Hold a rosary or St Michael Medalion or St. Beneduct Medalion

Say :

Crux sancta sit mihi lux / Non draco sit mihi dux
Vade retro satana / Numquam suade mihi vana
Sunt mala quae libas / Ipse venena bibas
In approximate translation:

"Let the Holy Cross be my light / Let not the dragon be my guide
Step back Satan / Never tempt me with vain things
What you offer me is evil / You drink the poison yourself!"

Origins and history of the charm ( from Wikipedia )
The verse Vade retro satana was probably inspired by a phrase said by Jesus to Peter in the Vulgate New Testament, Mark 8:33: vade retro me, satana ("Step back from me, Satan!").[7]

Venerable Leo DupontThere exact origin of the passage is not clear.[8] The passage came to general attention in 1647, when certain women who were persecuted for witchcraft declared that they had been unable to do harm where there was a cross, and the St. Michael's Benedictine Abbey in Metten was particularly exempt from their influence.[1] A search of the monastery turned up crosses painted on the walls with the formula's initials. The meaning of those letters remained a mystery for some time, until the complete verses were found in a manuscript dating to 1415 in the abbey's library,[9] next to an image of St. Benedict. The same formula was later found in an Austrian manuscript from the 14th century.[10]

Following its 1647 rediscovery, the formula was for a time considered a superstition, but soon the formula was struck and sold on talisman medals. In 1742 the formula received the approval of Pope Benedict XIV, and became part of the Roman Catholic ritual. The formula popularity grew considerably in the 19th century, mainy due to the efforts of Leo Dupont. According to H. C. Lea (1896), "As a suffices to wear [the medal] devoutly, but, if some special favor is desired, it is advisable on a Tuesday to say five Glorias, three Aves and then three more Glorias to secure the protection of St. Benedict."[11] The Vade Retro Satana remains part of the Roman Catholic ritual following the 20th century revision of the ritual and its final promulgation in 1999 via De exorcismis et supplicationibus quibusdam.[12]

Another prayer particulary good against Demonic opression

Prayer Against Demonic Influence
Almighty God, Who delivered Your people from the bondage of the adversary, and through Your Son cast down Satan like lightning, deliver me also from every influence of unclean spirits. Command Satan to depart far from me by the power of Your only begotten Son. Rescue me from demonic imaginings and darkness. Fill me with the light of the Holy Spirit that I may be guarded against all snares of crafty demons. Grant that an angel will always go before me and lead me to the path of righteousness all the days of my life, to the honor of Your glorious Name, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, now and forever. Amen.
