How do I pray
Want Jesus? Here is a prayer for salvation
And I say unto you: ask, and it shall be given you; seek, and ye shall find; knock, and it shall be opened unto you. For every one that asketh receiveth, and he that seeketh findeth, and to him that knocketh it shall be opened. "If a son shall ask bread of any of you that is a father, will he give him a stone? Or if he ask a fish, will he for a fish give him a serpent? Or if he shall ask for an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your heavenly Father give the holy Spirit to them that ask Him?" Luke 11:9-13

The following are prayers are on how to pray against witchcraft, the occult, the Jezebel spirit, and other abominable things in our lives which seem to be much more prominant today than ever before. These are prayers to show you how you can renounce those things which have become pillars in your life. They may be printed off and recited as they are. You may include your name in them. However, you must mean what you say and say it sincerely to God if you want to be healed. It is also highly recommended when renouncing such things in our lives that we say them in the presence of another Bible believing Christian. If you have not yet been saved and accepted Jesus as your Savior, then you need to go before the Lord and say the prayer of salvation before beginning any of the following renounciation prayers.
Many of these prayers will say to renounce "going back to Adam" and all of our ancestors. There is question about whether this is appropriate or not. I have copied many of these prayers from a deliverance ministry which I will leave the name withheld. These prayers are only guides. You do not need to break curses off of dead ancestors. Jesus already took care of that for us. There may be things you will want to add to these prayers also. Feel free to write them out to fit whatever you need to renounce.
→ You must be a born again Christian for the renounciation prayers to work as the curses are broken in Jesus' name.
→ You must believe what you are saying as you confess it with your mouth.
And it came to pass, that, as he was praying in a certain place, when he ceased, one of his disciples said unto him, Lord, teach us to pray, as John also taught his disciples. Luke 11:1
Pray in private as to not make it public.
"And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Verily I say unto you, they have their reward. But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father who is in secret; and thy Father who seeth in secret shall reward thee openly." Matthew 6:5-6
God already knows what we need, want, and desire.
But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions as the heathen do, for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking. Be not ye therefore like unto them, for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of before ye ask Him. Matthew 6:7-8
Jesus set the example for us on how we ought to pray.
According to Matthew 6:9-13, therefore pray ye in this manner:
Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done on earth, as it is in Heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. For Thine is the Kingdom, and the power and the glory for ever. Amen.
In times of prayer and mediation, do not try to think about nothing. "SET YOUR MIND," Paul says, not, "Empty your mind." Set it on Christ, not on earthly things. One phrase from God's Word can be taken and repeated quietly, asking that we may be given. . . the spiritual power of wisdom and vision, by which there comes the knowledge of Him. -Elisabeth Elliot, Discipline: The Glad Surrender-
