Prayer and Proclamations – Spiritual ‘Bolt-Cutter’

Dear Heavenly Father, I come to you in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, and I renounce and turn from all lies, preconceptions, deceptions, self-deceptions and unteachableness that I or my ancestors have believed or entertained. I confess them as my sins and I ask to be cleansed from them by the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ.

I renounce all vows of secrecy and silence about all ungodly activities.

I command every lying spirit, and every spirit of deception, self-deceptions, and unteachableness and any other spirits associated with these sins to leave me now on my natural breathing and not to return to me or anyone whom I love, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Lord Jesus, you are the truth, and I surrender all these areas of my life to your Holy Spirit who is the Spirit of Truth, and whom you promised would lead me into all truth.


If you have the authority Scripture says you have, then find out the Holy Spirit’s will, and proclaim it.

Derek Prince writes there are two related words: Confession & Proclamation.

Confession means we say the same with our mouth as God has already said in His Word. Our words agree with God’s Word. “Jesus is the High Priest of our confession.” (Heb.3:1)

Proclamation is confession made aggressive: It is a word of spiritual warfare. It is releasing God’s word into a situation in our lives, the life of the church, or whatever.

1.         Proclaim!

2.         Thank!

3.         Praise!

Proclaim the appropriate Scripture with bold unwavering confidence.

To make this fully effective, we often personalise the passage we quote, making any grammatical changes needed to apply it personally to ourselves.

The second step is to accept the Scripture we have proclaimed as true, even before we see its actual outworking in any situation. The natural result of this is to thank God for it.

This leads logically to the third step: loud jubilant Praise.”

(“Prayers and Proclamations”, Dr. Derek Prince, Introduction, 1980)

First Proclamation

“No weapon that is formed against me shall prosper, and every tongue which rises against me in judgment I do condemn.

If there are those who have been speaking against me, or seeking harm or evil to me, or who have rejected me, I forgive them (name if known).

“Having forgiven them, I bless them in the name of the Lord. Now, I do declare Oh Lord, that You and You alone are my God, and besides You there is no other – a just God and a Saviour, the Father, the Son and the Spirit – and I worship you!

“I submit myself afresh to You today in unreserved obedience. Having submitted to You, Lord, I do as Your word directs: I resist the devil and all his works, all his pressures, his attacks, his deceptions, and every instrument or agent he would seek to use against me. I do not submit to him but resist, drive and exclude him from me in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

“Specifically, I reject and repel all infirmity, pain, infection, inflammation, malignancies, allergies, viruses, every form of witchcraft and every type of stress. Finally, Lord, I thank You that through the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross, I have passed out from under the curse and entered the blessing of Abraham, whom You blessed in all things: exaltation, health, reproductiveness, prosperity, victory, God’s favour and God’s friendship.”

Second Proclamation

Jesus was punished that we might be forgiven

Jesus was wounded that we might be healed

Jesus was made sin for our sinfulness that we might be made righteous with His righteousness

Jesus died our death that we might receive His life

Jesus was made a curse that we might enter in the blessing

Jesus endured poverty that we might share in His abundance

Jesus bore our shame that we might share His glory

Jesus endured our rejection that we might have His acceptance with the Father

Jesus was cut off by death that we might be joined to God eternally
