Prayers and Disposing Cursed Items

This can be done by a priest or lay faithful.

 1. Bless the object with Holy Water, saying: 

In the name of the + Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Amen. 

2. Cut the unholy ties links and bondages between the object and evil sources and spirits through the Prayer of Breaking of Unholy Ties. 

 In the Name of + Jesus, I break any unholy ties, links, relationships, and bondages between _____(name the object) and all evils sources and spirits. (3x)  

And I command all spirits associated with these unholy ties, links, bondages to go immediately and directly to the foot of the cross of the Lord Jesus. 

3. Pray the following prayer over the item (If married, pray this together with your spouse if possible):  

Father in heaven, we ask You to bind and cast away from me (us) and my (our) entire family and all those who have come into contact with these materials any demonic entities that may have been attached to these materials. We plead the blood of Jesus over these materials and take back any ground the Evil One may have snatched from me (us) because of the presence of these materials in my (our) home. Strengthen, O Lord, the hedge of protection around me (each of us) and my (our) family. Bless me (us) and my (our) family, O Lord. Help us to love You more. I (we) also ask that You be with the person who gave me (us) these materials and free them from any bondage. Help them to understand Your ways and bless them.  I (We) ask these things with the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God, blessed Apostles Peter and Paul, Blessed Archangels Sts. Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael, St. Joseph, St. Nicholas, St. Dominic, and NN. (Patron Saint/s), my (our) Guardian Angel(s), and all the Saints and Angels of Heaven, and powerful in the Holy and Mighty name of Your Son, Jesus + Christ, who name causes hell to tremble. Amen.  

4. Then destroy the object so that it no  longer resembles what it was. If it can be burned, then burn it. If it is glass, break it up into pieces. If it is metal break it in half if possible or other damage it with a hammer perhaps. If it is made of wood, saw it in two, and if of some other material, rip it apart into small pieces, take it apart or damage it as best you can. If there is no way to destroy it, then tie a blessed palm branch on it, or a blessed St. Benedict on it.

5. If burying the object is possible, dig a hole in the ground and place the remains of the object in the hole.  Sprinkle the remains with holy Water once more. Then tie or place a blessed St. Benedict medal on top of the remains if not already done in step 4.  Fill the hole burying the remains of the object. If the item is biodegradable and will not pollute, discarding it in a running river or stream may also be done. 

6. With the object buried (or discarded in a river or stream), bless yourself with Holy Water and the Sign of the Cross, say an Our Father, and three Hail Marys.  

Sign of the Cross Prayer 

In the Name of the Father, + and of the Son + and of the Holy + Spirit +. Amen. 

Our Father

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Hail Mary  (thrice or 3x) 

Hail Mary, 
Full of Grace, 
The Lord is with thee. 
Blessed art thou among women, 
and blessed is the fruit
of thy womb, Jesus. 
Holy Mary, 
Mother of God, 
pray for us sinners now, 
and at the hour of our death. Amen.

7. Pray the following prayer to break any curses that may have attached to you by possessing this object (if married, each spouse is to pray this prayer separately):

Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael, of the Blessed Apostles Peter and Paul, St. Nicholas, and St. Dominic, NN. (Patron Saint/s), my Guardian Angel and all the Saints, and powerful in the holy authority of His Precious and Wondrous Name, I ask, O Lord God, that You break and dissolve any and all curses, hexes, spells, seals, satanic vows and pacts, spiritual bondings and soul ties with satanic forces, evil wishes, evil desires, hereditary seals, snares, traps, lies, obstacles, deceptions, diversions, spiritual influences, and every dysfunction and disease from any source whatsoever, that have been placed upon me. Father in Heaven, please rebuke these evil spirits and their effects and cast them away from me so that I may continue to do Your Will and fulfill the mission You have for us to Your Greater Glory.

Thank You, Father, for hearing my (our) prayer. I (We) praise Your Holy Name and worship You and Love You. Thank You for the wisdom and light of Your Holy Spirit. Thank You for enabling me (us) through Your Holy Spirit to be aggressive against the works of the enemy. Thank You for Your Hope that takes away discouragement; thank You for ongoing victory. “...in all of these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us” (Romans 8:37). Father, I (we) now place my (our) enemies into Your hands. Look with mercy upon them, and do not hold their sins against them. Anyone who has cursed me (us), I (we) now bless. Anyone who has hurt me (us), I (we) now forgive. For those who have persecuted me (us), I (we) now pray:

Our Father

Our Father, Who art in heaven, hallowed be Thy name; Thy kingdom come; Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread; and forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

Hail Mary

Full of Grace, 
The Lord is with thee.

pray for us sinners now, 
and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Glory Be

Glory be to the Father and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

O My Sweet Jesus, forgive us our sins and save us from the fires of Hell. Lead all souls to Heaven, and help especially those who are most in need of Your Mercy. 

Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel

St. Michael the Archangel, 

defend us in battle. 
Be our defense against the wickedness and snares of the Devil. 
May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, 
and do thou, 
O Prince of the heavenly hosts, 
by the power of God, 
thrust into hell Satan, 
and all the evil spirits, 
who prowl about the world 
seeking the ruin of souls.

Amen

Michael, Gabriel and Raphael, of the Blessed Apostles Peter and Paul, St. Nicholas, St. Dominic, NN. (Patron Saint/s)  my Guardian Angel and all the Saints, and Angels in Heaven, and powerful in the holy authority of His name, I cancel all ground that evil spirits have gained in my life and in the lives of my family through my willful involvement in sin (or, have gained by my ownership of ______ [name object]). I reclaim that ground and my life for Christ.

R. Amen.

9. If sin was committed (in using the object), then confess that in the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
