Deliverance Prayer for Casting out Demons from Yourself

To Read Aloud For Casting Demons Out of Yourself

(Note to the reader: When it’s all over and the spirit goes out, ask again if there are any more spirits left in you. If yes, continue reading. If all are gone, you can stop reading and go right to the prayer of thanks at the end. Words in red are directions, words in black are to read out loud. You should have a strong Christian that you trust with you to take over reading in case you can’t continue.)

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and with the blood of Jesus, I bind any demons in me in heaven and on Earth, in Jesus’ name and with his power and authority.  Joel 2:32 says, “And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord shall be delivered.”

I believe that Jesus is the Son of God and the only way to God and that he died on the cross for my sins and were resurrected so that I might be forgiven and saved.

It is not through my actions but through Jesus’ sacrifice as my personal savior and God’s grace that I have been saved. As a true Christian, I serve God completely to do His will.

I renounce all pride.  I confess and repent of all my sins before You, Lord, and ask Your forgiveness. I also confess these sins that I have never confessed before:(list any secret sins here) .

I forgive everyone who has done wrong to me. I forget resentments and grudges against all people. I forgive these people that I have not forgiven before: (list people not forgiven before here) , since the Bible says that no one’s sins can be forgiven unless they forgive others.

I renounce all involvement I have ever had with the occult and false religion, including fortune tellers, witch craft, magic and sorcery. I will throw away all items I have associated with these things which God hates.

Galatians 3:13 tells us that on the cross Jesus was made a curse that we might be redeemed from every curse. “Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: “Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree.””

Based on Jesus’ sacrifice, I ask You to release me from any curses upon me or my family and set me free to receive the deliverance that I need from Satan and his demons.

Father, please forgive me for any sins that my ancestors committed and break any generational curses.

I take my stand with you, God, against Satan and all his demons. Jesus, please come into my heart and cleanse me with your blood. I submit to you, Lord, and resist the devil and he will flee. Amen!

Now, you evil spirit that is in me – I’m talking to you now. I am speaking to any demons that are in or have control over me. What is your name? In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I command you to answer me.

(Wait for answer.)

When and how did you enter me? I command you to answer me by the authority of the Lord Jesus Christ.

(Wait for answer. If it tells you how it entered, you must renounce that event out loud and repent.)

(Demon’s name), I command you to leave me now. I cast you and all other demons out of me in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and the One True Almighty God. You must leave me now- I am a house of God. I rebuke you evil spirits in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and I cast you out by the authority of God and the power of the Holy Spirit.

(If they don’t go out, get down on your knees and pray this:)

Dear God, I am Your servant and want to be free from evil spirits. I want to serve you and beg you to drive out these evil ones from my body and keep them away. Please send an angel to fight for me and the Holy Spirit to fill me so that there is no stronghold left for any demons to enter me. Please Lord by your holy Name and authority and Jesus’ sacrifice and Name, expel these demons from me at once. In Jesus’ name, Amen

(You may have to keep praying until it works or you get too tired to continue. You may keep repeating the following line before and after reading scriptures aloud:)

I rebuke you evil spirits in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and I cast you out by the authority of God and the power of the Holy Spirit.

(Here are some scriptures you can read aloud about deliverance):

“Our God is a God of salvation, and to GOD, the Lord, belong deliverances from death.”  -Psalm 68:20, ESV

“Rescue the weak and needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.” – Psalm 82:4, NIV

“I will say to the LORD, “My refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” For he will deliver you from the snare of the fowler and from the deadly pestilence.” -Psalm 91:2-3, ESV

“You are a hiding place for me; you preserve me from trouble; you surround me with shouts of deliverance.” Psalm 32: 7, ESV

“Yes, and the Lord will deliver me from every evil attack and will bring me safely into his heavenly Kingdom. All glory to God forever and ever! Amen.” – 2 Timothy 4:18, NLT

Prayer of Thanks

Thank you Lord Jesus and Almighty God for delivering me from the evil one! You are faithful and true and always take care of me. Please protect me from Satan and his demons. Please keep them away from me, out of my mind, out of my dreams, away from my home, away from my body, out of my body, and away from my family.

I am a dwelling place only for You, Your son Jesus, and Your Holy Spirit. There is no room for evil in this house. Please heal my body from these spirits’ damage and rid me of any strongholds allowing them to come back.

Praise You, Lord for delivering me! Your power surpasses all other. Please send an angel to guard over me and fill me with your Holy Spirit so that I stay full of you always and the evil ones are not able to return. Help me to always resist the devil and he will flee from me. In Jesus’ name, Amen

    Hi, I just finished reading the prayer and I want to say thank you for caring about other people and about the Lord Jesus.
    Being human leaves us a lot of room for error and Satan will take advantage of any tiny hold that is left open for him.
    It’s good to know that there are people who don’t even know me that will be there for me.

  4. Stopped by to visit. I encourage you to visit my website because I have free deliverance manuals to read for free !

      Vickie,
      You’ve provided a lot of information about your situation. We know that Satan and the demons use people to abuse others, especially children. This can leave a stronghold, or opening, for demons to come and go. Yes, demons like to follow people and families, and it is not surprising that they are causing your children trouble too. The deliverance prayer is one you need to repeat until the demons are gone from you. You may need to call every church in your local phone book asking if they help with deliverance and casting out of demons before you find one. This is important – don’t give up!

      You’ll need other strong Christians with you to go through this process if they have such a strong hold on you that has lasted so long. Yes, demons attack saved believers the most because we pose the most threat to the enemy. Make sure you are reading the bible constantly, praying, meditating on the word, attending church, and all other ways to fill yourself with God to keep the demons from coming back.

      God be with you and I wish you the best. I will keep you in my prayers.

    @Robert: To find someone in Sacramento, the best way is to start calling Christian churches (not Catholic) in the phone book and asking if they do deliverance (casting out of demons). It may take a while to find someone locally, but be persistent.

    Also, you can check out the book They Shall Expel Demons by Derek Prince which will be very helpful.

    Plus, you should be reading the gospels and the book of Acts and Romans a lot; they’ll give you a good education in dealing with spirits. I hope this helps!

    @Paul: Not wanting to go to church can be caused my many different reasons. I recommend that you pray for your girlfriend that God will put it in her heart to want to know Him. I wish you the best!

  12. Dangerous But Good - August 21, 2011

    @Regina: Bless you! I’m so happy to have been able to help. As Christians we all need to be there for each other and we can accomplish so much. With much love in Christ

  13. how do you know it’s gone?

  14. I had an experience lastnight, a very bad one. I haven’t been a devoted Christian for a long time unfortunetly. I woke up and told my wife what had happened. Wasn’t sure if I was losing it or not. This was the first site I found and let me tell you everything that happened was on this site, everything! What really astonished me was that I haven’t said the Lords Prayer in years, in my experience last night I spoke the Lords Prayer and that drove away the demon instantly and I felt safe and peaceful. I’m going to live the way God wants me to. Thanks .

  15. Hi Danielle,
    I’ve been having issues with demons for a long time now … but, I have tried a few of those delivrances prayers and renouncing ..and there are demons who continue manifesting constantly .. I’ve called a pastor to help me in the delivrance prayer . He helped me in all the renounciation stuff and even ask the demons for his name and the demon wouldn’t tell … is it necessary to have discernment of the spirits to cast demons or any christian can cast out demons knowing his name in the name of Jesus ..Even I read the bible everyday and I am a monitor of a prayer group. I have a demon… My pastor is willing to help and I prayed and fasted a lot , I’ve never been shown something or what I did or a clue to what might have been that door as I confessed everything before the lord … What do you suggest, Danielle ..?

  16. i realy like your powerful words of deliverance but wat if the demon kept quiet and does not respond to our comand what then can we do.
