Renunciation Prayers

Prayer Over the Principality of Bitterness Related to Addictions and All It’s Underlings

June 17, 2019

From Dr. M. K. Strydom’s book “Breaking the Power of Addictions” – this prayer can be found on pages 46-47 (Yeshua has been substitute for Jesus throughout the prayer). This book is freely available for download at

I encourage you to say the following out loud with authority: “I take authority over the unclean, unloving, accusing spirits of self- hatred, self-rejection, self-bitterness and guilt that have been accusing me to myself as well as inherited iniquity of self-hatred and guilt in my family tree – you cannot rule my spirit and mind any longer. I break your power in the Name of Yeshua. I command you to go and to be cast out of my life and the generations in my family in the power and authority of the Name of Yeshua! Spirit of bondage and addictions, you have bound my body long enough with different types of addictions. Whether it was smoking,drinking, drugs, gambling, sex, pornography, gluttony or whatever form of addiction, it is finished now. I refuse to be bound any longer as it is written that my body is a temple of the Holy Spirit – you heard me dedicate my body to God to be holy, devoted, consecrated and set apart for Him – so I refuse to allow you the right to defile my temple any longer. I don’t want to do any of those things any longer and I now break your chains and holds on my thoughts, my body, my mouth, my taste-buds, my throat, my lungs and my intestines and I command you to leave me and my generations in Yeshua’s Name. I also take authority over the spirit of death and spirit of infirmity. In the Name of Yeshua I break your power and I command you to go! Father Your Word says that whom the Son sets free is free indeed! So I thank you that I am really and unquestionably free today! (John 8 v 36). Now Father, I ask You to help me to begin to love myself this day. I ask You for the grace, power, strength and ability that I need to renew my mind as I begin to learn to build a healthy self-esteem (self esteem is covered in the next chapter of the book). Amen”
