Lordship 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.  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.

Step 1

So give to Jesus, quietly in your heart, so no one but He can hear you anything that troubles you. You do not need to name the sins just the area the sin or problem is in for Jesus to be Lord of. All you need to do is to agree to give the following in your heart for Jesus to be Lord of. So give to Jesus any:

Moral weaknesses you have

Sins you have trouble defeating

Loveless acts toward others

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

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

Wrong understanding, knowledge and learning, wrong worship or attitudes to God

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

Wrong relationships you have

Betrothal (engagement) and social activities

Marriage, family and any problems in that area



Fear of Authority

Fear of Failure

All others fears

Any wrong agreements or contracts …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 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, then pray as follows:

Give Jesus also the causes and results of all these things as well as anything else associated with them.

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 want 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 Lord 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

Jesus, I forgive all who have hurt me.

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.

You may need to pray:

Lord I repent and 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.

Steps three and four need to be said, and can be whispered so softly only you and Jesus can hear it.

Step 3

Now command Satan to leave and to take all He did to you with him. 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 Judgment to be dealt with by' Jesus.

In Jesus' Name I command you to take with you everything in, on or around me or that you have done to me at any time.

In Jesus’ Name I forbid any demon at any time replacing any of the demons that have left and of replacing anything they were doing to me.

Step 4

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

Step 5

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

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 per-mission 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 in you or emotions on you that you have not given to Jesus things for Jesus to be Lord of.  Just give these to Jesus using the above five steps which form the basis of the prayer above.

Also, whenever you have a lack of peace about anything you are doing, thinking or feeling give it to Jesus using this Five Step framework.

The five steps in summary

Give it to Jesus to be Lord of

Repent, forgive, reconcile

Cast out Satan

Command healing and restoration

Ask Holy Spirit to fill you completely.
