Dear Heavenly Father, I confess all occult sins of seeking from Satan, the help that should come only from You. I repent of all these sins of occultism, idolatry and any oath I may have made to any false gods and ask to be forgiven. I repent for seeking aid, knowledge, power or comfort from the kingdom of darkness. I repent and renounce those occult sins and idolatry that I cannot remember. I close all doors or openings in my life to all occult and psychic practices and spirits of darkness. I ask You, Heavenly Father, to seal them with the precious shed Blood of Jesus Christ, never to be opened again. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
I renounce ever signing my name over to Satan or having my name signed over to Satan or his human organizations. I announce that my name is written in the Lamb’s Book of Life. I renounce any ceremony where I may have been wed to Satan or Satan’s group, and I announce that I am the Bride of Christ. I renounce all satanic assignments, blood covenants, pacts and dedications that I made with Satan, his false church, or that were made for me. I announce that I am in Christ.
I reject and renounce all curses and assignments made for me or by me for the service of Satan. (Stop here and renounce any specific pacts remembered.) I trust only in the shed Blood of my Lord, Jesus Christ and what He accomplished on the cross. I look to the Holy Spirit for guidance. I renounce all guardians and surrogate parents assigned to me by satanists. I renounce all baptisms, rituals or teachings by satanists or his human instruments. I announce that I have been baptized into Christ Jesus and my identity is now in Christ. I renounce and reject all demons and familiar spirits attached to any part of me, by satanists or his human instruments. I reject all spirit guides assigned to me.
I announce that God is my Heavenly Father and the Holy Spirit is my guardian. By this, I am sealed until the day of my redemption. I accept only God’s assignment for me. In Jesus name. Amen.
“But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.”
~I Corinthians 15:17
NOTE: Soul ties are ungodly bonds formed between the souls of people for the purpose of control, manipulation or domination. This can be from sexual sins, adultery, controlling parents, pastors, friends, or other persons.
To be free, it is necessary to cut the cords of bondage or ties to the controlling person or group. Every individual is responsible for guarding their minds and yielding to Jesus Christ through His Word. You have the power, in Jesus’ name, to break these bonds. You also may have to move away from the reach of the controller.
(To be prayed out loud)
Dear Heavenly Father,
I come to You, in Jesus’ name, and acknowledge that You gave everyone a free will. I humbly repent for allowing any control or bondage in my life, and ask to be forgiven. I renounce allowing myself to be controlled or manipulated in any way. I loose myself from all control, soul bonding, bondage, slavery, or any spirits that have come from the controller, any sex partner in the past or by any person specifically (name of person).
I declare that Jesus has delivered me from bondage and I am a child of Light and the Bride of Christ. I now ask You, Lord Jesus, to set me free from these soul ties, soul bonds or cords of iniquity between and any sex partner of the past, or any other person or persons, specifically (name of person). I cancel and break this bonding and cords of iniquity permanently.
I ask You, Father, to apply the Blood of Jesus1 to where these cords were connected so they can never be reconnected. It is my desire to worship You, Heavenly Father, with all my body, soul and spirit. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
1 The blood of Jesus is applied to those who have received salvation (Hebrews 10:19); those who have faith in His all sufficient atonement.
NOTE: Curses are contracts or requests to evil power for injury or evil to befall someone or something. They can be spoken words, incantations, or prayers that invoke evil spirits to do their evil work. A curse is also a ban or censure over a person, place or thing. A curse cannot come upon a child of God who is resting on the Word of God and who walks in the righteousness of Christ. You have the power and authority through the Blood and name of Jesus to cancel any curses or spells that have been sent against you. Because of Calvary, the power of Satan has been broken. All demons have already been conquered in Christ. Liberation is not a result of how much one may struggle, pray or resist, but is because of Christ Jesus alone.
If you have never trusted Jesus as your personal Savior and want to receive eternal life, you may come to Him now. It is through His name that you can be delivered from the power of darkness and have all curses broken.
(To be prayed out loud)
Dear Heavenly Father, I come to You as Your child, born again, redeemed and washed in the Blood of Jesus. I declare that You, Jesus, have redeemed me from the curse of the law having become a curse for me. I proclaim that I am a partaker of the inheritance of the saints of God. I ask to be redeemed and cleansed from all curses that have come upon me from any occult, cultic, satanic or psychic source. I renounce and reject every way in which Satan may try to claim ownership of me. I declare that I am totally committed and completely signed over to my Lord Jesus Christ. I give thanks unto You, Father, for delivering me from all the powers of darkness and translating me into the kingdom of your dear Son. Amen.
Praying for those who are oppressed:
If you have been called upon to pray for someone who is under spiritual attack (and who has trusted in the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior), help them first to understand their victory is through the Blood of the Lamb and that the battle has already been won. Assure them that they have been identified with Christ Jesus in his death, burial, resurrection and ascension, and have authority in the name of Jesus to be set free from any evil oppressions.
The Rule of the Victor Prayer:
The “Rule of the Victor” prayer is an excellent warfare prayer that will stop and remove demons being sent against you or your counselee. This prayer was developed by the Rev. Leonard M. Anspach, Altoona, PA. This prayer is not intended to deal with personal demons present because of personal sins or generational curses in the family, but to knock out demonic spirits that are sent out by satanists.
STATEMENT OF RULE OF THE VICTOR
I exercise “Rule of the Victor” over all the regions that have set their will against (name of person) against those regions that have permitted spirits in or through their territory. I command that they be castrated from ever receiving power from darkness again. I require the immediate disbursement of all their funds from the kingdom of darkness in to the kingdom of light (all the spoils of war), the immediate destruction of all their books (magical art and sorcery), and the immediate reversal of all their schemes. Penalties applied. To the pit.
NOTE: Moral issues are often one of the easiest ways Satan gains entrance to our lives and body and gives him a right to attack and harass us. People often feel shame from breaking moral laws and because of this, they keep it a secret. Satan uses this secret shame against you in a powerful way. However, through faith in God’s Son, we are raised to new life in Christ Jesus. There is no sin that He did not atone for on the cross of Calvary.
(To be prayed out loud)
Dear Heavenly Father, You have told me in Romans 13:14 to put on the Lord Jesus Christ and make no provision for the flesh in regard to its lusts. I acknowledge that I have given in to the temptation to gratify the desires of my flesh. I understand that lust is saying, “I must have this at once.” Much of this battle is in my mind and thought life. Because of my loneliness and inner pain at times, I have entertained lustful fantasies in my mind and thoughts. This only increased the desire to gratify my flesh. I ask You, Father, to reveal to me any ways in which I have been disobedient and grieved the Holy Spirit.
Father, I come before your presence to acknowledge these sins that I might be freed from their bondage. I also ask you to reveal to me any other sins that come to my mind that I need to repent of. I now confess these sins to You and present my body a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable unto you. I renounce the lie that my body is dirty or unacceptable in any way because of my past sexual experiences. I now acknowledge through the Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ that I am forgiven, totally cleansed and accepted in Your sight. I choose to walk in newness of life through the Holy Spirit. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
NOTE: Sometimes we will become self-reliant and do things our way. In this condition, we will not experience righteousness, peace and joy. Also, this sets us up for spiritual attacks by the powers of darkness.
(To be prayed out loud)
Dear Heavenly Father, Your word says that a proud and arrogant attitude goes before stumbling. I know that You hate a proud or arrogant spirit. I want to please You, Father. I do not want to stumble or bring trouble on myself and others. I know at times, in action and attitude, I have had a proud spirit. Because of my woundedness, I believed I knew what was best for me. In the past, I tried to run my life by my own power and resources. I have looked to my own intellect, ability and strength to solve my problems. Jesus, I have not denied myself, picked up my cross daily and followed You. Your word tells me that it is not by might, nor by power, but by Your Spirit that the victory comes. I have opened the door and given Satan a place in my life because of this spirit of pride.
I now repent of this pride. I also renounce this effort to be self-sufficient and not trusting or coming to You, Heavenly Father. I now come to You, humbling myself, and put my trust in Your mercy and love. It is Your kindness that has led me to repentance. I now cancel all ground or openings to Satan in my life. I proclaim that I am covered with the Blood of Jesus.* I proclaim that you, Satan, have no part in me or power over me. I am a child of God and the Holy Spirit is living within me. I hereby affirm my dependence on You, Father and the work of Your Holy Spirit. I ask for Your guidance, wisdom and power to renew my mind and walk according to the Spirit. I ask for Your grace to help me abide in Jesus and live a life pleasing to You. In Jesus name. Amen.
NOTE: Forgiveness is not an emotion or feeling but is making a heart decision to let go of our right to make the offender pay. It is trusting God to deal with them in His way. Many times there is grieving to be done for the losses we have suffered. We may also need to forgive ourselves. Healing is a process and takes time. If there is a very traumatic memory, then it may be better to work through that memory first with a trusted counselor before you try to pray this prayer.
(To be prayed out loud)
Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you for Your love and kindness toward me. It is Your kindness that has led me to repentance, turning from all my sins and turning to you. I admit that I have allowed bitterness and resentment to grow in me. At times, I have forgotten this unforgiveness in my heart. This unforgiveness festers deep within me, at times beyond my conscious reach. This affects every aspect of my life and gives the enemy a right to torment me as stated in Matthew 18. I confess that this unforgiveness and bitterness is affecting my life and relationships today. Because of past hurts, I acknowledge the inability to love or trust others.
I understand that forgiveness is not an emotion but an act of my will. I now choose to exercise my will to forgive others as You, Father, have forgiven me. Dear Holy Spirit, I am asking You to bring to my remembrance anyone I need to forgive. I choose not to be ruled by a spirit of bitterness. I repent, forgive and release these people right now. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
NOTE: Make sure you remove all objects, tools or books of an occult nature from out of your house and burn them. (Acts 19:19) These books and objects can serve as focal points for demons who frequently attach themselves to them.
(To be prayed out loud)
Dear Heavenly Father, I ask you to reveal to me any cult or occult practices, false religions and false teachers, that I have been involved with, either knowingly or unknowingly.
I come before You to renounce all sinful practices and idolatry of seeking information, knowledge, healing, comfort, identity or power from any cult, occult, psychic or secret source. I ask you to cleanse me from any areas where I have allowed Satan to enter my life.

I renounce heavy metal music, satanic rock and black rock, drug abuse, watching occult movies, and all demonic role-play games, such as Dungeons and Dragons.
I renounce all secret oaths to pagan (false) gods as part of initiation ceremony into organizations, fraternities, sororities and other organizations, which practice these ceremonies.
I renounce and repent of ever taking part in any of these practices and/or esoteric or secret organizations. I ask You Father, to forgive and restore me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
“And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.” ~John 1:5
Dear Heavenly Father, Your Word tells me that you desire truth in my inner being. I know that facing this truth will lead me to liberation.
Jesus said, “Satan is the father of lies and a deceiver who is always trying to deceive me into believing lies.” I acknowledge that at times I have believed Satan’s lies and deceived myself. I pray that you will rebuke all deceiving spirits by virtue of the shed blood and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ.
By faith I have trusted in Christ as my Savior and I am now seated in the heavenlies with Him. (Ephesians 2:6)
I now reject this false life and choose to live in truth and in the light. I choose not to live in a myth or lie concerning my past. I now turn from this hidden life and close all these doorways.
I ask You to reveal to me the nature of these hidden hurts, pain, anger, vows, lies, or sins in my life. I now choose to face the truth and not live in denial. I acknowledge that I cannot do this in my own strength. I look to you Jesus for Your help in my healing and deliverance.
Dear Heavenly Father, I acknowledge there is only one true and living God who exists as the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. I recognize Christ Jesus as the Son of the Living God, the Word that became flesh and dwelt among us.
Jesus, You are worthy to receive glory, honor and power for You have created all things and in You, all things have their being. Father God, You have proved Your love for me by sending your Son to die for me. When I accepted You, Jesus, as my Savior, I was saved by Your grace. This was a gift from You and not the result of any works on my part. I acknowledge that all my sins are forgiven in Christ. All charges that were against me were nailed to the cross and canceled; therefore, the devil has nothing with which to accuse me. You redeemed me from the kingdom of darkness, translating me to Your kingdom. Now I am made right with God. With You, Lord Jesus, I can do all things. When I was saved, your Holy Spirit came to live within me. I am conformed to the image of Your Son.
Jesus, You came to set the captives free, those bound by sin, psychic or occult powers. I declare that it is God’s truths that will set me free. You have all authority in heaven and on earth. You have conquered and disarmed all evil principalities and powers. You made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross. Now I am seated with You in heavenly places. In You I have authority over Satan and all his demons. I stand strong in You, Lord Jesus, and resist Satan and all his evil schemes. I am covered and protected by Your precious Blood. Your spiritual weapons are mighty to tear down all strongholds of the enemy in my life. I renounce all counterfeit gifts and works of Satan in my life. I take my position in Christ and declare that You, Jesus, are my Lord and my God. I look only to You as my deliverer. You know all my special needs and concerns. I claim Your word which says, “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” I call on You now, Lord Jesus Christ, to set me free. In Jesus name. Amen.
