Saint Basil the Great’s Exorcism Prayers
Some of the most powerful prayers there are for exorcism are the prayers of Saint Basil the Great and especially his three prayers of interdiction. It is very difficult to find their text, especially in English, outside of specialized religious libraries. They are originally meant to be read by a priest to a victim of demonic attacks. The prayers banish evil entities and destroy black magic influence.
Saint Basil was born in 330 AD in Caesarea and is to this day one of the most revered fathers of the early Church. He served as a bishop of Caesarea and was highly esteem theologian. Basil was known for his care of the poor and underprivileged. Around his church, he built a hospital for the poor, workshops for the disabled, orphanage, school, etc. In his written works he stresses the complete equality of both genders, both in the image of God, endowed with the same honour and dignity, in perfect equality. Saint Basil received his formal education in Caesarea and after his baptism, he traveled to Palestine, Egypt, Syria, and Mesopotamia to study ascetics. He has left many writings and prayers.
This field has been created to offer instant complete protection and release of negative entities or the effects of dark magic, by carrying the essence of the three most powerful of St.Basil’s banishing prayers used for exorcism. Specifically, the name of Beelzebub (who is also known as Baal) is mentioned and banished along with his servants. If a daemon is using another person to lie and deceive you, through Saint Basil’s Prayer, this is stopped. There is a special mention of all types and modes of magic and daemonic attacks. Some of them are: When one is spoken to by a daemon during the night, or in a deep sleep, deceiving them into accepting agreements with them or in other ways, or making them feel and act in destructive and negative ways by inducing evil feelings or wrong thoughts in the person, threatening them or causing fears, creating and stimulating improper sexual attraction, or causing delusions, or daemons scaring them by appearing in a reptilian form or other forms, including as people, or even smoke or vapour, and many more.
Here follows a part of one of the prayers:
