Prayer of Deliverance:
Gracious Heavenly Father, in Jesus Christ’s name, I approach Your throne of grace and ask for your help in my time of need. (Confess here to any known sin or open door that might have led to your situation, and ask for forgiveness and renounce it, or if you are standing but are under satanic attack, state the attack). Protect me and deliver me, Lord, from every evil spirit and evil influence afflicting my life. I humbly ask and seek your presence, and pray for the wisdom and power of your Holy Spirit, and the presence of your holy angels to help in this matter. Illuminate my mind with the truth of my situation, and teach me to war against this evil intrusion, Lord, and lead me into the victory of your precious Son, Christ Jesus, Whose blood was shed for me, over 2000 years ago, to deliver and set me free from the power of sin, Satan and his kingdom of darkness.
I plead the blood of Jesus Christ on my life right now, for I am redeemed, justified, cleansed and sanctified by the shed blood of Jesus Christ. I place my trust wholly in You Lord, in your grace and love. It is You, Lord, Who always causes us to triumph in Christ Jesus (2 Cor. 2:14), for your Word says, “you are able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.” (Eph. 3:20). I choose to stand on your Truth in faith Lord, strengthen me where I am weak and let my lips praise you all the days of my life. I confess and believe, Heavenly Father, that all of Your promises in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us. Thank you and Amen.
Stand against the enemy with God’s full armor in place: God’s spiritual armor prepares you for spiritual warfare
Remember to include any revelation received from God, such as name of an entity, or stronghold etc., if so led. Say this prayer as often as needed and for however long it takes (days, weeks or months), don’t get discouraged and never give up. The Lord will lead!
Confront the enemy: Here is an example:
I break the power of every principality, powers, rulers of darkness and wicked spirits in my life, and every evil work directed against me in the Name of Jesus Christ! I plead the blood of Jesus Christ over my life to protect me from the evil one, and I claim the power of the Holy Spirit over all of the kingdom of darkness, for greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world. Satan, you and your minions have no authority in my life for I belong to the Lord, Jesus Christ, and I am seated with Him in the heavenlies. I command you, evil spirit (s), to let go and leave my life (or body), and I bind you from hurting anyone in the process, in the name of Jesus Christ, GO!

When consecrating the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, John Paul II left us a powerful prayer.
The year was 1984 and St. John Paul II was presiding at a Mass for Families during the Extraordinary Jubilee Year of Redemption. He was faced with a world in turmoil (nearing the end of the Cold War), and recognized the need to beseech God’s help in delivering the world from evil.
The occasion was highlighted by the presence of the original statue of Our Lady of Fatima in Rome, standing prominently next to the main altar. During the Mass John Paul II led those present in a “Consecration of All Individuals and Peoples of the World to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.” He said, “I will today entrust to her Immaculate Heart—in spiritual union with all the bishops of the world—all individuals and peoples, repeating in substance the act that I made at Fátima on May 13, 1982.”
At the end of the consecration John Paul II said a powerful prayer that asks God to deliver us from the many faces of evil. It is a prayer that retains its relevance as evil continues to plague our world.
Immaculate Heart! Help us to conquer the menace of evil, which so easily takes root in the hearts of the people of today, and whose immeasurable effects already weigh down upon our modern world and seem to block the paths towards the future!
From famine and war, deliver us.
From nuclear war, from incalculable self-destruction, from every kind of war, deliver us.
From sins against the life of man from its very beginning, deliver us.
From hatred and from the demeaning of the dignity of the children of God, deliver us.
From every kind of injustice in the life of society, both national and international, deliver us.
From readiness to trample on the commandments of God, deliver us.
From attempts to stifle in human hearts the very truth of God, deliver us.
From the loss of awareness of good and evil, deliver us.
From sins against the Holy Spirit, deliver us, deliver us.
Accept, O Mother of Christ, this cry laden with the sufferings of all individual human beings, laden with the sufferings of whole societies.
Help us with the power of the Holy Spirit to conquer all sin: individual sin and the “sin of the world,” sin in all its manifestations.
Let there be revealed, once more, in the history of the world the infinite saving power of the Redemption: the power of merciful Love! May it put a stop to evil! May it transform consciences! May your Immaculate Heart reveal for all the light of Hope!
Lord Jesus, You promised in Your Word that “I can seek You and find You when I search for You with all my heart!” (Jer.29:13) So Lord, I now cry out to You with a WHOLE heart, and I ask You to please hear my prayer and give me the deliverance I seek!

Lord, You told us to “submit ourselves to God, resist the devil, and he will flee from us!” Jesus, I now submit myself to You!

I can’t do it myself, I can’t get the victory, without YOU I can do NOTHING!

I just want YOU, Jesus!
I rebuke and resist you, Devil, in Jesus’ Name! God DAMN you, Satan, get out of here! I’m the LORD’S child, I belong solely to Him! There’s NO foothold for you here, in Jesus’ name!

Lord Jesus, You said that when the enemy comes in like a flood, the Spirit of God will raise a standard against him! (Isa.59:19) But You also said that we should do OUR part. You said, “RESIST the Enemy and he shall flee from thee!” (Jam.4:7) I’m not just being passive, Lord, expecting YOU to do it all — I am here and now, “FIGHTING the good fight of faith! — Resisting my adversary the Devil!” And trusting YOU, Lord Jesus, to deliver me from him and all of his devices!-1Tim.6:12; 1Pet.5:9.
Give the victory, Lord, in Jesus’ Name! I REBUKE you, Satan! God DAMN you, Devil, in the Name of Jesus!

I Know that you are the Victor, Jesus! “For this purpose was the Son of God manifested, that He might DESTROY the works of the Devil!” (1Jn.3:8), and You have defeated the Devil ALREADY! Satan TREMBLES when he sees even the WEAKEST saint upon his knees! — So even though I’m weak and helpless and have no power of my own, “Greater are You (Jesus) within me than he (Satan) which is within the World.” — 1Jn.4:4. I have YOU, Jesus, so I ask YOU to rebuke and drive away the God-damned Devil and any and all of his imps!
God damn you little devils in Jesus’ Name! I DEFEAT you in the Name of Jesus Christ! I CURSE you in the Name of Jesus Christ! I RESIST you in the Name of Jesus Christ! In Jesus’ name I COMMAND you to depart, in the Name of JESUS I COMMAND you to depart, I resist you in the Name of Jesus!
I rebuke you, evil spirits, whoever or whatever you are, in Jesus’ name! In the Name of Jesus! “The Lord shall DELIVER me from EVERY evil work, and will preserve me unto His Heavenly Kingdom! And He Who hath begun a good work in me will PERFORM it until the day of Jesus Christ!” (2Tim.4:18; Phil.1:6) — So get OUT of here, Devil! I don’t want ANYTHING to do with you, and I RESIST you, Satan, in Jesus’ name!
Lord Jesus, deliver me from every device of the Devil, from all of his evil machinations! For Thou, O Lord, hast NOT given me a spirit of fear, but of POWER and of LOVE and of a SOUND MIND! For perfect love casts out ALL fear, so I ask You to cast out and remove EVERY influence of the Devil, in Jesus’ name! Amen! (2Tim.1:7; 1Jn.4:18)

Please help me and deliver me, Lord Jesus! — I’m so weak, but I call unto You and ask YOU to be strong IN and FOR me! “For when I am weak, then am I strong, for YOUR strength is made perfect in my weakness! For we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of GOD and not of us!” — 2Cor.12.9:10; 4:7. Show THY power, Lord, Thy excellency and Thy strength, in Jesus’ name!
Help me to hold back nothing from Thee, nothing in reserve, nothing which is displeasing to Thee or distasteful in Thy sight! — Help there to be nothing which is unrepented of or unyielded!

Jesus, I want to be willing and yielded, because You can only fill EMPTY vessels that are thirsty for the Water of Life, for Your Spirit!

Help me, Jesus!
And if there are any bad spirits or evil influences from my past life, I resist and rebuke them in the Name of Jesus Christ! DELIVER me, Lord Jesus!

Curse those that curse me, Lord Jesus, and turn their curses upon their OWN heads! (Psa.70:3) Protect me and DELIVER me from their evil influence, from their bitterness, from their hate, from their curses! — And if there is anyone who has died and passed into the Spirit World who is attacking or fighting or hindering me, I resist them and curse them and rebuke them and BIND them in Jesus’ name, amen! — Send any such wicked spirits to HELL where they belong, Lord, in Jesus’ name!

Deliver me, Lord, from all of the Devil’s doubts and fears and lies, and help me to TRUST in You with ALL of my heart! Hallelujah!
Deliver me also from pride and self-righteousness, Lord! I resist and rebuke any demons of pride, in Jesus’ name! You said, “Let not a man think more highly of himself than he OUGHT to think” (Rom.12:3), not to be lifted up in pride as a novice, and You warned us that pride comes before a fall! So Jesus, please DELIVER me from the horrible besetting sin of pride, so I can be useful to You and Your Kingdom! — A humble, willing, yielded, obedient servant and tool in Your hands!
Help me, Lord Jesus, not to be rebellious and stubborn and self-willed, like the horse or like the mule, which have no understanding, which have to be turned about by bit and bridle, and even then they kick against the goads and the pricks and the conviction of Thy Holy Spirit! (Psa.32:9) Help me, Lord, to surrender my ALL to You!

Help me, Lord, not to surrender one inch of the victory You have for me to the Devil, not one inch of Thy blessing! Help me to lean on You and look to You for help, to trust You for COMPLETE deliverance, Lord, for Thy glory and for Thy name’s sake and Thy Word’s sake!
Thank You Jesus for these battles which are making me strong! Thank You for the opportunities You have given me to get real close to You, Lord, to get desperate with You and to lean on You when I see that I can’t do it. The battles are greater than I am, Lord, but YOU are greater than they are!
I know you have the victory for me, Jesus, and that as I surrender to Thee, the Enemy can’t have the victory, he can’t have me or my usefulness or ANYTHING about me, ANY part of me, because YOU are standing there, Lord Jesus, just like You told Peter, and PRAYING for me that my faith fail not! (Lk.22:31,32) — You’re strengthening me so that I in turn can strengthen others, and comfort others with the comfort wherewith I have been comforted (2Cor.1:4), thank You Jesus!

I ask you, Lord Jesus, for a “renewing of the Holy Ghost!” (Tit.3:5) Please refill me now with Thy Spirit of Love, Thy Holy Spirit, Thy mighty power that can completely burn out all of the Devil’s old circuitry, and rewire my mind and heart so I can be truly “renewed in the spirit of my mind!” (Eph.4:23) I can’t change or become a new creature by my OWN power or will, but I know YOU can do it! “Not by my might, nor by my power, but by Thy Spirit, Lord!” (Zec.4:6) — So please fill me to overflowing with Your Holy Spirit right NOW, in Jesus’ name I ask!
“If Thou, Lord, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who shall stand? But there is FORGIVENESS with Thee, that Thou mayest be feared!” (Psa.130:3,4) — Thank You for Your forgiveness and Your mercy to me, Jesus, for hearing my prayer and continuing to show me Thy mercy!
“Hear my cry, O God; and attend unto my prayer! From the end of the Earth will I cry unto Thee. When my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the Rock that is higher than I! For Thou hast been a SHELTER to me, and a STRONG TOWER from the Enemy! I will abide in Thy tabernacle FOREVER: I will trust in the covert of Thy wings!” (Psa.61:1-4)
Thank You Lord that “You have not dealt with us after our sins, nor rewarded us according to our iniquities. For as the Heaven is high above the Earth, so great is Thy mercy toward them that fear Thee. As far as the East is from the West, so far have You removed our transgressions from us. Like as a father pitieth his children, so You pity them that fear You. For You KNOW our frame; You remember that we are dust!”-Thank You Jesus for Your mercies! — Psa.103:10-14.
Thank You Lord for Thy Words to cleanse and heal us! You said, “You sent Your WORD and HEALED them, and DELIVERED them from their destructions!” (Psa.107:20) Thank You Lord for Thy WORD and its power which frees us from the snares of the Enemy!
I know that Thou art the Victor, Jesus, and I cannot lose as long as I lean upon Thee! As long as I keep FIGHTING, it is IMPOSSIBLE to lose! So help me, Lord, not to give up, not to quit, but to keep fighting and keep winning greater victories for Thy glory! — In Jesus’ name!
Help me, Lord, not to give up the fight, not to give up the battle, especially when it gets hot, Lord, and the Enemy’s doing his best to stop me and discourage me and depress me and cause me to quit! That’s exactly what he WANTS me to do, so help me to RESIST him and to “FIGHT the good FIGHT of faith, lay hold on Eternal Life”, and follow Thee till the END! — 1Tim.6:12.
“Did we in our own strength confide, our striving would be losing! Were not the right Man on our side, the Man of God’s Own choosing! — Dost ask Who this may be? Christ JESUS, it is HE! Lord Sabbaoth, His name, from age to age the same, and HE must WIN the battle!”
. I cannot strive and trust in my own strength — I must look to YOU, Lord, and YOU must win the battle! So help me to TRUST You, to keep my heart right with You and to follow You closer than ever before, in Jesus’ name! Keep me CLOSE to You, Lord, in Your Will, obedient, following moment by moment! Every moment keep my HEART right with You, Jesus, my MOTIVES right, my WILL right and EVERYTHING right with You! Hallelujah!
“Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me and know my thoughts: and see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting! Who can understand his errors?-Cleanse thou me from SECRET faults. Keep back Thy servant also from presumptuous sins; let them NOT have dominion over me: Then shall I be upright, and I shall be innocent from the great transgression. And let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in THY sight, O Lord, my strength and my Redeemer!” (Psa.139:23,24; 19:12-14) — In Jesus’ name, amen!
Remember, the Devil really hates to lose ground, and once he has lost any territory, he often attempts to sneak back in and try to regain it. So KEEP PRAYING and TRUSTING the Lord to PROTECT you and DELIVER you and give the COMPLETE VICTORY you’ve asked Him for! — And He WILL! — If you KEEP FIGHTING!
Don’t be like the man whose house was swept and garnished after the evil spirit was cast out! — He didn’t keep PROGRESSING from there, he didn’t FILL it up with the HOLY SPIRIT and the WORD and something BETTER and get busy serving and doing good works for the Lord. So the evil spirit brought back MORE evil spirits even worse than himself, and they entered into the man again because he was empty and not filled with the Lord and the Word and the Lord’s Work! — And “his LAST state was WORSE than the first!” — Mat.12:43-45.
He didn’t move in the demon’s Arch-Enemy, the Holy Spirit, to fill up his house and take over to keep out the unwanted intruders! — So for God’s sake and YOUR sake, fill your mind and heart with the WORD of God, and you won’t have room for the Devil’s darkness! Fill your mind with the Light of God’s Word and the darkness will flee of itself! — Amen? — Keep FIGHTING, and the Enemy’ll keep FLEEING!
THE ol’ Devil can’t resist Scripture, the Word, that’s the most powerful weapon you’ve got! — So quote it out loud, sing it, shout it and praise and thank the Lord for all His goodness! Then get BUSY WORKING for the Lord and helping OTHERS! Idleness is the Devil’s workshop! So defeat and drive him away by quoting Scripture, by praising the Lord and by good, positive, active WORK for Jesus!
And don’t forget, no matter how you feel after a prayer of deliverance, it doesn’t really make any difference! You have to keep BELIEVING and PRAISING and THANKING the Lord whether you FEEL delivered or not!-Because your praise is a sign that you really believe the Lord has given you the victory! — Praise is the voice of FAITH! — And “FAITH is the VICTORY that overcometh the World, and without FAITH it is impossible to please Him!” (1Jn.5:4; Heb.11:6) So take the victory that the Lord’s given you by faith, thank Him for it by faith, and then WALK by faith! (2Cor.5:7) God bless and keep you fighting and going on to greater victories for Jesus! — In Jesus’ name, amen!
