A Prayer of Deliverance
(From the book Prayers I, by Dr. Mary Craig)

Dear Lord Jesus,

I look to you as refuge, fortress, and strength. I confess that I am guilty of sin, iniquity, and transgression. I submit to you, God. I draw near to you that you may draw near to me. I cleanse my hands and purify my heart. I am miserable and mourn and weep. My laughter is turned into mourning and my joy into gloom. I humble myself in the presence of the Lord that He may exalt me. I repent of my sins The word is near me, in my mouth and in my heart. I confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead. Forgive me now, and cleanse me with Your blood.

I give myself to you, dear Jesus, my body, soul, and spirit. You are my Lord, my Savior, my Master, my Deliverer. Thank you, Jesus, for saving my soul.

Today I ask You to completely cleanse me, my body, mind, will, and emotions. Deliver me, Lord, from any stronghold satan may have in my life, whether of my sins or those of my ancestors or of whatever cause. Deliver me from the tormentors, Lord, that afflict me, because I still need to forgive those who have hurt me.

I lay down all resentment, bitterness, and malice, and I forgive __________________ (during this time allow and ask the Holy Spirit to bring names and situations to your mind). I release them from my judgment. I release you, God, from my judgment. I accept and receive forgiveness. I lay down any pride and self-hatred, and accept Your acceptance of me in Christ.

Dear Jesus, I want to be sure that satan's power over me and my family line is completely destroyed. I now renounce for myself and for my ancestors all dealings with occult powers, in any form, and I break all cords of the past, back 12 generations. I renounce all satanic involvement, including but not limited to: witchcraft, sorcery, astrology, horoscopes, ouija boards, fortune telling, palm reading, seances, necromancy, ESP, levitation, transcendental mediation, hypnosis, soul travel, tea leaf reading, automatic handwriting, martial arts, numerology, the pendulum, water-witching, spirit guides, tarot cards, curses, charms, fetishes, psychic powers, and all psychic healing.

I renounce every cult or religion that denies the blood of Christ, or the divinity of Christ, or the humanity of Christ. I renounce all satanic involvement, including but not limited to: books, television shows, movies, music, magazines, and games that glorify occult practices or experiences or that are perversions of the truth (including sexual sins and practices). I renounce free masonry and brotherhood or sisterhood organizations that are perversions of truth.

Through the blood of Jesus, I break all ungodly soul ties and bondages.

I renounce satan and all his works. I declare that satan has no place in me, and no power / authority over me. Through the blood of Jesus I loose myself from satan and his dominion in the Name of Jesus. I command every evil spirit to leave me, right now, in Jesus' Name. I command you to leave without doing harm and to go where Jesus Christ tells you to go.

As my Deliverer, Lord, you know all my problems, all the things that bind, torment, defile, harass and oppress me. Any thing and every thing not the Holy Spirit of God, leave me now. GO where Jesus tells you to go.

I confess that my body is a temple for the Holy Spirit, redeemed, cleansed, justified, sanctified, by the blood of Jesus.

I renounce, break, and loose myself and my family from all psychic heredity, psychic powers, bonds of physical or mental illness, or curses, upon me or my family line, as the result of sin, transgressions, iniquities, occult, or psychic involvements of myself, my parents, my ancestors. I break and cancel all evil curses, charms, vexes, hexes, spells, jinxes, bewitchments, witchcraft, guilt, intimidation, domination, or sorcery put upon me from any person or persons or from any occult source. I refuse to be under the control or influence of anything or anyone other than to be led by the Holy Spirit of God and to walk in the Spirit.

Thank you, Jesus, for setting me free.

Holy Father in Heaven, in the Name of Jesus, I ask that you fill every vacant place with the promised Holy Spirit, with your Word, your redemption, your peace, your presence. I ask that you bring healing and restoration to my body and to my soul, clearing out any debris and cleaning up any remaining damage. Father, give me the promised Holy Spirit. May your Holy Spirit be poured out upon me with power. May you clothe me with power from on high. May I grow in grace. May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, the love of You, Father, and the fellowship / communion of the Holy Spirit be with me, as you have promised to never leave me or forsake me.

I give you praise for who You are. You are Light and Love and Life and are with me. You are my righteousness, the only righteous One, my peace, my sanctifier, my healer, my provider, my banner of victory, my shepherd, my shield, my strength, my guide, the One who gives me life.

Thank you.

In the Name of Jesus, amen.
