After we accept Christ as our saviour we can renounce our past involvement with any works of darkness. We can take it further even renouncing works of darkness by our ancestors.
Renunciation prayers are a form of repentance which can give deliverance. Repenting of our sins can help to cleanse us from unrighteousness but renunciation of the sins of our ancestors can help to release us from the effects of their sins and inquity.
Specific prayers to renounce freemasonry, witchcraft and the occult, etc. can be found on this site and elsewhere on the internet. Some are long but worth saying as they only need to be said once.
This prayer though could be said from time to time as part of our spiritual warfare, to help close demonic doorways, and tear down demonic strongholds. (More information on these important subjects can be found on Google.) Remember that demons get a toehold, a foothold, a stronghold and then a stranglehold.
Renunciation prayers are best said aloud, and for women with their head covered. If you want to, it could be helpful to go through this beforehand and make your own version, including specific names, etc.
