Welcome to the August edition of “Pray Away the LaVey.
It is vital that we become familiar with occult holidays so that we can pray and fast for the protection, release, and healing of people and children caught up in its dark web. There are all sorts of things going on in the world right now, but we cannot use these diversions as an excuse to forget about the real warfare going on underground and all around us.
If the idea of praying for Satanists, or praying against occult rituals and holidays overwhelms or frightens you, or you don’t know where to begin, check out Russ Dizdar’s Prayer Mapping course; or listen to Tom and Vicki’s prayer mapping episode HERE.
I pray that the information below will be a valuable resource in assisting you as you pray for the protection of our children, the salvation of those steeped in these traditions and bloodlines, and against the Enemy’s power that is unleashed in greater measure on these charged dates.
HIGH HOLY DAYS ON THE OCCULT CALENDAR – August 2023
The eighth month, late 11c., from Latin Augustus (mensis), sixth month of the later Roman calendar, renamed from Sextilis (literally “sixth”) in 8 B.C.E. to honor emperor Augustus Caesar, literally “Venerable Caesar” (see august (adj.), and compare Augustus). One of two months given new names to honor Roman leaders (July being the other), the Romans also gave new imperial names to September (Germanicus) and October (Domitian) but these did not stick.
In England, the name replaced native Weodmonað “weed month.” Traditionally the first month of autumn in Great Britain, the last of summer in the U.S.
