If you were once a member of the Roman Catholic Church or are a descendant of someone who was, it is recommended that you pray through this prayer (and others on this blog) from your heart. Please read it through first so you know what is involved. It is best to pray this aloud with a mature Christian present, but not at all necessary. A brief pause following each paragraph wil allow the Holy Spirit to show any related issues that may require attention.
Heavenly Father, Creator of heaven and earth, I come to you in the name of Jesus Christ Your Son. I come as a sinner seeking forgiveness and cleansing from all my sins committed against you, and others made in your image. I honour my earthly father and mother and all of my ancestors of flesh and blood, and of the spirit by adoption and godparents, but I utterly turn away from and renounce all their sins. I forgive all my ancestors for the effects of their sins and iniquities on my children and me. I confess and renounce all of my own sins, known or unknown and I accept personally the sacrifice that Jesus gave Himself for me on Calvary. I renounce and rebuke Satan and every spiritual power of his affecting me and my family, in the name of Jesus Christ.
True Holy Creator God, in the name of the True Lord Jesus Christ, in accordance with Jude 8-10; Psalm 82:1 and 2 Chronicles 18, I request you to move aside all Celestial Beings, including Principalities, Powers and Rulers, and to forbid them from harassing, intimidating or retaliating against me and all participants in this ministry today.
I also ask that you prevent these beings, of whatever rank, from being permitted to send any level of spiritual evil as retaliation against any of those here, or our families, our ministries, or possessions.
I renounce and annul every covenant made with Death by my ancestors or myself, including every agreement made with Sheol, and I renounce the refuge of lies and falsehoods that have been hidden behind.
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ I renounce and forsake all ungodly involvement in Roman Catholicism by my ancestors and myself. I renounce every covenant, every blood covenant and every alliance with Roman Catholicism or the spiritual powers behind it made by my family or me. I also renounce and repent of all permission I have ever granted to be deceived, or that was granted by my parents or previous generations without my awareness or consent.
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I renounce every form of ungodly authority and all ungodly power, and I repent for submitting to all ungodly authority. I repent for my loyalty towards the Roman Catholic Church, and its Popes, Cardinals, Archbishops, Bishops and Priests when that loyalty and obedience should have been to Jesus Christ. I also repent and renounce any and all impartations I received through any laying on of hands, including by any false priesthood and all religious deception. I especially reject the false teaching and belief in the infallibility of the pope, because only God is true, and every man is a liar, according to Romans 3 verse 4.
I repent for my silence and ignorance about the Roman Catholic Church’s historical use of terror, bloodshed, torture, lies, coercion, deception, sexual immorality, fraud, control and manipulation, either directly or through the various Orders of the Church. Please heal me from any of these things that have been done to me, or that were done to others with my awareness or consent.
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I repent for believing in a church that has kept people from understanding the Holy Bible, when that has the Words of Life. I humbly request to be exempted from the punishment for adding or deducting from God’s word recorded in Revelation 22 verses 18 & 19. Please help me understand Your Word the Holy Bible, and to trust it and apply it to my life in a way that will bring glory to Your name, and benefit for my spiritual growth and maturity.
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I renounce the pagan syncretism taught alongside true Biblical teaching by the Roman Catholic Church. I reject and repent of all pagan beliefs and practices, and ask to be set free from all such pagan influences in my mind, my will, my emotions, my heart, my conscience, my imagination and my habits.
I choose to forgive everyone who has taught me false doctrine and ungodly religious practices, including the so-called ‘Sacrifice of the Mass’. I also renounce and reject the calling on the spirits of the dead to protect me that occurs at every mass. In repenting for all these, I also choose to forgive myself for my active participation or acquiescent acceptance of all such beliefs and practices, in the name of Jesus Christ. I ask for mercy on all who taught me false doctrines and practices and the conviction of the Holy Spirit of the error of their ways, and that they would discover the truth and teach that instead, in Jesus’ name.
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I renounce and repent of every form of idolatry, including the idolatry of Holy Mother Church, and any false worship and spiritual adultery I indulged in, even in my ignorance that your Word forbids such practice in Exodus 20 verse 5 and elsewhere. I choose to worship The True Creator God, revealed as Father, Son and Holy Spirit. Please teach me how to worship You in spirit and in truth.
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I repent and renounce every devotion, veneration, worship and idolatry of the Virgin Mary. I recognise and accept that Mary, otherwise known as Miriam by her Hebrew name, was a good woman chosen by God the Father to bear and bring up the Lord Jesus Christ with her husband Joseph, but that she recognised that she was a sinner needing to make a sacrifice for her personal sins, as confirmed by Luke 2:22-24, and as was the Scripture-based custom of her day. I also reject and renounce the falsely claimed Co-Mediatrix and Intercessory roles of Mary – the mother of Jesus – the Immaculate Conception of Mary, her Perpetual Virginity (despite having at least six other named children) and her Bodily Assumption into Heaven; all of which have no Biblical basis whatever, but are the doctrines of men imposed on Bible-deprived members.
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I renounce the belief in the post-death apparitions of Mary, such as the Lady of Lourdes, the Lady of Fatima, the Lady of Guadeloupe, and the Lady of Medjugorje, I reject all instructions from these and all other similar apparitions because too many of those instructions were contrary to the revealed Word of God, thereby proving the spiritism involved in these. I also reject and renounce as well the other titles including the Queen of Heaven, the Lady of Mercedes, the Lady of the Snows, the Queen of Martyrs, the Queen of Peace, and Mary, Star of the Seas, the Black Madonna of Jazna-Gora, and any other titles attributed to her.
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I repent for praying to dead people, and the necromancy and spiritism that involved, when the Holy Bible in Deuteronomy 18 verse 11 and elsewhere forbids that practice. I ask Your forgiveness for my ignorance of Your clear instructions forbidding this, Heavenly Father. I repent for all belief that dead people can answer my prayers. Please help me learn how to pray in a way that is acceptable to You.
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I repent and renounce all dedication of my life to dead saints, including Mary, and also any dedication to any organization, including the Roman Catholic Church. In cancelling that now, I choose to dedicate my life to the Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of the Living God and to the purposes of His Kingdom.
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I repent, renounce and cut off all ungodly soul ties and connections with any dead saints that I have been dedicated to or chosen for me in my ignorance of Your Word, the Holy Bible. I repent for every time I asked any dead saint to pray on my behalf, since this practice is also forbidden in the Bible. I repent for every honour I ever performed to any dead saint where such honour was inconsistent with the Bible and God’s revealed will. I ask to be set free from all confusion that praying to saints has caused, and the spiritism this involved, and I request the removal of all harmful influence they have had over my life.
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I repent, and renounce all trust in dedicated objects, including medals, scapulars, statues, sacred heart posters and paintings, the rosary beads, holy water, votive candles, sacred relics and any kissing or bowing to any alleged sacred object or novenas.
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I repent, and renounce all trust in any ‘sacrament’ that does not have a solid Biblical basis, including infant baptism, confirmation, first communion or Eucharist, confession, penance and extreme unction.
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I renounce all beliefs that are contrary to Your revealed Word and will, and I ask for You to renew my mind and my heart, and to help me recognise all false teaching and beliefs when I hear or see them. Please protect me from all spiritual deception, regardless of source, in Jesus’ name. I also repent for trusting in rituals and objects and attributing power to them, instead of trusting Your love for me and relying on Your power, Your love and Your faithfulness.
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I reject and repent of the shameless use of indulgences to obtain money from members of the Roman Catholic Church by priests by fraud, with false and unsubstantiated promises of quicker release from the imaginary place of the dead called Purgatory, or of the falsely promised cancellation of sins. Lord Jesus, I choose and seek Your assistance by Your Holy Spirit for righteous behaviour and motives whenever I deal with issues of money and property.
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I reject, repent and renounce every form of sexual immorality, perversion, paedophilia, seduction, rape, the killing of babies and the hypocrisy involved in the Roman Catholic Churchby priests and members of other orders over their church members and all others that has been allowed for hundreds of years. I also reject the enforced celibacy of clergy, priests and nuns, as that is not a requirement for ministry to Jesus Christ in the Holy Bible. I repent of every sexual sin that I have committed by thought, word, imagination or deed, in Jesus’ name. Holy Spirit, please help me to resist every form of sexual sin and give me a pure heart I so may bring glory to the Lord Jesus Christ by my conduct.
Lord God, I thank you for freedom of conscience. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I repent of serving a church that required people to fast through legalism, and that killed people for eating meat during Lent, and I reject the coercion of the Roman Catholic priests to live under such legalism. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I repent for every instance where I tried to violate the free will of others.
I thank you Heavenly Father, for the ability to discern the difference between the truth of Your revealed will through the Holy Bible and the doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church where these differ from your Word. In any way I cannot see these differences, please enable me to recognise all error and false teaching. I especially renounce and repent of ever believing the anti-Biblical teachings of transubstantiation, purgatory, and that my salvation may only be obtained by being baptised into membership of the Roman Catholic Church as an infant. In rejecting these false teachings, I choose to trust in the Lord Jesus Christ, and what He did for me on the Cross of Calvary, in His birth, death and resurrection, and ask to have my name recorded in the Lamb’s Book of Life (Revelation 21:27). Consequently, I ask to be exempted from the plagues and the rejection by You based on Revelation 22 verses 18 and 19.
Heavenly Father and true holy Creator God, I thank You for helping me live in the freedom that Christ died for me and that is provided by your Holy Spirit. Help me to grow into a strong, mature and fruitful follower of Your Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you for your goodness, faithfulness, mercy and love towards me. Teach me your ways that I may walk strongly on your paths designed by you for me to walk. Be glorified through my life, and show your love and character through me, that others may see Jesus in me.
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I also renounce, cut off and dissolve in the blood of Jesus Christ every ungodly Soul-tie I or my ancestors have created with other Roman Catholics or participants in occultic groups and actions, and I ask you to send out ministering angels to gather together all portions of my fragmented soul, to free them from all bondages and to wash them clean in the Blood of Jesus Christ, and then to restore them to wholeness to their rightful place within me. I also ask that You remove from me any parts of any other person’s soul which has been deposited within my humanity. Thank you Lord for restoring my soul and sanctifying my spirit.
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I renounce and rebuke every evil spirit associated with Roman Catholicism, spiritism, occultic mysticism and all other sins and iniquities involved. Lord Jesus, I ask you to now set me free from all spiritual and other bondages, in accordance with the many promises of the Bible. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I now take the delegated authority given to me and bind every spirit of sickness, infirmity, curse, affliction, addiction, disease or allergy associated with these sins I have confessed and renounced, including every spirit empowering all iniquities inherited from my family.
I exercise the delegated authority from the Risen Lord Jesus Christ over all lower levels of evil spirits and demons which have been assigned to me, and I command that all such demonic beings are to be bound up into one, to be separated from every part of my humanity, whether perceived to be in the body or trapped in the dimensions, and they are not permitted to transfer power to any other spirits or to call for reinforcements.
In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I command every evil spirit to leave me now, touching or harming no-one, and go to the dry place appointed for you by the Lord Jesus Christ, never to return to me or my family, and I command that you now take all your memories, roots, scars, works, nests and habits with you. I surrender to God’s Holy Spirit and to no other spirit all the places in my life where these sins and iniquities have been.
Holy Spirit, I ask that you show me anything else that I need to do or to pray so that my family and I may be totally free from the consequences of the sins of Roman Catholicism, Witchcraft, Spiritism and all related Paganism and Occultism.
[Pause, while listening to God, and pray as the Holy Spirit leads you.]
Father, I ask humbly for the blood of Jesus Christ, your Son and my Saviour, to cleanse me from all these sins I have confessed and renounced, to cleanse my spirit, my soul, my mind, my emotions and every part of my body which has been affected by these sins, in the name of Jesus Christ. I also command every cell in my body to come into divine order now, and to be healed and made whole as they were designed to by my loving Creator, including restoring all chemical imbalances and neurological functions, controlling all cancerous cells, reversing all degenerative diseases, and I sever the DNA and RNA of any mental or physical diseases or afflictions that came down through my family blood lines. I also ask to receive the perfect love of God that casts out all fear, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.
I ask you, Lord, to fill me with your Holy Spirit now according to the promises in your Word. I take to myself the whole armour of God in accordance with Ephesians Chapter Six, and rejoice in its protection as Jesus surrounds me and fills me with His Holy Spirit. I enthrone you, Lord Jesus, in my heart, for you are my Lord and my Saviour, the source of eternal life. Thank you, Father, for your mercy, your forgiveness and your love, in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
