The main order for deliverance from a religious spirit is intercessory prayer that will soften the hardened heart of those who are in bondage to the religious spirit so they can in humility be changed.
Then the religious spirit must be confronted in a process to repent, to renounce and to break all behaviour patterns influenced by this spirit.
Here is a list of statements that can be used for deliverance as the person(s) with Godly sorrow speak them with sincerity, humility and submission to:
1. Repent And Renounce
I repent and renounce every opening, known or unknown in my generations that I have given to a religious spirit in my family line even back to the tenth generation.
I repent and renounce every opening, known and unknown in my personal life that I have given to a religious spirit, and every work of darkness connected with it.
Character of God
I repent for not fully receiving Your love, compassion, mercy, grace and forgiveness and I renounce any belief that You, Father are distant and judgmental.
I choose to embrace all aspects of Your character and to intimately know You.
I repent for allowing myself to be led by any other spirit than the Holy Spirit.
I repent for relying on my own intellect in worship, praise, prayer, reading of the Word and spiritual Warfare.
I repent and renounce all legalism, traditions and religious formulas.
I repent and renounce all participation in dead works.
I repent and renounce all dullness to the things of God.
I repent and renounce hardness of heart
I choose for the oil of Your Holy Spirit to flow across my heart.
My Behaviour Patterns
I repent and renounce placing man’s opinion of me above Yours.
I repent and renounce compromises of the truth, of my integrity and of my purity.
I repent and renounce all compromises in my attitude toward sin.
I repent for my lack of transparency for covering sin, for not confessing sin, for not receiving correction for being defensive and quick to justify and rationalise my sin.
I repent and renounce all deception and hypocrisy.
I repent and renounce all pride, arrogance and self-righteousness.
I repent and renounce all comparison, judgment, criticism, gossip, jealousy, covetousness and anger.
I repent and renounce all persecution and slander of those moving in the Holy Spirit.
I repent and renounce every act of rebellion that has reinforced the spirit of religion in my life.
I choose to have obedience as my heart attitude.
I choose to no longer partner with the same spirit that killed Jesus and that continues to attempt to kill the work of the Holy Spirit today.
I choose to no longer oppose God.
In the name of Jesus:
I break every hex, curse or vow, every spell, incantation or ritual.
I break every covenant and blood covenant, every sacrifice and blood sacrifice.
I break every ungodly soul tie, every ungodly generational tie in my family line.
I break any other legal right, known or unknown, for the spirit of religion to stay.
Spirit of religion, as the Body of Christ, I and those with me come against you:
We refuse to allow you to steal our intimate relationship with our Lord.
We refuse to allow you to kill the flow of the Holy Spirit in us.
We refuse to allow you to destroy the anointing of others through us.
We choose to receive the anointing to break the power of the spirit of religion in the Church of Jesus Christ in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
3. Proclaim The Lordship Prayer
Pray this prayer to invite Jesus to be the Lord and Master of each area of your life.
Even for some mature Christians, the only reason that the demons are still present in their lives is that Jesus is not Lord of one or more areas of their life.
Meditate on this prayer for each area of your life and ask the Holy Spirit to reveal any hidden sin(s). Repent and confess these sins thereby closing the door to these evil spirits.
Then these spirits have no legal right to remain and they must go from you, (James 4: 7-10). Then a time of refreshing shall come upon you, (Acts 3:19-20).
Lord Jesus, I confess that I have sinned and I acknowledge my need of You.
I thank You for dying on the cross for me and I accept You as my Saviour.
I invite You now to be Lord of every area of my life:
Lord of my spirit, all of my worship and my relationship with You;
Lord of my mind, all my thoughts, all my attitudes and all my behaviour;
Lord of my emotions, all my feelings and all my reactions;
Lord of my will and all my decisions;
Lord of my body and all my physical health;
Lord of my eyes and all that I look upon;
Lord of my ears and all that I listen to;
Lord of my mouth and all that I speak;
Lord of my hands and all that I do;
Lord of my feet and everywhere that I go;
Lord of my sexuality and all its expression;
Lord of my family, my entire home, all my pleasure and all my relationships; Lord of my time, all my work and all my service for You;
Lord of my material goods, all my possessions, all my finances and all my needs.
Thank Jesus that Your blood was shed that I might be set free.
You and You alone are my Lord and Master, Amen.
Now that you have repented, renounced and broken all relationships with the spirit of religion and have proclaimed Jesus as Lord of every area of your life, walk in freedom with the Holy Spirit.

The Bible is clear that God hates divorce. People can though often end up in bad situations after divorce. Although there will likely be some extreme circumstances such as abuse where it will be the best thing.
Some say there are marriage-breaking demons or to break a marriage can be a demonic assignment. Certainly demons do work at destroying relationships.
Although it is likely that may not always be possible, it is better to avoid divorce. The end result can be worse than if the couple had stayed in the marriage and had asked God to help them to put things back together again.
Especially when children are involved. The best way is to work it out. With God, miracles are very possible. There are though many testimonies of God restoring people’s marriage when it had seemed to be destroyed.
I prayed the prayer this morning and have seen a big difference in my life thanks to the Lord! I Thank you all also!
in the mighty name of jesus christ it is finished!! thank you jesus,.
Pls state scripture reference that says God hates divorce.
Sometimes it is inescapable, such as where there is severe abuse. Otherwise:
Why does God hate divorce?

God will save us all praise him for the kingdom and glory is his now and forever and we will have a place by his side
Wow this prayer just gave me life! After being under attack all of my life by this spirit… I have just now in my 30s realized that both my husband and I are victims of this spirit. I had nightmares for maybe 2 years straight and didn’t even realize how foolish I had been. Coming from a family full of Jehovah’s Witnesses on one side and Strict Baptists in the other side and then having a spirit of rejection which led to rebellion and pride and then getting caught in the Black Hebrew Israelite false doctrine which is based on immorality and pride… I basically received a Leviathan spirit where I almost renounced My Lord and Savior. I was trusting in my flesh and not in the grace and love of our Lord Jesus. I kept having dreams of dead people and I was amongst them, dreams I was in the grave, and I was not getting what God was telling me. He loved me so He warned me by His grace. Unknown people should have sex with me in my dreams which was a covenant with the spirit of religion being reinstated every time and also it bred secret anger and hatred in my heart and a feeling of superficial superiority. My husband ended up not believing at all but I tried to tell him that atheism is a product of the spirit of religion as well. They keep the same characteristics just don’t say God or consider themselves a group that believes there is no God. And that’s even silly to have to have a group to say there is no god. But its stems from rejection also and most atheists are the products of extreme religious error. So that Antichrist spirit just basically chokes the word out of them just like people who are in religious error… Same spirit. The enemy has no new tricks. So I’m here today by the GRACE OF THE GOD OF ABRAHAM, ISAAC, AND JACOB AND THE LOVE OF HIS SON JESUS CHRIST. I know now that Gods mercy is as great as His majesty. He is my everything. I thought I was in the truth but the word admonished me that I was in error and imposing my deception on others. God forgive me!!!! Here I am though set free…. If anyone is in the Black Hebrew Israelite doctrine or any doctrine that preaches a works-based salvation like Jehovah’s Witness and Seven Day Adventist and Muslim….seek God and ask Him to show you the truth. And He will. Much love to you all
I too got involved with the Hebrew Roots deceptions. And it makes you like a pharisees . You are absolutely right about the the secret hate. I am still surprised by how much hate is in me. I fell so far. Trying to reconcile the Black Israelite doctrine I believed that Paul was not an apostle. I was wrong. I have to admit. I have a demon. Several of demons and they are the real kind. The kind that speak like in the bible. I have not been set free. I keep telling myself there is no work I have to do to be free. I am bombarded with condemning feelings of Blasphemy against the Holy Spirit and Falling from grace. It is hard. Really hard.
Your so lucky you went from works to works and not grace to works. God have mercy on me.
Renunciation prayers are a form of repentance that are helpful in these types of situations and such prayers do give deliverance.
Renunciation prayers for Hebrew Roots can be found on the internet and can be gone through beforehand and personalized.
There are other renunciation prayers which would likely help, such as the following:
Prayer to Renounce Generational Family Iniquity
Hebrew Roots is strictly speaking ‘another gospel and another Jesus’ and a subtle form of witchcraft that can be very seductive and deceptive and which has deceived many. At the very least it can provide a doorway for the demonic to gain a foothold. Along with religious spirits, witchcraft, cults and religious pride, this falls in the domain of the Jezebel spirit so a prayer to renounce the Jezebel spirit would also be helpful.
Once renounced and repented for, do not worry unduly about this as the Bible says Christians can sin and make mistakes, we can backslide and lose our way and Christians can and do have demons. Only Jesus was without sin.
As to the condemnation, we should not listen to what lying demons say. This was the mistake of Eve in the Garden of Eden. Rather we should read and study the word of God as in the Bible (KJV).
“Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;” (2 Corinthians 10:5)
“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10-29)
“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9)
Hi my name is Allen Stanfield
I really enjoyed reading this and wish that somehow this entire stuff I just read here could be mailed to me to read these prayers daily to get my breakthrough I feel. This religious spirit really has me in its grip and I truly want free. Help me.
