In every situation dealing with the demonic, one should first establish a solid foundation of prayer. Many deliverers/ exorcists, through no fault of their own, merely repeat the words of prayers in a mechanical way, because they have never learned or experienced anything different. Prayer said against a demon that is not from the heart has little or no effect. A prayer said sincerely, in humility with love and trust in God, is a scourge to the demon. Often, this is effective in a deliverance of a place, or person possessed.
