Identify the Lie – Prayer
“Father, I come to You now in the wonderful Name of Jesus Christ. I thank You that Your Word states that if I confess my sins, You are faithful and just (1 John 1:9) and that You remove them from me as far as the east is from the west (Psalm 103:12). So I come to You now and I confess each and every sin that I have committed to this day. Whether they were wrong thoughts, wrong words or wrong deeds, Father You know them all. I also confess all my sexual immorality prior to marriage and/or outside of marriage as sin.
(Should the Holy Spirit lead you as such, also name all the other sins He reminds you of, aloud) .
I place all my sins before Your throne today and I beg You to please forgive me now.
Thank You Lord that Your Word says You do forgive me now and that You will remember my sins and iniquities no more (Hebrews 8:12 and Hebrews 10:17). With gratitude and thankfulness I accept Your forgiveness and so I can confess with my mouth – to the world and also to satan and his powers – that I believe in Jesus Christ and His resurrection from the dead and that Jesus Christ of Nazareth is my King, my Lord, my Savior, my Redeemer and my Friend (Romans 10:9, 10). Thank You Lord Jesus for that!
Father, Your Word says that if I forgive I can be forgiven (Luke 6:37), but if I don’t forgive I may not receive forgiveness (Matthew 6:15). Lord, I know now that I have just received forgiveness from You (again), so I have no right, and no reason, not to WANT to forgive any other person. However, I may not be able to do this in my own power Lord, so I beg of You to give me Your power and to help me forgive, not in my own power but in Yours.
I refuse to allow satan any further legal right in my life through any unforgiveness, and I choose to break with every bad thing from my past. I choose to put my past behind me and to enter a hope and a future filled with God.
So I come to You now and I forgive all my ancestors for anything they may have said or anything they did which caused any curses, iniquities or adulteries to come upon me. I take them all off my back today, wash them clean in the blood of Jesus and place them all before Your throne.
I also forgive my father and mother (or stepmother/stepfather) for anything they did or did not do, which has hurt me or disappointed me, or has left me feeling rejected, unwanted, unworthy or a failure. I take them both off my back now, wash them clean in Jesus’ blood and I place them before Your throne. I pray that You will bless them all now, wherever they may be.
I further forgive my brothers and/or sisters (or step-brothers/step-sisters) and their husbands/wives. I forgive them for anything they said or did which may have hurt me or disappointed me. I break the chains of darkness that bound them to my back and take them off my back one by one, I wash them all clean in the blood of Jesus Christ and I put them before Your throne. I pray that You will bless them all abundantly Father, in their marriages, relationships and businesses, in Jesus’ Name.
I also choose to release and forgive all my old school friends and teachers at school who teased me, bullied me or rejected me in any manner. I forgive each one of them individually and I take them all off my back today. I wash them all clean in the blood of Jesus and I leave them before Your throne. My prayer is that, wherever they may be today, that they will all know You as a loving Father and merciful God.
Now I come and I forgive all my previous sex-partners. You know who they were Lord, male or female. I forgive them all for their individual share in the spiritual onslaught on my body, my life and my marriage. I break every ungodly soul-tie I have with each one of them and take them all off my back now. I wash them clean in Jesus’ blood and I put them all before Your throne as You died for each one of them too. I pray that You will bless them all, that their marriages and children may be blessed and that they will all know You as a loving Father and merciful God.
I further choose to forgive every person, male or female who has ever molested me in any manner whatsoever. I refuse to allow satan any further legal right to hold that which has happened against me. He has bound me long enough and I now choose to sever the ties of bitterness, hate and unforgiveness by forgiving and releasing each and every one of them for what they did to my body. I take them off my back individually and I place them all before Your throne today. I also choose to go one step further and to bless them from the bottom of my heart with the best of God’s blessings.
I also forgive the rest of my family, friends, in-laws or colleagues who have hurt me, disappointed me or stabbed me in the back in any manner. You know who they were Lord and You know what they did to me as You were there every time. I now forgive each one of them for all words or deeds that caused me hurt and I take them off my back to put them before your throne. I pray that You will bless them all and that they will all walk the road with You.
Now I forgive all my children (or stepchildren) for anything they said or did that has hurt me or disappointed me. They are my children Father and You have blessed me with them, for which I thank You. I take them off my back too, I wash them in Jesus’ blood and I put them before Your throne. I pray that You will bless my children and that they will walk the road of life with You as a loving Father and a merciful God.
Now I deliberately choose to forgive my husband / wife (or ex-husband / ex-wife) for everything he / she did against me that has hurt me or has disappointed me during our marriage. I forgive him / her completely in the same manner that Jesus forgave me, take him / her off my back, wash him / her clean in the blood of Jesus Christ and put him / her before Your throne. He / she is my husband / wife Lord Jesus, You gave him / her to me and You do not make mistakes. We are the ones making so many mistakes in our lives and marriages for which I ask your forgiveness. I now take myself, my husband / wife and my children and I pray us all under the protection of the blood of Christ as a family unit. I put our whole family before Your throne as a unit and I now declare, like Joshua of old: “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord!”
Lord, as I take these heavy burdens off my back now to put it before Your throne, I choose to leave them there for ever. I CHOOSE never to pick it up again as I now wish to only take up Jesus’ yoke, as the Bible clearly states that Your yoke is easy and Your burden is light (Matthew 11:30).
That is why I can now forgive and release myself. I forgive myself from the depths of my heart for all these old feelings of guilt and all the negative words and thoughts I had about myself as a result of mistakes I made, wrong decisions taken and wrong deeds that I did. I take myself off my back now, wash myself clean in the blood of Jesus Christ and put myself before your throne at the place where I can see myself standing today, pure, washed clean by Jesus’ blood.
And then Father, I forgive You today, for all the times I blamed You for the things that went wrong in my life. I know today that it wasn’t You Lord, but satan’s lies in my life. So I pray that You will forgive me for blaming You wrongly. Thank You Lord that I may know that You do forgive me for that as well.
Father, Your Word says that satan was overcame by the blood of the Lamb and the word of the testimony of the saints (Revelation 12:11). My testimony is: I am a blood-washed child of Jesus Christ. I was crowned with honor and glory (Psalm 8:6) and am more than a conqueror through Christ who loves me (Romans 8:37). I am a prince / princess of God, because my Father is the King of the universe. You have called me by my name, I am Yours (Isaiah 43:1).
Your Word also states that I have the power to tread on serpents and scorpions (satan and his demons) (Luke 10:19); that if I submit myself to You and rebuke the devil that he will flee from me (James 4:7). Therefore Lord I now submit myself to You – my thoughts, my body, my life, my relationships with my children, spouse, friends, family and colleagues. Everything I have and everything I am I now submit to You. I take up the authority I have in the mighty Name of Jesus Christ, even though it may be for the first time in my life. I know now that I do have the authority to be able to now say to satan and his demons:
Satan, you and all your demon spirits who have made my life hell to this day, it is finished now. I am also under the blood of Jesus Christ and I now remove any legal rights you may think you have in my thoughts, my body, my life, my marriage, my relationship with my family, friends, colleagues or in any other area of my life or my body.
I now break your chains and declare your works null and void. I break your holds on my life and I command you to leave me today and to go to the dry waterless places the Bible speaks of. You will not stay in this town, you will not enter any other people and you will not enter any animals.
Satan, you will disappear now and you will take with you all your different spirits:
Spirit of LIES, you have lied to me enough and you have used me enough to lie to others. I have met the Truth personally. His Name is Jesus Christ and there is no more place for lies in my life. I break your chains of lies and I command you to leave me now, in the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth !
Spirit of FEAR I break all your chains and I destroy any form of FEAR in my life – FEAR of the dark, FEAR of people, FEAR of rejection, FEAR about my finances, FEAR about my future, FEAR about my health, FEAR about my marriage, FEAR about my children’s future. Satan, it is written that God has not given me a spirit of FEAR, but of love, power and a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7) and that is how I choose to live from this very moment, it is also written that perfect love casts out fear (1 John 4:18). I do have that perfect love, because Jesus Christ lives within me (Galatians 2:20). So, spirit of FEAR, I break your chains and I cast you out of my life, in Jesus Name!

Disappear from my life in the Name of Jesus Christ!
Spirit of UNFORGIVENESS you have heard me forgive everybody who have hurt me. I will also keep on forgiving people who hurt me as indicated to me by my Lord Jesus Christ. Because I have forgiven everybody, the Bible states that I am free (Luke 6:37). You have no legal right in my life anymore so I declare your chains to be broken and I command you to leave me in Jesus Name!

Spirit of DEPRESSION, you have no legal right in my life anymore. You try to pull me into that black hole but I refuse to allow you any further place in my life. I have already broken the chains of the spirit of FEAR and have already commanded him to leave my life. Now I break your chains of DEPRESSION in the Name of Jesus Christ and command you to leave my life too!
Spirits of SUICIDE, DEATH and the DEAF & DUMB SPIRIT, the three of you tried to steal my life but God has protected me. I have work to do as a prophet for the nations. It is written that I am blessed with a long life and I choose to live my long life in order to honor God and to free other people from your bondages. So I break your chains of suicidal thoughts, death and of the DEAF & DUMB SPIRIT. Leave, in Jesus Name!

Spirits of LUST, ADULTERY and PERVERSION, my body is holy and belongs to God and to my spouse inside of marriage and to nobody else. You have also heard me break the ungodly soul-ties in my life so you have no legal right in my thoughts, life or body anymore. I break your chains and command you to leave my thoughts, my body and my private parts in Jesus Name!
Spirit of BONDAGE and ADDICTIONS, you have bound my body long enough with different types of addictions. Whether it was smoking, drinking, drugs, gambling, sex, pornography, gluttony or whatever other form of addiction, it is finished now. I refuse to be bound any longer as it is written that my body is a temple of the Holy Spirit and I refuse to allow you the right to defile my temple any longer. I don’t want to do any of those things any longer and I now break your chains and holds on my thoughts, my body, my mouth, my taste-buds, my throat, my lungs and my intestines and I command you to leave me in Jesus Name!
Spirit of MANIPULATION, you have manipulated me through other people for many years and you have also used me to manipulate other people. I now declare your seed to be dried up in my life. I have submitted myself to God and will now only let myself be controlled by His Word. I break your chains of MANIPULATION now, leave my life in the Name of Jesus Christ!

Spirits of ERROR, LAZINESS and MIND CONTROL, the three of you want to control my thoughts and the way I concentrate when I want to read the Bible, pray, or sit in church. You will not stop me from concentrating on God or His Word ever again. I break all your chains in my mind and body, rebuke you and cast you out of my thoughts, mind and life in the Name of Jesus Christ!
Spirits of HATE and RACISM, you have made me negative towards people of other races for long enough. The Bible says I am a prophet for all the nations, so I break your chains of hate and racism and I exchange it for the love of Jesus. You will both leave me now, in Jesus Name!
Spirits of the OCCULT, DIVINATION and WITCHCRAFT, none of you have any legal right in my life anymore, as a result of any occultic thing or occultic game that me or my ancestors may have participated in.

LORD JESUS, thank You for the blood on the cross which purifies me and washes me clean, and which has just freed me from all the chains and bondages in my life. I make it my own today Lord that, because I have submitted myself to God and have resisted the devil through this prayer, they are now fleeing from me as your Word is very clear about this (James 4:7). Therefore I now pray Lord Jesus that Your blood will flow through me and burn away anything that is not from You, and heal anything that may still be broken in my life.
HOLY SPIRIT, I pray that You will fill me now with Your power from on high, because Lord, I can’t do anything and I don’t want to do anything, without your power. Please fill my house (body) with Your Holy Spirit, in order to ensure that the unclean spirits which I have now cast out will not find any place to live if they return, as stated in Your Word (Matthew 12:43-45).
FATHER, I pray that You will personally teach me from Your Word and that You will give me a new hunger for Your Word. I want to read the Bible like never before Father, and I ask You to reveal it to me like never before. Please teach me how to stay and live in Your spiritual authority against satan and his demon spirits.
I thank You FATHER that I may know and believe today that, in this very moment I am pure and free before Your holy throne, in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ! Amen.”
