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.
Lord I give you all the abuse and trauma I have had for you to be Lord of.
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:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
