Prayer of Renunciation of Roman Catholicism

Heavenly Father, 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 my 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 of the spirit by adoption and godparents, but I utterly turn away from and renounce all their sins. I forgive all my ancestors for the effects of their sins and iniquities on my children and me. I confess and renounce all of my own sins, known or unknown and I accept personally the sacrifice that Jesus gave Himself for me on the cross. I renounce and rebuke Satan and every spiritual power of his affecting me and my family, in the name of Jesus Christ.

True Holy Creator God, in the name of the True Lord Jesus Christ, in accordance with Jude 8-10; Psalm 82:1, and 2 Chronicles 18, I request you to move aside all Celestial Beings, including Principalities, Powers, and Rulers, and to forbid them from harassing, intimidating or retaliating against me and all participants in this ministry today.

I renounce and annul every covenant made with Death by my ancestors or myself, including every agreement made with Sheol, and I renounce the refuge of lies and falsehoods that have been hidden behind.

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I renounce and forsake all ungodly involvement in Roman Catholicism by my ancestors and myself. I renounce every covenant, every blood covenant, and every alliance with Roman Catholicism or the spiritual powers behind it made by my family or me. I also renounce and repent of all permission I have ever granted to be deceived, or that was granted by my parents or previous generations without my awareness or consent.

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I renounce every form of ungodly authority and all ungodly power, and I repent for submitting to all ungodly authority. I repent for my loyalty towards the Roman Catholic Church, and its Popes, Cardinals, Archbishops, Bishops, and Priests when that loyalty and obedience should have been to Jesus Christ. I also repent and renounce any and all impartations I received through any laying on of hands, including by any false priesthood and all religious deception. I especially reject the false teaching and belief in the infallibility of the pope, because only God is true, and every man is a liar, according to Romans 3 verse 4.

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I repent for believing in a church that has kept people from understanding the Holy Bible, when that has the Words of Life. I humbly request to be exempted from the punishment for adding or deducting from God’s word recorded in Revelation 22 verses 18 & 19. Please help me understand Your Word the Holy Bible, and to trust it and apply it to my life in a way that will bring glory to Your name, and benefit my spiritual growth and maturity.

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I renounce the pagan syncretism taught alongside true Biblical teaching by the Roman Catholic Church. I reject and repent of all pagan beliefs and practices, and ask to be set free from all such pagan influences in my mind, my will, my emotions, my heart, my conscience, my imagination, and my habits.

I choose to forgive everyone who has taught me false doctrine and ungodly religious practices, including the so-called ‘Sacrifice of the Mass’. I also renounce and reject the calling on the spirits of the dead to protect me that occurs at every mass. In repenting for all these, I also choose to forgive myself for my active participation or acquiescent acceptance of all such beliefs and practices, in the name of Jesus Christ. I ask for mercy on all who taught me false doctrines and practices and the conviction of the Holy Spirit of the error of their ways, and that they would discover the truth and teach that instead, in Jesus’ name.

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I renounce and repent of every form of idolatry, including the idolatry of the Holy Mother Church, and any false worship and spiritual adultery I indulged in, even in my ignorance that your Word forbids such practice in Exodus 20 verse 5 and elsewhere. I choose to worship The True Creator God, revealed as the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. Please teach me how to worship You in spirit and in truth.

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I repent and renounce every devotion, veneration, worship, and idolatry of the Virgin Mary. I recognize and accept that Mary, otherwise known as Miriam by her Hebrew name, was a good woman chosen by God the Father to bear and bring up the Lord Jesus Christ with her husband Joseph, but that she recognized that she was a sinner needing to make a sacrifice for her personal sins, as confirmed by Luke 2:22-24, and as was the Scripture-based custom of her day. I also reject and renounce the falsely claimed Co-Mediatrix and Intercessory roles of Mary – the mother of Jesus – the Immaculate Conception of Mary, her Perpetual Virginity (despite having at least six other named children) and her Bodily Assumption into Heaven; all of which have no Biblical basis whatever, but are the doctrines of men imposed on Bible-deprived members.

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I renounce the belief in the post-death apparitions of Mary, such as the Lady of Lourdes, the Lady of Fatima, the Lady of Guadeloupe, and the Lady of Medjugorje, I reject all instructions from these and all other similar apparitions because too many of those instructions were contrary to the revealed Word of God, thereby proving the spiritism involved in these.

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I repent for praying to dead people, and the necromancy and spiritism involved when the Holy Bible in Deuteronomy 18 verse 11 and elsewhere forbids that practice. I ask Your forgiveness for my ignorance of Your clear instructions forbidding this, Heavenly Father. I repent for all belief that dead people can answer my prayers. Please help me learn how to pray in a way that is acceptable to You.

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I repent and renounce all dedication of my life to dead saints, including Mary, and also any dedication to any organization, including the Roman Catholic Church. In canceling that now, I choose to dedicate my life to the Lord Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of the Living God, and to the purposes of His Kingdom.

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I repent, renounce, and cut off all ungodly soul ties and connections with any dead saints that I have been dedicated to or chosen for me in my ignorance of Your Word, the Holy Bible. I repent for every time I asked any dead saint to pray on my behalf since this practice is also forbidden in the Bible. I repent for every honor I ever performed to any dead saint where such honor was inconsistent with the Bible and God’s revealed will. I ask to be set free from all confusion that praying to saints has caused, and the spiritism this involved, and I request the removal of all harmful influence they have had over my life.

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I repent and renounce all trust in dedicated objects, including medals, scapulars, statues, sacred heart posters and paintings, rosary beads, holy water, votive candles, sacred relics, and any kissing or bowing to any alleged sacred object or novenas.

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I repent and renounce all trust in any ‘sacrament’ that does not have a solid Biblical basis, including infant baptism, confirmation, first communion or Eucharist, confession, penance, and extreme unction.

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I renounce all beliefs that are contrary to Your revealed Word and will, and I ask for You to renew my mind and my heart, and to help me recognize all false teaching and beliefs when I hear or see them. Please protect me from all spiritual deception, regardless of source, in Jesus’ name. I also repent for trusting in rituals and objects and attributing power to them, instead of trusting Your love for me and relying on Your power, Your love, and Your faithfulness.

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I reject and repent of the shameless use of indulgences to obtain money from members of the Roman Catholic Church by priests by fraud, with false and unsubstantiated promises of quicker release from the imaginary place of the dead called Purgatory, or of the falsely promised cancellation of sins. Lord Jesus, I choose and seek Your assistance by Your Holy Spirit for righteous behavior and motives whenever I deal with issues of money and property.

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I reject, repent and renounce every form of sexual immorality, perversion, pedophilia, and the hypocrisy involved in the Roman Catholic Church by priests and members of other orders over their church members and all others that have been allowed for hundreds of years. I also reject the enforced celibacy of the clergy, priests, and nuns, as that is not a requirement for ministry to Jesus Christ in the Holy Bible. I repent of every sexual sin that I have committed by thought, word, imagination, or deed, in Jesus’ name. Holy Spirit, please help me to resist every form of sexual sin and give me a pure heart I so may bring glory to the Lord Jesus Christ by my conduct.

I thank you, Heavenly Father, for the ability to discern the difference between the truth of Your revealed will through the Holy Bible and the doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church where these differ from Your Word. In any way I cannot see these differences, please enable me to recognize all errors and false teaching. I especially renounce and repent of ever believing the anti-Biblical teachings of transubstantiation and purgatory, and that my salvation may only be obtained by being baptized into the membership of the Roman Catholic Church as an infant. In rejecting these false teachings, I choose to trust in the Lord Jesus Christ, and what He did for me on the Cross of Calvary, in His birth, death, and resurrection, and ask to have my name recorded in the Lamb’s Book of Life (Revelation 21:27). Consequently, I ask to be exempted from the plagues and the rejection by You based on Revelation 22 verses 18 and 19.

Heavenly Father, true holy Creator God, I thank You for helping me live in the freedom that Christ died for me and that is provided by your Holy Spirit. Help me to grow into a strong, mature, and fruitful follower of Your Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you for your goodness, faithfulness, mercy, and love toward me. Teach me your ways that I may walk strongly on your paths designed by you for me to walk. Be glorified through my life, and show your love and character through me, so that others may see Jesus in me.

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I renounce and break every generational curse because of my ancestors’ involvement with Roman Catholicism or occultic groups and actions.

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I renounce and rebuke every evil spirit associated with Roman Catholicism, spiritism, occultic mysticism, and all other sins and iniquities. Lord Jesus, I ask you to now set me free from all spiritual and other bondages, in accordance with the many promises of the Bible. In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I now take the delegated authority given to me and bind every spirit of sickness, infirmity, curse, affliction, addiction, disease, or allergy associated with these sins I have confessed and renounced, including every spirit empowering all iniquities inherited from my family.

I exercise the delegated authority from the Risen Lord Jesus Christ over all lower levels of evil spirits and demons which have been assigned to me, and I command that all such demonic beings are to be bound up into one, to be separated from every part of my humanity, whether perceived to be in the body or trapped in the dimensions, and they are not permitted to transfer power to any other spirits or to call for reinforcements.

In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I command every evil spirit to leave me now, touching or harming no one, and go to a place appointed for you by the Lord Jesus Christ, never to return to me or my family, and I command that you now take all your memories, roots, scars, works, nests and habits with you. I surrender to God’s Holy Spirit and to no other spirit in all the places in my life where these sins and iniquities have been.

Holy Spirit, I ask that you show me anything else that I need to do or to pray so that my family and I may be totally free from the consequences of the sins of Roman Catholicism, Witchcraft, Spiritism, and all related Paganism and Occultism.

[Pause, while listening to God, and pray as the Holy Spirit leads you.]

Father, I ask humbly for the blood of Jesus Christ, your Son, and my Saviour, to cleanse me from all these sins I have confessed and renounced, to cleanse my spirit, my soul, my mind, my emotions, and every part of my body which has been affected by these sins, in the name of Jesus Christ. I also command every cell in my body to come into divine order now and to be healed and made whole as they were designed by my loving Creator, including restoring all chemical imbalances and neurological functions, controlling all cancerous cells, reversing all degenerative diseases, and I sever the DNA and RNA of any mental or physical diseases or afflictions that came down through my family bloodlines. I also ask to receive the perfect love of God that casts out all fear, in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

I ask you, Lord, to fill me with your Holy Spirit now according to the promises in your Word. I take to myself the whole armor of God in accordance with Ephesians Chapter Six, and rejoice in its protection as Jesus surrounds me and fills me with His Holy Spirit. I enthrone you, Lord Jesus, in my heart, for you are my Lord and my Saviour, the source of eternal life. Thank you, Father, for your mercy, your forgiveness, and your love, in the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.

        I never believed in the Roman Catholic Church, even when I was becoming awake to Christianity, but I married a Catholic husband so I attended just because. I learned more about God through the Bible, life afflictions, and my own will. The Holy Spirit led me to know it is not of God more and more throughout the years. I prayed your prayer for myself and my husband (and in-laws), because I attended the sessions even though I never believed in the Catholic Church. 3/4 way done with the prayer, I started getting sleepy, vision going in and out, and my mind was blanking out aka feeling like fainting. A tiny part of me thought ‘maybe I should stop praying,’ but the majority of me said ‘no way; goodbye curses.’ So I believe the Catholic Church did have a hold of me also. Thanks for your prayer. God bless!

    I grew up in strong catholic background. Wore the scapula went to catechism catholic school etc. I prayed this prayer of renunciation and went through great deliverance (yawning and burping) and had great joy afterwards. Had repented in past for involvement in Catholicism but never received deliverance like I did after praying this prayer. Thank you for posting extreme truth on what Catholicism really represents. Thank you for helping me understand why my mother who was devout catholic ended up in mental institution for a good part of her life. I’m free from false religion even though I’ve been away for many years but now that I have prayed this prayer satan has no more hold on me. Thank you Jesus!!!

    I believe the Roman Catholic Church has much error. I believe there are few who have a true understanding of salvation. I do believe then, that there are some who do have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. I always hope that their eyes will be opened to the error of the RC church and turn away from it.

    I honestly hope you understand the true meaning of the Roman Catholic Church. I am a Catholic and I am a true Christian. You paint us out to seem like evil people who are doomed to hell. It isn’t fair at all. I came to this site for insight but instead I feel judged and rejected.
    Catholics are not horrible people that worship idols and saints. You can try doing a deeper research or talking to a catholic or visiting catholic sites.
    What you people make us out to be simply isn’t fair.

      Go to Catholic sites. The folks here seem to have a bad attitude about Christians, as well as a bad case of indigestion! I do not believe they are Christians after reading this. Probably voodoo.

          If you are a Christian, you are to renounce the devil, not the Catholic Church…which is by no means perfect. No person or church is perfect. Creating division among God’s people makes Satan very happy , keeps him doing his job. I suggest forgiveness and love instead of hatefulness.


        2. Anonymous

          A simple search will lead you to see that the Catholic Church is the true church of Christ. We do not worship Mary, simply read our catechism and literally all of your claims are debunked. How can one claim to be a Christian whilst making false claims?

          I do not agree with most Protestant teachings, yet I do not deny them as children of Christ. Please stop spreading a lies and take the time to truly read what the church teaches. Most of your Protestant teachings come from her.

      Where can a catholic look for words that would lend a person to argue against what is being said here … I need knowledge and wisdom to discern through this.

        Catholic Apostolic Church – 2000 years unchanged from Christ until now.

        Protestant church – man made by known heretic Luther, 2500+ denominations that all interpret the Holy Scriptures through their flesh. Take scriptures out of context to attack Catholic doctrine. Believe the early Christians (Catholics) were wrong. Lacking in critical thought and brain cells…

    I believe in one God,
    the Father almighty,
    maker of heaven and earth,
    of all things visible and invisible.

    I believe in one Lord Jesus Christ,
    the Only Begotten Son of God,
    born of the Father before all ages.
    God from God, Light from Light,
    true God from true God,
    begotten, not made, consubstantial with the Father;
    through him all things were made.
    For us men and for our salvation
    he came down from heaven,
    and by the Holy Spirit was incarnate of the Virgin Mary,
    and became man.
    For our sake he was crucified under Pontius Pilate,
    he suffered death and was buried,
    and rose again on the third day
    in accordance with the Scriptures.
    He ascended into heaven
    and is seated at the right hand of the Father.
    He will come again in glory
    to judge the living and the dead
    and his kingdom will have no end.

    I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord, the giver of life,
    who proceeds from the Father and the Son,
    who with the Father and the Son is adored and glorified,
    who has spoken through the prophets.

    I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church.
    I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins
    and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead
    and the life of the world to come.

    If I were not a Catholic, and were looking for the true Church in the world today, I would look for the one Church which did not get along well with the world; in other words, I would look for the Church which the world hated.

      Didn’t everyone hate the Westborough Baptist Church, in the good ol’ US of A!?

      I’m a Christian btw, so I’m half joking. But this raises a serious point. Loads of Protestants hate Catholics and the Catholic church. But we have to look at these things in recourse to scripture, context and often prayerfully.

      It’s been said the ‘true’ church constitutes people throughout the ages and today who simply follow, obey, worship, love and have a relationship with Jesus Christ. That’s what I go with. I consider myself a Christian long before any denominations or this or that.

    Jamal, I am member of roman catholic family.At first it did not make any sense for mary worshipping,idol wordship,prayer to angels,necromancy(in the name of praying to dead saints),popes etc.I become aware of praying Mary and requesting saints and angels and mary for mediation prayer is necromancy and idolatory by reading by your reading your blog.

    I did not know it is serious sin and do these kinds of things it without knowing it.When I knew it I still do it unwillingly.

    Jamaal in reality I was coward,prideful,wicked,overly lustful and hyprocrit person.

    I wanted to denounce roman catholicism and pray for my family to denounce roman catholicism and should never fall into cults and false christianity,occult etc.Please pray for my family members to know the truths about roman catholicism by the grace of holy spirit.

    Jamal I need your prayer to know the true nature of mural paintings.I felt the feeling of bloodlust from mural painting of krishna from about 13 December.I wanted to tear the mural painting but I did not tear and burn fearing backlash from my parents.More I see it becomes tormenting to me.

    Please pray for my family members to be aware of spiritual warfare and ask the lord to show the dangers of indulging in abomination against Jesus Christ.
