Angel of God, my guardian dear. To whom God’s love commits me here. Ever this day, be at my side. To light and guard, to rule and guide. Amen.

THE MIRACLE PRAYER

Lord, Jesus, I come before You, just as I am. I am sorry for my sins, I repent of my sins, please forgive me. In Your name, I forgive all others for what they have done against me. I renounce Satan, the evil spirits and all their works. I give You my entire self. Lord Jesus, now and forever, I invite You into my life Jesus. I accept You as my Lord and Saviour. Heal me, change me, strengthen me in body, soul and spirit.

Come Lord Jesus, cover me with Your precious blood, and fill me with Your Holy Spirit, I love You Jesus. I praise You Jesus. I thank You Jesus. I shall follow You every day of my life. Amen.

THE PRAYER TO TAKE AUTHORITY

Said on Thursdays during deliverance prayers from 9:00pm

I place myself in the presence of Jesus Christ and submit to His Lordship. I ‘Put on God’s armour so as to be able to resist the devil’s tactics’ (Ephesians 6;10-11). I stand my ground, ‘with truth buckled around my waist, and integrity for a breastplate…’ (Ephesians 6;14). I carry the ‘shield of faith’ to ‘put out the burning arrows of the evil one…’ (Ephesians 6;16). I accept ‘salvation from God to be my helmet and receive the word of God from the Spirit to use as a sword’ (Ephesians 6:17).

In the name of Jesus Christ crucified, died and risen, I bind all spirits of the air, the atmosphere, the water, the fire, the wind, the ground, the underground, and the nether world. I also bind the influence of any lost or fallen souls who may be present, and all emissaries of the Satanic headquarters or any coven of witches or warlocks or Satan worshippers who may be present in some preternatural way. I claim the blood of Jesus on the air and atmosphere, the water, the fire, the wind, the ground and their fruits all around us, the underground and nether world.

In the name of Jesus Christ I forbid every adversary mentioned to communicate with or help one another in any way, or to communicate with me, or to do anything at all except what I command in Jesus’ name.

In the name of Jesus Christ I seal ourselves and all family members and relatives, friends and associates, their places and all possessions and sources of supply of those mentioned in the blood of Jesus. (Repeat three times)

In the name of Jesus Christ I forbid any lost spirits, covens, Satanic groups or emissaries or any of their associates, subjects or superiors to harm or take revenge on me, my family and my associates, or to cause any harm or damage to anything we have or are associated with.

In the name of Jesus Christ and by the merits of His Precious Blood, I break and dissolve every curse, hex, seal, spell, sorcery, bond, snare, trap, device, lie, stumbling block, obstacle, deception, diversion or distraction, spiritual chain or spiritual influence, also every disease of body, mind or spirit placed upon us, or on this place, or on any of the persons, places and things mentioned, by any agent, or brought on us by our own mistakes or sins. (Repeat three times)

I now place the cross of Jesus Christ between myself and all generations in my family tree. I say in the name of Jesus Christ that there will be no direct communication between the generations. All communications will be filtered through the Precious Blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Mary the Immaculate, clothe me in the light, power and energy of your faith. Father, please assign the angels and saints to assist me. Thank You Lord Jesus, for being my Wisdom, my Justice, my Sanctification, and my Redemption. I surrender to the ministry of Your Holy Spirit and receive Your truth concerning intergenerational healing.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son and to the Holy Spirit. As it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.
