "Breaking of Curses."
Authors crafted many of these prayers for use in different purposes and occasions, such as the "Prayer against Evil," which banishes evil forces from the speaker and all who listen to their proclamation. "The Breastplate of Saint Patrick" shields an individual against future evil and wrongdoings, guarding against both physical and spiritual harm. "Denouncing the Occult" denounces heretic practices and false worship.
