Catholic Handbook of Deliverance Prayers

We have attended a talk by Fr. Jocis Syquia, the director of Archdiocese of Manila - Office of Exorcism. Ever since, we have included in our nightly prayers the following:
Prayer for Protection
Lord Jesus, I ask you to protect my family (state the names of each member) from sickness, from all harm and from accidents. If any of us has been subjected to any curses, hexes or spells, I declare these curses, hexes or spells null and void in the name of Jesus Christ. If any evil spirits have been sent against us, I decommission you in the name of Jesus Christ and I send you to Jesus to deal with as He will. Then Lord, I ask your holy angels to guard and protect all of us. Amen. 
Entrustment of the Home to Mary, Help of Christians 
Most Holy Virgin Mary, appointed by God to be the Help of Christians, we choose you as the Mother and Protectress of our home.
We ask you to favor us with your powerful protection. Preserve our home from every danger; from fire, flood, lightning, storms, earthquakes, thieves, vandals, and from every other danger. 
Bless us, protect us, defend us, keep us as your own, all the people who dwell in this home. Protect them from all accidents and misfortunes, but above all obtain from them the most important grace of avoiding sin. 
Mary, Help of Christianspray for all those who live in this home which is entrusted to you.
Prayer to St. Micahel 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.
These are taken from the internet but are also found in the book of Fr. Jocis. Hope you can get a copy for your homes.  It would be a great gift to give family and friends.

praying that they will grow up prayerful and God-centered
