Let us not be surprised that we often have to walk through the valley of the shadow of death. Evil exists and is active. But we must always know how to enter God’s protection to be safe and free. The best tool for this is the deliverance prayer, prayer for deliverance from evil, and prayer for deliverance and healing.
Evil is Awake Again
God knows we will face difficult times as the devil tries to carve out new territory for himself. That is why the devil creates wars outside of God’s children so that he can get inside them. Satan wants to torment us and make us believe God is not enough to save us. And when we get tired of fighting the spiritual battle, the evil one can easily conquer our hearts.
God is on Our Side
The good news is that God is all we need, and He will surely hear our prayer for deliverance when we cry out to Him. We can ask for deliverance by praying for healing or deliverance from addiction, depending on what we need.
Jesus warned us to pay heed against deceit and not be in trouble (Matthew 24: 4-6). Everyone has something to say about what’s happening around us, but in God alone, we have a lasting solution (Isaiah 40:29-31).

Lord, destroy the work of the devil in my life. “For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil” (1 John 3:8).
Keep praising God for your victory in Him (Acts 16:25-27).
Call His name in the time of trouble and afflictions. “I will call upon the LORD, who is worthy to be praised: so shall I be saved from mine enemies” (Psalms 18:3).
Heavenly Father, I believe whoever calls on your name shall be saved (Acts 2:21); I call upon you today for my deliverance.
Pray for one another in one accord (James 5:16, Galatians 6:1).
Deliverance Prayer from Addiction
Deliverance prayer becomes very important when we find ourselves in situations we can not handle on our own when we are addicted to some bad habits. “Is anyone among you suffering? Let him pray. Is anyone cheerful? Let him sing praise” (James 5:13). If we genuinely believe in the power of prayer, the following deliverance prayer will work miracles and deliverance from addiction as we pray in faith.
- But upon Mount Zion there shall be deliverance (Obadiah 1:17). So Lord, set me free from all captivities according to Your word.
- Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler and from the noisome pestilence (Psalms 91:3).
- Shall the prey be taken from the mighty or the lawful captive delivered? But thus saith the Lord, Even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children (Isaiah 49:24-25). Oh Lord, deliver me from the captivity beyond my strength.
- My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions’ mouths that they have not hurt me: forasmuch as before him innocency was found in me; and also before thee, O king, have I done no hurt (Daniel 6:22). Deliver me from the predators from my adversaries.
- Oh Lord, send your angels of liberation to set me free today (Acts 12:6-11).
First, problems entered the world immediately after man sinned; the devil could gain entrance and manipulate the children of God. Through the sinful nature of man, some engaged in various addictions. It becomes essential for a man to be free of these burdens to enter the kingdom of God (Galatians 5:19-21). Deliverance prayer can help.
1. Accept Jesus as your Lord and Saviour (John 3:16): This is the 1st step and a significant one to deliverance. “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12)
2. Settle the victory in your heart: “Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you” (1 Peter 5: 7). First, we have to come to the complete and absolute decision that we are the victors. The victory is ours, and the battle is the Lord’s (1 John 4: 4).
So we must take our shield in the word, taking communion every 30 minutes if necessary. Our fellowship with the Lord boosts our confidence in Him to dispel every thought of failure and defeat—both for us as individuals and the nation as a whole.
We’re more than a conqueror through Christ (Romans 8:37) and must talk and act as such. It is valid as far as He’s concerned. “We should rejoice in our victory and say Thank You, Lord! Don’t look up at the devil, already defeated enemy. Instead, you look down at him. He’s under your feet! (Ephesians 1:17-23).
Is it possible to have that kind of confidence amid the nature of the threats we’re facing now? Yes! “The man who fears the Lord and delights greatly in His commandments “shall not be afraid of evil tidings: his heart is fixed, trusting in the Lord” (Psalm 112). Once you have that assurance, nothing – not even wars and rumors of wars – will be able to move you.
3. Proclaim your deliverance! Psalms 91:2-3; Revelation 12:11. This is very clear, our words are important, and they work. Finally, this is a sure way to victory. The word is powerful (Hebrews 4:12), but when mixed with faith (Romans 10:17). Sometimes it involves making a bold decision, “I’m not gonna focus on my problems anymore, I live with the word of God (John 1:14).
God Will Not Leave You
Psalm 49 verse 8 says, “For the redemption of their soul is precious, and it ceaseth forever.” God has a precious plan for salvation. “The name of the LORD is a strong tower: the righteous runneth into it, and is safe” (Proverbs 18:10). As a father, God will never let us fail. So He will always be there when the time is right: “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” Thus always believe in God, and pay attention to Him even when things get tough.
Finally, we must start trying to live the way God wants us to. Then our lives will slowly begin to change. God brought us into this world to do great things; you have so much potential. Apostle Paul wrote, “And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness” (2 Corinthians 12:9); we must learn how to key into this great grace, which is available to us in God our Father.
“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble” Psalms 46:1.
So, don’t forget deliverance prayer for a breakthrough for healing and from addiction. Remain blessed.
