What is deliverance?

Deliverance is the ministry of removing the spiritual effects of Satan on a Christian.

Salvation removes you from the kingdom of Satan
Deliverance removes the spiritual effects of the kingdom of Satan from you.

It is a Lordship decision which gives an area to Jesus to be Lord of so that it becomes part of His Kingdom so that Satan has no right to stay and has to go when commanded in Jesus Name to do so.
You must make certain you do not have a hindrance to it such as a sin you will not repent of or unforgiveness of a person or lack of belief in deliverance or a lack of belief in the ability Jesus to delegate this authority to us.
The basic format for a deliverance prayer is as follows:

While our spirit is filled with the presence of The Holy Spirit the soul is not and must be given to Me to be Lord of.
Divine healing is a separate ministry which is why it is mentioned separately but at times both may occur together.

What is the basis of deliverance?

The basis of deliverance is found in JaJesuss 4:7

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

In other word give the area attacked to Jesus to be Lord of and part of My Kingdom and tell Satan to depart. Sin is forgiven at Calvary so does not need to be confessed. You just need to face that you have a weakness in that area.

This is why in the book of James Jesus said: (James 5:16)

Confess your faults (weaknesses) one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

This is also the basis of deliverance - the giving of weakness to Jesus for Him to be Lord of it then commanding Satan to leave that area as he can longer deal with these areas as they now belong to Jesus and not you. He has to fight Jesus for them or have you give him back lordship in these areas by doing what he suggests you do.
Jesus knows your sins and they were forgiven at Calvary so you do not need to confess them again which is why we are told to admit our weaknesses and not our sins in the book of James. Satan has blinded people to this so that in normal deliv
erance sins are confessed and individual demons cast out rather than all the demons in the area of weakness.
The Authority to do this ministry is found in Mark 16:17-18

Mar 16:17-18 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In My Name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.

The problems in modern bibles is that they imply this passage is not in the original codices so that we do not have authority over Satan.
Why would God edit out of His Bible the only weapon we really have against Satan. This alone cast doubts on the translations of modern bibles and this alone disqualifies them for use in ministry. What else has Satan had removed from them. If you believe scholars about 20% of the King James Bible has been removed in the new bibles.

Who can do deliverance?

Any Christian who believes Jesus is Lord of and believes what He said in The King James Bible.
You do ot need to understand why it occurs but only believe Jesus will do this if commanded in His Name with the right attitude toward what you are doing.
You cannot do deliverance if you believe modern bibles are the best translations as they do not believe that Mark 16:17-18 are really part of the bible and have been put in by man so imply it is not part of the original Bible. They were originally in but were removed before they were published.
If you do not believe any part of that Bible you cannot do deliverance because you really cannot say what else in The Bible is not right and Mark 16:17-18, the delegation for us to be able to do deliverance, may not be correct
Any sex or any age can do deliverance. Jesus made no qualifications except that He must be their Lord, believe in His authority over Satan and to exercise it.
If we had a part in the deliverance and not j ust declare it and guide the person then it would remove some of Jesus' Glory.
We are like heralds proclaiming the Will of The King all must obey.

What attitude is required for deliverance?

All must be done in God's quality of Love for the person undergoing deliverance and not for personal gain or recognition of any type.
Deliverance is the expression of God's Love toward a citizen of His Kingdom so must reflect His Love when it is done.
All shame, guilt and condemnation were removed at Calvary so deliverance should never result in anyone being delivered feeling these emotions. The Holy Spirit convicts of sin and righteousness so these may occur during deliverance.

Do you need to know anything about a person to do deliverance?

If you do it the way Jesus showed me then you do not need to need to know their name or anything about them.
This is because deliverance is between them and Jesus and the minister is only there to guide and encourage them in the Lordship prayer they say that is used by Jesus to deliver them. The person helping them may need to read the prayer to the person seeking deliverance and say the casting out prayers and all the person seeking deliverance has to do is agree in their heart with what is given to Jesus and the declarations against Satan.
But the person never need to say or admit anything except to tell of areas of weakness they have if necessary or things The Holy Spirit mentions which has not been covered in the prayer..

Why do you need to know anything about the person seeking deliverance?

Deliverance is really between Jesus and the person seeking it. You cannot repent or give things to Jesus on their behalf.
The deliverance minister is there only to encourage and guide them this prayer and is in fact not needed as the person can pray the prayers by themselves.
In this prayer the person seeking deliverance gives to Jesus things they desire Him to be Lord so that Satan has to fight Jesus for them and not you or the person praying. This is why demons do not manifest.
Satan will try to hinder or stop the deliverance session and it is this you may need to know more about spiritual warfare to defeat. After all deliiverance is a form of spiritual warfare against Satan.

The use of The Name of Jesus

Joh 14:13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. Joh 14:14 If ye shall ask any thing in my name, I will do it.

We can only ask or command in the Name of Jesus if we are certain it is His Will. And then only if it is to bring Glory to Jesus and through this to The Father
If it does not bring them Glory then it should not be used. When we preach or minister Jesus we should not be seen. Only He should be seen as well as how He affects the listeners as a result of the ministry or act ion.

The basis of the prayer

It is a Lordship prayer based on the person's position in The Kingdom of God as a child of The Father. This means that only Christians can really pray this prayer unless it is a person seeking to become a Christian and only then after committing their life to Christ as their Lord.
Whatever is given to Jesus to be Lord of Satan has to leave (James 4:7) so we give it to Jesus to be Lord of then tell Satan to leave in Jesus' Name and he has to go!
He is an enemy in the Kingdom of God and enemies are killed or removed and must go when told too.
He also has to fight Jesus to get back what we gave Jesus to be Lord of and not us and has to persuade us to give him back lordship of that area.

The part that changes

In the first step things are given to Jesus to be Lord of. We are told in James 5:16 to confess our weaknesses and not our sins so areas of weakness are given to Jesus to be Lord.
The causes, results and associated things that relate to that area are given to Jesus to be Lord of and do not need to be individually named as Jesus works in principles and not legalistic rendition of actual things or sins.
Parts added to the prayer which never change (Steps two to five) The step to remove hindrances to the deliverance prayer being heard The actual casting out of Satan

The command for healing and restoration

A request for The Holy Spirit to fill the person's house (soul) so that demons cannot come back in.
Parts 1 to 3 are all you need to have for deliverance and can be given to a person to take awayand pray by themselves


Easy Deliverance Part 1 - the introduction

This method of deliverance was taught me by Jesus and is more effective than the method that is usually used in churches. It does not need anyone else to deliver you as deliverance is between you and Jesus and just requires you to have the attitude you need to have deliverance. However someone may be there to say t he prayer for you or to guide and encourage you in it.
I used it successfully on the internet for years and did not need to know anything about a person including what they were giving to Jesus to be freed from.
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.
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, problem or event 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 unless you give it back to Him again. 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 reason we give areas to Jesus and not sins is because James tells us to confess our faults/weaknesses to Jesus and not our sins as Jesus knows them already and has dealt with them at Calvary.
The deliverance prayer does not restore you to salvation. It removes the defilement of the sin as sin itself has already been forgiven at Calvary. Calvary was more than forgiveness. They were remitted so it was as if they had never been committed.
The following Lordship prayer outline summarises the above:

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

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

Easy Deliverance part 2

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 the giving of these things is only between you and Jesus, so you do not need to say them out loud, but only need to quietly give them to Him in your heart for Him alone to hear.
We use give a list of things so you can refer back to and check you have given them to Jesus. Satan is a Legalist and having a list like this removes some of his power over you by stopping him causing you to doubt any deliverance you have had. You can always go back and check the list . It also helps you see what he is trying to have you accept by placing thoughts in your mind to imply you have not been delivered from that area.

To say for step 1 for abuse or trauma

For ritual abuse of any kind, trauma, abuse verbal and/or physical (e.g. of a spouse)

Lord I give you all the abuse and trauma I have had for you to be Lord of.
I give you the causes and results as well as anything associated with these.
I give you any divisions and hidden rooms these caused in my soul to be Lord of and integrate back as one soul
I give you any wrong contracts, agreements worship and knowledge which is not of your Kingdom.
I give you the causes, results and anything associated with these to you to also be Lord of because I desire you to be Lord of all my life.

The prayer of deliverance.

Why are so many things mentioned? Satan is a legalist and may try to say you did not give this area to Jesus. But you can point to this prayer and tell him to go.

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:

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 do not get deliverance.
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 the 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 ask you to be Lord of it.

Then repent in your heart so only Jesus need hear

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 they 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 to 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.

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.

After Deliverance

After deliverance Satan will often attack you in the areas you have been delivered from to try and convince you that you have not had deliverance. Because Jesus is now Lord of these areas Satan will find it difficult to cause you to sin in these areas.
Satan will place thoughts in your mind to imply you were not delivered in the hope you will believe him, give up fighting these thoughts or emotions and continue to sin believing you cannot be delivered from it. Just keep giving the nature of the attack to Jesus to be Lord using the five steps and you will also take care of any deliverance needed.
You will find it easier to resist these attacks as they are now sourced externally and not internally.If you sin just remember in 1 John 1;9 we are told:

(KJV) If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.

On other words: If we confess our sins, God forgives us and removes from us all the spiritual consequences of the sin. So what do you do with these mental attacks:
Jesus knows we will fail and all He asks is that you wholeheartedly keep trying not to sin. Jesus does not look at your successes or failures but at the heart attitude you had while you tried to do His Will.
Remember, Satan can only get you to sin if you accept what he suggests you do.
To deal with these attacks just use the framework of the five steps giving the type or area of attack to Jesus.
You may only need to name the area of attack and all the demons in that area are removed.
You only name individual sins, things or demons if The Holy Spirit says too
Any thought, imagination, wrong reasoning or thoughts, arguments, emotion, sensation or feeling that is not right in your spirit give to Jesus as these are placed there by demons who can affect your emotions and feelings and place thoughts in you that are not correct


God only gives us good things so evil comes from Satan. Remember that shame, guilt and condemnation comes now only from demons as the reasons fore them were dealt with at Calvary. The Holy Spirit convicts and never condemns, shames you or makes you feel guilty. So if these occur give them to Jesus using the five steps.
Shame makes you feel you are a terrible person. Conviction does not because it guides you to do the correct thing which is one of the roles of The Holy Spirit.
Having bad thoughts is not sin. Acting on them and enjoying these, even if only in your mind, is.

2 Cor 10:5 casting down imaginations, and every high thing that is exalted against the knowledge of God, and bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ;
Phil 4:6 Finally, my friends, keep your minds on whatever is true, pure, right, holy, friendly, and proper. Don't ever stop thinking about what is truly worthwhile and worthy of praise.


Remember you will fail but God understands and knows we are dust and all you have to do is to wholeheartedly repent if necessary, use the framework of the five steps and learn the lesson God desires you to learn and then you need to continue to wholeheartedly try to do God's Will.
God does not judge you by your results but by the heart attitude in which you do the task. If we were all judged by our results very few would make it to heaven.
Remember! There is no more shame, guilt or condemnation for sin or failure because these were all removed at Calvary. When you fail, learn any lesson and keep on going remembering the principle in Luke 9:62.

Luk 9:62 And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

The past is to learn lessons from and not to live in. Remember t hat earth is God's training and preparation ground for eternal life in heaven so that we need to learn the lessons God gives us.
The race is not to the fastest or the most knowledgeable but to those that endure to the end in spite of all the failings they will make as they do this race.
Remember: The Holy Spirit will convict you of a sin and help you overcome the temptation or trial. He will not cause you to feel shame, guilt or condemnation. And also, you do not sin for having wrong thoughts as Satan will place these in you. You sin by accepting them and doing what is suggested to do by them. The sin occurs when you agree to do the action in your heart and not whether or not you carry it out.

The five steps in summary

Deliverance does not end with the deliverance session A form of deliverance occurs whenever we are delivered from an attack of Satan. The authority of Jesus is used to remove Satan which is what happens in a deliverance session.

Your responsibility

You need to maintain your side of the salvation relationship. Correct Holiness, Lordship and stewardship attitudes do this. You need to major on the four foundations of Christianity: Faith, Lordship, Holiness and the expression of God's quality of Love in all you do.

You need to learn how to fight Satan

You need to learn how to do deliverance as Jesus said all who follow and believed in who He was would do these things.
You need to be able to tell others why you follow and serve Jesus and why they should also do this. In other words, why they need Jesus and what He did for them, is doing now and will do for them.


Deliverance is a sign you believe Jesus is who He said He was and demonstrates He and His Kingdom are real. This is why it is important to know how to do these things.
It also fulfils something He said His followers would do so you need to be able to do deliverance.
Remember that you will have to face Jesus and give an account of what you did w th what He gave you and the ability to do deliverance is one thing He has given you to do for Him.
