Are others trying to control you? Try these deliverance prayers

In a recent article, Michael Brown over at Spirit Daily asks, "Do you have friends or co-workers or relatives who have the wrong impression of you or want to control or shape you or enter your life in a way that's not in God's plan? This frequently occurs: people even seek to become members of immediate families and use guilt as the way of infiltrating -- making you feel wrong when you don't allow them a certain closeness because that level of closeness feels uncomfortable. But hear this: if you're unsettled -- if your spirit feels uncomfortable (if the inner "you" is restless) -- heed that feeling more than words and especially more than any words from whoever is trying to exert control over you! Remember that there are certain people who are meant as trials in our lives and we escape their sting only by praying for them."

There are all too many people today (and sadly many of them profess to be Catholic) who want to control others.  While the devout Catholic prays "Thy will be done," such unhappy people cannot pray this and really mean it.  Defending Catholic teaching is not about control.  It is insisting that Jesus' will be followed.  Because the Magisterial teaching of the Church represents the MIND OF CHRIST!

I often encounter individuals who attempt to control me, either through guilt or by ostracizing me, into abandoning my orthodoxy.  This is a favorite tactic of modernists and "progressives" within the Church.  It reflects a spiritual, intellectual, and emotional immaturity.  When others attempt to control you, try praying these deliverance prayers:

Prayer to Remove Trafficking People

Dear Lord Jesus, will you please send a special assignment of warring angels to remove all spiritually trespassing people from me. In the name, power and authority of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth who came in the flesh, I cancel all astral assignments over my life. I take dominion over all astral assignments of witchcraft sent against me, and I break their hold right now through the power of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Dear Lord Jesus, please have your warring angels strip these witches of their psychic powers, demonic powers and occult powers. Please strip them of psychic visions, powers of divination, and any other craft that allows them to interfere with me. Please have all their powers and devices destroyed and cast into the abyss.

I ask you to bring these people before your throne and bless them with a revelation of who you are and your love and plans of salvation for them. Please show them how they are being deceived by Satan. Please have your warriors send them back to their own bodies and seal them there with your blood, Lord Jesus. I thank you for establishing an impenetrable shield of protection all around me; in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Binding Evil Spirits

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I stand with the power of the Lord God Almighty to bind Satan and all his evil spirits, demonic forces, satanic powers, principalities, along with all kings and princes of terrors, from the air, water, fire, ground, netherworld, and the evil forces of nature.

I take authority over all demonic assignments and functions of destruction sent against me, and I expose all demonic forces as weakened, defeated enemies of Jesus Christ. I stand with the power of the Lord God Almighty to bind all enemies of Christ present together, all demonic entities under their one and highest authority, and I command these spirits into the abyss to never again return. Their assignments and influences are over.

I arise today with the power of the Lord God Almighty to call forth the heavenly host, the holy angels of God, to surround and protect, and cleanse with God’s holy light all areas vacated by the forces of evil. I ask the Holy Spirit to permeate my mind, heart, body, soul and spirit, creating a hunger and thirst for God’s holy Word, and to fill me with the life and love of my Lord, Jesus Christ.

Destroying Demonic Influence

Through the power of Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I come against every source of sin in my life. I ask you Lord Jesus to send forth an assignment of warring angels to strike down and destroy every demonic entity that has been influencing my sinful behaviors of envy, criticism, impatience, resentment, pride, rebellion, stubbornness, unforgiveness, gossip, disobedience, strife, violence, divorce, accusation, anger, manipulation, jealousy, greed, laziness, revenge, coveting, possessiveness, control, retaliation, selfishness, deceitfulness, deception, dishonesty, unbelief, seduction, lust, pornography, masturbation, idolatry and witchcraft.

May your warring angels strike down and destroy every demonic influence that has contributed to my physical and psychological infirmities of nerve disorder, lung disorder, brain disorder or dysfunction, AIDS, cancer, hypochondria, hyperactivity, depression, schizophrenia, fatigue, anorexia, bulimia, addictions, gluttony, perfectionism, alcoholism, self-abuse, sexual addictions, sexual perversions, attempted suicide, incest, pedophilia, lesbianism, homosexuality, adultery, confusion, ignorance, procrastination, self-hatred, isolation, loneliness, ostracism, paranoia, nervousness, passivity, indecision, doubt, oppression, rejection,
poor self-image, anxiety, shame, timidity and fear.

I arise today through the power of the Lord Jesus Christ and ask to be filled with the Holy Spirit’s gifts of peace, patience, love, joy, kindness, generosity, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control, humility, forgiveness, goodness, fortitude, discipline, truth, relinquishment, good self-image, prosperity, charity, obedience, a sound mind, order, fulfillment in Christ, acceptance of self, acceptance of others, trust, freedom from addictions, freedom of having-to-control, freedom from shame, wholeness, wellness, health, wisdom, knowledge, understanding, and the light and life of the Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

The choice is ours: Will we follow Christ's Will - as made known through the Magisterial teaching of the Church?  Or will we prefer our own will while trying to control and manipulate others?  Is ours a spirit of humility or pride and domination?

Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty.  Where the spirit of pride and self-will is (the spirit of Antichrist) there is oppression.
