St. Joseph Terror of Demons Prayer

St. Joseph, Terror of Demons,

cast your solemn gaze upon the devil and all his minions, and protect us with your mighty staff.

You fled through the night to avoid the devil’s wicked designs, now with the power of God, smite the demons as they flee from you.

Grant special protection, we pray, for children, fathers, families and the dying.  

By God’s grace, no demon dare approach while you are near.  

So we beg of you, always be near us.

Amen

Why Saint Joseph Is Considered the Terror of Demons

Saint Joseph is considered the “Terror of Demons” due to his unparalleled purity, humility, and steadfast obedience to God, which made him a formidable spiritual protector.

As the earthly father of Jesus Christ and the chaste spouse of the Virgin Mary, Joseph’s role in the Holy Family placed him in direct opposition to the forces of evil. His unwavering faith and righteousness set him apart as a powerful intercessor against demonic influences.

The title “Terror of Demons” reflects the belief that demons fear his holiness and strength, recognizing his unique closeness to Jesus and Mary. Consequently, many Catholics invoke Saint Joseph’s protection and guidance in spiritual warfare, trusting in his ability to intercede powerfully on their behalf.
