When it comes to surface-level deliverance, we employ a simple 5-step process to getting people free. These five steps are 1.) Confess, 2.) Repent, 3.) Renounce, 4.) Bind, and 5.) Cast Out. The basic idea is that the enemy can attack our mind, will, and emotions, and under certain circumstances, can even afflict our spirit. In addition, he can use fear, trauma, negative experiences, and so forth, to program our hearts according to his paradigms. He truly stops at nothing to steal, kill, and destroy (John 10:10). When Jesus became a curse for us, he purchased the right for us to be completely free of all curses. This grants provision for freedom, but we must receive his provision by faith. The reality of our freedom exists with God, but this reality must be enforced before it truly impacts our lives.
Father God, I come before you in the mighty name of Jesus Christ because your word says if we confess our sins, you are faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness. I confess that I have (harbored/engaged in/committed) ____________________. I repent for ______________________ and I receive your grace to not turn back. I renounce ______________________ and break all agreement with it, its fruit, its children, and its presence in my life. I now bind in chains and fetters of iron every evil spirit that has been at work in and around my life because of what I have renounced. I declare that you are severed from my life, fired, and escorted to wherever the True Lord Jesus Christ sends you. Now get out! I speak that any spirits attempting to linger or resist removal are now brutally assaulted with the sword of the Lord, arrows, the hot thunderbolt of God, hailstones, tsunamis of living water, engines of war, trampling by the war horses of heaven, instruments of war, instruments of death, and the all-consuming fire of God until you relinquish your positions in and around my life. Thank you, Lord Jesus, for setting me free.
