Sounds the same! But different!

I heard you speak about deprecatory and imprectory prayer on Jesus 911. I'm wondering if you could give me a definition of each and a little more explanation.  Thank you.


"An imprecatory prayer is one in which I command the demons to leave. A deprecatory prayer is one in which I petition Jesus, Our Lady to drive the demons out. If I have authority, I can pray an imprecatory prayer.If I don't then I should pray a deprecatory prayer" (Fr Ripperger; "Freedom through Christ - a Catholic approach to Liberation" p.130).
