Pope Leo XIII 's Vision & Prayer Against Satan & his Apostate Host
#14
The intro / explanation to the prayer in the Angeles Missal (page 1796) reads:

Quote:PRAYER AGAINST SATAN AND THE REBELLIOUS ANGELS
PUBLISHED BY ORDER OF H.H. POPE LEO XIII
The Holy Father exhorts priests to say this prayer as often as possible, as a simple exorcism to curb the power of the devil and prevent him from doing harm. The faithful also may say it in their own name, for the same purpose, as any approved prayer. Its use is recommended whenever action of the devil is suspected, causing malice in men, violent temptations, and even storms and various calamities. It could even be used as a solemn exorcism (an official and public ceremony, in Latin), to expel the devil. It would then be said by a priest, in the name of the Church, and only with the Bishop's permission.

From this it looks like individuals can pray this prayer privately. Maybe I'll corner one our priests after mass Sunday and ask him about it.
