We read throughout the Bible of the presence of Satan and his evil workings, as well as the authority and Power of God over him. We have the guarantee of our power over evil through the Holy Spirit within us. As Christians, God calls on us to provide healing prayers for our families, friends, enemies, others, and ourselves as necessary. We can pray for healing in many ways such as for the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs in their lives. Deliverance Ministry is all about winning souls for God, healing, and removing of the demonic accordingly. Prayer is one of the most powerful forms of devotion for spiritual healing and demonic removal. Once assured of the existence of the evil one, we can step out in faith and in the power of God’s Holy Spirit to pray for others in this area and to take authority over Satan and his demons (ghosts).
A book I would recommend that has been helpful is the Deliverance Prayers from Joy Lamb, “The Sword of the Spirit, The Word of God”. This book based on God’s Holy Scripture includes many Prayers for different situations. Here are just a few examples with some paraphrasing:
“I bind Satan, the ghosts (demons), powers, and forces of darkness. I bind all interaction, interplay or communication of spirits as it may affect any of the people and areas for which I am praying. I command in the name of Jesus Christ that all these satanic and demonic forces go to the feet of Jesus. I call forth and lose the Holy Spirit of God and the Holy Angels to come and cleanse every place where Satan has had a foothold in the lives and situations of any of these people and areas, and to fill each cleansed area with the life and love of Our Lord Jesus Christ, in the name of Jesus Christ.”
“In the name of Jesus Christ, I rebuke and break any curses, hexes, spells, demonic activity, or any other evil thing that has been sent against me or passed down through the generations to me or to any of the people or areas for whom I am praying.”
“I renounce and ask forgiveness for any negative inner vows made by me or by any of the people for whom I am praying. I ask that Jesus Christ release us from these negative inner vows and from any bondage, they have caused us. I take the Sword of the Spirit and cut free myself and those for whom I am praying from all generational sins, weaknesses, character defects, and cellular and genetic disorders, in the name of Jesus Christ.”
“I cut all bonds of all relationships that are not of the Lord, and put His Cross between us. We are cut free and we are free indeed (John 8:36). We are now free to become the children of God the Lord intended us to be, filled to overflowing with the power of the Holy Spirit of God, and the life and love of Jesus Christ.”
God is the divine healer and I have committed Myself 100% to do his calling for me to be involved in the Deliverance Ministry. As I do my morning/evening prayers, I have seen many times over of God’s positive influence in other people’s lives. Furthermore, I have been blessed, and honored to be a part of our local Church’s prayer team. God still is doing miracles, healings, and removing the demons in our daily lives. Lastly, I would like to ask you to keep me in prayer as I am having major surgery on 11/14/12.
