Discerning, Removing and Avoiding the Spirit of Divination (also known as the python spirit):

Now I am not trying to scare you, I am trying to prepare you for the public life with your ministry or calling. You must have this understanding so you know how to properly and effectively deal with it. It’s called a spirit of divination or “python” spirit.
I would not include it in this chapter if I did not think it was crucially important. I want you to be properly equipped. Jesus warned His disciples to be wise to these things.
As soon as you launch out into the public for the Kingdom there is a sneaky evil spirit that will try to mess with you.
You may even be dealing with it right now so let me teach you how to discern it and get rid of it. This spirit is very rampant in our society and we as leaders must be aware.
In 2 Corinthians 2:11 Paul said; “Lest satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.”
I want you to be welcoming of people who want to help you when you launch out in public, BUT you must also be wise that the enemy looks for a way in to stop you or hinder you through wrong relationships. He will try to send a person who is operating in this demonic spirit to infiltrate your inner circle and you must know how you discern this – the bigger the impact you will have for the Kingdom – the more this evil spirit tries to sneak in!
I want you to love people and I don’t want you to be paranoid at every person you meet that they might be operating with a spirit of divination – that’s why you must be careful to discern properly. I have had this spirit try to infiltrate my business and ministry at least three times! The more my ministry and name grew publicly the more it seemed this spirit was trying to attack. Two were women and one was a man. It is not gender specific!
Now please don’t be saying, “Gee, Annamarie if there is a chance I might get an attack from the enemy when I launch out in public with my ministry or purpose for the Kingdom, then I’m not gonna do it.”
Listen to me! You can get attacks and open a door to the enemy just sitting at home and watching the wrong shows on TV!
Your desire to be obedient to God and your calling for the Kingdom should be so passionate that you will not worry about this at all and I am going to equip you right now to discern it, destroy it and keep it away for good!
First, let’s get discernment on the evil Spirit of Divination…
There is a very deceptive spirit that has been operating in the world especially at this time and it’s an anti-christ spirit. A lot of people who you may know and many around us in society are under the deception of this spirit. It’s based in witchcraft and the occult and stems from idolatry. It’s been operating in all the 7 Mountains of Influence. One of the sneaky evil spirits that operate under the anti-christ spirit is the spirit of divination. It’s like a python and it targets those who are powerfully and boldly representing the Kingdom of God in these 7 mountains. The spirit of divination tends to target ministry leaders and those in ministry with a prophetic gifting. It sneaks in looking like it’s harmless and even flattering OR acts like a “copycat” then slowly works to squeeze you into shutting down and quitting.
Now, let’s reveal the Spirit of Divination also known as the Python Spirit …
The Apostle Paul dealt with this spirit early on in his ministry when he entered the Greek city of Philippi:
Acts 16:16-20
(KJV) “And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying; The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation. And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour. And when her masters saw that the hope of their gains was gone, they caught Paul and Silas, and drew them into the marketplace unto the rulers, And brought them to the magistrates, saying, These men, being Jews, do exceedingly trouble our city,”
The SPIRIT OF DIVINATION is someone that will placate you when they think things go their way and try to destroy you when it doesn’t. You would never know that they are if you were giving them everything they wanted. They expose themselves in different ways.
You have a mission to complete! A mission from God and cannot let anyone hinder that or try to distract that no matter who they are! This spirit has to be exposed early before it does too much damage.
You take authority over that spirit operating through them and you set boundaries with them. Even if they are “friends”. Some may even say they are “christians”. These are people with wicked spirits operating through them. Understand it’s not the person, it’s the spirit operating through them!
These are the Signs of the spirit of divination or “python” spirit operating in a person that wants to be around you and your ministry or your Kingdom purpose:
  • Gives you flattery in the beginning to pull you in – almost like a groupie or “I am your biggest fan”
  • Wants what you have but not willing to learn or work for it
  • “Acts” like they have the same gifting you have and begins to mimic you to pull your followers to them
  • Hogs up your time away from others
  • Begins to constantly pull attention to themselves in your public setting and away from your message for the Lord
  • Constantly telling you what you should do in your ministry and pushing you away from pursuing God’s guidance and they wanting to be your only ‘guide’
  • Squeezed feeling of pressure that comes on you after you have started listening to them or agreeing with them, you may even begin to experience shortness of breath, and difficulty swallowing
  • Wants you to do everything their way – gets easily hurt or offended
  • Works behind the scenes to pull people to “their side” to put pressure on you to do what they want
  • They focus on dividing you away from your people and your people away from you
  • May have been involved in witchcraft or new age practices and never got fully delivered (you will see the signs – on their social media – take the time to check them out and what they post)
  • In group settings, they are not eager to pray for anyone else’s issues – they want most of the prayer for themselves
  • Tries to prophesy over your followers and counter what God has spoke to you over them without your consent (if you have a prophetic ministry)
  • Usually avoids communion time, and any type of worship of Jesus – more drawn to the supernatural stuff
  • Trying to compare you and your ministry to what everyone else is doing – telling you should do that
  • Crying, weeping alot and using guilt to manipulate you, wants to have access to you even at night to pull you away from family
  • Usually a ‘loner’ type person. Has trouble with relationships has been through many churches
  • Focused on getting constant prophetic words and squeezing/pressuring you to give them every day to them – gets overly needy
  • Never carries out what you advise them to do – you see no fruit, just more drama
  • When they tire you out they try to act in your place, and influence your people and followers
  • Sometimes they act like a ‘prophet’ and giving false prophetic words that are coming from familiar spirits instead of the Holy Spirit
  • Tells you they have “angels” talking to them all the time but they do not have a relationship with the Holy Spirit
  • Thrives in constant drama and strife
  • Brags how they told-off church leaders, pastors or people of authority
  • Usually shows up at a time you are close to a breakthrough
  • When you try to use boundaries with them they get offended and accuse you of not being a loving Christian
  • They profess love for you, but are always questioning your message and your strategies (a person truly sent by God would resonate and support your message and respect you and your strategies.)
Understand the spirit of divination partners with the religious spirit and it will find others operating with a religious spirit to try and gang up on you and accuse you of ruining things for them, and not being caring or loving Christian if you call out their behavior. You must be careful to keep your emotions in check.
Observe all this wisely, stay calm and prepare to strike this down behind the scenes, do not get caught up is the drama around this person.
So what do you do about this situation? What if this person has embedded themselves in your life, business and ministry? How can you deal with this spirit and still love them? How do you discern this before it takes over and squeezes you until you are so distracted you cannot fully function for the Lord and your calling then your faith is struggling?
When you have faith, even as small as a mustard seed you don’t have to compromise ‘put up with’ anything or anybody that comes against your faith! Jesus Christ is the author and finisher of your faith only! What you do with your faith and calling in this life nobody has any right to try and change, attack, question, force their will, squeeze or twist it in any way!


Jesus gave you AUTHORITY to destroy and crush anything that would come against you!
“Listen carefully: I have given you authority [that you now possess] to tread on serpents and scorpions, and [the ability to exercise authority] over all the power of the enemy (satan); and nothing will [in any way] harm you.” – Luke 10:19 (AMP)
What did the Apostle Paul do? He took authority over the spirit of divination/python operating through the girl and commanded it to leave! He did not rebuke the girl, he rebuked the evil spirit.
Paul discerned it quickly and nipped it in the bud! How did Paul discern it? Read the scripture – the girl kept on pressuring him and even drawing attention to herself while Paul was trying to preach the Gospel, something Paul did to bring “Good News” to a new town. He was usually filled with the joy of the Lord doing this – however when this girl was around it says: “But Paul, being grieved”…. (that’s the opposite of joy!)
Paul began to feel grieved in the spirit – that means this evil spirit was coming against the work of the HOLY SPIRIT operating through Paul!
This is exactly what I went through when I had this happen to me and let me tell you – you will feel this too if you have this situation. The python/divination spirit will cause you to feel grieved, frustrated, and distracted. Even stressed and depressed. Pressure comes around your throat and heaviness on your chest – you begin to feel weary and do not feel like moving forward. If this persists it could cause you to question what you are doing, maybe that person could do it better, blah blah blah… this gets worse the more you agree with this evil lying spirit.
I want you to understand something – people can try to copy you, try to steal your ideas, try to do what you do – but they can never do what God gifted you to do just like you. Never.
People will try to steal your special “recipe”, but it will not taste the same when they try to use it without your anointing! Stay focused even when an attack like this would come. The best thing you can do is stand and not be shaken one bit.
Stay focused on the words of Jesus Christ when discerning relationships. Is it building up and creating abundance? Or tearing down?
Jesus made it clear how to discern what was from Him and what was not in John 10:10: “The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I [Jesus] came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).”
The spirit of divination will try to play with your emotions, make you feel unsettled, unfocused and try to trip up your work in public and pressure you to make you quit. They will try to shadow your light. It wants to tear down what you are building. You cannot allow it!! You have to take authority over it ASAP and here are the steps.
How To Take Authority Against The Spirit of Divination:
1.) If the person is being overly difficult you do not have to confront them. You can take care of this all in the Spirit realm in prayer. Remember it’s not the person, it’s the evil spirit operating through them.
2.) Suit Up – Get on your Armor of God, Take Your Seat of Authority and Apply The Blood Of Jesus to yourself, your family, your ministry and your business.
2.) Forgive the person who is doing this and repent for any bitterness or offense you have toward them, ask Jesus to wash your sins in His blood and put all offense and bitterness on the Cross. Ask God to bless the person you are forgiving and for the Holy Spirit to go to them and lead them fully to Christ and remove all veils of deception from their eyes of understanding and bring them to deliverance. If we do not forgive them, the accuser can use our unforgiveness against us and the evil spirit will still have a legal right to operate.
3.) You can ask God to remove the person and all their influence out of your business and ministry with His “Ax Of Judgement”. Do this prayer after you have forgiven the person. If you can clearly see that this individual is not there to produce good fruit for you or anyone else, you can stand on the word of God in this situation. Jesus said we would know them by their fruit, and the bad fruit is to be removed. Relationships in the bible are mentioned like trees that either produce good fruit or bad fruit. Fruit coming from a relationship should always bear the fruit of the Holy Spirit, if not, that relationship will be removed by God. You must be able to bear good fruit in all your relationships for the Kingdom. If any relationship is clearly coming against that, such as those operating in divination you can pray this powerfully…
The Ax Of God’s Judgment Prayer is based on Matthew 3:10 – “Even now the ax of God’s judgment is poised, ready to sever the roots of the trees. Yes, every tree that does not produce good fruit will be chopped down and thrown into the fire.”
Pray: “FATHER GOD your word says in Matthew 3:10, now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Father I believe your word and I want to activate it right now in the spiritual and in the natural in my life and in all my relationships! I do not have to accept anything that is not the will of God for my life and my family, ministry and business. I BELIEVE The word of God is the will of God! I DECREE As for me and my house we shall Honor and Obey the word and the will of God and serve the Lord Jesus Christ for all generations thereof! Father in the name of Jesus Christ, I ask You to take your Ax Of Judgement and permanently remove any ungodly relationships around me swiftly, particularly ____________ in Jesus name! Chop these ungodly relationships and influences at the root, pull the stumps up out of the ground, shake the stumps with no roots remaining in the ground and cast this relationship and any influence it had into the fire to burn to ashes in Jesus name! I will never eat fruit from this ungodly relationship again! Father let all remaining influence from this relationship be burned up forever by your Holy fire in Jesus name. Let this be swift and calm, with no recourse or backlash, let your Holy Fire burn up any bad seed left from this ungodly relationship and it’s the relationship that is removed and burned to ashes and all their influence and not the person. I have prayed for the person to move on and into what you have for them Lord, but far away from me and my ________in Jesus name! Thank you Father for your word and your promises and the ability to discern good and bad fruit! Father replace any bad ungodly relationships with Holy Spirit filled relationships to bear good fruit together for your Kingdom and Glory in Jesus name, Amen!”
Now, sever all soul ties with that person: Declare: “By the Authority of Jesus Christ I break the power of and SEVER off ALL the demonic and ungodly strongholds, agreements and soul ties off myself and _________________ FOREVER IN JESUS NAME, I NOW WASH MYSELF AND __________ IN THE BLOOD OF JESUS AND INVITE THE HOLY SPIRIT TO COME AND FILL THOSE PLACES IN MYSELF AND __________________ WHERE THE OLD SOUL TIES HAVE DEPARTED IN JESUS NAME”
4.) Get the python removed off you if you have been getting a ‘smothering or choking feeling’. I would still do this prayer either way.
Stand and Pray: In the name and authority of Jesus Christ I command the python spirit to drop off my body and on the floor in Jesus mighty name! Python spirit, I renounce you and all your evil and I command you off me and under my feet right now in Jesus name! Drop off me NOW python! I take authority over you in the name above all names, Jesus Christ! Drop NOW to the ground in Jesus name! ( then take a breath and raise your sword of the spirit…..) “In the name of Jesus Christ I crush the head of the python spirit (stomp your foot on its head in the spirit) and I take my sword of the spirit and chop this python to pieces! (make a chopping motion on the floor below you) I chop you up python! Your head was crushed by the Cross of Jesus Christ and I crush you! You have been cursed by God you vile python spirit and I curse you and destroy you to pieces! You will never touch me again python! I scrape your chopped carcass into the fire of God to be burned to ashes (do a scraping motion with your sword of the spirit) and let the breath of the Holy Spirit of the Living God to blow what is left of you python into the dry uninhabited place where you will stay forever in Jesus name! I raise up my sword of the spirit and let the Fire of the Holy Spirit cleanse my sword! Let the fresh breath of the Holy Spirit fill my lungs! I breathe you in the Holy Spirit in Jesus name. I am free and delivered from python forever! Holy Spirit I ask you to pour fresh oil on me, so much oil that no python can ever attach to me again, it will slide off me because of the abundance of anointing in Jesus name! I declare I move free, breathe free, in the natural and in the spiritual and whom Christ has set free is free indeed! I am fully free in Christ Jesus! I place myself mind, body, soul and spirit in the blood of Jesus Christ forever! Through the blood of Jesus Christ I am redeemed from all evil and set apart for the plans and purposes of the Kingdom of God and nothing shall come against it in Jesus mighty name!”
5). Ask for God to assign and station “Sentry Angels” at the gates of your business and ministry to block these evil spirits.
Decree: “In the name and authority of Jesus Christ in whom I am seated, I thank You Father that you send your angels to keep me in all my ways. I ask You Father God to release to me Sentry Angels that will protect all my gateways. Thank You Father God. Therefore, in Jesus name and authority, I command and post my divinely assigned Sentry Angels of the Lord to these gateway areas to my ___________ both in the natural gates and the spiritual gates to my ________, including all gates to all the gates of communication, phones, computers, internet, social media, email and websites that I have. I command the Sentry Angels of the Lord that I have just posted to these specific areas to stand and protect these areas from all evil with fiery swords and shields 24 hours a day, seven days a week from this day forward in Jesus name! I command my Sentry Angels of the Lord, to not allow anything that is not of God to enter or come near any of my gates in Jesus name. I apply the Blood of Jesus Christ to all my gateways to my ____________ in the natural and in the spiritual. All my gates belong to Jesus Christ! I ask my Sentry Angels of the Lord to also go and locate, arrest, bind and remove any evil spirits that may have come in my gates and block those evil spirits from ever coming in or coming near my gates or near me ever again! I renounce those evil spirits, especially the spirit of divination is strictly prohibited from entering or coming near me my ___________ or my gates from this day forward in Jesus name! Thank you Sentry Angels of the Lord for your obedience and faithfulness to God and thank you Father for my authority in Christ Jesus to receive and command my assigned Angels of your Kingdom, for your glory forever and ever, Amen!”
Do these steps until you see the breakthrough!
It’s crucial that you do not waiver or let this spirit of divination/python manipulate you for too long! It comes against the good fruit that you are meant to produce for the Kingdom of God!
Ask God to release His Holy Fire into you:
Pray: “In the name and authority of Jesus Christ, I renounce and come out of agreement with all religious spirits and words and out of agreement with all spirits of divination and words and command them off of my mind, body, soul and spirit right now in Jesus name! LEAVE ME NOW YOU VILE SPIRITS! I send the fire of the Holy Spirit against you! Get out and go to the uninhabited dry place and stay there until Jesus Christ comes and tells you where to go and never come near me again! I close the door to these evil, vile spirits and seal it with the blood of Jesus Christ forever! I invite the Fire of The Holy Spirit of Almighty God to come in me now and burn in every place in me and around me to destroy any remnant of these evil spirits and refine me and make me excellent of soul with your DUNAMIS power Holy Spirit in Jesus name. Holy Spirit I ask You to fill every place in me and stand hold there forever! I declare a divine wall of Holy Spirit Fire is now around me protecting me and if any evil spirit tries to pass through this wall of Holy Fire they will be burned up to ashes in Jesus Mighty name!” Amen
You will begin to feel a huge positive difference. I am telling you will feel lighter and that heaviness and guilt will be gone! You will begin to accelerate in your public life and message like never before! Myself and my students have had incredible results from doing this. The growth and increase will come almost immediately. It’s like burning off the dead grass in a pasture, driving out the snakes to have new green beautiful pastures with nothing harmful hiding that can trip you up! FREEDOM!
The people in question also need deliverance from these evil spirits! Pray that the Holy Spirit will go to them and lead them to full deliverance. You can also pray those deliverance prayers over that person in the natural or in the spirit. In the meantime, don’t let one or two deceived people that are trying to upset your mission ruin it for so many more who really need you and are truly sent by God.
Get mad at the devil, not the person. Be solution oriented in the spirit realm! These evil spirits are more afraid of us when we come in the name of Jesus Christ – we are their worst fear! Remember that!
The devil can’t stop you through any person or situation. You have authority over all of it. You are a representative of the King of Glory who crushed the kingdom of darkness! All you have to do is enforce the finished work of the CROSS and the BLOOD of Christ in the name of Jesus! You have all access credentials to everything the Kingdom of God has!
The Cross and the Blood of Jesus is your KEY but you must use it and enforce it in your Seat Of Authority. The Fire of The Holy Spirit can be called forth by faith to burn up and chase out any remnant of operating in and around you that is hidden.
Flash your badge of the Blood and The Cross and blind the enemy! Make the enemy bow the knee to Jesus Christ! You carry the authority through Christ! The devil has no teeth!
Jesus already gave YOU victory over all the works of the enemy! You must put it ON the Blood of Christ every day in the spirit and wear it like an official credential to get you through every gate and door of influence you want to get into!
Keep going – do not stop for any distractions! Even people who try to distract you! Do not allow it. Deal with it swiftly!

UPDATED 12/28/20

UNDERSTAND We do not have to go into the COURTS OF HEAVEN for every need or situation – it’s just like in the natural realm of life you don’t have to go to court in your city or county to solve every problem.   When you go into the courts of heaven it’s for something that you have been dealing with for a while and the basic solutions are not working.  For example when you need to see a breakthrough and no matter what you have been doing – it does not seem to be coming. This is a sure sign that there is a legal right of the accuser (the devil) to hold back your breakthrough! Discern that it is time to take your case into the Courts of Heaven.  What gives the accuser a legal right to hold back your breakthrough? SIN. Your own sin and the sins of your bloodline.

As a faith and victory coach and mentor, I have experienced great breakthroughs in my own life and in the lives of my clients and students by going into the Courts of Heaven with our cases.  We have the right to do this as the redeemed of Jesus Christ. You must be a born again believer in Christ to access the courts of heaven and to be able to ask for the Blood of Jesus to speak on your behalf.   I want you to get good at this, for your own lives, for your family and to help others. It is time for the Body of Christ to go boldly to the throne of Grace and Mercy and enforce the finished work of the Cross and the Blood of Jesus against any legal rights of the enemy and get these demonic accusations and curses removed so they are never allowed to come back and have any effect ever again! Let’s get this taken care of once and for all!

Teaching note: In the Courts of Heaven, forgive those who have hurt you or your children, and release/renounce all bitterness and negative words against them on the Cross of Jesus. Forgiveness strips the enemy of any legal right he is using in your relationships.  The more you repent for holding bitterness and unforgiveness of those who hurt you or hurt your kids, this breaks any strongholds the enemy had. Don’t blame your ex husbands/wives, family members or their friends or teachers for causing your kids to rebel.  It’s the legal right of the accuser to operate through these people, once you forgive and release all bitterness and blame – those influences will leave and you / your children within weeks you will see breakthrough. Trust me on this, I had to do this with my own child and forgive and release all bitterness against a horrible friend she had in her life that I was doing warfare against for years. It was not until I forgave, loosed all bitterness and prayed for their salvation was my daughter finally released from that ungodly influence! The enemy uses our own bitterness, blame and unforgiveness against us. I have spent countless hours in the courts of heaven for myself and my child and others and their children/families and the accuser has screamed this at me in the courts in the spirit. I am grateful I finally know this and my child is set free.  Look at yourself first, and stop blaming others and instead destroy the case of the accuser operating and strip him of his legal right! Remember most likely the issue that you are dealing with that you need a breakthrough in is usually connected to a sin in that area. For example if you need a breakthrough with finances, there is usually sin in your life or your bloodline with money or not being good stewards to the Lord with your money.  This is how I have learned and been set free of these accusations and see breakthroughs within weeks of repenting in the courts. –  Coach Annamarie



Prepare and Pray: Ask the Holy Spirit what is holding back your breakthrough or causing a negative issue in your life or family.  Tell Him of your specific issue or need and ask if the enemy, the accuser is using a legal right to hold you captive to this, and what is the accuser accusing you of?

Then Ask The Holy Spirit For a Court Appearance in the Courts Of Heaven – The Court of Judgement/Accusation

Just Before Your Appearance – Pray: “Holy Spirit, I am asking in Jesus name that you will reveal all to me clearly during my court appearance,  so that I can repent clearly for my wrong and follow through after the verdict is rendered.  I am also asking for my Angels to accompany me. Thank you for your help Holy Spirit, Amen”

  • Picture yourself standing in a courtroom with your Angels and the Holy Spirit beside you assisting you (I physically stand while doing this)
  • Picture yourself facing The Father God on His throne
  • Picture Jesus to the right of the Father
  • Picture the Mercy Seat just to the front of the Father, near Jesus and in front of you (ark of the covenant)
  • Picture Jesus Blood on the Mercy Seat
  • Picture the accuser’s place on the other side of Jesus (Jesus stands for you in-between the accuser and Almighty God our Righteous Judge
  • Picture the Recording Angels with desks and scrolls and pens recording what is being said in the courtroom
  • Picture the Cloud of Witnesses witnessing in your case and agreeing with Jesus and the Verdict

Ask Jesus to be your Intercessor in this Case and for the Court to Convene

  • Agree with the accusation
  • Confess to the accusation and the sin associated with it – express fully that you are very sorry

  • Ask the Father for His Judgement in your case
  • Ask to be found “Not Guilty” because of the Blood of Jesus
  • You will receive a “Not Guilty” Verdict – agree with this (because of Jesus we are all found Not Guilty)
  • Thank The Father and Jesus that because of His Blood, you are Not Guilty
  • Ask the Father in Jesus name to tell the accuser of His Judgement and Not Guilty Verdict in your case
  • Ask the Father to now move you from the Court of Judgement/Accusation to beside His Throne of Grace and Mercy with Jesus
  • Ask the Father  in Jesus name to strip the enemy of his accusation and any legal rights he has to you because of the Blood Of Jesus is now covering these sins
  • Ask the Father in Jesus name to tell the recording angels to wipe your record books/scroll clean of these accusations because they are now under the Blood of Jesus
  • Ask  in Jesus name for all curses connected to this accusation to be removed and rendered null and void on earth and in heaven and ask the Father to release you and your family bloodline from all consequences of these sins
  • Ask in Jesus name for this new “not guilty” verdict regarding your case to be written in your record book/scroll
  • Ask for a new document to be rendered for you from the court with the new verdict for you to take with you
  • Reach out and receive your document with your new not guilty verdict
  • Ask the Father in Jesus name  if you can tell the accuser to leave and never accuse you or any of your descendants again of this same thing ever again because the Blood of Jesus has spoken on yours and their behalf
  • Turn to the accuser and tell him his assignment is over. He no longer has a case.  By the blood of Jesus and this Not Guilty Verdict rendered by the Court of Heaven and God Almighty in your hand, he must leave! Every curse and demonic assignment has been cancelled according to the word of God, a curse causeless cannot light!  Then in the name of Jesus forbid him from ever accusing you or any of your descendants ever again – No Recourse! Tell him this case is OVER and He has NOTHING on you because of the BLOOD and the righteous judgement of God!!  Tell him he is FIRED and take his curses with him in Jesus name! (you may see him stomp out of the court!)
  • Ask in Jesus name for the Father to command His angels to decree your new Not Guilty verdict out loud in the Heavens
  • Ask for any restitution that is available to you and your family (from the curses being removed there may be blessings, healings etc that have been held back)
  • Ask if there will be need for a specific Angels to be assigned to you to carry out restitution

Upon Preparing to leave the Court:

  • Thank the Father and Praise Him for His grace and mercy, thank Him for allowing you to come before Him with your case
  • Thank Jesus for interceding for you, thank Him for the power of His Blood which is your only defense
  • Thank the Angels who are recording, thank your angels for accompanying you and thank the Holy Spirit for His help
  • Ask the Father in Jesus name for the Verdict to be immediately to be fully carried out and enforced on earth and in your life and family line by the Authority of Jesus Christ, the Angels on Assignment fromGod and the by the Anointing of the Holy Spirit
  • Hold up your Verdict and decree:  “By the Blood of Jesus and the Grace and Mercy of Almighty God – I am no longer guilty of this sin. I am free of all accusation and curses in Jesus name!

Wielding The Scepter Of Righteousness

Wielding The Scepter Of Righteousness

Taking Your Daily Seat of Authority and Wielding The Scepter Of Righteousness

scep·ter /ˈseptər/ or sceptre noun 1. an ornamented staff carried by rulers on ceremonial occasions as a symbol of sovereignty.

Believers in Christ it is time to start truly using our authority that Jesus died and rose to give to us:  Each day as you take your seat of authority in Christ Jesus (see my daily #suitup prayer) Go a step further and take the Scepter of Righteousness of KING JESUS in your hand in the spirit and use it! Hold it up each day and beat down the scepter of wickedness! Do this over your city and region in the spirit.  It is those who are in Christ Jesus who have dominion over the land!

Now, Sit in a Chair, turn to your left and Say out loud: “Father God, I accept Thy gracious word. I believe that Thou hast thus wrought for me according to Ephesians Chapter 2.  In humble faith, I do now take my seat of authority in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus at Thy right hand. Where I now rule and reign in Christ Jesus, King of Kings and through Christ Jesus of the Priestly Kingly Order of Melchizedek, over all the land, the waters and the mountains and over every area of influence in the earth in Jesus name! I put the kingdom of darkness under my feet! I walk in the righteousness of Jesus Christ and I now take the Scepter of Righteousness in my hand. It is written in Psalm 125:3 that The scepter of wickedness will not remain over the land allotted to the righteous.  I declare this land of _________________ has been allotted to the righteous.  Therefore the scepter of wickedness can no longer remain here over ______________.   I hold up the scepter of righteousness by the authority of Jesus Christ and I beat down the scepter of wickedness and smash it to pieces!  I scrape the pieces into the fire of Almighty God to be burned to ashes!  It is written that the scepter of wickedness cannot remain so it shall be!!  In the name of Jesus Christ I decree and declare this land of _____________is the land allotted to the righteous and the scepter of righteous rules and reigns over __________forever!  I decree the scepter of wickedness is now destroyed and can never come near _______ again in Jesus name!!  By the Authority of Jesus Christ in whom I am seated I take dominion over _____________ and in the name of Jesus Christ and claim it for ALMIGHTY GOD!  I call forth the Angel Armies of Almighty God to come and blow the victory trumpets of the Lord over this land!  Let the plans and purposes of Almighty God and the Lord Jesus Christ come forth upon this land right now and prosper in Jesus name!  Let the righteous people of this land now receive their rightful inheritance from the Lord!! Hallelujah!!”   – Written By Annamarie Strawhand,

Two Kingdoms in Contrast

Psalm 125:3

The scepter of wickedness will not remain over the land allotted to the righteous. NIV, NASB

Did you realize that wickedness wields a scepter? Yes, it’s true; there is authority in the kingdom of Satan. The Scripture tells us in Colossians 1:12–13 that we have been delivered from the authority of the dominion of darkness and translated into the kingdom of the Son of God’s love. There are the two kingdoms set in stark contrast. The kingdom of the authority of darkness and the kingdom of the Son of God’s love, which is a kingdom of light and of love. Each kingdom has authority, but the authority of the kingdom of God is superior to all other authority in the universe. God’s kingdom, the Scripture says, ruleth over all, it is established forever, it is unshakable.

And when we are part of God’s kingdom, then God permits us, on His behalf, to wield the scepter of righteousness, the scepter which has upon it the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. And as we wield that scepter, we beat back and cast down the scepter of wickedness, breaking down the scepter of wickedness, destroying the dominion of Satan. We move back into the area which God has allotted to us.

So there is a promise for God’s people to regain their inheritance in Christ. “The scepter of wickedness shall not remain over the land allotted to the righteous.” For you and me, there is a land allotted to us through our righteousness in Christ. We need to take that scepter boldly and beat down the scepter of wickedness and enter into our allotted inheritance.


How To Remove Demons From Your Home – Spiritual House Cleaning Strategies with Prayers

How To Remove Demons From Your Home – Spiritual House Cleaning Strategies with Prayers

I make sure my home honors God in the natural and in the spiritual. – Annamarie Strawhand


The Bible is CLEAR about bringing and having items in your home that do not honor God.  The Bible calls them “detestable” to God!  I want to honor God in my home and life and I know you do too – this is a tactic of the enemy to use these items as a legal right to come against you and have entry in your home! We must remove the things that are giving the legal right to the demonic out of our homes.   I have come to realize that the more I do spiritual house cleaning – the breakthroughs and blessings are immediately behind it and acceleration of blessing happens almost overnight!

Spiritual house cleaning is not a religious ritual – it’s making your home a place that honors God because you love Him and You want to obey His Word!

Bible reference to spiritual house cleaning:

Deuteronomy 7:26  You must burn up the images of their gods; do not covet the silver and gold that is on them or take it for yourselves, or you will be ensnared by it; for it is detestable to the LORD your God. 26 And you must not bring any detestable thing into your house, or you, like it, will be set apart for destruction. You are to utterly detest and abhor it, because it is set apart for destruction.

Neither shall you bring an abomination into your house, lest you be a cursed thing like it: but you shall utterly detest it, and you shall utterly abhor it; for it is a cursed thing.

Isaiah 30:22

Ye shall defile also the covering of thy graven images of silver, and the ornament of thy molten images of gold: thou shalt cast them away as a menstruous cloth; thou shalt say unto it, Get thee hence.

Ezekiel 11:18

And they shall come thither, and they shall take away all the detestable things thereof and all the abominations thereof from thence.

Joshua 6:18

And you, in any wise keep yourselves from the accursed thing, lest you make yourselves accursed, when you take off the accursed thing, and make the camp of Israel a curse, and trouble it.

Joshua 7:13

Get up and consecrate the people, saying, ‘Consecrate yourselves for tomorrow, for this is what the LORD, the God of Israel, says: Among you, O Israel, there are things devoted to destruction. You cannot stand against your enemies until you remove them.

These “detestable” items can cause demonic attachments that open doors to the kingdom of darkness in your home to curses, demons and familiar spirits (that people think are ghosts). This is not to be played with and must be taken very seriously.  Allowing this evil to be in your home can come against your life, marriage, family, finances and health and more! Let’s identify and remove, trash, burn these things up asap!

Acts 19:19

“And a number of those who had practiced magic arts brought their books together and burned them in the sight of all. And they counted the value of them and found it came to fifty thousand pieces of silver.”





Romans 12:9

Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good.

2 Corinthians 6:17

Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,

Ephesians 5:11

And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.


IMPORTANT NOTE BEFORE YOU BEGIN YOUR SPIRITUAL HOUSE CLEANING: When you pray the prayers out loud do them for yourself in a private place and then do your own items that belong personally to you BEFORE you work on the family members! Do this calmly! Then when it comes to your family, DO NOT just go in and start grabbing things away! I specifically tell you NOT to do this in my teaching if you read through it. You are to wait and pray and send the Holy Spirit to work on them for them to come to the conclusion to throw it away, this needs to be handled gently and calmly and they have to want to do it! This has to be done a step at a time and with patience and understanding. Your kids/husband/wife may not understand this and it will take time. You could cause more turmoil and discord in your home by just barging in and just taking their stuff, so you need to sit back, calm down and rely on the Holy Spirit to help you, have sit down talks and teachings with them, and lead and guide them gently so they can come to their own understanding. You can cover them in the Blood of Jesus, and cover their stuff in the Blood of Jesus and ask God to give them grace, mercy and protection as He works on them and brings them to understanding to remove these items too. This MUST be done in steps and with love and patience. – I say this from love and experience 🙂


You start your spiritual house cleaning with a commitment and partnership with the Holy Spirit.

Pray Out Loud: “Holy Spirit, thank you for being my life helper in everything.  I want to make my life and home a place that honors God.  I want Your Holy Spirit to flow powerfully and freely in my home and in my life and family!  I partner with you now, the Holy Spirit to help me with my spiritual house cleaning in Jesus Name.  Show me Holy Spirit the things and items that need to be removed that have ungodly soul ties.  Reveal to me Holy Spirit any items that have demonic attachments or are cursed,  reveal to me Holy Spirit if there is anything in my life and my home that is giving the kingdom of darkness a legal right to come against me, causing problems or coming against my blessings – thank you Holy Spirit.  I also ask the Father to send His Angels of Protection, Heavenly Hosts and Breakthrough Angels to Assist in pulling down any demonic strongholds! Holy Spirit give me sharp discernment to carry this out with You boldly and decisively with no fear or hesitation in Jesus name! Let’s begin!”


Remember to do your Suit UP Prayers every day to be ready to take on anything that day (take your seat of Authority in Christ Jesus next to the Father) Your seat of authority you have dominion, you fight from Heaven to earth, not earth to Heaven!



Pray out LOUD:  “Father, it is written that we have dominion in all the earth and right NOW I plead the Blood of Jesus over this home (address)_____________ and I evict every wicked, unclean, defiled, LYING word that has been released into the atmosphere of this home and property and I loose it and kick it out right NOW in Jesus’ Mighty Name! 

***WE NEED TO DO THIS EVERYWHERE WE GO IN OUR HOUSE – EACH ROOM) AND AROUND YOUR PROPERTY FOR THOSE WORDS ARE STILL THERE (if you have an old house the words are there from previous owners – hell has one language and that is profanity)

“Father, I bind Your love, peace, joy, happiness, and Your TRUTH to the atmosphere of THIS HOUSE AND PROPERTY (address) ____________ in Jesus’ Mighty Name!”


INVITE THE HOLY SPIRIT AND ANOINT YOUR HOME (see anointing oil prayers and how to anoint your home here)

You can also anoint your home with oil over all the doors and windows, and say: “I dedicate and consecrate this home to you Father God, bless this home and sanctify this home by the blood of Jesus Christ and the anointing of your Holy Spirit. I invite you Holy Spirit into this home, come fill every room and stay forever, You are welcome here Holy Spirit! In Jesus name, Amen” (make sure you have prayed over the oil and dedicated it to God in Jesus name – decree over the oil that anything it touches will release the power of the Holy Spirit and anything anointed by this oil will be sanctified and set apart for the plans and purposes of Almighty God in Jesus name!) 



Do you think you may have ‘ghosts’ or demonic spirits in your house?

LET’S BE CLEAR: There is no such thing as ghosts only demonic entities that take on the appearance of humans. This is a familiar spirit. They get attached to families and are hard to get rid of. They also can jump into pets. You need to SUIT UP, anoint your home, then dedicate every room and every person and pet in your Home to God and invite the Holy Spirit to come and fill your home. Then take your seat of authority in Christ and say out loud: “YOU VILE FAMILIAR SPIRIT, YOU OF THE KINGDOM OF DARKNESS, LISTEN TO ME! YOU ARE NOT WELCOME HERE! THIS IS NOT YOUR FAMILY! THIS IS NOT YOUR HOUSE! IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST I TAKE AUTHORITY OVER YOU AND COMMAND YOU TO LEAVE THIS HOUSE NOW AND GO TO THE UNINHABITED DRY PLACE AND STAY THERE! GET OUT AND NEVER COME BACK IN JESUS NAME – I NOW ASK THE HOLY SPIRIT TO COME AND FILL EVERY PLACE THAT EVIL SPIRIT VACATED AND STAND HOLD THERE, I CLOSE ANY AND ALL DOORS TO THE KINGDOM OF DARKNESS AND SEAL IT WITH THE BLOOD OF JESUS!!

Now let’s close those doors to anything ungodly, unholy or demonic forever!


SOUL TIE  ITEMS: A soul tie happens when you have had a sexual or very close relationship with someone other than your spouse. It stays on you until you break it off and remove any gifts, clothing, jewelry or letters, pictures, keepsakes etc . It can affect your current marriage negatively if you never removed your old soul ties to past relationships.  You are showing the enemy you are still in covenant with that other person.  You should ONLY be in covenant with God through Jesus Christ and your own spouse. 

Soul ties can also come from close friendships that did not end well, and also you can be stuck in a ‘blood covenant’ with someone if you did a ‘blood sisters’ as a kid. Like you pricked your thumb and pressed your blood with another person as a gimmick. Not good, God looks at that as a covenant, and so does the enemy. You can break that off with a simple prayer.  Also you can ask Jesus to apply His blood over anything that is out there that you gave to the other person and break the soul tie off that. 

Soul Tie Covenants can also be connected to people you were employed by and any kind of agreement you signed to do that job or project – break off all agreements and your signature off that document (such as a non-compete) erased with the Blood of Jesus in heaven and on earth. This could be holding back financial and other blessings toward your purpose.

Ungodly Soul ties and items from any sinful relationships can also open door to the kingdom of darkness in your home and marriage – remove, trash, burn them asap.  

NOTE: Spiritual housecleaning includes removing toxic relationships and also friendships that cause you to sin or those who try to drag you down or pull you backwards in your faith walk. Do not throw your pearls to the swine anymore. It’s time to walk away. I have done this with many relationships. I even wrote them goodbye letters. Some I had to block on social media. That was my old life and I will not allow anyone to try to pull me back or discourage me or mock my faith. I forgive them, bless them and block them.

JEWELRY, FURNITURE, VALUABLE ITEMS: If the soul tie item is an expensive item, The word of God says to actually burn these items even if they are of value, however we do have the powerful Blood of Jesus. You can repent for keeping them all this time, cut and sever all soul ties to that person with the sword of the spirit of God , lift the items up to God give them to God, consecrate them to God and plead the blood of Jesus over your sin and the item, ask the Lord to cleanse it  and sanctify it with His blood, and remove all curses and demonic assignments off them in Jesus name. if you have anointing oil you can also anoint them and bless them for the next person who will buy it. Take the money you make and make an offering of the first part of it to the Lord as gratitude for His forgiveness grace and mercy.  God did tell Joshua to give HIM the silver and gold plunder from the FIRST victory at Jericho.  But God did not want the Idols – He told them to heap them up and burn them!!   I would only sell items that don’t have any occult symbols on them!  Trash or burn anything with the occult and repent repent repent!


IDOLS OR DEMONIC DECOR: If the item is an idol or has a demonic/occult design do not sell these!  Burn them or smash and trash them!  Repent for having them and break their demonic power off your home and life with the Blood of Jesus.  See the list below for these type objects.


HIDDEN DEMONIC ATTACHMENTS: Furniture that had idol worship on it, items used in violent or criminal acts, mirrors used in witchcraft or curses spoken over it, jewelry used in robbery, family jewelry with bloodline curses, SOUVENIRS from foreign lands where witch doctors and voodoo is still practiced. (These souvenirs may look harmless, but these witch doctors put curses on them and un-knowingly tourists buy them and bring a curse into their home!) Also check stuff bought at antique or consignment stores/yard sales – you must ask the Holy Spirit to reveal if there are curses attached, hold it up to God and ask for revelation and confirmation.  I used to love to shop at yard sales, thrift shops and consignment stores, BUT now that I know what I know – I try to never buy anything from those places anymore, especially furniture or jewelry!   Years ago I had a consignment shop I used to go to all the time.  I loved the shabby chic look in my home design so I wanted to create a sink for my bathroom made out of an antique dresser.  I found the one I wanted and waited for weeks for it to go on sale. I went back there one day with a wonderful Christian girl who used to work for me, I bought it and she helped me load it in my van and bring it home.  I did not know the dresser was cursed.  I put it in my bathroom ready to convert it to a vanity sink.  Immediately I had a huge ugly fallout with this wonderful girl who worked for me.  It was terrible.  We had never had a problem before – she was so sweet and I had loved her and her work.  She left in tears.  Then all kinds of strife began in my home with my family. My cats were even creeped out by it and would hiss when they walked by the dresser sometimes.  This went on for years and something kept happening to where financially we could not finish the bathroom.  I then moved the dresser to my teen daughter’s room – she needed the drawer space.  Almost immediately I saw a change in her, she started getting rid of her cute clothes and started wanting to buy dark type clothes with skulls and stuff like that on them and filling those drawers up with that stuff in that dresser!  One day I was reading Jeanette Strauss’ book – Redeem Your Home.  She talked about demonic attachments on furniture.  I heard the Holy Spirit tell me to go look at that dresser and stare at it. So I did – my spiritual eyes were opened!  I saw that there had been Idol worship on top of that dresser before I got it!  I was shocked!  It all made sense!  I went to my daughters room and I calmly told her I would be buying her new furniture.  I did not tell her why, I made a fun shopping trip with her and we got all (brand new) stuff for her room, Then removed the cursed one out, did the prayers of repentance!!  We saw a change and shift for the better almost immediately when it was gone. I reached out to that Christian girl who used to work with me and we reconciled in forgiveness.  Thank you Holy Spirit!  


OTHER PEOPLE’S STUFF THAT LIVE WITH YOU: If the cursed or demonic item belongs to another person (such as your child or spouse), ask the Lord for grace and mercy for them and you, cover your home and everything in it in the Blood of Jesus and ask the Holy Spirit to go and convict that person to remove the items. Your children if small will be better about the stuff being removed – having a gentle talk with them, teens and other adults can be difficult, so you need my Holy Spirit prayer (see below.)


KID SAFETY FROM DEMONS:  The ‘virtual games’ are a demonic portal for kids and your house. Like anime’ and anything where they set up an online house or hotel. You can repent for allowing them to play it and commanding any familiar spirits or demons to leave! First cut them off your kids with your sword of the spirit, bind them and command them to leave now, ask your Angelic Hosts of Heaven or Almighty God that are assigned to you to arrest and chain up these demons and familiar spirits and take them to the dry place! Cleanse and seal your kids and your house and computers in the Blood of Jesus and close up any place they came in with the fire of the holy spirit and forbid them from ever returning in Jesus name (make sure no games or stuff from them are around or left) I am asking the Holy Spirit to reveal and remove w angelic help.) The deal with video games and virtual reality is if they “become” a character so that’s what God was showing me.  This is a quenching of their identity in Christ.  Make sure you invite the Holy Spirit to come and take over that place forever!


VIOLENT OR DEMONIC VIDEO GAMES PLAYED BY TEENS OR SPOUSE: Plead the blood of Jesus over them and the game. Send the Holy Spirit to hover over them and begin a work in them to guide him to the truth. Ask the Father for grace and mercy over you and your loved one and home and angelic protection while the Holy Spirit does a work in them to see the truth.


I want to be clear. If you live in a house with other people, you cannot remove their ungodly or cursed things from the house unless they agree to it and you cannot “push” or “convince” them. They must be led by the Holy Spirit. You remove your own things what you have control over in your home. Even with your kids, this is a process and you need to send the Holy Spirit ahead of you to work on opening their eyes first. They can witness you doing it with your own stuff and get them thinking – you can say, “I am getting rid of this stuff because I really love Jesus and I don’t want anything that would not honor Him around me, and in my space. I also don’t want anything in my space that has anything evil attached to it because that could be holding back my blessing!” (then when your blessings and breakthroughs come you make a big deal of it right in front of everyone “Praise God! My blessing is here – I knew if I got rid of that stuff miracles would come!” (get what I am saying here? ) they need to WITNESS to the glory of God operating in what you are doing – it makes them think and you can keep sending the Holy Spirit to work on them.




(Mom Tip) When they are not around, you can pray over and anoint the kids computer where they play the games – phones, internet modem etc – See the end of this teaching on how to anoint the objects and your home.




How to send the Holy Spirit to a loved one – Pray: “Holy Spirit, my helper in all things, I send you to my loved one __________ to do a work in them.  Hover over them and do creative miracles in them.  I ask you Holy Spirit to reveal to them the activities, things and items in their lives that do not honor God.  Convict them in their hearts to remove forever these unholy and ungodly activities and items out of their lives and reveal the love, grace and mercy of Father God – fill those places where those items and activities were with your Holy Spirit. I place the Blood of Jesus on every portal, gate or door where those demonic assignments were operating around my loved one and close those demonic portals, gates and doors forever and seal it with the Blood of Jesus! Holy Spirit, I ask you Now to  Point ___________ to Jesus Christ to desire Him and to lead a life that reveals life, light and truth in Christ Jesus. I declare Jeremiah 24:7 over my loved one _______ that God is giving them a heart to know Him right now!  I am in faithful expectation to see your miracle working power Holy Spirit in my loved one. Help me to work with You Holy Spirit to be an example to them, give me the words to speak to them that will stir their hearts to love all things that magnify our Father God, In Jesus mighty name, Amen.”

(Each individual in your family should pray this out loud.)

“Father God, I come before you to confirm by faith that I stand on and agree with YOUR word now fully according to Galatians 2:20, That I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. Therefore, Father God, my testimony is this: Through the blood of Jesus Christ, I am redeemed out of the hand of the devil, Spirit, soul and body, I belong to Jesus Christ, Sanctified and set apart to You Father God by the blood of Jesus. Thank You Jesus, that Your blood speaks for me before our Father God night and day on the mercy seat! Thank You Father for Grace and Mercy! Father God I come before you and I renounce, rebuke, revoke and cancel all unholy covenants I have ever made in my life, and the lives of my ancestors going all the way back to Adam and Eve in Jesus Name! I repent, Father God for these unholy covenants in my life and my ancestors lives and I ask for Your Grace, Mercy and Forgiveness! Lord Jesus wash away my sins with your blood and wash my ancestral bloodline clean with your precious blood Lord Jesus! I decree today the only Covenant I am in from this day forward is one HOLY Covenant with Almighty God through the Blood Of Jesus Christ! I also decree this over my bloodline in Jesus name! Father God I ask that all records of unholy covenants be wiped off my record books and the record books of my ancestors in the Courts of Heaven by the Blood of Jesus and remembered no more for Your Sake! In Jesus Name! I ask that the NEW HOLY COVENANT that I have with You Father God through Jesus Christ is written and decreed in my record books in Heaven, and this record of repentance is made available for all my future court appearances in Your Holy Courts Father God from this day forward in Jesus name, AMEN!”

Time for you to get FREE of all unholy entanglements that would try to hold back your divine destiny!  It’s time for great blessings and breakthroughs to come forth in your life, family, household, finances, ministry and business!  Whooo hooooo!!!

Love, Coach Annamarie Strawhand

Sound The Shofar (play recording on loop in home) The sound of the Shofar is the Trumpeting Voice of God and demons hate it – it’s God’s frequency and sends the demonic realm into confusion.   When sounding the Shofar decree:  “Sound the Shofar, Yahweh is fighting for us!

Why should we come before God and repent for any unholy covenants?  Because our God is all about covenants. They are very important to Him, and He even sacrificed His only Son to have a way, through the Blood of Jesus that we can all fully return to one Holy Covenant with Him, the one true God – the God of Abraham, Issac and Jacob.  God will bless those who are in covenant with Him alone, like He did Abraham (Genesis 15).  When you are in covenant with other things besides God (especially unholy things) – many of your blessings can be held back. Why?  Because the accuser (Rev 12:10) is in the Courts of Heaven accusing us (the brethren, the people of God) night and day of sin and any covenants we entered into or our ancestors did that are against God.  How do we know what an unholy covenant is?  Can some agreements (both written and verbal) that we were in with business, religion, groups, and personal relationships in our past still be being used to hold us back in life?  The answer is YES!  Watch my video teaching on this and take notes. Then do the prayer decree below.


DECREE AND PRAY OUT LOUD: (download a printable here – pdf)

“Father God, I come before you to confirm by faith that I stand on and agree with YOUR word now fully according to Galatians 2:20, That I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me. Therefore, Father God, my testimony is this: Through the blood of Jesus Christ, I am redeemed out of the hand of the devil, Spirit, soul and body, I belong to Jesus Christ, Sanctified and set apart to You Father God by the blood of Jesus. Thank You Jesus, that Your blood speaks for me before our Father God night and day on the mercy seat! Thank You Father for Grace and Mercy! Father God I come before you and I renounce, rebuke, revoke and cancel all unholy covenants I have ever made in my life, and the lives of my ancestors going all the way back to Adam and Eve in Jesus Name! I repent, Father God for these unholy covenants in my life and my ancestors lives and I ask for Your Grace, Mercy and Forgiveness! Lord Jesus wash away my sins with your blood and wash my ancestral bloodline clean with your precious blood Lord Jesus! I decree today the only Covenant I am in from this day forward is one HOLY Covenant with Almighty God through the Blood Of Jesus Christ! I also decree this over my bloodline in Jesus name! Father God I ask that all records of unholy covenants be wiped off my record books and the record books of my ancestors in the Courts of Heaven by the Blood of Jesus and remembered no more for Your Sake! Father God, I also ask that myself and my bloodline is released  and set free from all consequences of these sins Jesus Name! I ask that the NEW HOLY COVENANT that I have with You Father God through Jesus Christ is written and decreed in my record books in Heaven, and this record of repentance is made available for all my future court appearances in Your Holy Courts Father God from this day forward in Jesus name. Amen!”
