f you or someone you love is a descendant of a Mason, I recommend that you pray through the following prayer from your heart. Don’t be like the Masons who are given their obligations and oaths one line at a time and without prior knowledge of the requirements. First, bind spirits of deception, antichrist, witchcraft, and death in the name of Jesus Christ. Then read it through so you know what is involved. It is best to pray this aloud with a Christian witness or counselor present. We suggest a brief pause following each paragraph to allow the Holy Spirit to show any additional issues that may require attention.
Father God, creator of heaven and earth, I come to You in the name of Jesus Christ Your Son. I come as a sinner seeking forgiveness and cleansing from all sins committed against You, and others made in your image. I honor my earthly father and mother and all of my ancestors of flesh and blood and by adoption, but I utterly turn away from and renounce all their sins. I forgive all my ancestors for the effects of their sins on my children and me. I confess and renounce all of my own sins. I renounce Satan and all of his works in my family and me.
I renounce and forsake all involvement in Freemasonry or any other lodge or craft by my ancestors and myself. I renounce witchcraft, the principal spirit behind Freemasonry, and I renounce Baphomet, the Spirit of Antichrist and the curse of the Luciferian doctrine. I renounce the idolatry, blasphemy, secrecy, and deception of Masonry at every level. I specifically renounce the insecurity, the love of position and power, the love of money, covetousness, and greed, and the pride that would have led my ancestors into Masonry. I renounce all the fears that held them in Masonry, especially the fears of death, fears of men, and fears of trusting, in the name of Jesus Christ.
I renounce every position held in the lodge by any of my ancestors, including Tyier, Master, Worshipful Master, or any other. I renounce the calling of any man Master, for Jesus Christ is my only Master and Lord, and He forbids anyone else having that title. I renounce the entrapping of others into Masonry, and observing the helplessness of others during the rituals. I renounce the effects of Masonry passed on to me through any female ancestor who felt distrusted and rejected by her husband as he entered and attended any lodge and refused to tell her of his secret activities.

ALL OTHER DEGREES, SECRET LODGES AND SOCIETIES
I renounce any other secret words, attributing false gods’ names to God, and idolatrous symbols, such as
• the Horus, or All-Seeing Eye, which was the emblem of Osiris (the sun god), the creator worshiped by the ancient Egyptians and passed off on current day Masons as the eye of the one true God;
• the G, which the lower degree Masons are told represents geometry or the Great Architect of the Universe (who upper degree Masons learn is Lucifer) but actually can stand for whatever god one chooses, and in books for the upper degrees means “Generating Principal” (phallus);
• the Blazing Star, actually symbolizes various pagan gods and witchcraft;
• the obelisk, which symbolizes a phallus or penis as an emblem of resurrection (but not Christian resurrection);
• the mark in the form of squares and angles which marks the person for life;
• the point within a circle, which the first three degrees of Masons are taught represents the individual Mason inside the bounds of Masonic duty, but which is revealed to the upper levels Mason to represent the sexual union of Osiris and Isis, signifying the prolific powers of nature;
• the Masonic square and compass which likewise represents the sex act;
• the Apron, a symbol of the Masonic belief that salvation must be earned which is a direct violation of Scripture;
• the jewel or talisman that may have been made from this mark sign and worn at lodge meetings;
• the Shriner’s fez, which celebrates the Muslim massacre of 50,000 Christians in the Moroccan city of Fez;
• and all others.
I renounce all allegiances to individuals or organizations that are in conflict with the primary allegiance of my life, Jesus Christ, as revealed in God’s word, the Bible. I ask God to cut off all these curses and their effects on my family and me. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray for the healing of the any area where healing is needed by any of us.
I renounce all the other oaths taken by any of my ancestors or me, the rituals and the curses of every other lodge, degree and order involved in Freemasonry anywhere in the world.

I renounce the symbol “G” and its veiled pagan symbolism and bondages. I renounce and utterly forsake the Great Architect Of The Universe, who is revealed in the higher degrees as Lucifer, and his false claim to be the universal fatherhood of God. I also renounce the false claim that Lucifer is the Morning Star and Shining One and I declare that Jesus Christ is the Bright and Morning Star of Revelation 22:16.
I renounce the All-Seeing Third Eye of Freemasonry, or Horus, in the forehead and the obelisk and their pagan and occult symbolism. I renounce all false communions taken, all mockery of the redemptive work of Jesus Christ on the cross of Calvary, all unbelief, confusion and depression, and all worship of Lucifer as God. I renounce and forsake the lie of Freemasonry that man is not sinful, but just imperfect, and so can redeem himself through good works. I rejoice that the Bible states that I cannot do a single thing to earn my salvation, but that I can only be saved by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and what He accomplished on the cross of Calvary.
Father God, I repent of and seek forgiveness for the sins committed by my ancestors and me
• of walking on unholy ground, including Freemasonry, Mormon, occultic and pagan property dedicated to the worship of false gods;
• for the sin of idolatry committed by my ancestors and me of looking to anyone or anything other than the one true Savior, Jesus Christ, for salvation, rescue, protection, or provision;
• for all subversion of justice practiced by the Freemasons or any other organization to which my ancestors or I belonged;
• for the collaboration of the Freemasons in the satanic conspiracy to rule the world.
Father God, I confess to You that when my ancestors and I complained against You we gave Satan a legal right to put the Destroyer in our bloodlines. And when we rebelled against You and rejected Your rightful place as our God, we gave Satan a legal right to deceive us with all the gods of the gentiles. Some of us committed the sin of idolatry by joining Freemasonry. Even if they (we) joined Freemasonry ignorant of its true nature, we are nevertheless guilty of all of its sins. I acknowledge your justice in putting a curse on our bloodlines for this sin and the many sins that followed either by commission or by allegiance to the organization committing the sins. These sins include, in addition to those already confessed, all of the atrocities of satanic ritual abuse practiced at secret levels of Freemasonry: blasphemous rituals, blood sacrifices, animal and human sacrifices, sexual sacrifices, rape, bestiality, sexual immorality, illegitimate births, breeding babies for the purpose of sacrificing them, torture, murder, violence, and mind control (by ElectroVoltOverLoad, withholding normal love, soul shattering, torture, programming and demonization) of infants and children, plus any others. Thank You for Your mercy toward me when You called me to Yourself and gave me faith to believe in Your Son Jesus’ atonement for me on the cross. He was made a curse for me so that I no longer have to live under any curse. I ask You, Father God, in the name of Jesus, to forgive all of this generational iniquity in my bloodlines and cleanse it away so the curses do not come down to me or to my children to a thousand generations. I ask You, Jesus, to cleanse my body, soul, and spirit and to deliver me of all the effects of this generational iniquity.
Now dear Father God, I ask humbly for the blood of Jesus Christ, Your Son, to cleanse me from all these sins I have confessed and renounced, to cleanse my spirit, soul and every part of my body which has been effected by these sins, in Jesus name!
Lord Jesus, I ask You to destroy the spiritual equivalents of the physical objects used in Masonry that I now symbolically remove and give to You .
• the hoodwink (a blindfold)
• the veil of mourning
• the mail around the neck
• the noose, which I cut from around the neck and gather together with the cable-tow running down the body
• the ring of the false Freemasonry marriage covenant, which I renounce, from the ring finger of the right hand
• the chains and bondages of Freemasonry on the body
• the ball and chains from the ankles
• all Freemasonry effects, regalia and armor, especially the apron
• all KKK or other secret organization regalia
I renounce every evil spirit associated with Masonry and witchcraft and all other sins and, in the name of Jesus Christ, I command Satan’s evil spirits to be bound up into one, leaving nothing of evil remaining, and to leave me now, touching or banning no one, and to go to the place appointed for you by the Lord Jesus, never to return to me or my family. I claim the promise of God’s word that whosoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be delivered. Jesus, I ask to be delivered of every spirit of sickness, infirmity, curse, affliction, addiction, disease or allergy associated with these sins that I have confessed and renounced and I ask You to heal me and my family of all effects they have had.
I surrender to God’s Holy Spirit and to no other spirit all the places in my life where these sins have effected me. I ask You, Lord, to fill me with (and baptize me in) Your Holy Spirit now according to the promises in Your word. I take to myself the whole armor of God promised in Ephesians 6 and rejoice in its protection as Jesus surrounds me with His Holy Spirit. I enthrone You in my heart. Lord Jesus, for You are my Lord and Savior, and my source of eternal life. Thank You, Father God, for Your mercy, Your forgiveness and Your love, in the name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
