The following is a prayer Jesus taught me to use to take people through deliverance (broken into five easy to understand steps)

All but steps three and four can be prayed silently in your heart so only you and Jesus knows what is being given to Him for you to be delivered from..  Steps three and four can be whispered rather said out aloud so only you God and Satan hears them being commanded.

This prayer can be said without the need of another to be there so that only you and Jesus knows what is being prayed.  However another person may be helpful to encourage you and read it out to you.

Lordship/Deliverance Prayer

We are told by the apostle James to:

Jas 4:7  Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

In other words give it to Jesus to be Lord of the situation or problem and Satan must leave that area Jesus is now Lord of when he is commanded to as he no longer has a right to be there in that area given to Jesus.  This is because it now belongs to The Kingdom of God and Satan cannot enter that Kingdom so has to leave when told too.

The following Lordship prayer has five parts.

We give what we desire to be delivered from to Jesus to be Lord of

We make certain we have nothing in our life stopping Jesus hearing this prayer For example:

Unforgiveness of yourself or another or not wanting to reconcile to another

A sin you will not give up. Any form of rebellion in your heart against Jesus will stop deliverance.

These stop God hearing your prayers until you do the only one thing he will hear, that of repenting of what is blocking the deliverances.

We then tell Satan to leave in Jesus' Name

We command healing and restoration in Jesus’ Name

We ask The Holy Spirit to fill us and replace the demons that have gone.

We then should thank God for our deliverance as Jesus is the only one who can deliver us.

The actual prayer

The Lord Jesus says in His Bible in 1 Pet 5:7, to give Him all your cares.  That which causes you worry, anxiety, stress, all the hurts of the past, which takes away your peace, the sin you cannot seem to defeat, wrong coping mechanisms like: smoking, drinking, gambling: all that causes you distress and/or lack of peace in your spirit.

Remember that these things are only between you and Jesus, so you do not need to say them out loud, but only need to quietly give them to Him your heart for Him alone to hear.

Step 1

So give to Jesus, quietly in your heart, anything that troubles you. You do not need to name the sin(s) but just the area the sin, weakness or problem in you which you desire Jesus to be Lord of. All you need to do is to agree to completely give it in your heart for Jesus to be Lord of.

Remember you give Jesus everything in the area so that things you do not know you have in that area or have done in that area are also given to Him along with anything associated with the area(s) you are giving Him.  You do not need to mention individual sins but areas the sins are in as long as you repent of any sin that surfaces after deliverance so that you no longer do them.

So give to Jesus (that is relevant) any:

Wrong attitudes toward God

Wrong attitudes toward others

Moral weaknesses you have

Sins or areas of sin you have trouble defeating

Loveless acts toward others

Circumstances or events you are anxious or concerned/worried about.

Wrong emotions, habits, attitudes, reasonings, values or wrong coping mechanisms you have

Wrong imaginations, understanding, knowledge and learning or ways of thinking,

Wrong worship and praise attitudes

Hurtful memories or trauma you have that cause you problems of any kind.

All relationships you have

Any betrothal (engagement)

All social activities

Any marriage, family and any problems in that area

All relationships



Fear of Authority

Fear of Failure

All others fears

Self-rejection and low self esteem

Any mental illness you may have whether or not you know about it

Any wrong soul ties

Any curses over yourself

Any wrong agreements or contracts or similar…whether or not you know you have made them

Past hurts, traumatic events and other events that have hurt you in any way

Anything, in you or that you have done that is, not of Jesus or His Kingdom of which He is not already Lord of. Whether or not you know they are there,

Anything The Holy Spirit tells you now to give to Him for Jesus to be Lord of and to make certain you have not missed anything.

Give Jesus also the causes and results of all these things as well as anything else associated with them in any way then pray as follows"

General Repentance

Lord, Jesus, I want you to be Lord of all my life. I give it to all You, as well as anything that stands between You and me, whether or not I know they are there. Show me these things Lord that separate us so I can deal with them as you desire me to deal with them. I want to do Your will in all I do Lord, and I ask You to help me to do this. I give it all to you Jesus, for You to be Lord of so that You are Lord of all I am.

Step 2

The Father in heaven says you are to forgive everyone who has hurt you in any way. If you deliberately do not forgive anyone who has hurt you, the Father in heaven cannot forgive your wrongs against Him. So you do not go to heaven (Matt 6:14-15).

You may need to pray as follows and in your heart name any people The Holy Spirit brings to your memory.

Jesus, I forgive all who have hurt me.

I also forgive myself for what I have done.

Lord! Help me to forgive those I have problems forgiving. So I can obey you fully.

Give any problems you have reconciling to another as this is usually caused by Unforgiveness or fear of man (or woman).

You may need to pray: as follows:

Lord Help me to reconcile to those I need to reconcile too and to do what I need to do this.

The lord requires you to try to reconcile but they may not be interest in reconciling.  As long as you have wholeheartedly tried to reconcile it does not matter of t he other person does not want to be reconciled.  It may be too dangerous to try but as long as you really desire to reconcile and are waiting for Jesus to make it possible you have satisfied God’s requirements in this area.

You may also need to repent of a sin you know you are doing as well as give it to Jesus to be Lord of.

You may need to pray in your heart:

Lord, show me what I need to repent of. I aks you to be Lord of it.

Then repent

Lord I repent of …[name the sin(s) or area(s)][, and I want to stop doing anything that I am doing that is wrong. Help me to do this so you can be completely Lord of my life.

You may need to give it as a new step 1 in this prayer before you go on.

Step 3

Now command Satan to leave and go to Jesus and to take all He did to you with him:

Satan I have given all these areas of my life to Jesus to be Lord of. So you must go from these areas in Jesus’ Name to the Throne of Judgement to be dealt with by Jesus. In Jesus' Name I command that you are, to take with you everything in, on or around me or that you have done to me at any time.

Demons do not manifest as they are fighting Jesus now in what you have just given to Jesus to be Lord of and not you so know they have no chance of winning so do not waste their energy.

Step 4

In accordance with the Will of God, in Jesus' Name I command healing of everything Satan did to me and In Jesus' Name 1 also command restoration of the sound mind as well as all else that Satan took from me in accordance with the will of Jesus for me.

Step 5

Holy Spirit please fill me completely, refresh me and anoint me freshly to serve Jesus as an obedient citizen of the Kingdom of God, and member of The Body of believers on earth.

Step 5 was also mentioned by Jesus to a lady who went to heaven. Its stops demons coming back into the soul in the areas they have been forced to leave.

The following prayer gives permission to Jesus to do whatever He needs to do for you without asking your permission and needs to be prayed only once or repeated only if The Holy Spirit says to do so:

Father, Lord Jesus, Holy Spirit, ministering angels.- I give you all permission to do anything you need to do too me or for me without the need to ask my permission to do these things.

Satan will try and convince you by placing thoughts or feelings in you or emotions you have that you have not been delivered.  Just give these to Jesus using the following five steps which form the basis of the prayer above.

The five steps in summary

Give the temptation, thought, feeling emotion to Jesus to be Lord of

Repent, forgive, reconcile

Cast out Satan

Command healing and restoration

Ask Holy Spirit to fill you completely

I have more information on these and deliverance on my web site

Why send them to The Throne of Judgement?

The Throne of Judgement has been set up by Jesus outside The Kingdom of God.  The Kingdom is holy and undefiled and Satan is defiled and unholy so cannot enter The kingdom.  So this Throne has been set up so Satan can approach Jesus.
