……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….

 Heavenly Father, I thank You for the blessings that have come down to me from my ancestors on my father’s line and my mother’s line.

But I also acknowledge that as a result of their sinful beliefs and practices, they had also sinned against you in many ways.

Today I choose to forgive my ancestors for the consequences of their sexual sins that have affected me.

Please break the yoke and power of this generational curse of sexual sins off me.

Please forgive me too for my own sexual sins.

I know I am enslaved to these sins and that I am powerless to deliver myself.

I acknowledge that You can help me and that Jesus have already paid the debt for my sin.

All I need to do is claim it personally, for Jesus, had bore all of my sins, past, present and future when He died for me on the cross.

I accept the gift of grace offered to me through Jesus’ sacrificial death.

I thank You that You know everything about me. Help me to be completely truthful with You. I don’t need to hide any more.

If I confess my sins, You are faithful and just and will forgive my sins and purify me from all unrighteousness (1 John 1:9).

Father, right now I choose to repent and renounce my sins of *(sexual lust / fornication / adultery / mental sexual fantasies and pleasure / pornography / masturbation / lasciviousness / sexual promiscuity / debauchery / sensuality / prostitution / homosexuality / lesbianism / voyeurism / degrading passions / …………………….. / ……………………… ).

* (Please pick only those that are relevant to you. You may add in those that are not found here).

Father, You sent Jesus to rescue me from this body of death!

I don’t have to be a prisoner to sin. This battle that rages over my body originates in my mind making me a slave to the sin that is still at work within me.

Right now, I surrender my mind to You.

Please cleanse my mind on the conscious, subconscious and unconscious levels.

Jesus, please Lord over my mind, my thought patterns and attitudes.

You have searched me and You know me. You know when I sit and when I rise; You perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; You are familiar with all my ways (Psalm 139:1-3).

Come and dwell in me, Lord, by Your Holy Spirit, and set me free to live in Your resurrection life.

Please break the control and manipulation of sexual thoughts and images over my mind, body and sexuality.

Please forgive me and set me free from all consequences of my sins.

Please cleanse me of all defilement of spirit, mind, will, emotions and body.

Cleanse my eyes, ears, hands and sexual organs too.

In Jesus’ name, Father, lift off me all sexual spirits of lust.

The reason Jesus appeared was to destroy the devil’s work (1 John 3:7-8).

Lord, I have been a willing party to the devil’s work. Thank You that You appeared on this earth to die and be raised again to destroy his work.

Please destroy the works the devil has accomplished in me and through me. Set me apart for Your work from now on.

According to Your Word, no one who is born of God will continue to sin, because God’s seed remains in him (1 John 3:9).

Please help me to understand and admit that I cannot simply go on and on indefinitely in my sin and claim to belong to You.

I acknowledge to You that my body was not meant for sexual immorality, but for You, Lord.

You were meant to take authority over this body and bring it sanctification and meaning.

I know that my body is a member of Christ Himself.

I shall not then take the members of Christ and unite them in ungodly sexual relationships, whether real or virtual (1 Cor 6:13-15).

I renounce the use of my body as an instrument of unrighteousness and by so doing, ask You to break the sexual stronghold that the devil has brought into my life.

Please help me to exercise godly control over my sexual urges.

I have simply misused my body. Please cleanse it for Your use.

I present my body to You as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to You and I choose to reserve the sexual use of my body only with my spouse.

In Jesus’ name, I renounce the lie of the devil that my body is not clean.

Father, I thank You that You have totally cleansed me unconditionally.

Jesus please Lord over my body and my bodily appetites, my sexuality and sexual expressions.

Therefore, I can now accept myself. And I choose to accept myself and my body as cleansed, in Jesus’ name.

I know that my body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in me, whom I have received from You. I am not my own; I was bought at a price. Therefore please help me to honour You with my body (1 Corinthians 6:19-20).

Since I have been raised with Christ, help me to set my heart on things above, where Christ is seated at Your right hand, not on earthly things (Colossians 3:1).

Please take my passions and redirect them first toward You. Be the chief focus of all my passions and create a new heart within me.

In Jesus’ name. Amen!

  7. Guilty says:

    I pray this prayer. I’m a guilty man. I literally feel my soul ache. I’ve held on to this sin, kept this lie in my life, the guilt is literally killing me. Not being able to tell anyone, my church , my family , my fiancée . I’m a fraud and an empty shell of a man. How I have hurt God and disrespected Him by yielding to this sin. I am very sorry I allowed it, sorry I hurt God and feel seperated from Him, the damage that this is going to cause to my fiancée and family will be devistating . Irrepairable. Trust broken, feeling deceived . I regret what I have done. I don’t deserve forgiveness . I am a ruined soul. God please forgive me. I cry. A painful cry. God please have mercy on me. Only you can change what I can’t .

    This is a very good prayer. I am going to have to read it again, I try my best not to succumb to masturbation and to pornagraphy videos. I just want to be totally free and delievered from this sin and not to go back into it. I dont sin with another person, just with self and then i feel sickly and bad and i am tired of feeling this way. I know 5 or 10 minutes of self pleasure is not good and i know it is a curse on my family. Please pray for me that this curse ends with me and that it is broken off of us for good.

    Thank god i saw this prayer i felt was ruined and didn’t know what to do. I felt like a dirty lier for making hundreds of oats that i went back on and broke. I feel beg you father God for forgiveness.
    I fell the pain of these sexual manipulations of the devil in my life.I no longer want to dwell in the counsel of the ungodly that pleasure is only for a moment but yours is everlasting.I want to be with you when my fleshly body fails. I Feel this prayer was a good start.

  27. Julie says:

    I need lots of prayer for complete deliverance over sexual sin. This particular sin has beset me most of my life. I hate it. I struggle with it at times. I love the Lord and want to live for him….I falter at times with sexual sin. and loathe the way it makes me feel after the fact. Please pray for me….I am struggling. I feel like I am so far from God. I miss his Holy Spirit presence and walking with him. I know he will never forsake me nor will he leave me. It’s this sin that seems to take over. I hate it. This sin seems to have a stronghold on me.

    I have had experiences with God so powerfully…Holy Spirit presence was so powerful I could barely contain it. I knew it was God. I miss those experiences. I miss that walk. I need God back again just like that.

  28. Eric says:

    I’ve been struggling for months now and I’ve hit an all new low. I feel God slipping out of my life by my own doing. I just pulled over on the side of the road and Goggled for help and found this. I must have paused at least a half dozen time in shame because I have turned my back on God and those I love, and those who think I am something I am not. I’m a fraud that has masqueraded as something he is not, and all along I thought I was smarter than everyone else and no one would find out, we’ll God has always known and I could never bare the shame that would come from my indiscretions. This is my new start, asking for forgiveness and releasing my mind to God to cleanse it of the impure bombardment coming from today society that has turned so far away from Our Father. Thank You

  29. badguy says:

    I am not a Christian, but I do see the values in the Prayer above. I do admit the sins that I have done so far. Guilty of many sins includes, cheat, maturate, prostitution, procrastination, and many more… but, living as a father, husband as if I am a good human being. Feeling very guilty. I surrender all my sins in front of you. Please cleanse me, my organs, soul, thought and my feelings. I hope Jesus will hear from any human without any religious barriers.

  30. Michael Vickery says:

    Thank you for this site. I am in need of kicking out this stronghold on me so I can be a godly man for my girlfriend and future wife.

  31. austin says:

    thank you Jesus for your mercy.. please wash me with your precouse blood.Am.seriously held down by this sin. may your prayers save me in Jesus name

  32. Trish says:

    God is amazing and will indeed, as we see Him, restore us to the Father in His precious name. :-) Thank you, God bless your life for sharing His comforting Word.

  33. Tony says:

    Praise God for His eternal mercies. In our weakness his glory is shown by his forgiveness. I believe God wants us pure and blameless and will accomplish His work if we surrender to Him. Christ hung on the cross bleeding for all our sins and overcame Satan and his workers by His resurection. Hallelujah. What a Mighty Loving God we serve.

  34. mbell says:

    indeed this prayer is powerfull;I’m gonna be praying it until I feel and see the change;I know I’m getting out of this old nature; things will change,they have to.Lord I give you praises

  35. Mike F says:

    Thank you so much for this prayer. I have read some of comments left and relieved that I can share with people who are suffering as much as me. I am a new Christian of 18 months and everyday I pray the Lord to free me from this burden but I understand now that its my burden to bare and to control. Satan will always whisper encouragement to me to give into sexual sin and I find I am not strong enough to resist him and I am left feeling guilty and full of shame. I know I am letting Satan win and control me. I am battling alcohol issues also and with the help of the AA I am in control. I just wish I can be as strong as I am with alcohol cravings as to sexual cravings. Satan has had many footholds on me but the sexual foothold is his biggest. So my new friends let’s pray together and for each other. Bless you all. Mike
