Have you ever had a problem with mice? Or maybe cockroaches? Ants? Whatever pest has invaded your home, the effects can be more than annoying.
These creatures give new meaning to “be fruitful and multiply.” And they seem to outsmart us in both imagination and perseverance.
Happily, the Church recognizes your pain and in her wisdom, has provided a “Deprecatory Blessing Against Pests” that can be prayed by a priest. So when the pests won’t seem to go away, call the exterminator … and the priest.
Cockroaches Biblical Meaning
The priest vests in surplice and purple stole, and coming to the field or place infested with these creatures, says:
Antiphon: Arise, Lord, help us; and deliver us for your kindness’ sake.
Ps 43.1: O God, our ears have heard, our fathers have declared to us.
All: Glory be to the Father ….
P: As it was in the beginning …
All: Arise, Lord, help us; and deliver us for your kindness’ sake.
P: Our help is in the name of the Lord.
All: Who made heaven and earth.
P: Lord, heed my prayer.
All: And let my cry be heard by you.
P: The Lord be with you.
All: And with your spirit.
Let us pray.
We entreat you, Lord, be pleased to hear our prayers; and even though we rightly deserve, on account of our sins, this plague of mice (or locusts, worms, etc.), yet mercifully deliver us for your kindness’ sake. Let this plague be expelled by your power, and our land and fields be left fertile, so that all it produces redound to your glory and serve our necessities; through Christ our Lord.
Let us pray.
Almighty everlasting God, the donor of all good things, and the most merciful pardoner of our sins; before whom all creatures bow down in adoration, those in heaven, on earth, and below the earth; preserve us sinners by your might, that whatever we undertake with trust in your protection may meet with success by your grace. And now as we utter a curse on these noxious pests, may they be cursed by you; as we seek to destroy them, may they be destroyed by you; as we seek to exterminate them, may they be exterminated by you; so that delivered from this plague by your goodness, we may freely offer thanks to your majesty; through Christ our Lord.
I cast out you noxious vermin, by God + the Father almighty, by Jesus + Christ, His only-begotten Son, and by the Holy + Spirit. May you speedily be banished from our land and fields, lingering here no longer, but passing on to places where you can do no harm. In the name of the almighty God and the entire heavenly court, as well as in the name of the holy Church of God, we pronounce a curse on you, that wherever you go you may be cursed, decreasing from day to day until you are obliterated. Let no remnant of you remain anywhere, except what might be necessary for the welfare and use of mankind. Be pleased to grant our request, you who are coming to judge both the living and the dead and the world by fire.
The places infested are sprinkled with holy water.

Prayers Against Evil Cockroaches
“……. For this purpose the son of man was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.” 1john 3:8b.
Kindly watch Evangelist Joshua powerful videos on YouTube
“What shall we then say to these things, If God be for us, who can be against us?. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.” Romans 8:31,37.
Today, we are looking at prayers against evil cockroaches. One might begin to wonder what cockroaches have got to do with the life of a man or how cockroaches affect the life or destiny of an individual. Let me enlighten you that the devil is the master of all manipulations and he manipulates whatever he can lay his hands upon to derail and destroy the lives of men and their destinies. As harmless as a cockroach can be, the devil can manipulate it or project evil into it and use it to harm a child of God. Why?, Because the devil knows that we are of the mind set that cockroaches are harmless and so we are ignorant of what he the devil can do with that little creature.
The devil can manipulate cockroaches to bite, infest, pollute and poison our food in the spiritual realm and the cockroaches come to do the same in the physical. The bites, infestation, pollution or poison can be the greatest evil a man can face to death, if care and proper discernment is not done. That is why the Bible admonishes us in 1peter 5:8 saying “ sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour”. So the journey of life and faith calls for absolute soberness and vigilance to know when the devil sends evil cockroaches to infest a believer’s life and destiny with diseases, these evil cockroaches can also pollute the believer and cause deadly diseases in the life and destiny of a child of God. These and many more of the manipulations of the devil using evil cockroaches against the destiny of believers must be met with fierce opposition and resistance, if believers are to make the most of their lives and destiny.
There is no agenda of the devil that doesn’t have a fierce and powerful resistance from the word of God. God, through His word has made adequate provision for the believer to dismantle every evil work of the devil and obtain victory, that is why He, in His infinite wisdom sent His only begotten son to manifest and destroy all the works of the devil, inclusive of that of evil cockroaches. And made the believer a joint heir with him, so that we might also receive that authority and power as stated in Like 10:19, to trample upon every evil cockroach and it’s works and by extension all the works of the devil and obtain our victory. Remember that victory has already been given to us on the cross of Calvary, in Roman 8:31 and 37, we have been made more than conquerors, it therefore means that every battle we face with the devil and his agents shall turnout victorious because God is with us and when God be for us, no evil cockroaches and the devil can stand in any place against us.
Believers must walk in this consciousness, but delegated power and authority is received on the altar of taking responsibility. The authority is released but we must earn an increase in it, so as to be able to stand against all opposition to the devil and evil cockroaches. Increasing in authority and power means we have to spend good time at the power room or the secret place of God. That secret place is the place of prayer and fasting with a heart absolutely glued to God and the assurance of His word. When we dwell here consistently, we prevail over every evil cockroach and works of the devil.
Prayer points have been outlined below to help the believer stand in the secret place and battle the devil out of his or her life and destiny, and also obtain victory and stand. And as you do this no evil cockroaches will ever find its way to your home, life and destiny, in the mighty name of Jesus.
