Accept Jesus Now
This is the point at which you can ask God for your deliverance in prayer. People sometimes say, “I want to pray, but I don’t know what to say”. So here is a pattern prayer for you to follow.
You will find a few blank _______ places in the pattern prayer where you need to fill in details that apply to your individual situation – specific sins, specific contacts with the occult or false religion, the names of people you need to forgive. Be sure to make this latter list as complete as possible.
Hundreds, even thousands, of people receive deliverance through this pattern of prayer. You may wish to enlist the support of a fellow Christian. But be sure the person you choose is in agreement with your decision and will be praying out of faith, not unbelief. If there are two of you, you can also claim the promise of Jesus in Matthew 18:19
Again I say unto you, That if two of you shall agree on earth as touching any thing that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven. - Matthew 18:19 KJV
Finally, do not feel bound to stick to rigidly to this pattern prayer. If the Holy Spirit prompts you to add words from your heart, do not hesitate to do so. And do not be in a hurry. Go through the whole prayer slowly and deliberately. Here is what Jesus says in Matthew 6:5-6
5 And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward. 6 But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly. - Matthew 6:5-6 KJV
– Personally affirm your faith in Christ:
“Lord Jesus Christ, I believe You are the Son of God and the only way to God – that You died on the cross for my sins and rose again so that I might be forgiven and receive eternal life.”
– Humble yourself:
“I renounce all pride and religious self-righteousness and any dignity that does not come from You. I have no claim on Your mercy except that You died in my place.”
– Confess any known sin:
“I confess all my sins before You and hold nothing back. Especially, I confess _______ “
– Repent of all sins:
“I repent of all my sins. I turn away from them and I turn to You, Lord, for mercy and forgiveness.”
– Forgive all other people:
“By a decision of my will, I freely forgive all who have ever harmed or wronged me. I lay down all bitterness, all resentment and all hatred. Specifically, I forgive _______ “
– Break with the occult and all false religion:
“I sever all contact I have ever had with the occult or with all false religion – particularly _______ I commit myself to get rid of all objects associated with the occult or false religion.”
– Prepare to be released from every curse over your life:
“Lord Jesus, I thank You that on the cross You were made a curse, that I might be redeemed from every curse and inherit God’s blessing. On that basis I ask You to release me and set me free to receive the deliverance I need.”
– Take your stand with God:
“I take my stand with You, Lord, against all Satan’s demons. I submit to You, Lord, and I resist the devil. Amen!“
“Now I speak to any demons that have control over me. [Speak directly to them] I command you to go from me now. In the name of Jesus, I expel you!”
