Prayer To Be Set Free
(To be prayed following ministry.)
Lord Jesus, thank you for sharing with us your wonderful ministry of healing and deliverance. Thank you for the healings we have seen and experienced today.
We realize that the sickness and evil we encounter is more than our humanity can bear. So cleanse us of any sadness, negativity or despair that we may have picked up.
If our ministry has tempted us to anger, impatience or lust, cleanse us of those temptations and replace them with love, joy and peace.
If any evil spirits have attached themselves to us or oppressed us in any way, we command you, spirits of earth, air, fire or water, of the netherworld or of nature, to depart–now–and go straight to Jesus Christ–for him to deal with us as he will.
Come Holy Spirit, renew us, fill us anew with your power, your life and your joy. Strengthen us where we have felt weak and clothe us with your light. Fill us with life.
And Lord Jesus, please, send your holy angels to minister to us and our families–guard us and protect us from all sickness, harm and accidents. (Give us a safe trip home.)
We praise you now and forever Father, Son and Holy Spirit, and we ask these things in Jesus’ Holy Name that he may be glorified. Amen.
(Prayers by Dr. Francis MacNutt.)
