Prayer for Deliverance from the Tyranny of False Beliefs
Prayer Booklet

 
Throughout the day, whenever you feel oppressed, stuck, and weighed down with fatigue in trying to accomplish your tasks, use these prayers of deliverance to overcome false beliefs working covertly to obstruct you.

God will always help you if you ask constantly for deliverance, and, in accordance with the traditions of the Christian faith, maintain a pure heart that desires humility, modesty, chastity, and detachment from worldly pleasures.

 

     

Your battle is with your own false beliefs,
not with what circumstances or other people do, or have done, to you.

     

 
 

About False Beliefs

False beliefs are created in all of us through childhood experiences of emotional distress. Although based in erroneous childhood logic, these beliefs help children to cope with over¨whelming helplessness, but, if left uncorrected, the beliefs will continue on into adulthood as pernicious, hidden motives for self-sabotage and failure.

False beliefs often get started through the ďvoiceĒ of someone (i.e., a parent) speaking negatively to you, but then you can internalize that voice as your own, hoping that if you agree with someone who is critical of you then maybe you can make that person accept you.

Your mind constantly repeats false beliefs; your freedom from their oppression requires constant prayer for divine assistance.

Examples of false beliefs:

I donít matter.
I have no right to succeed.
I am worthless.
I am bad.
I am disgusting.
I cannot figure this out on my own.
I am ugly and no one will ever love me.
Without my fatherís [or motherís] love I am doomed.
Iíll never change. Iím stuck.
Itís hopeless. Give it up.
No one cares about me.
God hates me.

 

     

Although false beliefs are purely psychological and are not evil, they can be openings for diabolical oppression. Hence the Prayer for Deliverance from the Tyranny of False Beliefs has a similarity to the Prayer for Deliverance from the Tyranny of Evil.

     

 

 

Prayer for Deliverance from the Tyranny of False Beliefs

 
Recollect the false beliefs to which you are susceptible. Then work through the process of understanding the original protective purpose of any particular belief, and, to sustain your desire to be free of your bondage to your false beliefs, say the following prayer regularly.

 
IN the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. Amen.

AINT Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle; be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray: and do thou, O Prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, cast into hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.

IET God arise; let His enemies be scattered. Let those who hate Him flee before Him. As smoke is blown away, so will they be blown away; like wax that melts before the fire, so all lies shall perish at the presence of God.

I Lord, hear my prayer.
And let my cry come unto You.

IORD holy Father, almighty eternal God, I beseech You to deliver me by Your power from the tyranny of my false beliefs; from their snares and lies; and from their foul grip of addictions, immodesty, irreverence, unchas-tity, lust, anger, and hatred. Deign, O Lord, to grant me Your mighty protection and to keep me safe through our Lord Jesus Christ, Lord Jesus Christ, Your Son, Who lives and reigns with You in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, through all the ages of ages. Amen.

From my false beliefs [specify] and from the temptations they inflict on me,
deliver me, O Lord.
That my love for You may drive from me the desire for self-sabotage and negative thinking,
I beseech You to hear me.
That I may serve You in purity, peace, and truth, with freedom from the tyranny of lies,
grant this, O Lord.
 

Then repeat to yourself the true belief that counters each of your false beliefs.

Examples of false beliefs transformed into true beliefs:
I donít matter.    My life matters to God.
I have no right to succeed.    God wants me to develop my talents.
I am worthless.    To God, every soul is precious.
I am bad.    Sins are bad, but those who renounce their sins are good.
I am disgusting.    Sins are disgusting, yet every soul who seeks purity is beautiful to God.
I cannot figure this out on my own.    With Godís help I can understand this.
I am ugly and no one will ever love me.    A pure heart is beautiful, and God loves all who seek Him with pure hearts.
Without my fatherís [or motherís] love I am doomed.    When I love God I have hope.
Iíll never change. Iím stuck.    With Godís help I can change.
Itís hopeless. Give it up.    Hope is in prayer, and I will keep praying.
No one cares about me.    I care about God.
God hates me.    God wants good for everyone.
