DEEP SECRETS, DEEP DELIVERANCE
Daniel 2:22 says: He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the
darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.
here are some things that are deep and there are others on the surface. When you want to get
something that is deep, you have to dig deep to find it. Gold and oil are treasures that cannot be
found on the surface of the ground; you have to dig deep to find them. There are some deep secrets about life. The Bible tells us that it is God that knows the things that are in secret and He can reveal them to us.
The word of God goes on to say that God knows the things that are in the dark. One fact about darkness is that the person in it can see the person in the light very clearly, but the one in the lit up
area would need special anointing to see the person in the dark.
Until certain secrets are revealed, it may be difficult to experience victory. The enemy of our soul fights a very terrible battle for the souls of men. The devil is the father of lies. So, his tactics are very deceitful. He has no honour or integrity. As far as he is concerned, there is nothing like fairness. If you want to destroy your enemy, you need to know his secrets.
The following secrets will lead you to victory and total deliverance.
1. Not everyone who calls GOD is calling God. You may be surprised to find out that some people
pray to petty gods and if you are not careful, you will say “Amen” to what they are saying. The
utterances they call prayers, are actually incantations. In them you will never hear the name of Jesus
and they will never address the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. They will just say ‘god, god’.
For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods
many, and lords many,) But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things,
and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.
Many people are being deceived every day. A brother got into a serious problem one day and a
friend took him to see someone who could give him spiritual assistance. He said when they got
there, he was taken to a room which was very dark, whereas it was just 11a.m. He saw birds
flying about and heard voices, as if the birds were talking. He felt very uncomfortable and got up
to leave, but just then he sighted a Bible on a table and he sat back, thinking that the Bible meant
the presence of God.
Someone came to ‘pray’ for him and he noticed that he was addressing ‘the creator’ and never
mentioned Jesus. He thought he was referring to God the creator, but before he knew what he had
gotten himself into, his three children were deported in one day. They lived separately but they
all met at the airport in Nigeria. None of them brought back anything. They came back empty
handed and could not explain why they were deported.
That is why we should be careful where we go. If the Holy Spirit begins to rebel within you, it
means you are not supposed to be where you are or you are not supposed to be doing what you
are doing. If you stay on, you are looking for trouble and you are likely to get it.
2. The devil has an organised kingdom: The devil has followers and emissaries and his kingdom is
contrary to the kingdom of God.
3. The worst attack comes during sleep: Some of the problems that people struggle with started at
night, during the hours of 12 a.m. and 3 a.m. This is why it is advisable to stay awake and pray
during these hours. Matthew 13:25 says:
But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.
4. If food is taken out of existence, demonic oppression will decrease: A major part of the
afflictions of man, comes from the food he eats. It is a serious thing, to find oneself eating in the
dream. Spirits do not eat food but when they force-feed a person in the dream, he/she will
experience different types of affliction.
5. There are creatures used by witchcraft powers to afflict people in their dreams: If you see the
following animals in your dream, you should pray seriously, because it means you are under
witchcraft attacks: goat, cat, rat, bat, termite, serpent or mud-fish.
6. Agents of darkness like to put on black clothes: Beware of a person who is not mourning, but is
always putting on black clothes.
7. People use candles to destroy others: If you have ever been to a gathering where candles are lit
to perform rites, you need to go through deliverance.
8. The enemy can mix with the wind to afflict people: Some people get paralysed or start to have
serious ailments after a strange wind blows on them suddenly. I pray that if you have been afflicted
this way, you shall be delivered today, in the name of Jesus.
1. Powers on assignment to frustrate my destiny, received the blow of death, in the name of Jesus. 2. Unconscious strongman troubling my life, step out by fire, in the name of Jesus.

command it to go back to the sender. All curses upon my life, I remove. All back log, all spell,
all disfavour, I cancel you now in the name of Jesus. My head, hear the word of the Lord, the
Lord anoint you with oil of gladness above all my fellows. Let the anointing that breaketh
yoke, that bringeth favour, that power, fall upon my head now, in the name of Jesus. Every
yoke upon my head is broken now in the name of Jesus. My head shall be lifted up above the
enemies around me, in the name of Jesus. Every power affecting my brain, every power
affecting my memory, every power affecting my favour, hear the word of the Lord, die, in the
name of Jesus.

DEEP DELIVERANCE FROM DEEP BONDAGE
ours. However, when it is deeply rooted, it would need more effort to pull it out. Many people
have confessed to witchcraft and one of them was a small girl. She brought a clay pot in which she had 17 padlocks. It was amazing to discover that she knew the function of each padlock. Out of them, she had used 12 on her own father. She said she had locked up all the money he had, or would ever have in life.
If this kind of things exist, is it not then necessary to take spiritual warfare serious? Imagine a person at a prayer meeting, praying and then three of such padlocks get destroyed and the person is not even aware of their existence, not to mention their destruction. If such a person is not serious, the three that were destroyed will be replaced by more wicked ones. That is why you have to pray and be sure you
I would like you to know that there are some problems that are deeply rooted. There are some problem that people cannot discuss with others, because they sound very strange. For example, there is something called spiritual blockage. In this situation, a person cannot connect to heaven. There is no vision, no dream, no prophesy. He sees nothing, and he hears nothing from God.
DARK, DEAF AND DUMB
Everything in the dark spirit realm is deaf and dumb. Any time people in the dark decide to fast and pray, it is a serious problem. Whenever they pick the Bible to read, they fall asleep. Any time they start to pray, their thoughts wander from one thing to another; they cannot concentrate. Sometimes, when they go through deliverance, they fall sick and end up in hospital. Any method they use in
progressing spiritually lands them in trouble. Such people need deep deliverance.
There is something called dry faith. The person prays but doubts God in the depth of his or her heart. These are people who will cry and weep all the time, despite the fact that they have prayed. They may even prophesy, but they will still cry.
Some people have abnormal, tormenting, dreadful and strange thoughts passing through their minds. For some, everything will be going on well and they would be at the verge of their breakthroughs, but when they have a strange dream and the breakthrough does not manifest, then there would be a lot of
attacks and strange things will happen to them.
For some people, there will be no problem when they have no money, but as soon as they have, events will pile up one after the other, until the money is exhausted. Then, before money comes again, problems would have piled up, waiting to gulp the money. Such people need deep deliverance.
There is something called prayer-blockage: this is when a person cannot pray on his own. The only time he can pray is when he is in the church, in the midst of other peoplepraying. Some people experience excessive tiredness; they become exhausted beyond measure, without doing any hard work. It means the devil is toying with their bodies. Some people experience unexplainable hatred.
People are hostile to them without cause; they are not wanted around for any reason. These people need very deep deliverance.
STEPS TO DEEP DELIVERANCE
1. Know that there is a problem: Once you realize that there is a problem somewhere, the solution
has started. After much prayer for one man one day, he calmed down and asked why he was on the
floor and why his clothes were dirty. He asked where his parents were and broke into tears. That
showed that he had been delivered and had come back to his senses.
2. Pray with desperation: When a person becomes desperate, progress begins. Many people pray
but they are not yet desperate.
One day a woman came to me crying, that her husband was always beating her. He would beat her to the extent that she would faint and he would take her to hospital. I told her that there are two ways to it. The Lord told me that his salvation would come in a hard way and I told her. She agreed to pray some prayer points for the salvation of his soul.
The second day of her prayers, her husband was arrested and taken to the police station and later to prison. He had been there for some weeks, before it dawned on him that the beggarly powers he was depending on could not help him. When the wife went to visit him, he showed her the incisions on his back and said they were useless.
By the time he has spent two months in the prison, the wife came to me again, saying she was weary of taking food to him in the prison everyday. She also said she was ashamed of being referred to as the wife of a prisoner. I told her that the Lord had not finished dealing with him but she wanted him out of the prison. We prayed and he was released. As soon as he came back home, the beating started again.
When you get desperate, there are prayers that you will pray. They do not have to be long. There are many Christians who need to pray desperate prayers today. A brother told me his problems, I gave him prayer points and I told him that they were dangerous because anything could happen. He said he
was ready for any thing. Within five days of prayers, the Lord dealt with ‘troublers of his Israel’.
If a person has made a covenant in the dark world to kill another person and the individual happen to be a child of God, whatever is done against him in the dark world will backfire. If the evil doer vows that he or she would rather die than see the person alive and prospering, it will come to pass when the Lord arises on his behalf. That is why some evil people that are unrepentant, die when the children of God pray.
THE POWER OF PRAYER
Some of us really need to pray deep prayers today. There is nothing prayers cannot do. It can quench fire; it has brought down fire on soldiers before and has roasted them. It has sealed the mouth of lions
before. 2Kings 1:12says:
And Elijah answered and said unto them, If I be a man of God, let fire come down from
heaven, and consume thee and thy fifty. And the fire of God came down from heaven, and
consumed him and his fifty.
Prayer has pulled down a witchcraft bird from the sky and it transformed into a human being. It has introduced confusion into the camp of the enemy. It has made owners of evil load to carry their load. There is nothing that it cannot do. To be quite honest with you, anyone who can really pray has no problem. Many of the churches that do not believe in our kind of prayers, have started praying them. Some are even asking for deliverance sessions to be conducted in their churches.
The prayers I am suggesting below are not for gentle men; they are for mad prophets. When a prophet prays in holy madness, fire falls. Are you tired of the harassments of the devil and his cohorts? Then, you have to become desperate and pray with all the aggression that you can muster. I want you to pray and be expectant. Beloved, if you pray these prayers fervently and you loose your voice in the process, you would have made a good bargain, because you would have obtained your deliverance
from the powers that are trying to prove stubborn.
These prayers will cause a lot of havoc in the camp of the enemy. They are the kind of prayers that chased out demons and they were begging Jesus not to send them out.
POWER IN THE BLOOD
Beloved, but if you have not surrendered your life to the Lord Jesus Christ, you cannot really pray the prayers I am suggesting below. If you are not born again, you cannot claim to be a child of God and He will not reveal secrets to you. If you are ready to become born again now, all you need do is acknowledge that you are a sinner and that you cannot approach God in your sinful state. Confess your
sins to Him and ask Him to forgive you and cleanse you from all unrighteousness.
Claim the redemptive power in the blood of Jesus that was shed on the cross at Calvary for the remission of your sins. Say good-bye to the world and the devil and make sure you do not go back to them. Invite the Lord Jesus Christ into your life and ask Him to come in and become your personal Lord and Saviour. Ask Him to take absolute control of your life and all that concerns you.

THE INNER SECRETS
ray that your spiritual eyes be opened to behold wondrous things. Jeremiah 1: 19 says:
And they shall fight against thee; but they shall not prevail against thee; for I am with
thee, saith the LORD, to deliver thee.
If you have been pushed to the wall by one problem or the other, this message is for you; that is, when you want to fight back and the devil tries to scare you and prove to you that you are not strong enough to fight.
If you are a fighter for the Lord, I would like to show you two passages in the Bible that the devil does not want you to know so that you will not read them. A deliverance case may look tough but if
you quote these passages, the demons will flee. Revelation 18:1-10says:
And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power;
and the earth was lightened with his glory. And he cried mightily with a strong voice,
saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the
hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. For all nations have
drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have
committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the
abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of
her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues.
For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. Reward
her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the
cup which she hath filled fill to her double. How much she hath glorified herself, and lived
deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen,
and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. Therefore shall her plagues come in one day,
death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is
the Lord God who judgeth her. And the kings of the earth, who have committed fornication
and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail her, and lament for her, when they shall see the
smoke of her burning, Standing afar off for the fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas, that
great city Babylon, that mighty city! for in one hour is thy judgment come.
This passage prophesies the fall of Babylon, that kingdom of the devil on earth. Job 30:3-8 says:
For want and famine they were solitary; fleeing into the wilderness in former time
desolate and waste. Who cut up mallows by the bushes, and juniper roots for their meat.
They were driven forth from among men, (they cried after them as after a thief;) To dwell
in the clifts of the valleys, in caves of the earth, and in the rocks. Among the bushes they
brayed; under the nettles they were gathered together. They were children of fools, yea,
children of base men: they viler than the earth.
Evil spirits do not want you to quote these scriptures. I want you to keep them in your heart because
they have a purpose in your life.
WHAT IS A DOOR?
A door is an entrance or an exit It keeps out unwanted visitors and hinders those inside from going out. It is an essential part of a building. According to the Bible, it has a meaning. In the head of a man,
for example, there are seven different doors: two eyes, two ears, two nostrils and one mouth.
When Jesus calls Himself the door. He means that He is the entrance to the kingdom of heaven. Paul talks about the door of faith which, through him, was opened to the Gentiles. Paul was referring to the Gentiles’ opportunity to hear the Gospel. Psalm 141:3 also talks about keeping the door of the lips.
Set a watch, O LORD, before my mouth; keep the door of my lips.
THE INNER SECRETS
When God created everything in the beginning, it was a perfect work. The Bible says He examined everything He created and said they were all good. Then, the devil came into those things through
1. Mouth: Eve had a discussion with the serpent.
2. Ears: She hearkened to the serpent.
3. Eyes: Her eyes saw the beauty of the fruit.
4. Mouth: She ate the fruit.
5. Mouth: Adam ate too.
There are many doors through which problems get into good works in the lives of people. Sometimes, final solutions don’t come until you have located the doors that gave entry to the problems. When you chase out the enemy, you then close the door against future attacks.
There are three stages to deliverance
1. Cut off the spirit by chasing it out of the person.
2. Repair the destruction done by the spirit.
3. Keep it away from coming back by closing the doors.
The spirits in our environment have done a lot of havoc in the lives of many people. This is why I want you to take this message seriously and take the warfare prayers with aggression so that you will locate and chase out all the activities of these spirits.
Every geographical location has a peculiar spirit controlling it. The commonest evil spirits in Nigeria are as follows:
1. The African Witches: They go out at night to attend meetings, leaving their physical bodies. They
manifest in people putting their feet on the wall and travelling out. They have put marks on the lives
of many people.
Many churches are afraid of talking about witches because they don’t know the kind of attack they will receive. Note that, God kept you when you were ignorant of these things. So, He will keep you
when you tell others about them and deliver them.
2. The African Wizards: These are men that are in the demonic and occult world. Some people think
it is only women that are involved in witchcraft. Many men go about collecting virtues from women
and converting them to theirs. A man vomited his poverty into the life of a woman and she became
poor while he became rich.
3. Familiar Spirits or “Ogbanje”: The problems of some men began at the onset of the sexual
relationships they had with girls that had familiar spirits.
4. Water Spirits: In the Edo region of Nigeria, for example, they are called “Olokun”. In Yoruba
land, they are called “Yemoja”. In the sea towns like Lagos or Port-Harcourt, they are called
mammy water spirits or mermaids.
They are destroying so many lives and if we as Christians keep quiet and don’t warn people about
them, they will continue to destroy lives and their victims will land in hell. Already, they have
confused many people and businesses because they have been operating unhindered.
5. Spirits Impersonating the Dead: These are demon spirits that take the form of dead people and
roam about causing confusion.
6. Demon Idols: These are sent to paralyse and kill people.
7. Forest Demons: They are found in thick forests but sometimes they come to town to do harm to
A great havoc was done to this country many years ago, when witchcraft powers were allowed to
come on television and people watched them far into the night before going to bed. Even Christians were watching, saying they were learning from them.
A sister came to me one day and said she saw in her room physically the character of a film, “Ogunjinmi”. I asked her why she was watching such a film. Normally, nobody would invite a magician to his living room, but beloved, by watching them on television you have invited them and they can cause havoc. It is a satanic trap under the cover of entertainment. It is a door through which
the devil enters into many homes and put fear into the hearts of many people.
Many enter into more satanic traps in a bid to find solutions to their problems. Others enter into traps because they want power. They want to control others and be feared and respected. Some get into satanic traps because they want to know the future. Instead of knowing the One who owns the future, they consult diviners, read horoscopes, look into crystal balls, etc. You should not worry about the future because the One who owns the future is our Father.
Many get into these traps because of poverty and in a bid to get rich they consult and give their lives to the devil. For some, it is through foolish intellectual curiosity. They read all sorts of books on
astral projection, occultism, etc. and are pushed to put what they read into practice.
When a person is in the bondage of sin, he opens a door to the devil. Some people drink wine instead of hard drinks, thinking they are modest. Some have only one girl friend and think God will not judge them as fornicators.
If wickedness is in your heart and you are heartless, or if you have no feeling of pity or sympathy for those around you, you have opened a door to Satan.
Some people are spiritually blind, hence they fall into traps and feed at the devil’s table without knowing it. When you practise the religion of deception, a door is opened to the devil. Sometimes, people have a feeling that they are running mad. Some experience chains of problems and are perplexed. Sometimes, powers of darkness confront people openly; they are being pressed down on their beds and fed in their dreams. It is because a door has been opened.
When a divine promise on a person’s life is failing and all efforts to be successful prove abortive, when dullness and poverty set into the life of a rich person, or a person experiences unexplainable
failures and threats, these show that a door has been opened to the devil.
Many people move about like dogs, having girlfriends all over the place, thereby having illegitimate children. Such people are nailing their own coffin by themselves even before they die. When problems seem to multiply and trials seem unending, a door has been opened. When there is itching, heat or strange movement in the body, a door has been opened.
Beloved, demons or evil spirits have no loyalty to anybody. If you go to the hospital, you will find that what people are going through is as a result of conflicts between demons or against the power of God. For example, if parents consult a witch doctor because their child is convulsing, he puts incisions on the child and gives him or her concoctions to drink. By this, he assigns a demon to protect the child. Most times, the convulsion or whatever problem the child has, stops but he is being followed by a demon. If such a child encounters the power of God, there will be a conflict, and the demon will bow and the child will be set free.
We need to ask the Lord to help us search our lives to know all the doors that have been opened to the enemy and close them.
HOW TO CLOSE DOORS AGAINST THE ENEMY
1. Confess your sins to the Lord.
2. Ask for forgiveness.
3. Plead the blood of Jesus.
When a demon wants to attack a person or people, he looks for open doors, things that are not Godly. When there is no open door, he hangs around for opportunities. Sometimes, he succeeds due to the carelessness of the person. Unconfessed or cleverly concealed sin is a doorway to the devil. There are deaf and dumb spirits. They don’t hear your command, therefore, their activities continue. You have to ask God to make them hear and they will pack their load and go. Man is a spirit, soul and body. All these three areas can create open doors in the life of a person:
1. The Body: It has many doors and can be afflicted and eventually killed by evil powers. A person
can yield his or her body to sin through any of these doors. The intellect can be affected. Some
people allow incisions to be made on them, thereby giving these powers access to their blood. This
can be manipulated in witchcraft meetings and different kinds of diseases can develop and the
person’s strength can be sapped. Many people are being killed gradually either from the top or from
the lower region.
2. The Soul: This can gain control over the body or spirit. A witch can be in a place and her soul will
be in another place, causing havoc. This is possible because there is a demon attached to it. It links
the soul to the spirit. It can be cast out or attacked through the right prayers and the witch becomes
3. The Spirit: It is the part of man that has relationship with either God or satan. It can be wounded
through fights in the dream. Sometimes, the wound inflicted on it in the dream manifests physically.
Many fights that take place in the dream are not meant to kill but to wound the spirit of a person and
to render him or her helpless.
BIG SECRETS YOU NEED TO KNOW
Demons can physically manifest in the form of human beings. If a person has sexual intercourse with a demon that comes in the physical form, it will take the grace of God to get him delivered. The person will be in trouble and if he or she cannot trace it to the relationship, he or she may not be able to pray
A demon can manifest as a very beautiful, handsome or ugly person. It can take the physique of a person who really exists somewhere else. All these should not bother a christian who does not open any door to them.
Sometimes, certain objects can have demons attached to them. They are called spiritually contaminated objects. They include crucifixes, decorations, jewellery, clothing, etc. Those demons go about with the person as he or she goes about with what he or she wears or is adorned with.
The servants of satan can call up a demon and attach it to an object and present it to a person as a gift. There was a couple who received a lot of gifts from people at their wedding. After their honeymoon, they came home and unwrapped the gifts and in one carton they saw two cowry shells. These were
what a wicked person presented to them in the church, as a gift.
Christians should be very careful these days; they should not be ignorant of the devices of evil powers. You should be alert and careful about people you receive gifts from. Some people take food carelessly and eat without praying.
There are spirit spies that are programmed into domestic animals to gather day-to-day, first-hand
information about the person and relay it to these powers.
People are afraid of black cats. It is true that witches use black cats but the deception of the devil is to conceal the fact that they actually prefer the white ones. The eyes and ears of a domestic animal in many houses are for gathering information. If you want to carry out a test, pour anointing oil on your animals at home and see what happens. However, it is easier to deliver an animal from evil powers than a human being, because animals do not commit sin and so the devil has no legal right to insist on staying in their lives when they are being chased out.
It is possible to find out that the spirit of fornication that many people are battling with comes from the dogs they play with. A lot of people carry evil marks put on them by evil powers for identification to demons. Sometimes evil people steal strands of hair, nails, sweat, clothing, etc and give to demons so they can fish the owners out for destruction. These demons act like police dogs that sniff and
identify culprits with materials belonging to them. Psalm 74:20 says:
Have respect unto the covenant: for the dark places of the earth are full of the habitations
Perhaps you have not been praying aggressively, now is the time to start. There are many things to cut off, pull down, root out or rebuild.
Wickedness is being practised in the dark places of the world. When a person is fed in the dream, he wakes up heavy. Some people hear their names called and they wake up from sleep with a cry. It is
the spirit that is being summoned and it can be unto death if not prayerfully dealt with.
A lot of people get contaminated at a tender age, or when they start moving away from God through false teachings and doctrines.
THE IMPORTANCE OF DELIVERANCE
Is it possible to have an evil spirit as a Christian? YES. Why? It is because when a person gets born again, it is the spirit that is renewed but the mind and the body may still be under the control of the devil. A born again Christian cannot be possessed by demons unless he or she goes back to sin; but someone who is already demonised before conversion needs to go for deliverance. A believer filled
with the Holy Spirit can never be possessed.
There are two things that the Lord will not give the devil power over:
1. Your mind: The devil and his demons cannot read your mind, although sometimes they behave as if
2. Your will: They cannot control your will except you hand it over to them. Everyone has a will
power. There are many things you can do with your will power alone. You must learn to exercise
your will against things that you don’t want in your life.
DOORS IN OUR ENVIRONMENT
There are entry points and exits that we need to think about and close.
1. Idolatry: This is the worship of idols or bearing names that have to do with idol worship. The
ancestors of many families worshiped idols and dedicated their descendants to these idols. If your
family has a shrine or you have consulted a herbalist or native doctor before, or you have incisions
on your body, all these are open doors. Dedication of children to an idol is an open door because
the spirits of the idol will come and claim a right over these children. Sometimes, children are
dedicated to rivers, rocks, etc.
2. Chieftaincy titles are open doors to the devil because they go along with rituals and dedications.
A man of God once said that it was a demotion for a christian to get a chieftaincy title. A Christian
is a king, a prince of God and a priest. It is strange, that many people have been demoted just
because they want popularity.
3. When people fry and distribute bean cakes (locally called akara) to commemorate anything.
They and those who eat them are opening doors in their lives to the devil.
4. Carrying sacrifices to crossroads opens doors to the devil.
5. Consultation of white-garment prophets where the names of angels are invoked. Treating angel
Michael like Jesus also constitutes open doors to the devil and problems. Colossians 2: 18 says:
Let no man beguile you of your reward in a voluntary humility and worshiping of angels,
intruding into those things which he hath not seen, vainly puffed up by his fleshly mind.
This passage shows that believers are not meant to pray with the names of angels.
6. Incense: Burning incense is an open door. Candle burning, special use of selected Psalms as if
they were incantations, the taking of baths in rivers or sea shores or blood-bath, cracking or
breaking of eggs on people’s heads, taking perfumes from prophets, being camped in a white
garment place of worship under the guise of protection, all these are practices that open doors in
people’s lives to the devil.
7. Pilgrimage to mountains for special prayers on a yearly or monthly basis opens doors to
8. Use of special sponges and soaps which “prophets” call “holy” to have special or daily baths.
9. Immorality and sexual intercourse outside marriage calls for strange spirits to move from one
person to the other.
10. Possession of demonic materials for protection or decoration.
11. Astrology and horoscope consultation.
12. Evil inheritance: Some people got evil spirits passed on to them from their parents and ancestors
and this contaminated their lives.
13. Kissing a corpse physically or seeing oneself in the dream eating with dead relatives.
14. Consultation of soothsayers and fetish priests.
15. Incest – that is sexual intercourse with family members.
16. Having boys/girl-friends and concubines outside marriage. It is worse than polygamy.
17. Shaving hair when a relative dies.
18. Probing into the cause of death by conjuring evil spirits to give a clue to the cause of the death.
19. Pouring libation.
20. Forming blood covenants with people.
21. Loss of shoes on the wedding day or loss of wedding ring.
When you open the door to an evil spirit, the door closes and it abides with you. For you to pray through, you have to reopen the door for it to go out and you will now keep the door permanently closed to it. Romans 8:32-33 says:
He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him
also freely give us all things? Who shall lay any thing to the charge of God’s elect? It is
God that justifieth.
Romans 8:37 says:
Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.
The Bible says, “Children, this is the last hour.” The devil is increasing the tempo of his operation because his time is almost up. Many people have practised religion all their lives. It is time to practise the supernatural power of God. Let us prove to every witch and wizard around that they don’t have power like our God and they don’t have the final say on anything that concerns us, that God has the final say.
I want you to say these out loud:
1. God has the final say, over my life.
2. I cover myself with the blood of Jesus.
The Bible says that the devil is the accuser of the brethren. If the devil is accusing you day and night before God, petitioning every time, you can counter-petition against him. Take the following prayer points aggressively.
1. I counter-petition the devil, in the name of Jesus.
2. All my goodness swimming in the ocean of life, angels of God, begin to net them and take them
back for me, in the name of Jesus.
3. I reject the authority belonging to any demonic object kept secretly on my behalf, in the name of
4. Every doorway opened to the devil, be closed by the blood of Jesus, in the name of Jesus.
5. Holy Ghost, torment my tormentors, in Jesus’ name.
6. Every door that I opened to the devil (pick from the list below), be closed forever by the blood
of Jesus, in the name of Jesus.
-while I was in the womb
-the day I was born
-at my tender age
-at my adolescence
-at my youth
-in my adulthood
7. I bind and command every demon (insert from the list below) to flee, in the name of Jesus.
-over my body
-in charge of my spirit.
-over my soul
8. Any spiritually contaminated food that I have ever eaten, I neutralise your power, in the name of
9. I bind the power-demon operating any wicked spirit against me, in the name of Jesus.
10. My Father, perfect that which concerns me, in the name of Jesus.
11. O Lord, make a way in my wilderness and provide rivers in my desert, in the name of Jesus.
12. Thou power of The Highest, overshadow my life, in the name of Jesus.
13. Thou miracle working power of the Most High God, begin full-time manifestation in my life
now, in the name of Jesus.
14. My life and my destiny, reject bewitchment, in the name of Jesus.
15. Every power raising and strengthening dead problems in my life, die, in the name of Jesus.
16. My Father, turn the wisdom of my enemies to foolishness, in the name of Jesus.
17. My Father, turn the joy of the enemy over my life to sorrow, in the name of Jesus.
18. O Lord, cause my life to reflect You forever, in the name of Jesus.
19. Blood of Jesus, speak instant and permanent solution to my problems, in the name of Jesus.
20. Fire of the Holy Ghost, barricade my life and those of my family, in the name of Jesus.
21. My father, have mercy on me, in the name of Jesus.
22. In the name of Jesus, by the blood of Jesus, forward ever, backward never.
23. Oh! Lord, dig deep into my foundation, in Jesus’ name.
24. Oh! Lord, make me holy, in the name of Jesus.
25. Problems with stubborn roots, dry up, in Jesus’ name.
26. Serpent and scorpions from my foundation, die, in the name of Jesus.
27. Masquerading enemies, hear the word of the Lord, destroy yourself, in the name of Jesus.
28. Inherited warfare, collective warfare, die, in the name of Jesus.
29. Stubborn problems from my foundation, die, in the name of Jesus.
30. Holy ghost fire, holy ghost thunder, roar, destroy my oppressors, in the name of Jesus.
31. Vertical battles, horizontal battles, underground battles, troubling my life, die, in the name of
32. The enemy will not laugh me to scorn, by the power in the blood of Jesus.
33. Poison of darkness, hear the word of the Lord, come out of my life, in the name of Jesus.
34. Powers of the strongman, upon my destiny, die, in the name of Jesus.
35. Powers of the strongman, against my destiny, die, in the name of Jesus.
36. Owners of evil loads, carry your load, in Jesus’ name.
37. Problem mountain in my life, die, in the name of Jesus.
38. Serpent and scorpion, my life is not your candidate, die, in the name of Jesus.
39. Begin to thank God for answering your prayers.
