Repentance Prayers and Self-Deliverance

Many people declare, listen, read and stand on the word of God only to find nothing changes in their lives. “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’” (Matthew 4:4, NKJV). One of the interpretations for what this Scripture is saying is that there is more to God than just simply what His written word says.  The key word here is 'every word' that proceeds from the mouth of God. We also need to hear what the Spirit of God is speaking to us through His Holy Spirit.  Many have taken the voice of God out of the equation.  We need to seek the voice of God which will always line up with what the Word of God says. The PDF's on this page were formed by listening to the voice of God, which was backed up by the Word of God. Repentance, Deliverance, Healing, the Blood of Jesus and standing on the word of God is usually needed for complete and total freedom in most cases. These PDF's are about yielding the whole of oneself to God and His Kingdom so He can remove the things that hinder You for His purposes so His will can be done. It is about laying aside ‘us’ and purposefully working in the calling He has for us. Working in Gods Kingdom is all about becoming more Christ-like, saving souls and Glorifying Jesus.

It is my belief that you will enter into more freedom and have a closer relationship with Jesus as you work through these PDF's. These prayers are unique and not a replica of other people's ideas.  They are created through revelation of the Holy Spirit as He works with us. There may be the odd prayer or idea that has been added to our Ministry from others because it impacted us, but more often than not you will be viewing an original. The ideas and information are written through our belief of what the Holy Spirit has shown or revealed to us. All prayers are subject to change as God gives new insight or revelation. The prayers of repentance need to be prayed out loud.

 A few people have approached me and asked why there is so much work to be done to be set free. For some freedom can take a while to achieve.  This has certainly being the case for me. This may not be the case for everyone though as it is all in God's hand and in accordance with His grace and anointing.  Many can be set free with one prayer or one word. Other times you may pray and break off the roots of something but still have to outwork what you have prayed. This Ministry is not a Healing Ministry where healing is the main focus. The main focus of this Ministry is to become Christ-like. Sanctification and healing work hand in hand. The more holy you become the more whole you become. It is also a teaching Ministry which shows people how to get free and also how to stay free.   It is to be used and shared. I pray that God would show you His grace, His mercy, and that He would open the eyes of your understanding as you work your way through these prayers and pray them out loud. 

Why do we need deliverance?

Many have been taught that once you are saved Christians can no longer have demons nor have any curses in operation over their lives. This wrong teaching has caused many in the Body of Christ to be under so much bondage because this is in our opinion untrue. Demons cannot dwell in a human's spirit as this is the area that is first born-again when you accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour.  Paul tells us that we are a spirit, soul and body (1 Thessalonians 5:23) and that God wants to sanctify us in all three areas. The soul is the mind, will, emotions and evil conscience, and is also sometimes referred to as the heart of man.  The moment you are saved you become a new creation. You become a Son or Daughter of the Most High God and your Kingdom is now in Heaven. Upon salvation your spirit-man is born-again. Your spirit now has all the fruits of the Holy Spirit, and is your good conscience, or Godly-conscience. Unfortunately your flesh (physical body and soul) still needs to be crucified to come into alignment with the born-again spirit. Who hath also sealed us, and given the earnest of the Spirit in our hearts (2 Corinthians 1:22, KJV). The word ‘sealed us’ in Greek is Sphragizo and means to 1) to set a seal upon, mark with a seal, to seal. The word ‘the earnest’ (of the Spirit) in Greek is Arrhabon and means 1) an earnest 1a) money which in purchases is given as a pledge or down payment that the full amount will subsequently be paid. We see by this when we first receive the Holy Spirit our spirits bear witness with His Spirit that we are children of God, and our heart is sealed with a down payment of the Holy Spirit in which the full amount will subsequently be paid.  We have not received the fullness of the Holy Spirit until the heart (soul) is cleansed, healed and made whole through the sanctification process of purification and the renewing of the soul.  As the old man dies, the new man rises up in resurrection power – it is a process. Scripture also shows us that we receive our new physical body at Christ’s return. This too is not made new at the moment of original conversion.

Why is our soul and body not born-again the moment we are saved? As far as God is concerned the work is done.  Jesus has offered His life for our life.  All we need to do is take it by submitting our spirits/souls, bodies, and entire lives to Jesus.  It is a swap. There is an exchange that happens at the cross. He who finds his life will lose it, and he who loses his life for My sake will find it (Matthew 10:39, NKJV). This is harder than we think.  There are many areas in our lives that we want to hold on to. Take pride for example, we need to exchange our pride for the humility of Christ.  That is incredibly difficult. Man is incredibly prideful in many facets of life. Another example is impatience.  Humans are incredibly impatient.  We need to walk through some pretty tough trials in order to take on the patience of Christ.  Interestingly the word patience in the KJV is 'longsuffering'. We cling to these areas and stubbornly refuse God access to them.  Sometimes we may think we are yielding them, but God sees our heart and knows when we are not.  This poses a problem!  Any area not submitted to God is not brought under the Blood of Christ. This means it stays in the hands of the devil.  All unyeilded areas have not passed through the Cross. Christ is the door and is now on the other side of the Cross. He is seated at the right hand of the Father in Heaven. To go through the door you need to first go through the cross. I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture (John 10:9, KJV). To inherit  the Kingdom here on earth we first need to let go of the world. The word of God says to seek first the Kingdom and His righteousness and everything will be added unto you (Matthew 6:33). The word of God tells us that we need to be crucified with Christ. The devil has legal rights over these areas. Ephesians 4:26-27 tells us not to give a place to the devil. The word place in Greek is Topos and means opportunity, power, occasion to act.  When we sin we give power to the devil. We may need repentance, deliverance and healing in those areas before we can let them go and accept Christ into them. All unyeilded areas are still seen as sin and need to be confessed and sanctified by using the name and power of Jesus Christ. Clearly Christians can still be sick in their bodies, emotionally wounded, struggling with money, and much more. What Jesus did was give us a guarantee of eternal life in Heaven no matter what. The only thing that can nullify this is, if we walk away, wilfully sin with no conscience and reject Jesus Christ. Our physical bodies and our souls are not made new at the beginning of our salvation. This is the walk we must go through to crucify the flesh. There is an old man and a new man. This is the dying to self process. The flesh is the physical body and the carnal nature of man. Until these unyielded areas are sanctified they are still in bondage to sin, demons, curses and sickness. They will continue to tempt and coerce us to enter into sin. The unyielded areas want us to make the wrong decisions which is why we need the power of Christ to crucify them. As you yield God does the transforming, you've just got to let Him! The good news is those unyeilded areas are not bound to the old covenant system of punishment.  Although they are not made new at the time of salvation they are under the law of love.  Instead of being cut off from God when we sin, He stands beside us and helps us to become new in spirit/soul and body so we will no longer continue in sin and be in bondage to curses, sickness and disease. The soul and physical body are made new through the sanctification process (being tested through the fire of God) as we walk in obedience and surrender our whole selves to Him.

Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us (for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who hangs on a tree”, that the blessing of Abraham might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus, that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith (Galatians 3:13-14, NKJV).  This is the Scripture that is used for those who teach all curses over our lives are gone. The 'curse of the law' was the penalty system of punishment for those that failed to keep the law.  The good news is that the penalty system for not keeping the law is gone. WE ARE NO LONGER UNDER THE LAW! The penalties ranged from 'being unclean to the evening' (Leviticus 11:24-28) to 'making an offering' (Leviticus 5:5-6) to being 'cut off' (Leviticus 7:27) and to 'the death penalty' (Exodus 31:14). You are no longer under the old Covenant punishment system.  You are under the New Covenant system of Love. There is still however a principle of reaping what you have sown still in place. For he who sows to his flesh will of the flesh reap corruption, but he who sows to the Spirit will of the Spirit reap everlasting life (Galatians 6:8, NKJV).  When we sin we reap corruption to our flesh. God is righteous and has a moral code of conduct of right and wrong that He wants all His children to abide by. When one makes a decision there will always be a consequence to that decision.  The consequence will either be good or bad.  It is our choice to make these decisions. It is God's natural law of disciplinary action taking place.  It was designed this way. For whom the Lord loves He chastens, and scourges every son whom He receives. If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is there whom a father does not chasten? (Hebrews 12:6-7, NKJV). We have a choice to bless or curse ourselves and others! The good news is this natural law of cause and effect although affecting us in our flesh and circumstances does not affect our relationship with God, neither does it affect our salvation status.  The punishment that dictated both those things is what Jesus removed at the Cross of Calvary! God took away punishment and left behind love, grace and discipline.

How do we gauge sin and know when we are operating in the flesh? The Moral Law of God is what God views as right and wrong. The Moral Law of God is still in effect. Do we then make void (not valid or legally binding) the law through faith? Certainly not! On the contrary, we establish (set up on a permanent basis) the law (Romans 3:31, NKJV). The Law was never removed, only the penalties. The Moral law of God is written on our hearts and in our minds. For this is the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel after those days, says the Lord: I will put My laws in their mind and write them on their hearts; and I will be their God, and they shall be My people (Hebrews 8:10, NKJV).  The Bible tells us not to sin.  Breaking the moral law of God is a sin. Operating in the works of the flesh is a sin. Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, Meekness, temperance: against such there is no law (Galatians 5:19-23, KJV). The moral law of God is good because it shows us the standard in which we as followers of Christ should live, but keeping the law does not earn your salvation, or make you become righteous.  It also does not earn you favour with God, nor can it heal you. You are already righteous because Christ in you makes you righteous, you are saved through faith by believing in Christ for your salvation and you already have favour with God because you are adopted as a son/daughter upon salvation.  Healing can only take place when the blood of Jesus removes the sin. Keeping the moral law should now be about 'worship' and 'resisting the devil so he flees from you'.  Keeping the law has nothing to do with your salvation or being in right standing with God.  Only faith in Jesus can render you righteous and His Blood justifies you.

 You should still live by God's moral law of righteousness? The moral law of God is good and right. Romans 7:12, NKJV: "Therefore the law is holy, and the commandment holy and just and good". Gods law is about right and wrong. The entire basis of Gods law is LOVE - to love Him, love ourselves and to love others. We need to choose to always do the right thing, but this in no way earns our salvation.  Adhering to the Law of God is also a form of worship. It shows Him we love and respect Him. Instead of seeing the law and focusing on the law it is actually far easier to instead focus on love - which is walking with Him in a personal relationship focused on loving Him, loving others and loving ourselves. The Holy Spirit in us helps us to achieve this.  We are not left on our own to achieve this and don't need to feel condemnation when we mess up. God knows we are imperfect and does not expect perfection from us. This is the sanctification process we walk through to become Christ-like.  We cannot do this in our own strength, it is impossible. Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I did not come to destroy but to fulfil (Matthew 5:17, NKJV). I took the word fulfil back to Greek, which is pleroo and is translated make full, to fill to the full – to cause to abound and 'complete' and 'to carry through until the end'. Jesus fulfilled the whole requirements of the law so we didn't have to. Why?  Because in our own strength it was impossible! His words 'It is done" means He fulfilled the requirements of the law set by God to inherit all that God had promised through the keeping of the law. Jesus then comes to complete and carry through to the end the fulfillment of His work on the cross 'through us' as we allow Him to sanctify and cleanse us from all sin through His Holy Spirit working in us. He helps us to achieve this. Gods objective is to transform us into the express image of His son Jesus.  This is possible and can happen to us whilst on earth.  It is when we are glorified - walking in the fullness of God with no spot or wrinkle, then and only then has Jesus completely fulfilled the law through us. In the next verse He goes on to say; For assuredly, I say to you, till heaven and earth pass away, one jot or one tittle will by no means pass from the law till all is fulfilled (Matthew 5:18, NKJV). Currently Heaven and earth have not passed away!  This is still to come.

 I believe that when all unyielded areas pass through the cross we will no longer sin. We will be so changed that sin will no longer have dominion over us. It is all the old areas within us that are still carrying all the baggage. The new is new and won't receive curses, demons or even want to walk contrary to the Moral statutes of God.

The following prayers are designed to bring truth and revelation to aide in this process. Repentance is a huge part of our journey in God.  Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord (Acts 3:19, NKJV). Why do we have to repent when God already laid our iniquity on Jesus at the cross and He bore our sins in His own body?  Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed (1 Peter 2:24, KJV). All we like sheep have gone astray; we have turned everyone to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all (Isaiah 53:6, KJV).  The word for iniquity in Hebrew is `avon and means guilt of iniquity, consequence of or punishment for iniquity. The iniquity that God laid upon Jesus at the cross was our guilt and punishment for breaking the law.  Jesus was held responsible for every sin we broke through not keeping the law. Jesus had already achieved keeping the whole law by Himself so it cancelled out this iniquity.  This selfless act removed the curse of the law. We are no longer under the law. We are saved and will now inherit eternal life in Heaven.  It is a free gift. We are still however responsible for the consequences that follow from our own actions due to the reaping and sowing effect which is still in place whilst we are still alive and remain on earth.  Although God went ahead of us and laid the sin of us all upon Jesus at the cross He does not violate free-will. Free-will is the freedom to choose our course of action. If God laid every man and woman’s sin upon Jesus and that is all that had to be done then every man and woman in the world would have been saved right there and then – unbelievers and believers. This is proven to not be the case.  We have the choice to believe in Jesus and His work on the cross and enter into it or not. This means we also have to be willing to lay our sin upon Jesus. In other words we have to be willing to repent and turn away from it. 1 Peter 2:24 says that He bares our sin in His own body, that we being dead to sins should live unto righteousness. Being dead to sin means we have to die to sin.  This means we have to also go through the cross with Christ and allow Him to crucify the flesh. Know ye not, that so many of us as were baptized into Jesus Christ were baptized into his death? Therefore we are buried with him by baptism into death: that like as Christ was raised up from the dead by the glory of the Father, even so we also should walk in newness of life. For if we have been planted together in the likeness of his death, we shall be also in the likeness of his resurrection: Knowing this, that our old man is crucified with him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin (Romans 6:3-7, KJV).  Until we have died to our old selves’ and crucified the flesh, sin still resides in us. We need the Holy Spirit to help us put to death the deeds of the flesh otherwise we reap corruption. This is all part of the sanctification process. If the Holy Spirit reveals to you a sin then this means it hasn't been forgiven and needs to be confessed.  It is the confession of the sin that enables the sin to be forgiven.  Whoever conceals their sins does not prosper, but the one who confesses and renounces them finds mercy (Proverbs 28:13, NKJV).  God showed me that Christians are falling way short of the mark when it comes to repentance. We have lost the meaning of what repentance really is. If we recognise that we have been prideful we may pray in this manner; "Father God please forgive me for being prideful in Jesus name, Amen". His word says that if we 'confess' our sins He will 'forgive' us. This way of praying is not really a confession of our sin. It is more a prayer of asking for absolution because we know we have messed up. We receive forgiveness by repenting, not by asking for forgiveness. Why do we even ask God for forgiveness when His Word says it is already done if we repent? Repentance is the key! Forgiveness is part of God's gift of Grace. 

 Repent: Sincere remorse for our sins that touches our heart, and causes us to reform our lives. To turn away from

 Confess: A statement where one is admitting they are guilty of a crime.  

 Repentance is taking ownership of the sin by confessing it as sin. We want to show God we truly hate it and want to turn away from it.  An example prayer for the same sin of pride would be: "Father God I repent for pride.  Pride is a sin. Please clothe me in the cloak of humility. Help me to be humble and walk in the humility of Christ, In Jesus name, Amen".  We are to hunger and thirst for His righteousness and ask God to help us hate what He hates, and to love what He loves!  

When it comes to casting out demons the Lord has shown us that many of us repent of things but forget to cast out the demons after we have repented. He showed me that demons are stubborn and rebellious and need to be told to leave. The Bible also tell us to cast out spirits. And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons (Mark 16:17, NKJV). Demons like to invade in groups, so where you find a spirit of anger, there is more than likely a spirit of temper, violence, unforgiveness, rage, aggression, tantrums etc.

The prayers provided are about teaching people how our soulish areas are in bondage to sin – either from our own sin, our ancestors sins, or from those sinning against us.  They are about exposing the weak areas in our lives, so we can protect ourselves against the enemy.  By learning how these spirits came to be with us in the first place, and after removing them we can prevent re-infestation by recognising footholds and traps the enemy lays to hook us again. There is a lot of repentance, but this in no way reflects how God sees us or even how much He loves us.  He loves us no matter what, just like we love our kids unconditionally.  We are righteous in His eyes because we are covered with the blood of Christ.  We are adopted as a son/daughter and receive salvation the moment we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour but scripture says when we confess our sins He is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins. It also shows God how much we love Him and breaks the power of the enemy. These sessions are about bringing the soul and the carnal nature of man into alignment with the born again spirit, so we can reap the promises of abundant living promised in the scriptures. This is a process. Our soulish areas are vulnerable because we are human, sin lives in us and we will continue to sin, until we remove the driving force which is demons and re-new our minds. After deliverance we need to renew our minds with the Word of God.  Declaring what the word says each day over our lives is the key to keeping our freedom!

These prayers are designed for you to seek Jesus and spend time with Him whilst praying. There are times when the prayers require you to listen and see what He is showing you. Many people struggle with this and believe that they cannot hear God.  In my experience I believe we can all hear Him, we just may not be recognising Him.  He may speak to you with a thought that just pops into your head, or He may give you a vision, or an impression.  Others times it can just be simply a knowing.  You just perceive something in your knower!  **If at any time during your seeking you don't get shown any specific things that you are asking for just simply continue with the prayer leaving that part of the prayer out.

Although we are eternally saved at the cross the moment we accept Jesus as our Lord and Saviour we need to confess and turn away from all things that are not of God.  Any unyeilded area is legal ground for satan. Any unforgiveness we hold toward another person is seen as an unyielded area, and is legal ground for satan. When we don’t know the truth of God we are easy pickings for satan. But he that does the truth comes to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are worked in God (John 3:21 NKJV). Our soulish areas need to be renewed in spirit and truth.  Once the truth of Christ removes the lies and the old mind-sets we can be truly free.  

John 17:17 Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth.
●Psalm 86:11 Teach me your way, O LORD, that I may walk in your truth; unite my heart to fear your name.
●1 John 3:18 Little children, let us not love in word or talk but in deed and in truth.
●John 8:36 He whom the Son sets free is free indeed.

After deliverance it is important you understand what you were set free from. “When an unclean spirit goes out of a man, he goes through dry places, seeking rest; and finding none, he says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ And when he comes, he finds it swept and put in order. Then he goes and takes with him seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter and dwell there; and the last state of that man is worse than the first” (Luke 11:24-26, NKJV). If we haven’t learned the truth and totally yielded those areas to God then those spirits can easily invade us again, but worse than before. Remember – You will know the truth and the truth will set you free.
