How do I pray

Renouncing Freemasonry


Prayer of Release for Masons and their Descendants[1]

If you or someone you love is a descendant of a Mason, I recommend that you pray through the following prayers from your heart. Don't be like the Masons -please read it through first so you know what is involved. It is best to pray aloud with a Christian witness or counsellor present.

Begin prayer

"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 honour my earthly father and mother and all of my ancestors of flesh and blood, and of the spirit by adoption and god-parents, but I utterly turn away from and renounce all their sins. I forgive my ancestors for the effects of their sins on me and my children. I confess and renounce all of my own sins. I renounce and rebuke Satan and every spiritual power of his affecting me and my family.

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, avarice or greed, and the pride which would have led my ancestors into Masonry. I renounce all the fears which 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 "Tyler", "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."

1st Degree

"I renounce the oaths taken and the curses involved in the First or Entered Apprentice degree, especially their effects on the throat and tongue.

In the name of Jesus Christ, I now pray for healing of .......... (throat, vocal cords, nasal passages, sinus, bronchial tubes etc), for healing of the speech area, and the release of the Word of God to me and through me and my family."
