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. 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 it to Jesus to be Lord of
We make certain we have nothing in our life stopping Jesus hearing this prayer:
Unforgiveness of yourself or another or not wanting to reconcile to another
A sin you will not give up
These stop God hearing your prayers until you do the only one thing he will hear, that of repenting of either or both of the above two things.
We 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.
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 say them in your heart for Him alone to hear.
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.
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
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"
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 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 in this area,
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.
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
Lord I repent of …name the sin(s) or are of sin(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.
Now command Satan to leave and to take all He did to you with him to Jesus:
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.
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.
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 on you 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

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.
